This young man's level of play at ANGC is incredible.

In 17 competitive rounds there, he has been the leader or co-leader after 9 of them. To put that in perspective, in Tiger's entire career at ANGC he has led/co-led after 9 rounds (and he has four green jackets).

Speith has made birdie or better on almost 30% of the holes he's played at ANGC.

Whether he wins this week or not is anyone's guess, but at least up until this point he has torn that course apart.

The really interesting thing about it is that Speith isn't typical of the golfer that has traditionally fared well at Augusta. The rough there is more penalizing than it used to be, but that's still a course that rewards the big hitters. Speith's midrange and short games, as well as his scrambling ability are so good that he can compensate for his lack of distance off the tee.

He's just a really fun golfer to watch.

Reed and Rory in final pairing tomorrow. If you watched the last Ryder Cup, you know that could be fun.

Two of the most unlikable douchebags on the tour, but two of the most fun to watch.

Not really a fan of either of these two, but I've got to pull for Rory in this twosome.

What I'd really love to see is for Fowler to overtake the both of them.  Whatever happens, I'm hoping for an exciting finish to the tournament.

Heeeeeere comes Speith. Started the day 9 back, and he's about to eagle 13 to close to within one.

18 tee shot got him again! That's twice this week his tee shot didn't get to the short grass.

Agree....he's got all the game. He is the new era Phil Mickelson....Like Phil he's always right there at the end. He'll break through one of these days and win several like Phil.
