Is the smart money on Casey?
Who Will Challenge Tiger?
By Kickntrue on 6/17/09
Who would you put your money on to beat Tiger this weekend at Bethpage Black? The sentimental favorite will be Phil Mickelson but the smart money would have to be on Paul Casey. Casey has vaulted to 3rd in the World Rankings with 3 worldwide wins and a 2nd place finish so far in 2009.

Paul Casey Could Be The One

What about Geoff Ogilvy? #2 in Fedex cup. 2 PGA Wins. #5 in the World.
or Tim Clark, who's #1 on tour in scoring avg.?
I think it will be someone that nobody expects... Brian Gay is playing some fine golf right now. They say Bethpage Black is for the long hitters. What people like him, Sean O'Hair, or David Toms. Toms and O'Hair both have 6 Top 10's this year, Brian Gay has 4 Top 10's and 2 of those are wins.
Keep an eye on Zach Johnson, he's clearly flying under the radar.
i followed tiger for a chunk of holes, it kind of goes without saying, but he looked incredible. after watching them practice on tuesday it was clear that ogilvy was completely unconscious, if he strikes it like he was yesterday he'll be right in the thick of things. i also wouldn't count out justin leonard.
sergio looked BAD. he took about a half dozen shots on the 3rd hole and missed the green on all of them, on 16 and 17 he flubbed a couple chips and didn't make any solid putts from any substantial distance.
anybody else impressed or disappointed with what they've seen at black thus far?
Come on Dustin Johnson! Hell, I just want to go play golf in S. Carolina.

How many players will be in the field at the beginning of round 4? What's the forecast? Will round 4 be Sunday or Monday? Who picked Rocco last year? Geez, take a guess. Tiger is, after the first round, 10 back. If everyone is lucky that won't make him focus even more. You have got to love this game.
After watching the second/third round my money is on Duval he is one cool customer and seems to be focused, I don't think tiger will be a factor this year.
