Well NBC seems ready for Tiger's round as they break out the Rage Against The Machine...
WOOOOOO! I'm ready for some f'ing Golf!!! I like Rage as much as the next person, but I don't know if a Golf Major is the place for it. Tiger is on the course though and I'm sure the rage is kicking in after this tee shot and subsequent double bogey on the first...
He has since followed with a bogey on two and he's not looking good at all early on. I guess all of the NBC comparisons that NBC made between Tiger and Big Brown before his round might be coming to fruition. No matter how annoying they were.
And Tiger is back in a three way tie for the lead after the 10th. It's he, Westwood and Mediate all at one under. Now it's getting interesting. And he has the lead after the 11th and the crowd comes alive.

“How I Play Golf by Tiger Woods and after you’ve poured through this I suggest you pick up How I Compose A Symphony by Ludwig Von Beethoven and you’ll have exactly the same chance as achieving the standard of the author.”- Bob Costas on Tiger Woods book
"Look at him hack at that. I've never seen him play a hole like this in his whole career."- Johnny Miller during Tiger Woods' double bogey adventure on hole one.

"Els can't seem to mount anything today."- Roger Maltbie (Via Mal)
"This week Karlsson is 8-under on the back and 4-over on the front."- Dan Hicks
This just after he announces that he just birdied to go to +2. Math class is hard, huh, Dan? (Via Mal)
"And there we have it. Tiger Woods on the prowl."- Dan Hicks (I wonder how many times that quip has been used?)
"Tiger's putting the heat on him and he's melting."- Johnny Miller
"I think it's very important that he [Woods] does make birdie......You know as they say about the lesser team, you let them hand around and they'll make a three on you at the buzzer."- Curtis Strange
"This is like watching the last laps of a NASCAR event and the car has a flat tire".- Johnny Miller (Via Mal)
