I can't wait to watch this.

If I were betting on one golfer, I would take Tiger. But if it was Tiger vs the field, I would take the field.

Tiger has been bad the last 2 years and still finished 4th both times. This is his course...Phil as well.

Good chance you see Rory, Tiger and Phil in the top 10 by tourney end and maybe top 5. Should be an exciting Sunday!

Winds are supposed to pick up as the day goes in, up to 12-15 mph in the afternoon...

Phil's last to go off, could play a big role....

Tiger shooting even yesterday was huge. As he said in his post round interview, he basically got all he could out of that round. He hit some of the most wayward drives I've ever seen a professional hit. Now, he's one good round from being right where he wants to be. I don't think he can go out and shoot even again and be satisfied, but if he can get to a couple under par going into Saturday, as usual, look out.

Bubba's shot on the second playoff hole will be one of those shots that everybody remembers forever to win a Master's.

Absolutely incredible shot.

The crazy thing is Bubba had no idea where the ball was until the crowd roared...that's how deep he was in the woods. Truly remarkable shot that not many in the game can make...the way he shapes his shots is really fun to watch.

As soon as Bubba hit that shot, I texted my dad something to the effect of, 'Bubba just pissed away his chances'.

Couldn't have been more wrong. What a shot! Bubba can move the ball and hit shots like that like no other. He's a true shot creator. One thing a lot of people don't realize, Bubba plays a lot of crazy shots from the middle of the fairway. He works the ball on every shot, significantly more than most players. Sometimes I think it gets him in trouble, but in situations like he faced on Sunday, he was probably more comfortable than anyone to attempt that shot.

Good for him. He's a good dude and I'm very happy for him.

Tiger looking rough early on.

Will be on TV starting at 1. Want to see how he is swinging over these last 5 holes or so.

I've been planning on following Fowler all along, as he's my favorite player. His performance today makes that even more logical now.

I actually played the course earlier this year, which was awesome. I'm really looking forward to tomorrow!

Would just like to say, had a really great time at TPC. Got there early and mostly just checked out the putting green and driving range to get close to some of the players. Being about 5 feet away from Jim Furyk and Tiger while they talked on the putting green was pretty cool.

Phil is awesome to see live. The crowds absolutely adore him and he seems to enjoy giving it right back. Such a contrast from Tiger, who typically does everything he can to not acknowledge anyone around him.

I followed Rickie Fowler, who's my favorite player, the majority of the day, eventually going to 18 and watching the final groups come in from the hill behind the green. It's actually a perfect area to be, because there's a gigantic screen to the right of the fairway that had the NBC coverage, so you were able to see everyone finish up, but also see what was going on with the other pairings.

Was rooting for Rickie to win, but Kuchar winning was cool too. He's a classy guy, very deserving. I was very close to Kevin Na while he was leaving the range and wished him good luck. He actually seemed kind of surprised someone was talking to him and gave me what seemed to be a very sincere thank you.

All in all, a very enjoyable day. It was cool to be able to see the guys I follow every week up close and personal. I'm definitely planning on making this a regular thing, at least as long as I'm in Jacksonville.
