    Good call on the high 5's, SD. I've always thought the same thing. Actually, when that clip at the Masters in 2005 is shown where the ball hangs on the edge of the cup and then falls, their high 5 always takes away from it.

    Should be a fun day tomorrow. I think I might be coming down with something that won't let me come in to work tomorrow.

    I'm also pulling for Rocco. He's so real. I love the guy.

    It's amazing how much better the coverage of these events are on the Golf Channel than ESPN. I just flipped over to ESPN on a commercial and they cover golf just about the same way they do football. It's terrible. The Golf Channel does a great job.

    I honestly give the advantage to Rocco. How many more holes can Tigers knee take. If you compair scores today, Rocco beat him by 2 strokes.

    Tiger has played the 1st hole terrible. He doubled it on Thursday and today. If Tiger were to just par it tomorrow, it would give him a leg up. Tiger's plan has to be to get ahead early. If Rocco get down a couple of strokes I hope he will keep his composure and still play within himself. Tiger has not hit a lot of fairways and Rocco has played great off the tee. This will let Rocco get back in the match if he gets down early.
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    I think Tiger wins, but he has to make an adjustment. Mediate is capable of plodding along, making fairways all day and if he continues to play the way he has, he'll come in at or a stroke below par. Tiger doesn't need to be very aggressive; he could stick with the three wood most of the day and outplay him with his wedges and putter. Will he do that? After some of the decisions he made yesterday, I don't know.

    And I wonder what the setup will be like on the extra round?

    It will be interesting to see the approach Tiger takes. Does he try to overpower him and get ahead early? Or does he take the approach he took in the 2006 British Open just hitting fairways and greens. Given he's just up against one guy who will be steady and probably won't be making a lot of birdies, my guess is he takes the British route just trying to beat him on the par 5s.

    Tiger's knee looked fine on the celebration yesterday. Might be overselling it a tad.

    I'd say Rocco has a decent chance. The issue with the knee for Tiger isn't as much during the round it is the fact that he has been unable to practice to iron out the kinks. As Haney said, his warmup is his practice session.

    Tiger looks like he's in some real pain. I wonder what impact his knee will have in the playoff today.

    As for Rocco, while he couldn't completely hold off Tiger yesterday, he did just enough to make sure Tiger had to chase him (which he did).

    I think Rocco does just enough today to win.

    Not a chance. That's totally not Tiger's style. Winning is all that matters to him. And his celebration doesn't require torque on his knee like...say... hitting a 320 yard drive.

    Hole #1: Rocco blows a six foot putt for par and settles for a bogey. Tiger misses a semi-lengthy birdie putt, but drains a three foot putt to save par.

    After 1: Tiger Even, Rocco +1

    If Rocco can't putt, he won't have a chance.

    He could stay 40 yards short of that today and still win.

    true. late in the round yesterday he needed a putt and couldn't get one in the hole(missed short bird @ 13, missed 8 foot par on 15, missed 10 footer for bird on 17).

    The NBC simulcast is choppy and cutting out, but it looks like both golfers had a par on hole #2.

    Woods still up by one.

    Rocco just missed a hole-in-one on #3 by maybe two inches.
