PGA Championship Round 1 Open Thread
By mustang6560 on 8/11/11
** UPDATE ** Tiger Woods is no where near the top of the leaderboard now at +5.

It's deja vu!

Tiger Woods is currently in a five-way tie for the lead at three-under par with Ross Fisher, Bubba Watson, Steve Stricker and Bill Haas at the PGA Championship.

Could Tiger finally end his 22 month win-less drought and his three year major-less drought this week at the Atlanta Athletic Club?

Feel free to use this post as an open thread for Thursday's round.

As quickly as Tiger climbed to the top of the leaderboard, he fell off just as quickly. He fell victim to the par 3 15th and double bogeyed - OUCH!

Anybody but TW, please.

They can call #15 a par 3 if they'd like... but it's in name only. While double certainly hurts, I bet that's really only about a single stroke lost to the field vs 2.

And 16th too. Even Par again.
Bubba leads now, but he is coming to 15 and 16 now too.

Those two holes and par 7, but playin par 8+ already

I liked Paul Goydos' comment that AAC has a "three shot par 4 and a drivable par 3".

gpickin says:
Wow. Rio just played the last 4.
We was 2 over into 15.
He shot
3 over 6 on par 3 15
2 over 4 on par 4 16
1 over 4 on par 3 17
2 over 6 on par 4 18

Went from 2+ to 10+ in 4 holes.
OUCH!!!

Is there a golf tournament today?

Kickntrue says:
Maybe 15 isn't so hard. Bubba just treated it like his red headed step daughter.

SteveMM says:
Woods is even now ... tied with 17 other golfers for 20th. Bubba birdied 15 and parred 16, and is tied for the lead at -4.

Why is it that you can always find Brendon de Jonge's name near the top of the leaderboard, yet he never wins?

another double for tigger on the 18th

tiger left his putt on 1 a single revolution short, another bogey.

Kickntrue says:
Wow- at least Tiger isn't playing as bad as Ryo... +15 and the damage aint done. OUCH.

homermania says:
Dang, Ryo. I almost picked you for my fantasy group!

Swingem says:
TW is neck and neck with JD at +3. All 4 wheels have come off for Ryo, and think he just dropped his transmission.
8/11/11
 
Swingem says:
Looks like Tommy 2-gloves is trying to give Ryo a game, and he just got to 15. Fun stuff.

Kickntrue says:
I think it's officially time to update this headline. At this point- it's beyond misleading for someone looking for info...

All aboard the Bogey Train. I think the PGA has taken it upon themselves to brutalize these players since the USGA didn't really care to this year.

Trav says:
@kickntrue - +1, but the first line still looks OK ...
8/11/11
 
mustang6560 says:
Updated. Who would have thought John Daly would be ahead of Tiger at this point?
8/11/11
 
TeT says:
Thanks for the leading headline there... He was what, 1 under when you posted it? They were the only 5 players on the course maybe?

TeT says:
Go SC10!!! Ok hes not tearing up; but gotta root for the current active OOBer
8/11/11
 
mustang6560 says:
Look at ol' Stevie leading at six-under thru 10. How is he bogey free at this point?
8/11/11
 
Kurt the Knife says:
"he's five-over thru 13"

hmph. Usually only takes me 3-4 holes to reach that.

homermania says:
I didn't think I'd be looking forward to next year so early today.

TeT says:
check out Tigers shoes.. is he wearing cross trainers. Really... no way!!! Don't know about you all, but I would almost rather play barefoot than in running shoes...

Will Tiger be the next Ryo Ishikawa?.....Did I get that the right way around?

TeT says:
Stricker thinks hes in Illinois.

gpickin says:
Wow, Bubba's round is interesting
PAR PAR
BIRDIE BIRDIE BIRDIE BIRDIE
PAR PAR
BOGEY BOGEY BOGEY BOGEY BOGEY
Went from -4 to +1 in a flash.
Dang, tough might be right.

legitimatebeef says:
Steve Williams is currently T8.

legitimatebeef says:
Whoa, Bubba just made five bogeys in a row.
8/11/11
 
Swingem says:
TWs no Ryo! He's got a long way to go to get to +15 and only one hole left, but don't count him out.

homermania says:
77 is a great Talking Heads album. Not such a great way to start a major golf tournament.

mustang6560 says:
What's up with Rory's wrist? I missed it, but the announcers are saying he might pull out...
8/11/11
 
srogers13 says:
OK, who had Jerry Pate beating Tiger?
8/11/11
 
mustang6560 says:
Looks like he hit a root with a practice swing. Sucks he may have to withdraw.

Kickntrue says:
"the announcers are saying he might pull out..."

/the reason why sex tapes shouldn't have announcers.

TeT says:
Can you imagine the golf channel guys doing the on screen play by play/color for Porn... they could probably make that unwatchable also...

mantajim says:
Ouch!!! WORST round ever in a PGA Championship for TW

TeT says:
PGAs Website Live video link usually seems to be the smoothest feed for me... Did anlyone else check out the 360° Cam (currently on 15th green) Pan it around and check out the hot chick behind the camera.. Darn I think she left..
