4 legs good 2 legs bad
Considering that 7 or 8 years ago he was thought to be a lock to break Jack's record, it is sort of like he's blowing a game in the bottom of the ninth. Not that he doesn't still have a chance to get there. But I will not be cheering for that to happen. I'd rather root for Jordan Spieth to break the record.I mean, I get why people don't like him. But it's not like he's blowing a game in the bottom of the ninth here.
The subtext of the anti-Tiger cheering is that he won't get to 18 majors, so he's somehow failed.
Anyway, it looks like we're going to have a fantastic leaderboard heading into the weekend. Dustin Johnson currently leads, while Luke Donald, Jason Day, Zach Johnson, Adam Scott, Louis Oosthuizen, Retief Goosen, Charl Schwartzel, Justin Rose, and Jordan Spieth are all in contention, along with some other guys. Matsuyama birdied 7 of his first 10 holes today.
Anyone who appreciates great golf is doing themselves a disservice by only watching when Tiger is in contention.
