And the monkey jumped from RM to TW on Friday. Razz 


And TW said he has a chance like Paul Lawrie who came from 10 strokes behind to win The Open in 1999. Well, he's 12 strokes behind in this case. For him to win, all 55 players in front of him have to play badly, real bad for him to walk over them. Unless he play 62 for R3, he will have a realistic chance and hope for the rest of the field to collapse. Otherwise, his task would be uphill.

Big names in golf like Lee Westwood, Miguel Jimenez, Bubba Watson, Ian Poutler, KJ Choi, Ernie Els, Ryo Isikawa, etc. missed the CUT!

TW just make the cut at position 56th and 2 over for the tournament so far ... I doubt he can win any Major championship this year ... He may have to try next year ... Is Tiger era over?? This is on everyone's mind, I guess ...

Adam Scott is -3 and position T15th in the leaderboard ...

Rory appears to be unbeatable and dominating after 2nd round ... Moving ahead of the crowded pack in the leaderboard gradually and steadily ... His new found squeeze must be giving him a good adrenaline boost before the game ...  Twisted Evil

I hope RM maintain his present form and not let the monkey jump on his back in R3. As for TW, it's so painful watching him play yesterday in R2. Shocked  Sad  pale

Do you think TW can go against all odds & re-produce what he did in year 2006 in Royal Liverpool Golf Club over this weekend?  Nike Golf

Hope TW can maintain his day1 form for sat n sun and finish strong. Not bad for someone who is sidelined for so long.

Possible but highly unlikely he will win. Like I mentioned earlier, the 55 players in front of him have to play real bad and allow him to walk all over them, not to mention those in the same position as him. So technically zero chance. But it would be great if he can, you never know... Laughing

I doubt anyone can give Rory a good fight unless the latter falter in the final round ...  Very Happy

Yeah Garcia climbing with half a round left, 3 back.

The Molinari brothers are doing very well too, both in the top 10 right now.

Rory a bit shakey, looks like it will come down a lot to the 2 par 5s on the last 3 holes
