    Okay, since there hasn't been one that I've seen yet, you people must not think it's a major.
    But it is turning out to be a helluva tournament. Phil and Sean O'Hair in the final twosome. O'Hair birdied the last three holes Saturday. This kid has steel balls, and he'd be a great story, given his background. Sergio, Olazabal, Luke Donald, Aaron Baddeley, Chris DiMarco, Tom Clark and Geoff Ogilvy are in the hunter. Peter Lonard made a double-eagle on the second hole Saturday, and there have been a bunch of chip-ins and hole-outs in this tournament. NBC will be on the air 2-7 with only four minutes of commercials per hour.

    Yeah, I know ... Tiger is out of it and will be done with his round before NBC comes on. This is the one course he can't overpower.

    The kid was classy about it after Saturday's round. Said the past is in the past but didn't rip into the old man. Hard to believe such a nice kid had a dick like that for a father.

    That's because it's not, regardless of what Tim Finchem and Deane Beman say. It's a fantastic tournament with a great field and probably the most recognizable hole in golf, but it's not a Major.

    I wonder if phil and his family practice the "run on the green celebration" the night before when he's in contention.

    I doubt they need to practice it anymore.

    Phil's "happy mother's day" mention a second ago made me ill. I really want to like him but he just seems so fake. great golfer though, and a good win. He played great today.

    Speaking of Mickelson's family, is it just me or his wife terribly overrated in the looks department?

    she was great a few years ago before all the kids. I remember the phil-amy shot in SI's swimsuit issue a few years back.

    Holy Quadruple-Bogey, Batman! The 7 at No. 17 and bogey at 18 cost O'Hair more than $700,000. I'd be thinking about that for a LONG time. I don't care who you are.

    Gotta give O'Hair credit for talking to Maltbie. I'm betting a lot of guys might not have.
