You can tell by Tiger's eyes that he knows that he has not shot a birdie @ the 18th hole @ TPC Sawgrass since 2002.
He wanted a birdie at the last so bad this evening. He will have 2 more chances on Saturday and Sunday.
Good night to Club Tiger.

This is a little bizarre, but to some extent, we like it: a fan shouted "Light the candle!" as Tiger Woods teed off to begin Friday's round. What does it mean? Who knows?

Shouting as big-name players tee off is now a tradition in golf, if an unfortunate one. Most common, of course, is "Get in the hole!" (which is SO funny when you do it off a par-5 hole, because, you know, there's NO WAY it'll get in the hole!) It's the golf equivalent of shouting "Free Bird" at a concert: the last refuge of unimaginative fans who want to be a part of the action.
So we've seen an influx of new screams off the tee, with "mashed potatoes" and "Tiger, Tiger Woods, y'all!" edging into the mix. Could "light the candle" be a new standard? Doubtful. But if you're going to be an idiot and shout, at least make it something interesting.
see ya all at 11:35 am
Especially when recapping his shot on 16 off the pine straw......Chamblee saying he'd love to be inside his head to see what makes him so strong!! My oh my.....what a difference a day makes!!
