    was down 3 to start, so he decides to go -6 through 8 to take a 2 shot lead.

    Good thing, too, b/c I hate Vijay. :)

    Five tournament wins in a row. Just when I think he can't do anything else to amaze me, he does.

    I suspect this is a special win for Tiger overcoming a three shot defecit before Vijay knew what hit him.

    An amazing stat is when the announcers said he would be the leading money winner just counting his last five tournaments. Amazing, truly amazing.

    Now it's time to lead us to a Ryder Cup victory.

    He just doesn't make bogeys anymore. It seems every tournament, he has a streak of 30-40 holes without one.

    Pair him with one of the rookies, and just tell them to bomb away and try to make birdie on every hole.

    Rookie, veteran, it doesn't make any difference. He intimidates all of 'em.

    The Ryder Cup is the one place he has not dominated. Maybe this year. He is amazing.

    I haven't looked it up, but I think he has a winning record in his singles matches. Him & Furyk played pretty well together the last time. I suspect Lehman will pair them again.

    I'm a big Tiger fan, but this is getting boring. Somebody needs to step up and challenge him, or his legacy will be tarnished due to a perceived lack of competition. Then again, Vijay shoots a 61 followed by a 68 and Tiger still punks him.

    That's a good point. Over the years Tiger's had short-term rivals, e.g., Vijay, Ernie, Mickelson, etc. but nobody has put up a long term challenge to him.

    In my eyes the names I mentioned are pretty close to Tiger with their physical games. Where he blows 'em away is in his preparation and the mental game. None of 'em are a close second to Tiger betweeen the ears.
