    20 something dudes.
    John Rahm - (He's full time on PGA)
    Rory McIlroy

    30 Something Dudes
    Dustin Johnson
    Sergio Garcia

    40 Something Dudes
    Phil Mickelson
    Henrik Stenson

    World Wildcard
    Tyrrel Hattan

    I think Rory is going to win.... but I wanted to root for Finau and put his name in.
    Also... that Kevin Chappell is a gamer.
    Has Adam Scott fallen off the Earth?

    With Tony's Finau's injury I'm swapping for Rory...

We cannot expect to experience the blessing of faith by standing inactive on the sidelines any more than we can experience the benefits of health by sitting on a sofa watching sporting events on television and giving advice to the athletes. And yet for some, “spectator discipleship” is a preferred if not primary way of worshipping." -Pres. Uchtdorf

    Oh man, Tony Finau made a hole in one on the par 3 competition, then dislocated his ankle during the celebration. Looked nasty. He had to manually push it back in place. Might end up withdrawing.

    Sergio “Tin Cup”! I was watching eating lunch at the course and people were cheering as balls went into the water. Not the most loved champion ever.

    Despite the ankle, Finau leads at -4. That ankle might only get worse on days 2-4 though.

    That's funny, I didn't notice you had done that. Tony played great today.

    I'm really looking forward to today's final round. This final paring between Reed and McIlroy could be one for the ages. I wonder if we'll see any finger pointing. I bet they've been warned to keep it civil out there.

    One of my favorite things in the world is to watch a major tournament that goes down to the wire and has top names in it. Especially if I can get my boys engaged in it with me. Today was a great day.
