Way tto go MM. Hope he gets his W this year.

QQ 7-over, not playing very well. Is he still injured? Seemed to be struggling ever since he turned pro.

from what i understand, QQ has been quite ill of late. I wouldn't be surprised if he's still not a 100%

As for MM, he told us that he's not gonna change his putter this year. I hope he sticks to that magic wand cuz he seems to be canning those putts!

the magic wand is in the head and not in the hands.

was able to watched MM early this morning 3am before playing Golf.

I liked how he, MM, hits his wedge.

even my wife is impressed at MM.

Juvic Pagunsan is not in the country. He is currently playing in Dubai with R-Mac, John Daly etc.

still a long way to know who is going to win. The pin placement are tough and greens are fast.

Mars Pucay, a Fil Pro golfer, used to worked as caddy @ Wack Wack.
So he should play well there

Yup Wack Wack East Course...need very sharp, precise short game especially the 7th,8th and 9th holes.

MM parred all 3 holes, which augurs well...Mars Pucay got a 3xbogey on 7th hole

Good luck to MM!

MM currently leads at -5 after 16 holes in Rd 2. Only 11 players shooting under par... whacky course? Smile

its a really tough track. to think that 6 over makes the cut.

there are courses that he will do particularly well. those with tight fairways but not too long a course will suit him pretty well. In particular New Delhi, Laguna Master's course, Blackstone and Wack Wack.

MM knows what he needs to do this year - he picks the course and the tournaments that he thinks he can win and he will play to win. for those that he has little chance, he makes cut and tries to finish as high as he can without losing sight of the other target this year.

as for the other target....i promise to bring him to the fish and chip joint outside the royal lytham....haha

I think MM will have to be very very focused to win tomorrow becos the crowd will be behind the local boy. I remembered last year the American guy really had to overcome the odds to beat the local competitor.

We singaporeans can only root for MM from in front of the TV screens.

Hybrid, what do you think?

he is the most experience in the lot and he have already outlined his plan in his interview. for him to refer to 2006/7 events, its a positive step in the right direction.

if you have the chance watch what he does tomorrow on those irons shots and putts. you should see clearly his visualization combined with a practice swing before he steps up and bang!

hopefully i can get news while i am away.

he is using this putter for a very special reason...and of course its bend 69 degree and at 2.5 loft.

As a social golfer, i do wish to see fellow golfers just spend a bit less time in pre-shot routine. Just keep the golf going. But this is my personal wish lah.

I just happy cos i using a YES too. Hahaha.

MM using 69* lie? I am a bit surprised for his height...

Sorry folks, I OT liao.

Miguel couldnt handle the pressure playing with the more experienced one.

Seems like it is a difficult course, worst score card submitted was 128 for the tournament.
