On Tiger Woods Second Round 70, tied for the lead after two rounds at -1
“He has gone from automatic, to enigmatic. But, like 2000, like 2002, when Tiger Woods had a share of the lead, people are looking at him as the defacto leader…He is the only guy in the field with 14 major championships to his credit and you have got to think, coming down the stretch on Sunday that matters more than anything else.” – Golf Channel analyst Brandel Chamblee
“He is in a situation now that he is more familiar with. For him, his whole career has been about being in contention. He got himself into contention. And the adrenaline can start to take over. The event is far from over, believe me, but the thing is we are seeing a Tiger Woods that is fully competitive.” – Golf Channel analyst Frank Nobilo
“If Tiger Woods plays well, forget it, its over.” – Golf Channel analyst David Feherty
On Jim Furyk and David Toms tied for the lead at -1
“The U.S. Open is all about eliminating mistakes. Jim Furyk has done that and so has David Toms.” – Brandel Chamblee
“If you look at both of these players, Jim Furyk and David Toms, what they have in common is tremendous intellect.” – David Feherty
