Tiger and JT = Tiger will be 2 over after 18 seeing JT swing that fast and try and keep up. JT will be 1 or 2 under. Leader will be 5 under and Tiger will be struggling all weekend to try and fight back. :)

He very well may have been. But from everything we've seen and heard about Brooks, an event like this probably wouldn't interest him. He's probably in the middle of a 6-8 week break where he's rarely thinking about golf.

No special invite to the 1,199 ranked player this year?

Bill Haas playing in the pro-am but not invited to the event itself?  Seems very odd...is that normal? Why's he even there if he wasn't invited to play?

Apparently it's Welshman James Frazer...
SUPER surprising that Mr. Frazer did not receive the invitation...

I doubt it will happen given his...ahem...less than stellar performance last week but I hope Tiger wins.

At the Tour Champs the "Young Guns" who are supposed to be unbeatable were given a proper whatfor by a 42 year old man a year removed from back fusion. I'm sick of their musical-chair mediocrity. Let 'em see what a real champion is made of.
