Considering Phil is a gazillionaire, have to question him skipping Scottsdale last week and jeopardising his prep for this week - got to be two of his best chances to add to the win column at this stage of his career. Can't be on him this week in spite of finding form last week, it's a massive flight from Saudi Arabia to Monterey. Same for DJ, will be his third attempt at following up on the west coast the week after appearing in the middle east - 45th last year in this event and an MC at Torrey Pines in 2017. The two middle east ventures resulted in a runner up and a win, so the travel has to be a concern.

As Cantlay is a bit short and Day out of form, Casey and Sneds stand out of the market leaders for me.

Seen some ropey final group performances of late but going to be very hard to see beyond the final three-ball tomorrow.

Incredible display from Philip.
Incredible.
Take in to account age and travel and it's almost unbelievable.
Love to see him finish it off.

Taylor bit short imo. 2 top top players in rear view mirror.

finding it difficult to call this one,was phils play yesterday and in particular the two bunker shots and the pitch in pure class from a man on top of his game on a course he loves or was it very lucky and unsustainable?

will taylor be affected by playing in the final pairing on a sunday at pebble or has he the mentality to deal with it just fine?and even if he does handle the pressure has he the game to put in another good round?

should day be thinking he is in the perfect position to pounce as he loves pebble,game is in great shape,will relish the sunday battle,his back seems fine.

is there someone from the pack capable of getting into contention?

If Phil makes the switch to the Champions Tour the rest may as well go home. 50 in a few months, amazing he's still out on the big boy tour playing at this level. Hope he closes the deal tomorrow.
Report dazmacccccc February 9, 2020 2:45 PM GMT
will the mixture of 2 and 3 ball groupings(really 3 and 4 ball because of pro-am) have any bearing on the play?the more i think about this final round the more i feel day will be level with phil and taylor by the turn and then go on to win on the back 9.
Report Total Bosman February 9, 2020 5:11 PM GMT
I'd forgotten they mix up the groups because of the ams, I thought it'd be between a final 3-ball but Day being a group in front is probably a slight advantage especially as all the hullabaloo will be around Phil.  But the bigger advantage is probably Phil having played Pebble yesterday in fairly windy conditions, should be more prepared. Don't especially fancy Taylor having less experience and having played SH yesterday, but then there are plenty of examples (other Taylor, Potter, Points) holding off bigger names to win so who knows.
Report Total Bosman February 9, 2020 5:15 PM GMT
Phil has said be has no interest in the Champions Tour at the moment, and he's still probably got a few years still able to contend on the main tour yet, especially as he seems to be in incredibly good shape.  He seems to love mixing it up with the younger players and I suspect his rather healthy ego might not allow him to hit the retirement tour any time soon even if it's essentially free money.
