Phil, Keegan look loose; Kuchar rules Ping Pong

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks
Spent a good chunk of the morning following Phil MIckelson and Keegan Bradley practicing on the back nine.
Favorite moment: Keegan two-putts for birdie on the 14th hole, which is listed at 609 yards. Then he turns to Phil who had come up short on a green-side bunker shot, and rubs his thumb against two fingers in a ``show me the money'' gesture.
Phil was spraying a lot of tee shots; Keegan tended to stripe things down the middle. Both were great with the galleries.
But it'll be a lot different atmosphere come Friday morning, when it's game on. 

THE PING PONG KING:
With media grasping for angles, the Ping-Pong matches of Team USA have been getting a lot of attention. Matt Kuchar has been crowned the king of table tennis.
HIs thoughts on Ping Pong when asked to handicap his game. . . 

 ``Maybe a 1 or a 2 handicap. Certainly can't compete with the top level players, but a good player, and yeah, on our team I'd be the best player.

``But we have some great matches, games to 11, games to 21. There can be some fun runs and guys can get ahead. It's a game that if a guy makes a run, he can start talking smack.

``It's been a fun bonding, because there is that ability to kind of go out and be boys and kind of feel like you're in the locker room while you're competing against each other.

``And then it's also fun; the doubles might be the most fun where you're, again, part of a team, where you're helping out your partner and kind of going at it in a team atmosphere.''
