Woods looks strong. I'd place him in the top 3 unless he implodes again.

Outside chance: Adam Scott.

Very tough to predict given the weather.

Leaders could easily go back while someone from the back shoots under par.

Watch out for McDowell is my pick.

Reminds me of the orlimar trimetals of way back. Those things where ridiculously easy to hit, even the driver.

It was a par 5 shot onto a green, so I assumed that it wasn't his tee shot.

Yeah. As White/asian mentioned, it was from the fairway on a par 5.

I took a couple crappy pictures on my iPhone of the head to give an idea of what it looks like. This was post-round, so I apologize that it's dirty.

Did 18 holes yesterday by myself. 3.5 hours and that was still being stuck behind a few groups so it wasn't tooooo bad.

Driver was ON FIRE. I couldn't miss the fairways and if I did, it was only by a little bit. Every par 4 I was within 80 yards to the pin after my drive, quite a few only 40 out. There's one shorter par 5 where I was only 125 out after my drive. I also hit GIR on two of the three par 3's. The middle one I push blocked and missed 10 yards right.

My putting was fantastic with the new putter. Somehow I'm able to line my shots up even better than with my "Dual alignment Visual Performance" putter before, the new one is just a dot. Perhaps because it's simply a dot that I take more time and am more deliberate in my putting approach. The NC Portofino is just fantastic. I'm going to change the grip, I think, but other than that, it is perfect.

Where my game fell apart was on my approach shots. I couldn't tell if I wanted to dial back on the PW or go full boar on the 56*. Which has me thinking that I need a 51* or 52* wedge in there. I'd be 80 yards out and take two shots to get on the green. Terrible. I somehow saved with a 85 though, thankfully to only falling apart with one 3-putt. Great weather and still caught the end of the PGA Championship when I got back to my parents.

Rory really brought the fire on Sunday.

I've been at work this past week. Ready to get home and play some golf. Not looking forward to the 100 degree heat though.

Slash, one thing I've been working on lately is hitting a knock down with my pitching wedge. If your gap is really that big (mine was about 30yds between PW and 56) then is it def worth it to purchase a gap wedge. I like having the option of hitting a high soft gap wedge or a knock down pitching wedge depending on the conditions.

Pretty decent video, learning to take your wrists out of it and making an easy arms swing will help with that inbetween distance.

Glad the new putter is working out for you.

I was hitting a few knockdowns, but I don't practice it enough to quite know my distance on the PW for it. Overall my iron ball striking wasn't the best yesterday, adding to my distance woes.

Steve Stricker is a great example of hitting wedges with little wrist action. It helps take the spin off the ball.

Pitching wedges these days have stronger lofts like 45* or 46*. A 50* or 52* wedge is a good investment.

Practiced hitting 60-70 yard knockdown shots with my PW last night. Also practiced pitching and chipping a lot as well. Feeling much stronger about my approach game.

I also hit those satisfying monster drives too. Pured a few 5w shots that were monster hits as well.

I got two Clubhouse passes to the PGA Barclays at Bethpage on the Saturday. Super stoked!

I was working on my 320 yard shots off the deck last night. Was hitting them effortlessly. Using an old POS club, too.

I usually have to back off to hit it 320. Most of the time it's about 340ish
