The chances are very slim, but I hope Tiger wins this tournament. Winning this one would be just what he needs to get back on track. Not that he's even playing bad golf. Bad for Tiger maybe. Come to think of it i'd actually like to see Steve Stricker win. If not Stricker then Tiger.

I found myself pulling for Tiger, something I can't recall doing in a LONG LONG time. It would be great to see him regain some of his lost confidense, maybe winning, or at least advancing far in this one will do it?

Did Lefty pull out of this one, or just have a 1st round bye?

It's funny, 3 top tens in his last 4 tournaments, yet he's not playing well.

I'll take 75% top ten finish's on tour my entire life no problem.

Not playing.

He might be in the other tournament that's going on this weekend...let me check.

Nope, not in that one either, must have taken the weekend off.

So, do you guys think McIlroy will become the number 1 player in the world this week? Donald is out already and the points are close. Not sure what it will take for him to take over the no. 1 spot. Maybe 3rd round? Anyone know? If you ask me, Rory is the best player in the world atm...of course opinions are like *******s. :)

I like Rory. I think he's the next best thing for golf since Tiger. Is he the best golfer in the world right now? I don't know...but he's damn good for the game of golf, i know that.

Stricker wins his second match!!!

Tiger is all square through nine against Nick Watney.

Ryo Ishikawa who beat out Bill Haas yesterday coming back from a 3 down with 5 to play deficit lost today to Lawrie.

Kyle Stanely is even through 8 with Snedeker.

Nick just holed a nice 20 footer for birdie on 12 to win the hole. Now 2 up on Tiger through 12.

Tiger came up short on the par 3 and it would've made the green and been close but it got sucked into a bunker. Splashed out to about 4 feet, but nick made the birdie putt.

Match play is so tough to predict. The 65th player in the world isn't that far away from #1. Any given day. It's over the course of a year, two years etc. that the better players average out.

My boys Watney and Stricker are still in. Stricker won this thing before he was GOOD.

Furyk gagged against DJ. Had him 3 down at one point and DJ made bogey, on a par 5, and Furyk STILL gagged it to him. Not ready for prime-time yet.

My last player in the field, Stanley, got owned again by Snedeker. I really hope KFS doesn't have to face Snedeker again the rest of the year. I just know the USGA, Augusta National, and the R&A will pair them in the first two rounds now during the majors. If Stanley keeps folding to him, his year may be over.

Hopefully Watney didn't use up all his skill just to beat Tiger. There are a LOT better players left in the field than Tiger that he still has to go through.

Again, Tiger was able to hit a few shots, unlike last year. But he still can't putt.

I think it's time to give some money back to Nike and go back to the Scotty. He only won 13 majors with it. How sour could it really have gone?

In the post-round interview, TW was talking about his putter. Said if he let it release, everything went left. If he tried to hold it off, he'd block everything right. You could tell, he has lost all confidence in his flat-stick.

Tough to see Stricker play Mahan. I like both. Would have preferred them to be in separate brackets.
