You just have to know that Phil Mickelson was praying for lightning yesterday as his game continued to melt in the hot NJ sun. Last night's rain has softened the greens and the humidity & temperature are both down too. Another player who will benefit today is Vijay. He is perfectly capable of tossing birds at 17 & 18 - in fact he has birdied 18 all 3 rounds. Ben Curtis wore NY Giants gear and proceeded to cough up a 77 and take himself out of contention. Good sign for the real Giants. Think Tiger really wanted to stick around another day today ? The weather has pretty much guaranteed that the field won't come back to him but this is golf, so stranger things have happened. He can't afford to not be here. Play starts again at 10:05am - back later with more thunks.....

Got to love the NFL Network and their primetime Saturday night pre-season football coverage. It is like NCAA Hoops Tourney coverage. And to have it all again on Sunday morning during my workout ? Excellent morning viewing choice. One thing does irk me about watching preseason football from regional feeds - if you are the visiting team, you are virtually ignored by the announcers. You might as well watch without the sound.
