Tiger Wins Both Matches Today

Tiger played well enough to win his to matches today. He handled AJ Choi fairly easily and advanced to the final 4. He then beat last year Champion Henrick Stenson in the last few holes to advance to the final 2. This leaves two Americans in the World Championship 36 hole Match. Justin Leonard will play Stenson for third place.

Stewart Cink hasn't won on the tour for since 2004, in which he won twice, and Tiger is going for seven wins in seven starts around the world. It sounds like a mismatch but sometimes golf can be a funny game. Cink played a wonderful front nine today with 5 birdies and an eagle. That would of given Tiger a run today. We'll have to see what he does tomorrow.

We went to the baseball game so I didn't watch. I am so pleased that Tiger, Cink will end up 1st and 2nd. Then if Justin can win, it will be Americans, 1 - 2 - 3. Yipee!

Should be a fun day and a nice way to stay out of the cold for you!

It was perfect here for baseball the whole weekend. Horns beat VCU yesterday and today and most likely will sweep tomorrow.

Tiger is having a fairly easy time so far today being 4 up on the front 9 of 36 holes.
