Gmac actually missed a putt he should have made. I'll let it slide this time.

This is just a weird event for me and honestly I am a little turned off by it... sooo much advertising everywhere. It's a great field and it seems like a nice enough course. It is just overbearing. Where are the neon signs?

It looks as though Tiger is poised to be the #3 ranked golfer in the world in a few hours. Phil drops to #6. It's shaping up to be the year of the Euro. If Tiger comes back and does struggle a bit, there's no reason why a Gmac couldn't take his place. Martin Kaymer will be the #1 in less than 6 months.

He better keep pace. I look forward to seeing what Kaymer does in the WGC events and Majors this year.

Would also like to point out that world #1 Lee Westwood opened with a 69 and then put 3 rounds in a row over par. In other news, his twitter feed must be broken for the last 48 hours or so. I kid of course.

You think he will keep pace? Next weekend may be a highly watched event.

Yeah, that's not good.....Losing form right now isn't the best of times to do so.

To me its still early. I never put a ton of stock in the early events and that actually includes Torrey next week. They count just as much though, but with many of these guys limited schedules, it seems as though the 1st couple of weeks are different.

Im just glad that the golf season is upon us and it looks to be filled with great names at the top that can all compete. Plus, I mean lets face it. TIGER WOODS IS BACK! Just ask Jake. hehe

The point is, I'm excited that he's back as well. Golf's not the same without him, I can certainly recognize and appreciate that.

Anyway, this Martin Kaymer is impressive. He was in trouble so much off the tee yesterday and his recovering abilities were phenomenal. He's got the strength and the touch to get it done. Too bad he has the personality of a piece of paper. He's just so robotic! And he wears the khaki a little too much, lol.

Yeah, we spent some time with him at Doral last year and that is a very good description.

Good call with the robotic observation. Like the Hugo Boss shirts he wears though. Definitely fit him well

You know Kaymer rocks the skinny jeans after his round. Whatever he rocks he sure has some serious game.

If I had his game, I'd rock skinny jeans.

And Kaymer's outfit today would look so much better if he was rocking some navy slacks as opposed to khaki's.

And I wouldnt make fun of you either. You know, youre right about his game yesterday. He wasnt that great off the tee but he kept scrambling and making putts. While Gmac kept missing putts. Had to be one of the worst putting days Ive seen from Gmac. He was just off yesterday.

Are you watching this morning? Gmac looks like he's ready to secure yet another top 5.

He really is. They have about the same amount of emotional output as well. Both are khaki wearing robots.

Well you just missed him pout in about a 15 footer for birdie on a par 3. He's just solid. If I could have anyone's game, it may be his.
