TW's game is definitely back judging from the scores he posted. However, as everyone knows, the ball is round, and there may be someone, a dark horse, who may be "in-form" and spoil the day for all. Let's see how things develop tomorrow and hope there's a good challenge from the field to make it exciting end.

Shot of the day, 18th hole, par 5, Tiger cutting a fade with a 3 wood to reach it in 2.

Sorry it was not in HD.

In summary, it's better to be long than short, to be accurate than not, to hit the fairway rather than be in the rough, to be able to fade and draw on command, to be nearer to the pin rather than farther, to know when to be agressive and when to aim for the fat of the green, to be able to chip well when you miss the green, to avoid 3 putts......

Now that we know this, who can teach me to do all the above????

another food for thought in favor of Tiger. This is the first time the guy played this course. this might explain why he is playing is safe at the first round...

Rory escaping the rocks from Hole 18 by hitting across the lake and borrowing the rough on Hole 9.

And we're off! Day 4 Highlights.

I'll put up video as fast as I can.

Here's Tiger out of the left rough on Hole 2.

Missed that on the left waste area, next shot lands short of the green.

Tiger sinks the long putt for birdie, very much like the Tiger of old.

After Tiger dropped 2 shots, Robert Rock is alone at the lead by -13, Tiger at -11.

Hole 6, Robert hits the fairway, followed by an excellent approach shot within a couple of feet of the pin, while Tiger missed to the left rough, and hacked it out short of the green.

Looks like Tiger might drop his 3rd shot in a row.

Tiger pitches it close to scramble his par, but Robert makes his putt for a birdie. Robert is 3 shots clear at the top.

Robert drops a shot on the 8th, after a camera clicked in his tee shot, causing him to find the right rough. He cuts out for a long 200+ yards approach, which he missed the green into the rough.

Tiger found the bunker, cut it out to within 100+ yards. His approach uncharacteristically missed the green and found the rough, but he gets a lucky free drop from the sprinkler head.

Tiger chips out and makes par, Robert chips out and 2 putts for bogey.

Tiger is now 2 back.

Meanwhile Graeme McDowell makes a hole-in-1 at hole 12, earning himself a 3-night hotel stay every year for the rest of his life.

Hole 10, Tiger found the bunker twice, fairway and greenside, drops a shot, and is 2 back again as Robert pars. A bit unlucky on Tiger's part.

Hole 11, Tiger's old swing came out a bit on his approach shot, club getting stuck, and he pushes the ball into the right rough by the green, difficult spot to get up and down. Tiger looks likely to drop a shot.

Robert hits his approach shot reasonably close for a possible 2 shot increase in his current 2 shot lead.

Tiger pitches out on the downslope green past the flag for a long putt.

Which he somehow makes, the ball dropping in on the absolute last fraction of a roll.

Robert misses his birdie putt by no more than 2 inches.

One gets the feeling this was a point where the match could be turning. We shall see.

Tiger remains 2 back.

Hole 13, Robert found the upslope face of a fairway bunker and drops a shot as a result.

Tiger found the left greenside rough but hit a delicate chip close and makes par.

The gap is now back to 1 shot.

So THIS is how to hit this type of shot.

Am learning a lot from watching this tournament.

Look how still he keeps his lower body, esp his feet.
