Lee Westwood will never win this golf tournament. Give him a nine-shot lead. You will see night and day as his golf game changes over to super conservative for two days and he will not be mentioned on Sunday.

Tiger Woods is mired 10 shots behind, and on this kind of course, very difficult to make up.

Phil needs to shoot himself into contention on Friday, but this course is not the best for his game.

This leaves a multitude of players involved in hanging around til the back nine Sunday, then whoever birdies 17 may win.

I doubt if Francesco Molinari can win at this level yet, so Ryuji Imada and Ryan Moore may make this a two man show by Sunday if they keep up their antics.

I like the Irish guy to win this one.

As I stated in the previous article the two day score of -12 as predicted was right on, and now the scoring will be a bit more difficult on Saturday and Sunday,

Two rounds of 68 win this thing now if you are within three shots.
