It’s not that I don’t have anything to say, but as any project nears completion, most of my focus is on that, and I find it hard to post on other matters while my attention is occupied.
That said, of course everyone will be following or watching the afternoon coverage of the WGC Bridgestone, mostly because of one storyline:
Can Tiger Woods win his first Tour event in nearly 5 years, on one of his most dominant courses, and in the last year it’s held at Firestone CC in Ohio?
I’m pretty sure Wax Nation citizens David and humbray, both hailing from Ohio, will be focused on the weekend’s events, and I’ll have the TV on in the background as I work on the video.
TW tees off in less than an hour as I write this, and he is currently 7 strokes off the lead. Firestone is very open to low scores at the moment, so he’ll need to go low, as Ian Poulter and Tommy Fleetwood have already made it to -11 nearing the end of their 2nd rounds.
With scoring machine (when he’s on) Justin Thomas at -10, it looks like the winning score is likely to be in the high teens below par, if not -20 or better if conditions hold on the weekend.
I’ll say right now that there are a lot of high-power names between the lead and -4, which is T18 right now.
So, some big numbers needed if TW is going to pull it off. And he’d better hit it straighter than he did coming home yesterday, I’d add. You don’t win many events coming from behind relying on 50 foot bombs and miracle shots from behind trees and deep in bunkers with that many good players in front of you.
I’ll leave this post up as an Open Thread for anyone who has thoughts on the tournament, or anything else they may wish to toss up on the board.
Lunch for me, and have a great Friday, everyone!
