Fox is loosing their touch.

The girl interviewing the players coming off the course should be hanging from a stripper pole. Or maybe they could sign that English lass from the Viagra commercials that doesn't ever stand up? I'd love to see her interview Cory about his missed putt on the 15th.

DJ looks tough right now but I think Day will surge on the back 9. Something isn't quite right with Spieth so far.

It doesn't get serious until the turn.

DJ with a downhill chance at the win...

Dustin has had some tough beats but this one was all his. I thought from
the beginning of the round Jason Day wasn't healthy enough to win.
Congrats to Jordan Spieth (2) majors in a row and he's barely
old enough to drink

I have to say, this year's open was one of the most interesting tournaments that I've witnessed on TV. I've been watching golf on TV since the days when Jimmy Demaret was a commentator.
I rarely watch the whole coverage, but this year I watched most of it. Luck played a big part in the tournament, but some of the recoveries from bad luck shots were amazing. This bunch of players is amazing.

That may have impacted ratings. I'd have probably watched...

AARP teases Tiger Woods after poor first round at The Open

Tiger Woods might have a new rival -- and it has nothing to do with Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy or any other professional golfer.

Can't remember the last time I saw players wear ski caps and mittens during a tournament. I feel sorry for the camera operators freezing their butts off in the towers.

Oh, how the mighty have fallen. I think there are many in the media that
are enjoying Tigers downhill spiral.
from the Golf Channel

But this … this was the ideal setup. Dreams don’t come in this clearly. Here was a healthy Tiger Woods coming off his best tournament in months. He was playing a golf course that has been his personal playground; twice he has won Open Championships on the Old Course, and the first time in 2000 he played golf about as well as it has ever been played.

And the conditions were so wonderfully benign as he teed off that every single player in the three groups in front of him and the one group behind him broke par on the front nine. Earlier, David Lingmerth set an Open nine-hole recor, starting with a 29. Later, an amateur named Paul Kinnear — who told the Daily Mail, “Four weeks ago my mum was looking for a job for me as a van driver” — shot 31 on the front. That front nine was downwind, the greens were pillow soft, and the fairways were as wide as Kansas. You could not miss.

And Tiger Woods went out and shot 40 on the front nine.

Spieth leads criticism of R&A as gales stop play at The Open

Play was suspended at the Open Championship for the second successive morning as winds in excess of 40mph made it impossible for balls to settle on the greens at St. Andrews.

So what does Tiger do on a day like this?

Watch the finals on TV just like the rest of us?
Call Elin and ask for a do-over?
Go to the driving range and practice?
Count his money?
Go to a local diner for a cup of coffee?
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Nice to see Zach Johnson win his second major. He seems like a good guy.

Tiger Woods, Hero World Challenge granted PGA Tour exemptions

Tiger Woods sought and received an exemption into the Hero World Challenge, an event he hosts, later this year that will allow the tournament to continue to give world ranking points to its competitors even though Woods is unlikely to be ranked among the top 50.

PGA Championship: Jordan Spieth, Tiger Woods among five players to watch

I'll be surprised if Tiger contends in this one.

He's adding to his "legacy". He dropped another "F-BOMB"
"Since 2011 the Federal Communications Commission has fielded 22 complaints about profanities heard on golf broadcasts according to FCC records obtained by GOLF.com. Fifteen of those grievances, or nearly 70 percent, relate to salty language uttered by Tiger Woods. Here's a sampling of the complaints."

I'm not going to let him stop my enjoyment of watching this tournament. Hopefully he won't make the cut.
