Yeah sadly that's Justin all over - always teases us in the first and second rounds - usually the early pace setter and then boom he falls when he partners a quality player like Woods or Mickelson :sad:

If there's going to be a Brit I reckon Justin could be the one but I can't seriously see anyone stopping Woods. Luke Donald has started too shit as wel. Maybe David Howell still has a chance though?

Appleby will bottle it being in the final group with Tiger. I don't think it's a foregone conclusion that Tiger will win it by any stretch of the imagination. Even someone like Mickleson, if he shoots a 70 to get to +4 it could be good enough.

Looks set to be an amazing final day :rocker2:

I was watching his presser and the journalists basically took the focus away from the fact that he was leading. Instead they continued to drill him about how it feels playing with Woods in the final round, whether he is going to feel any pressure etc Appelby was clearly pissed off at them but had to keep answering the questions :lol:

Well Done Zach. Really expected him to choke towards the end but the way he held his nerve was incredible, have to give him credit. The way he played the back nine won him the tournament. Tiger was off his game and seemed grump all day, he absolutely cracked it on 17. Justin Rose choked when he knew he had a chance. Appleby had a disappointing day, too many doubles and that triple has cost him this week, he played a real solid round, wasn't for hole 1 and that laz tee shot into the water at 12 he could of won. :sad: Have to wait another year for an Australian to win.

I also find it amusing when sportsmen "thanks the lord" for their win as well
