    yes he did. doubled the last hole yet still set a record after first 2 rounds.

    he was 10 up over second place heading into the final hole. this is tiger'esque masters like.

    speaking of masters, wasnt rory up heading into the turn and lost by 10 strokes? thats a freaking meltdown. he will need this lead just to stay afloat heading into the final round.

    I'm at work and only got to see the last two holes. He's playing more like Tiger's performance at Pebble in what 2000 where he was the only player under par and beat Els as I recall by a bunch.

    I suspect he learned from the disaster in April. We'll know in a little more than 48 hours.

    I know right, as soon as I post it he puts one in the drink at 18. Still killing it though.

    KJ is a surprise. I've got him in my pool. On the bright side I've also got McIlroy. :thumb:

    I think McIlroy learned a lot at Augusta. He damn sure has the game and he's been in contention enough that I think he can stand up to the mental heat. I think the key to his chances are how he plays tomorrow. I look for some really tough pins tomorrow.
