First of all, what the heck is the “Dartboard”? It’s what was formerly known as the “Open Thread” — you know, where we toss out some talking points and you share your thoughts and/or observations on the day. So, Tiger is looking really, really good early in the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational. He’s in excellent position to win for the seventh time here. (continue reading…)

Play is underway in the first round of the Transitions Championship and, with the exception of a certain three-time major winner, players are struggling to make significant inroads against par. (continue reading…)
Bud Cauley had the advantage of teeing off in the morning on a breezy day at Waialae Country Club, but somewhere late on the first nine, the wind picked up. He was frustrated with some of his wedge shots, but he posted a two-under 68 in the second round to follow his opening four-under 66.

Tiger Woods is well into the final round of the Frys.com Open — you know, trying to get that W! Whoops, he really must have meant “W for weekend” in his Wednesday presser. Woods is seven shots back of leader Briny Baird.
By the way, I was cracking up at some of the comments in the last Tiger post (with all due respect to Baird): “Tiger is getting waxed by Briny Baird!” or “Forget Baird, he’s getting waxed by Roland Thatcher, too!” Yeah, I censored those a little, but you get the point. (continue reading…)
