I haven't given it as much attention as it's deserved, but I've kinda had an eye on the Buick Open throughout the day. Tiger Woods just buried a tricky birdie putt on 18 to squeeze into a 3-way playoff with Jose Maria Olazabal and a rookie Welshman named Nathan Green.

When Olazabal, chilling on the driving range, heard the roar that let him know Tiger would be in the playoff with him, a look came over his face that said, "DAMN it, I don't deserve this." Green actually held the outright lead earlier in the day before bogeying three holes in the incoming nine. Now he's in a playoff against Tiger, who's 8-1 in overtime through his career. Off the first tee, though, the rookie's the only one in the fairway.


It's been a sick leaderboard all day long, with names like Sergio Garcia, Phil Mickelson, and Jesper Parnevik all in contention at various points throughout the day. I'm rooting for Tiger to finish this thing off in sudden death, because he could probably really use a brand new Buick.
