Who ya got?

I think Tiger is the kind of man that is going to absolutely go nuts this weekend. In essence playing for the memory of his father, I think Tiger is going at attack this course like noone else can. Most of the greats have the ability to channel more focus in situations like this. It would not surprise me to see Tiger win this thing by Saturday and spend Sunday paying tribute to his father on Father's Day.

How great would a Tiger/Phil Sunday showdown be? It would likely be the highest rated golf telecast in history.

Tiger, coming off a nine week layoff to mourn his fathers passing, with the final round on Fathers Day.

Phil, looking for the third leg of the Mickel-Slam.

I took the following so far.

$10 to win $80 on Vijay Singh
$10 to win $250 on David Toms
$10 to win $250 on Luke Donald
$10 to win $600 on Aaron Oberholser

Im playing Boulder Creek Sunday morning at 8:10, then heading back to my mom and stepdads all day to let family watch Nicholas while I watch golf.

I can't wait.

couldnt agree with you more pup.

I cant wait either Rich. I played Raymond Memorial out here on Tuesday (shot 48 41) and I think I am going to head out tomorrow morning too. The killer in that round was that I opened with a snowman on a simple par 5. There is no reason to score worse than 5 or in the worst case, 6. The misery on that hole bled over onto #2, which I doubled. Had I played those better, could've easily shot 85. My son had his first birdie put last round. He reached a 165yd par 3, not bad for an 11 year old.

ummmmmm, Maybe Tiger wasn't quite ready? Does he rebound today or is it just too much emotion and rust to handle?

If the wind keeps blowing like it did yesterday, even or +1 or +2 could win this thing.

Tiger's still right there. Clearly though, he's gotta find a way to shoot 69-70 today.

Furyk - 70, Mickleson - 70, Singh - 71 ... these three all right there on the first page, figure to be on the first page Sunday.

Also, two of the best European players, both failing to menace at majors thus far in their careers, David Howell & Miguel Angel Jimenez both shot 70 yesterday.

Geoff Ogilvy and Mike Weir at 71. Ogilvy has been awesome all year, Weir is a good majors player, and has been playing better as of late after a '05 injury.

Some names to watch at 72. Ames, Appleby, Van Pelt. Appleby is long overdue to win a major, and wrongly gets left out of the "best never to win one" talk. Ames is playing great, and Van Pelt is ready to break out with a big win as well.

Couples, Zach Johnson, Harrington, Pampling, Clarke, Herron at 73.

Els at 74, defending champ Campbell at 75, Tiger and DL III at 76.

The way this course is looking, anyone at +5 or better come Sunday could be very much in this thing.

Tiger +2 through 6 on Friday, not looking good.

Tiger ... 76/76 and misses the cut. First time in 37 majors. Amazing.
