    He killed it down the stretch. Glad to see him win.

    He only won because he didn't have to face 300 yard driving Howie.

    I wouldnt be surprised if Phil studied that video of Howard's shot, changed a few things in his swing, and is now the British open champ. I hope he calls howard and thanks him, otherwise i fear his golf career may be coming to a screeching halt...... clandestinely of course.

    Tiger also took Adam Scott down with him stomping around throwing pissy fits and then when he marked his tap in on 14 instead of just putting it out he totally tanked Adam Scotts round giving it Phil

    Shit I knew Tiger was pretty good. Never knew he had that kind of effect on other players. That is wack.

    Phil seems to be a true class act. Of course i don't know the guy at all and he could be a crazy fuckin nutjob, but he really seems to come across as a genuinely good guy. I always root for him when he is in contention.


    I liked the quote of his they referencd today during the round, in regards to great golf shots versus smart golf shots. It was something like.... "A great golf shot is a risky shot that works out in your favor, a Smart golf shot is when you don't have the guts to go for it." The dude definitely lost a few tournies "going for it", but that only ads to his character if ya ask me.

    Phil would probably have 8-10 majors if he played it safe, I love the way he plays, always exciting.

    hes one of the few celebritys i like.

    also, someone yelled "bababoey" again, and this is in scotland.
    are there really howard/golf fans all over the world, or it it one guy who works on the tour?
    or does the network just dub that in for some reason?
    and why are they only airing this at 3pm when every golf fan already knows who won?




    (i reserve the right to ask more Qs later)

    great round always better to watch someone grab it instead of someone choking it away like many of these Open championships have gone
