It's amazing how well some guys perform when there's absolutely no pressure. Look at some of the good scores being produced on Sunday by the non-contenders. Heath Slocum is four under par through 14 holes. Carl Pettersson has moved into a tie for 11th after playing 3-under-par golf through five holes. Stewart Cink and Retief Goosen are each three under for the day.
You would like to see some of the guys just behind 54-hole leader Tiger Woods shoot some low numbers today. That would make for some compelling golf. I'm not saying they need a Johnny Miller-like 63 (Oakmont in 1973), but perhaps a 67 or 68 is in the offing. That would make for some compelling prime-time television.
