The conversation picks up in the fairway.

"Hey, John, I thought I wrote her number down on this ball."

"It's OK, Boss, I got her room key. Pop me a PBR and let me show you how a man hits a golf ball, son. If you can win, I'll give you the key," Daly shouts back.

"That should motivate your skinny little ass. Try to be quiet on my back-swing, too."

Well, it might not be that colorful, then again, who knows?

Looking at the leader board, Louis Oosthuizen is in first at 12 under-par with a couple of guys trying to get close, such as McElroy, Westwood, and of course Woods and Daly.

It's quite the logjam at minus six and minus five with many players poised to strike, getting in range to catch, or pass the leader.

Daly is one over for five holes and has some ground to make up.

If the weather kicks up, it would be harder to make up five or six shots, so someone must step up to challenge the South African Oosthuizen soon, or else.

Checking the leader board, we can only hope Tiger Woods and John Daly get hot and are paired together all weekend. That would make things very interesting.

Current leader Oosthuizen is resting and dreaming of glory on the weekend. He has accomplished twelve under-par in two fairly nice days.

McElroy is nine under through three, and is expected to stay around this mark, or improve a couple of strokes today to be in the hunt.

However, McElroy won't win this event because of his inexperience at this level on the weekend, plain and simple.

Or is he really the next Tiger?

This is a good proving ground to test out that theory.

Mark Calcavecchia is hanging around finished at minus seven and is a factor, but he too will not win this tournament.

There are 25 choices left to win this thing, so let's narrow it down a bit further.

If you have a name kind of like a cat, you may have a nice weekend.
