Okay, here is a place for the Golfers to talk about tournaments, clubs, swing help or thoughts.

Today is the Players Championship, which I think ought to be the 5th Major. Largest pot in the PGA. The daunting 17th, which seems to bring excitement every year. At least we will get to see Sergio blow up yet again.

I am ready to see some water balls!

I am so excited for today. Tiger has never lost when leading after 54 holes in a Major. If he wins today, his 30 on the second 9 on Friday, and his eagle, birdie, eagle on the second 9 on Saturday will go down in sports history. People will talk about it like Mazeroski's home run, or Kirk Gibson's home run, Joe Montana's pass to Clark (or Taylor) Willis Reed inspiring the Knicks to win game 7, etc. It will be a defining mark that people will always remember.

At least that is what I think.

Go Tiger!

Man oh man, I am in a tournament this weekend and got to the bar late last night and saw that Tiger was leading! I thought holy shit, I bet I missed something.

Then I saw the highlights on the golf channel...............unbelievable!!!!!!!

You guys that did get to watch yesterday saw three of the greatest shots in US Open history.

Tee off at 1:00 be back later to see what happened. I might take my phone and ask you guys where they stand.

Yeah, I'm hoping to get a tee time this afternoon between 1:00-2:00 CST today, that way I'm back home in time to catch the back nine of the Open.

This is true, but I also think that Jack had players with more heart to compete against.

Palmer, Player, Trevino and Watson, among others are guys that came along and gave Jack some competition, and you didn't see any tournament that Jack was on the leader board as nearly a forgone conclusion.

When Mickelson is your primary competition, then you really have smooth sailing.

What happened to David Duval? It didn't take Tiger long to blow him away. And Tiger is twice the athlete of that fat slob Nicklaus. Tiger has shots Jack never knew were possible. No contest.

Again, I don't disagree with you.

All I'm saying is that Tiger needs someone that can come out and compete with him.

It's fun to watch Tiger, but it would be even more fun if there was someone that could be looked at as a real rival.

Right now nobody is even close. Did you notice how the announcer thought Tiger was playing too much break on the first eagle putt? He didn't say a word on the second one.

I missed Tiger's final 4 holes, and Mediate's final 5 yesterday.

You just named the only four golfers to really be any threat to Jack. Among them was the only real international guy, Player, that was any threat to Jack.

They may have had more heart, but Tiger competes against more world class golfers in one tournament than Jack faced in his entire career.

Tuned in just now...the jag fest has begun. I mean, it's as if Tiger has never won a major. A complete run down of each round complete with dramatic music.

geez...

He's won so much it's boring.

Then don't watch.

Tiger Woods is to the PGA what the Yankees/Red Sox are to the MLB.

What the North Carolina/Duke matchup is to the NCAA.

He's far and away the biggest draw/most hyped representative of the sport, he is the face of golf and will be for decades to come. Decades. In the year 2028, Tiger Woods will still be getting media-loved at every oppurtunity.

You know he's gonna get 96% of the coverage, and the commentators are going to fawn over him at every shot. Because, well he tends to make a whole lot of great shots.

But boring, not so much. If you like having the oppurtunity to see a great shot every time he swings the club, it's fairly entertaining.

I tuned into see the stuff prior to the 'jag fest'...fortunately for me I get to watch Tiger on the practice range instead of actual golf. That's pretty awesome.

you're analogy sucks. Team sports pit two adversaries...this is more than two people or entities. Of course you wouldnt really know that given the coverage.

I'll turn it off at 6pm when the collective orgasm begins, but before that, at least show golf of the other people.

It would be like tuning into watch the Chiefs, but instead of showing the actual game, they kept interrupting to show the NE team dressing in the locker room and going through pre-game warmups.

Yes, shooting 30 on the second nine on Friday, in the U.S. freaking Open is boring. Going eagle, birdie, eagle on the back nine on Saturday, coming back from 6 down with 5 holes to play, in the U.S. freaking Open is boring. Watching a world class athlete compete on the biggest stage with an injury is boring.

I think you might be able to catch some re-runs of Murder She Wrote or Matlock if you flip through the channels.

Are we talking about the same world class athlete? Probably not...because coming from behind and winning the US open is old news for Tiger Woods. You must be a fan of Phil Mickelson, I realize his comebacks are breathtaking because they are so rare.

Tiger has won Open's by 12 strokes.

Actually it is not. In every Major he has won, Tiger had the lead going into the final round. Not much coming from behind there.
