I knew Tiger wouldn't win! (ohmygodhewasonlytwoshotsbackIcan'tbelievethatcomebackheistheman)
If there was one guy who would hit a close chip from that position, it was Mickelson with one of his Phil Phlops. I think he's now in a zone where we can forecast 4-5 career majors for Philly Mick now that he got over the hump last year.
As a disgruntled Greg Norman fan (who won TWO majors), when can we start applying the big-league choker label to Davis Love? At least someone like Norman comes close; DL3 just gets close in the final round and then spends his Sundays soiling his mattress.
Oh, and screw CBS for forcing the leaders to tee off at 3 yesterday, thus basically ensuring that the round couldn't finish if there was a delay.

I've seen more than one column stating that was the PGA's call, and rightfully ripping them for it. I have to think that with Tiger sitting there at -2 the pressure was pretty intense on those guys to make sure they didn't fall back to force a playoff, and I think that might've gone away a bit with the extra day. (Not mentioning that it was some 95 degrees yesterday afternoon and 70 degrees this morning.)

Oh, and yours truly's PGA Championship What-the-F*ck memory for 2005:
Finding out Phil won...when I was told by Ryan Longwell.
Yeah, an NFL kicker, during training camp, broke the news to me. (He's the only player I know who will actually greet us media-types on the sidelines during camp. A legit golf mark, too...and a helluva guy. There's rumors he might try to get on some sort of tour.)
