    We were just saying the same thing. SI/CNN.com has a good sequence of shots though.

    AP photo editor on duty said he was watching the golf when it happened and said "Damn, I hope we got that."

    They didn't.

    I made a point of teasing to PGATour.com, per 2under's recommendation.

    What are you trying to do, 2under, impress some potential employer or something? ;)

    It's football season down there. Forget the Presidents Cup.

    2under is, as his name suggests, all about the golf.

    it only was the best golf moment since woody was banging his putter on his head in 1997. besides, how can you write the headline "U.S. takes a bath on day 2" without Austin in the drink?

    I'm here in Montreal, so I'm not sure if it was on TV or not, but a little heads up in case it wasn't: Woody just walked up onto the 14th green wearing a SCUBA mask, crowd chanting his name. I like this guy a lot.

    He's definitely not about poker winnings... but 2under is accurate when describing his totals at the end of the night

    Speaking of gambling...played at the same craps table with Woody a while back. He was wearing a US Open hat, windbreaker and shorts (always weird to see the pros in shorts) and it appeared no one knew who he was. When it was his turn to roll he threw a winner, I said "nice shooting, Woodrow!" and got a slight nod from him. Gotta like the guy...can't think of many players on tour today who would be shooting craps at night in the middle of a tournament. (Yeah, there's Daly, but he wouldn't be at craps, he'd be at the $100 slots in back.)
  12. That was 10 years ago? Jesus Christ, I remember watching that live and listening to the announcers crack up. I was thinking about this the other day and figured it was like 3-4.
