Go TIGER. What a round of golf he put together today. Should be a good day to watch golf on sunday.

My observations.

Tiger's knee is hurting big time. As Johnny Miller stated he would drop out if this wasn't a major.

The dude just makes amazing shots. The chip in on 17 was unbelievable. If it don't go in he is looking at a bogey.

I wish Rocco would not have faded. His personality is what we need in golf. Hopefully the birdie on 18 will help for tommorow. I think its good that he won't be paired with Tiger on Sunday.

I think Westwood has the make up to play with Tiger. Very solid over 3 days.

My prediction (don't go to Vegas with this one) Westwood will play solid. Tiger's knee will hurt him on the back nine and Westwood will win by 2 shots.

No matter what it will be entertaining. Tiger in the final group always effects the rest of the field.

Tiger put on one heck of a show on the back nine yesterday. He looked like he wanted to quit after some painful shots and then would be grinning from ear to ear after eagles and chip in birdies.

It's really too bad he had to play that first hole. Starting off with double bogeys 2 different rounds on the first hole hurts. 2 bogeys and he would have gone home today the winner.

Oh well, you have to play them all, it's just that the back nine gets the glory.

Oh yeah, I sure felt for Phil Mickelson carding a 9 on that one hole yesterday. Too bad TV had to keep showing that one.

Rocco may pull this one off today, he is up by 1 with 3 holes left, been watching all day at work and this round has had some very nice shots by both players.

Bummer! I really wanted Rocco to win. He had his chance though. Talk about a fun weekend of golf!

I agree that it was to bad Rocco didn't pull it off. So close and then the lose.

A great match by both guys. They both had chances throughout to seal the deal. I don't know about the rest fo you but I like the 18 hole format for the playoff....

    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
