If they go out in threesomes tomorrow, mickelson, haas, keegan play together tomorrow - the same three that were in the playoff at riviera last year - pretty neat. (I instantly realized that when looked at the standings - I guess that's weird that I remember that.)
I can't wait for Riviera though - it's on my short list for favorite "regular" stop all year, the leaderboard is always great, and it has my favorite hole on Tour (#10 - so fun.)
hey hogie who is in first place?
oh yeah that's right.
suck it phil haters.
Birdie on #1
If Kai ever gets hurt, the Redskins should sign Paddy Harrington.
Phil is the man, the reception he is getting is amazing
helluva golfer, even a better person.
The 16th is awesome. More tournies should do fun stuff like that
The Augusta members' blood pressure is consistently 20 points higher this weekend than during normal tour events.
I think it's super-gimmicky, and it's totally fine for this one event and it gives the tournament some personality (heck, I'd even want to experience it), but definitely wouldn't want to see it every week.
This tournament always reminds me of Verne Lundquist saying "Quite a large and...socioeconomically diverse crowd here today" in Happy Gilmore.
my dad is pretty old fashioned (not OGW level), but even he said that 16th is the best hole he's ever seen live in person at a tourney.
The video is great, no one person without a beer in their hand. I'm kind of neutral on it but it looks fun. For one tourney a year it's pretty cool. Bubba tossing the hats was great.
To quote Bill Walton, "take it home today big fella." Don't screw it up Phil.
LOL @ James Hahn doing Gangham Style after a birdie on #16. Pretty funny.
Edit for video:

Phil just made a ~60-footer on #7 that was at such an awkward angle broke enough that I think he literally putted it through the edge of the rough. Game over. I guess the only drama will be if he can get hot enough on the back to shoot a 64 and break the 72-hole scoring record.
Sucks for Snedeker too - he's 3 shots clear of third place, and probably deserved to win as well as he's playing. Any other week...
Morning Drive guys were saying this morning that Vijay is meeting with Finchem today and they are expecting a lengthy suspension, possibly through Match Play/Players/Masters. Not sure how the Tour can suspend anyone from playing in the Masters though.
i wonder if that's where his "back injury" came into play.
nonetheless, when vijay is on a roll, he's a tough customer.
Tee times and celebrity pairings for the weekend. LOL at Dustin Johnson playing with Gretzky, I bet that gallery is pretty big. Phil playing with the head of Barclays, all the big guys playing Monterrey today. Guy I grew up with playing with Jeff Gove on Pebble.

Random bourbon-induced thoughts:
Looking at the World Golf Rankings,
1. Rory McIlroy (NIR) - 12.23
2. Tiger Woods (USA) - 9.16
3. Luke Donald (ENG) - 7.76
4. Justin Rose (ENG) - 6.53
5. Louis Oosthuizen (ZAF) - 6.52
6. Brandt Snedeker (USA) - 6.25
I'm fairly certain Brandt Snedeker would get up to #3 in the world with a win tomorrow, and probably would get up to #4 as long as he doesn't collapse and finish outside of the Top 5 or something. Pretty crazy for a guy that was an "eh, he's a pretty nice player"-type this time last season. As an aside, whoever devised the two-year rolling WGR formula did an fantastic job of combining past results with current form. It's very rare that I think a player's current ranking is way out of line.
Also, Tony Romo (with Jordan Spieth) are leading the Pro-Am going into Sunday. Jason Day/Jim Harbaugh are also in the Top 10, and Robert Garrigus/Justin Verlander made the cut as well.
I always kinda hate the Saturday coverage with all the attention the celebrities (i.e. Bill Murray) get, but the leaderboard is very attractive, and obviously Pebble Beach is spectacular - tomorrow should be fun.
#14 is one of my five favorite holes on Tour. What an awesome (and true) Par 5.

Kuch off to a good start at Riviera today, -7.
I guess the magic has come out of Phil's new driver.
Driving Accuracy 21.43%
Luke Donald had a pretty absurd shot today.
There's a bracket challenge on pgatour.com this week.
I know sometimes the final is boring, but I love the match play event. Charl schwartzel better come back against henley.
I kind of wish they'd put Poulter in Tiger's bracket, but have to settle for being on same side of the draw. Coming off the Ryder Cup Poulter has to be full of confidence in match play.
My best guess at first day upset is Bubba losing as a 2 seed.

Weather is brutal there. Cold, windy, rainy. Fun to watch
Jason Day laying the wood to Zach Johnson. 6 up. Would be nice if the scoreboard showed how many holes they've played.
