It was good for Tiger to have a good 1st round. Really should help him. That said, unlike pretty much any point of his career, I still feel like a complete blow up round is possible. What made Tiger so great was his ability to grind and not blow up. It wouldn't surprise me if he throws up a 76 tomorrow. If he doesn't, and he can put up a couple of 71's the next few days, he'll have a great chance to win it on Sunday. I would guess the winning score is going to be within 2 strokes of par.
Yea, I could see that too. Tiger hasn't really been able to string together 4 good rounds, for the most part, since all of his issues started.
Now, the counter to that is Tiger is playing better than he has in a while and his swing looks great.
But, he is in the afternoon group today and that is the tougher time to play the course, so we will see.
