Some round! I was scrolling from the bottom up and was worried I didn't see Paddy. Great stuff.

Driving and iron play is top drawer, if he gets shot putter in a week could def win this year again. Honda next week again?

I must say I am very encouraged by Paddy's start to the season. It has been very solid apart from the missed cut after his very good performance at that champions tournament at the start. For me what I find most encouraging is that 2 weeks in a row now he's made the cut but not only that, he's made a move in the 3rd round (moving day). If my overview of his performance last year is anything to go by, apart from the British open, he didn't really do well in any 3rd round when he made the cut. Often he'd lose ground and other times he'd just hold his position, usually after only scraping in anyway. I put that down to his inability to finish strongly more frequently. Reading between the lines of a couple of quotes, he finds it hard to focus if he doesn't have much to play for so when he doesn't progress in the 3rd round, I suspect it makes it harder for him to motivate himself to finish strongly. Just my opinion.

Now in saying that, he was in a good position last week after a good 3rd round and it didn't work out for him. But, again, encouragingly he has bounced back and given himself another shot at a good finishing position. Looking at the leaderboard, he's clearly too far back to be in the mix come the back nine but a top 10 is not beyond him. I think he'll have to play equally well to manager that though. -9 is T10 at the moment so he has a lot of ground to make up unless those ahead struggle. For me, another move up the leaderboard, where ever that leads him will be a big step in the right direction.

On an aside, I'm based 3 hours ahead of GMT so he's playing even later than normal for me. Its ruining my sleep as I keep waking to see how's he's getting on!! arrggg!

What I like most about his recent rounds is that there have been no disasters - no doubles, no spraying of drives all over the place. And his putting is going well too. That was a great round yesterday, and I'll be very happy if he can put in a solid round this evening.

I think he said himself that it is the easiest birdie chance on the course.

He can't afford to do that - everyone seems to be shooting low today.

Ah jaysus,that's all yesterday's good work gone.......I think we were all too quick to proclaim his return....still going in the right direction as far as I'm concerned, progress might be a bit more gradual that yesterday's performance might have suggested though!

Look at shot tracker and see what he done. Paddy's usual Sunday meltdown. A 22 handicapper wouldn't have done what he done on 7 . Seems like when he makes one error In a round he just can't forget the bad shot then loses focus and anything can happen

I should have kept my bloody mouth shut last night instead of extolling the virtues of yesterday's round. All the good work undone. So so disappointing.
