Some random thoughts:
I missed day 2, as I was at a convention for my other hobby—toy soldiers.
This Open Championship has the potential to be the best ever, with five quality players within two shots of the lead. I’ll be on the road all day tomorrow, but have the Tivo recording for me.
Tiger NEVER loses a lead, but I’m still sticking with Jim Furyk on this one. Because Tiger will be two groups in back of him, he can put the pressure on by scoring well. Then it’ll be interesting to see if Tiger sticks to his game plan, knowing that he has to match Furyk.
Is this the event when Sergio loses the “Best not to win a Major” title? I was amazed at his play today, considering his recent struggles.
I think I counted three 3-putts for Tiger. That’s not good for the Striped One.
It would be fun to see Argentine Angel Cabrerra follow in Roberto Di Vicenzo’s footsteps as an Argentine winner.
Another fun scenario would be to see Tiger and Chris DiMarco in a playoff for the title. Something tells me that DiMarco would not let that one get away.
Or how about a race to the finish between Tiger and Sergio, echoing Medinah in 1999?
