Random Fun Fact last Time Tiger Missed a cut @ a Major He finished the season winning 7 out 8, (the one he didnt win he finished 2nd) and won 2 majors in that span.

Since he missed the cut at Turnberry he's won 2 straight.

Nice stats. He is leading, 5 under. Same group Harrington at -4. One more hole to play. Half the field yet to T up. Will see who gets it.

You take off a little concentration and the course bites you. If you are not careful enough soon you will miss the cut. So unkind. Unlike in any other sports. Sampras could not work hard when opponents serving and yet finish them off in tie-break.

I wonder how Anand, Karpov or Kasparov can/use to stay on top while a game is in proceeding.

Stayed up all night watching El Tigre hold on to the lead. Impressed by the Korean player.

The lead is just two.

-8, Harrington is in the group in front.

A two under should win this for Tiger. Hopefully he plays it safe an let others crumble from sunday's pressure. Will be traveling so won't be able to watch the ending.

Congratulation to Mr. Y. E. Yang, the first asian ever to win a Major tournament in PGA. He totally out played Tiger Woods in the finishing holes setting up his win with a majestic chip that earned him an eagle on the 16th before slaying the Tiger in style with a birdie on the 18th. Throughly deserved victory by the 37 years old South Korean whose win will now serve an inspiration to aspiring young and old asian golfers.

Hahaha ... Young Eun Yang did it! As much as I like Tiger, it was great to see a fellow Asian win a major. Then again, Tiger too is more Asian than anything else.

I have close Korean and Korean American friends and they rock! Fun loving, passionate, and loyal to a fault as friends, they love their golf and we'll see many more champions from the ROK!

Did you just quote yourself and replied to that, dude? Anyway, I watched the last few holes and I was amazed at TW's inability to convert 10-15 footers into birdies. His putter was the reason for his loss. We all know records are meant to be broken but I must admit it felt weird watching TW struggle with his putter when it normally wins him tournaments. His comeback from the knee surgery has not been spectacular but it's still too soon to judge.

Hmm!! A two under was there. Even a one under would have done it.

Good thing i was traveling and didn't see the last 17 holes. How could he miss the putt in the first hole?

He missed more than just the putt in the first hole. He was over-reading the breaks in every hole. He'll bounce back.
