    Rory misses 3rd cut in a row

    Tiger has missed 3 in his entire career

    Having said that, I'm tempted to put some money on Rory in the next major as a player with his talent has to bounce back sometime and the odds will probably be a bit more tempting

    is this another tease from tiger that would end in disappointment at olympic fields or is he finally ready to be in contention on the back nine on sunday at a major?

    Don't think his game is quite up to an US Open, still too many unforced errors, think he could have a real chance at the other two though.

    I think he's certainly closer this time around than he was heading in to the Masters in April. Watched his press conference after he won yesterday, he reckons he's more confident hitting the ball higher and landing it softly than he was a month or two ago.

    Sounds like Olympic Fields is gonna be ridiculously tough. I really hope Tiger wins tbh, mostly just to shut all the people up who keep going on about McIlroy and Fowler. They might be the future but right now they've still got nothing on Woods.

    yeah he is definitely not doing it consistently week in week out yet...so the u.s open is likely to be a letdown for him...why do you think he has a better chance at the open? also who are your picks for the u.s open?

    when does tiger not sound confident? and that was right after a win...i would love to see him win but i don't think he is quite there yet...i can understand the hype about mcilroy but packaging fowler up with him is ridiculous...they are just not at the same level regardless of fowler's recent hot streak and mcilroy's corresponding ice-cold one...

    Yeah Fowler's 84 on Sunday certainly showed he's not the finished product yet.

    You're right, Tiger probably isn't quite there yet but I'd suggest he's close enough for everyone else to start thinking about him. When he's hitting it as close as he was in that last tournament he isn't far away.

    If not Tiger then I'd really like to see someone like Westwood or Garcia win. Or Cabrera. He always seems to contend. But probably my biggest hope is Ernie Els - not sure if he even gets an automatic qualification though so might not be there.

    Ahh, just realised it's at Lytham, hmm, 200 bunkers might not be ideal, still his course management is good, should think he'd be able to hit a lot of irons off the tee, unlike at the UsOpen.

    Dunno about my picks, Kuchar, Mahan could do well, and Rose could be the surprise packet. All hit a lot of greens.

    So D. Johnson won last night, brilliant that after backing him for ages I'd given up after his injuries. Still interesting to see him in form. Shouldn't think he's an USOpen contender, but should do well at Lytham, the way he plays in the wind, along with Paul Lawrie who really could shock a lot of people with his second major.

    Westwood incredibly impressive with his new Irons though, he's my New pick for the USOpen.

    If woods wins this it will be an incredible piece of will-power, and will make us start talking about all-time great sportsman again. He's just been incredibly in control on a course that doesn't really suit him, other than the length. People often ignore the immaculate guys in greatness, the Nicklaus, Laver, Federer, Bradman, Jordan, Pele types, because they weren't faced with adversity, even if it was self-inflicted, Ali, Best, Maradonna types are often the one's spoke up.

    Tiger was almost the perfect golfer once, but coming back would make or a bigger story.

    Lee could be in a decent position at the end of the day, would pile in at 5s, if I didn't already have major wedge at 13s.

    Gone for McDowell about half an hour ago, got a reasonable chance I would say.

    Yep, bizarre really as you'd think his game was the antipathy of US Open play, but he seems to get it done.
