63, WEE HEE!!!!
I didn't watch a second of the round today (had my own round to bogey away), but the highlights pretty much say it all - Tiger Woods makes this game look like Hungry, Hungry Hippo.
El Tigre impressed everyone, shooting a 7-under 63 that included a bogey and an intense lip-out on the final hole for the all-time scoring record at a major. My uncle made the best point about the near 62 - if that putt would have dropped we would have never been subjected to any Johnny Miller 63 talk ever again.
I guess instituting a "Tiger just being Tiger" phrase to the golf world would be the most definitive of the past two weeks, with Woods carding a 63 in the final round of the Bridgestone and now at Southern Hills, a place Tiger had only broke 69 once in eight competitive rounds.
This round was reminiscent of Tiger's third round at Oakmont this year, except the putts went in today and the score reflected his dominance over the current golf world.
Beware field - the guy looks pretty 2001 to me.
