Wow!!! How good is this indeed!!!
And that's why Fehrety is the greatest - "if he pulls it out of anywhere it's not going to be the bag"
And Phil does.
This is bad ass
that's why these guys are pros !
That dude freaking out on the side of the hill after Phil hit his putt was awesome. Fat $#@!er almost rolled on to the green.
Each week is better than the next.
Three solid drives with Phil being the short man off the tee. Might be advantage Phil if he hits his approach stiff.
Wow. Keegan's got the green light here. Haas just chunked that one waaaay short.
One more hole!
And it's hard to imagine a better hole than the 10th at Riviera CC for a sudden death hole.

I'm amazed Haas was able to pick out a line in those long shadows. What an awesome finish to the tourney.
great putt by Haas. dude had icewater in his veins. he knew it was a dagger but stayed composed because Phil & Keegan still could tie him. fun end to the event.
what a finish !!!!
left being lefty
keegan showing he's got game
haas just grinding away (mrs haas looked pretty good out there)
wow that was some great golf. i'd love to see keegan win his 2nd major this year, got to step up man !
Those 3 will be reppin the U.S. in the Ryder Cup.
I gave up playing golf and watching over-bloated millionaires tap little white balls around several years ago. I highly recommend it. You'll be amazed at all the life that's out there. Same with basketball and baseball. Total waste of $#@!ing time. BTW, I have an original set of Taylor Made Burner Bubbles for sale, if anyone is interested. And a lot of MLB baseballs.
Great theater today. Been a fan of Haas's ever since I read Feinstein's Q School book.
Keegan Bradley drives me nuts with all of his pre-shot routines.
bradley might have a goofy pre-shot routine but he has some potential to be a multiple winner of majors

Some morning-hungover thoughts
It's good to see top players playing and dealing with the older, historic courses. You watched these guys struggle with the turf, the marine layer, all the little quirks, it was fun and I hope it continues.
Pay attention to the flags next to players names, there's been a strong American presence so far. 7 for 7, but this was the first tourney with a strong Euro presence. More to come, hopefully from the Americans.
$#@! the long putters, or should I say, $#@! anchoring the putter into your gut. Haas was great, that was a clutch putt, but lets put the short stick back in these players hands. I'm not convinced Keegan would be that great, if he and his nerves couldn't anchor that putter.
Sergio had a strong Sunday, Dustin Johnson's short game and mine are comparable, Phil has had a nice lil run, Keegan has the look of a boy who is scared of the dark, yet has won a major and is 2-1 in playoffs. I don't get it.

the domination that tiger once held was down right scary
For reals, 92% is sick and if you look at the past tour events this year, you can see just how hard it is to hold onto the lead. Another amazing number, is he's had the lead after 54 holes 52 TIMES and he's in his mid 30's. Insane
Sergio Garcia is ranked 15th in the world? No $#@!ing way.
