PGA Tour: The Barclays in New Jersey

36 posts in this topic

Halfway through the 3rd round, Rickie Fowler, Kuchar and Webb Simpson are all tied on top at -10.

 

But ESPN keeps telling us Tiger is "lurking"....  just one small problem. He's 4 holes ahead of the leaders, is +1 for the day and is in 17th place...

 

He'll probably be 7-8 shots behind by the end of Round 3, but if you listen to the talking heads, he's "in the hunt" or "prowling just behind the leaders" or some such other idiot analogy or pure fabrication just to get viewers.

Can this place ever have a golf thread that isn't littered with people pissing and moaning about Tiger Woods?

Sounded to me like people are complaining about the Tiger coverage, not Tiger.

I haven't caught one minute of this tourney... :(

Maybe tomorrow, but I'm playing with my Dad in the morning so it depends on when I get back...

We have, when discussing our own golf skills, equipment... and those tournaments Tiger isn't entered.

I've quickly discovered that his back only hurts when he hits a crappy shot....

Yea. He definitely complained of back problems before the tournament started on the off-chance that he'd hit an awful shot on the final day back 9 while down only one. Good call.

    • I also want to take this space of internet to announce that I'm still so fuging happy we got Monk. 
    • Not really a fan of MCW. Not even sure if he is better than Sessions tbh. I don't think Teague will want to be a backup much less take the MLE, but who knows- might not be a market for him. Livingston would be incredible but don't think we have the money and why would he leave Golden State unless they don't offer him anything.  Here's someone that's not a free agent, but I would not mind us taking a shot on: Dante Exum. With the Jazz trading up to get Donovan Mitchell Exum looks to be ousted as the PG of the future there. He's had his struggles but he's extremely talented and has never really had a great mentor like Kemba would be.  I'd give them Sessions (lol), Jeremy Lamb plus a couple second rounders. Would not give up any of our core: Batum, MKG, Cody, Kemba, Dwight, etc. Wonder if they would bite on that? It's crazy that second rounders really do become valuable. If we had an extra second we could have had Mason + Bacon likely.  Part of me wonders whether or not we will try to have Monk run some backup PG. That would be a mistake IMO. He needs to be running off screens all day.
    • I wrote to both Tillis and Burr - the thing that pisses me off the most about this is that the savings that this bill creates in the budget are not used for deficit reduction - they are nothing but a hand out to the wealthiest among us and corporations in the guise of creating a more robust economy.  These heartless lying  bastards make me sick.
