Absolutely Remarkable!!!

Tiger Woods heads into the weekend at The Open Championship, otherwise known to us Americans as The British Open, played on the birth of golf St Andrews in Scotland with a 4 stroke lead over home town favorite Colin Montgomerie. Hard to believe Tiger is 11-under par, played a near flawless round on Friday, a bogeye free 67 and is looking like he is going to win his 10 career major.

What are your thoughts on Eldrick Tiger Woods and his chances for #10 - his quest for the Claret Jug

Hard to imagine how well Tiger is playing after his supposed slump as many would call it. Actually, I'm not too surprised at all. A links course plays advantage to players who hit the long ball off the tee. Why? Because it rolls a hell of a long way. That could also be your disadvantage, but at St Andrews, Tiger will be driving par 4 greens every day. Plus he is an excellent lag putter, so those typical 100 ft eagle putts become 3 ft birdie putts.

Tiger will win the Claret Jug come Sunday and I wouldn't be surprised to see him smash the lowest round under par record in a major championship, which by the way he holds @ 19 under - which by the way he did it at St Answers in 2000.

On a side note--it was moving to see the reception Nicklaus got--10 minute standing ovation--this morning. Something else.

I couldn't agree more - very deserving reception for the greatest golfer of all-time. Will that status change? Can't say, Tiger has the potential to, but, 18 majors won, 19 additional 2nd place finishes in majors, just all around stud.

Can't go by money because money back then was nothing compared to today.
