feel he will win again - including Jack Nicklaus (but what would he know?).

If Phil can win a 47 with bad arthritis, Tiger can win as long as that back stays.

BTW, had a friend that played in a Pro-Am with Tiger and he is concerned that the young guys are out driving him - which is a bad thing. If he dwells on distance (despite the fact he is consistently over 310 yards) that will cause him to overswing or try to tweak clubs.


Distance doesn't appear to be a problem for him so far. His drive on #5 went 321 - longest of the day for anyone on that hole.
Great chip there!

Amazing hands.
Can't stand Tiger...  
SFGFNCGiantsFan : 3/10/2018 2:51 pm : link
But golf is much more compelling when he's in the hunt.
Tap in birdie at #5  
BlackLight : 3/10/2018 2:53 pm : link
Tiger now 6-under - 3 shots back of the lead. Leader Corey Connors is on fire, though - has three birdies so far.
Nearly holes a long chip at #6  
BlackLight : 3/10/2018 3:03 pm : link
Tap in par. Still at 6-under.
Par at #7  
BlackLight : 3/10/2018 3:18 pm : link
Still 3 back.
Leader Corey Connors has dropped two shots in his last two holes  
BlackLight : 3/10/2018 3:30 pm : link
So he's back to 7-under, putting Tiger and a handful of others only a shot back.
Tiger with a shot!

..beauty!
Tiger flops a chip out of the rough at #8  
BlackLight : 3/10/2018 3:42 pm : link
and roles it in 30 feet for Birdie. Tied with Connors at 7-under, and also Snedeker who also birdied #8.
Another birdie bombed in at #10  
BlackLight : 3/10/2018 3:53 pm : link
Tiger to 8-under, tied with Connors for the lead.
On #11, Tiger's going to have about 8 feet  
BlackLight : 3/10/2018 4:05 pm : link
for his third birdie in a row. Would give him sole possession of the lead.
Misses the birdie putt  
BlackLight : 3/10/2018 4:09 pm : link

Tiger lips out a birdie putt at 12  
PhiPsi125 : 3/10/2018 4:21 pm : link
Bad luck...one shot behind the lead.
Best ball striking from him  
section125 : 3/10/2018 4:30 pm : link
I've seen in many, many years...the improvement since Riviera is astonishing.
Tiger drops a shot at #13  
BlackLight : 3/10/2018 4:31 pm : link
Now 7-under, two back. Justin Rose leapfrogs him into 2nd place.
Actually, now 3 back of the lead  
BlackLight : 3/10/2018 4:32 pm : link
Connors makes another birdie to go to 10-under.
Tiger nearly holes a 50-foot eagle put at #14  
BlackLight : 3/10/2018 4:51 pm : link
Drains the birdie to get his shot back. Now 8-under again.
Not a good ending here for Connors  
SFGFNCGiantsFan : 3/10/2018 5:31 pm : link
.
Tiger pars #18  
BlackLight : 3/10/2018 5:43 pm : link
to finish with a 67. Will probably miss the final pairing tomorrow. Will like be one shot back for the start of the final round.
Man, I really canít understand why there is so much interest in

Yeah itís really stupid when I read people saying that. The ratings bump and crowds are all the evidence needed that plenty of people have an interest.

Itís must see tv tomorrow.
I was a big Tiger fan  
pjcas18 : 3/10/2018 6:32 pm : link
heard some funny stories from his Stanford days from a former colleague of mine who was at Stanford with Tiger and Greg Comella (ex-Giant from Wellesley MA) - they had a one or two year overlap.

I think calling him El Tigre sounds kind of juvenile, but whatever, arguing Tiger, who revolutionized the game and almost singlehandedly was responsible for the golf boom of the 00's is irrelevant is a silly argument.
Also not a fan of calling anyone a name that isnít theirs  
UConn4523 : 3/10/2018 6:49 pm : link
El Tigre, Big Pali, etc. they are awful.
Eldrick is listed as 9/4 to win the tournament tomorrow  
BlackLight : 3/10/2018 7:10 pm : link
at the Westgate sportsbook.
Interesting

Tiger Woods: club head speed measured at 129.2 MPH on 14th hole (fastest swing recorded by any player on PGA Tour this season).

I agree but is El Tigre a thing? I though it was just some random dude on BBI making a thread about Tiger. Much ado about nothing.

The entire media and MLB referring to David Ortiz/Arias as ďBig PapiĒ is effing stupid. How the media fellates over that moron is one of lifeís great mystical.

Years and years ago, "El Tigre" was what Tiger was being called by one of the anchors on Sportscenter during his golf highlights.

But I won't have it said that I'm upsetting people. We will take UConn4523's suggestion and only refer to Eldrick by his given name from now on.

If anyone flouts this rule, I'll report them and see that they're banned.
Iím just busting balls  
UConn4523 : 3/10/2018 10:08 pm : link
but Iíd never actually say ďel TigreĒ. Sounds awful but have fun.
Lol, you gotta chill Black Light.  
PhiPsi125 : 3/10/2018 10:20 pm : link
The name Tiger will do just fine...or whatever you want to call him. Really not a big deal.

Hey, don't tell me - I started out chill. But here we are anyway.

He and Snedeker are paired together again at 8-under, one back of the leader, Corey Connors.

The quality of Tiger's game right now  
BlackLight : 3/11/2018 4:49 pm : link
is about a half-notch lower than it needs to be to win this tournament. Six holes left, but not many birdie opportunities unless he's willing to take risks.
Tiger will have a chance to birdie #14  
BlackLight : 3/11/2018 5:00 pm : link
and he needs it.
Only manages a par at #14  
BlackLight : 3/11/2018 5:06 pm : link
Needs to go 2-under over the final four holes to force a playoff.
Made it very exciting at the end  
dpinzow : 3/11/2018 5:55 pm : link
Made a 44 footer at 17 to give himself a chance, and just missed a 39 footer to force a playoff. Overall a great tournament for tiger
