Was it. Look like nike to me leh...anyway saw him made a few shorts on TV. Even the commentators were commenting abt his swing not as sound as last year. As for TW, I think he should ditch that Nike driver, all his mistake come from that driver.

That's what I thought.....14 majors with SC, needless to say more. Still struggling with his putting, think yips developed.

Maybe it's the new Nike commercial that jinxed them both. On another note, the new Nike European signing Olesen seem to be doing pretty OK though...

Looking at those 2 on the course... I guess all the cups were safe in Abu Dhabi.

Sorry guys. I was knocked out yesterday at the hospitality tentage after about 8 beers and some wine...

Today followed Kaymer and Grace's flight. Quite uneventful front nine for Kaymer - one bogey with the rest all pars. Sparking back some life at the back nine now with 2 birdies.

Justin Rose is playing very consistently today. Having dropped one shot at the first few holes, he is charging back now at hole 15, leader at 12 under.

Elsewhere, Thongchai is playing very well today as well.

Day Two:

Carnival atmosphere as usual. Great tournament


Fancy giving yourself a shot at playing out of the Open's bunker


All eyes on Rory, he arrived at the practice greens first, at about 1030, 1.5 hours before his tee time of 1205




Then the eyes turned to this man. Very gloomy face.




All set at 1205pm.








Then I was distracted and spent the next 3 hours here at the deck...


Next thing I know, Tiger and friends are walking about the famous 18th

Day Three:

With the world number one and two absent, I found more space amongst the crowd to do my routinized 9 hole walking with a flight - with Martin Kaymer and Brandon Grace.

Grace's gf/wife/partner/friend quite hot.


Justin Rose's Caddy Mark Fulcher


I overheard the conversation between Mark and Jason Dufner. Dufer asked "so same arrangement? 12?" Mark replied, "You are on". Wonder how many zeros their "12" implies...




The uneventful Kaymer-Grace flight

2 more holes to play. 420pm.

Only 2 flights left at the last two holes.

As things stand now, Donaldson from Wales at 15 under would be the new champion. His playing partner Howell is at 9 under.

The last flight of Rose and Olesen didnt play too well today. Rose at one under for the day and 13 under for the tournament, currently in second spot all by himself.

His playing partner Olesen is at 12 under for solo third.

10more min for the conclusion.

Solid photos and great field report, JT! Totally awesome. Thanks for giving us the inside scoop Smile Wish we could be there with you but we enjoyed your photos nonetheless.

You heading to Qatar to watch the next one? Smile

Bro Techno

Qatar boring leh.

Would probably be playing Abu Dhabi Golf Club this weekend and try the rough myself. Also, normally after the tournament the range balls have a good selection to "steal' from. I remember running away with 3 dozen Pro V's "practise" balls last time

Smile

After that, cant wait to come back home for CNY and gladfully play some golf at NSRCC with rain! Any CNY games jio me leh!
