Some Observations from the PGA Championship: Tiger Woods has been very good in
the opening two rounds of the majors this year. Brandon Weeden Jersey . Of course he held the
lead at the halfway point of the U.S. Open and was in the fray at the British
Open a month later. But the weekends havent been so hot. In fact, Woods has yet
to break par in a Saturday or Sunday round at a major. Will that change at
Kiawah? Woods is putting remarkably well. He has a stunning 23 one-putts in two
days, at least statistically speaking. He took just 22 putts on Thursday and 26
on Friday.  There are lots of folks discounting Carl Petterssons chances of
winning his first major, but I think hell be around come the weekend. In April,
he won the RBC Heritage at Hilton Head on a course designed by Pete Dye, the
same architect as the Ocean Course. More important is that Pettersson is a guy
who can work the ball both ways with ease, something thats needed to battle the
cross winds that are rolling over Kiawah Island.  Pettersson made an interesting
point about those looking to ban long putters. He said in the wind they could be
more difficult to use as the breezes buffet them even more. “I know the short
putter blows around,” said King Carl, “but its almost double, the wind hits it
twice as much I think.” By the way, theres no way that Pettersson can make the
European Ryder Cup team. Hes not a member of the European Tour.  How good was
Vijay Singhs round on Friday? He was the only guy in the field to break 70. By
the way, thats something he did for all four rounds of the RBC Canadian Open
where he posted a top-10 finish. The guy is 49 and would be the oldest major
champion in history, but probably also one of the fittest. Singh was the only
guy hitting balls on the range on Thursday evening when the winds were blowing
and he was on the range and the putting green for a long time after his Friday
round. No surprise there.  Poor Michael Hoey. He posted one of just five
under-par rounds on Friday but was later disqualified. During his round, Hoey
lifted his ball to identify it but when he replaced it, he failed to recreate
the lie. The result was a two-shot penalty and he was punted for signing an
incorrect scorecard.  Phil Mickelson was another guy under par on Friday. Howd
he manage that? With his putter. Lefty has taken just 25 putts in each of the
first two rounds. If he can shore up the rest of his game (hes hit 13 fairways
and 15 greens), he could be a threat.  The scoring average for Fridays round was
78.11, which was a record high, not surprisingly. The previous record was 76.8.
The fact that there were two rounds in the 90s by a couple of club professionals
boosted that mark.  Say what you want about Doug Wade, the club professional who
shot 93 yesterday, but Im betting that most 5-handicappers wouldnt have broken
105 at the Ocean Course Friday.  Seen on the chipping green late last night:
Ernie Els testing out a gaggle of new wedges. Apparently the British Open
champion wasnt happy with how he was chipping. Well see how his short game works
Saturday.  Interesting note: there are only two Americans in the top 10 after 36
holes: Woods and Blake Adams.  I wouldnt be surprised to see Rory McIlroy make a
move on Saturday. He looks very confident with his game and seems to be hitting
it as he did earlier in the year when he won at Honda. Another guy I like under
these conditions is Graeme McDowell, who loves tough courses. Trent Richardson Jersey . When asked
Wednesday if it was money well spent, Smith said it was, because the play helped
his team. He said he wasnt asking for any help from his teammates to pay the
fine. Early in the second quarter of the Sept. Jim Brown Youth Jersey . The 25-year-old
Surman joined Norwich from Wolverhampton in 2010, and had four goals last season
as the Canaries finished 12th in the English Premier League. http://www.nikeclevelandbrownsjerseyshop.com/jim-brown-jerseys
. —Jack McInerney scored twice and the Philadelphia Union beat Sporting Kansas
City 4-0 Saturday night to snap a six-game winless skid. Jim Brown Womens Jersey . —Royals manager
Ned Yost and outfielder Jeff Francoeur both had been ejected long before the
ninth inning of Thursday nights game against Milwaukee, so they had to settle
for watching its dramatic conclusion on television. Trent Richardson Youth Jersey . Magloire, 34,
appeared in 34 games for the Raptors last season. He averaged 1.2 points, 3.3
rebounds and 11 minutes a game.NEW YORK —The Los Angeles Angels have purchased
the contract of right-hander David Carpenter from Triple-A Salt Lake and
optioned utilityman Alexi Amarista to the minors to help their beleaguered
bullpen. The 24-year-old Carpenter joined the Angels for the start of their
three-game series Friday against the New York Yankees. His first appearance will
mark his major league debut. The Angels moved outfielder Jeremy&nbssp;Moore
from the 15- to the 60-day disabled list. Trent Richardson Womens Jersey. Carpenter was
promoted to help a bullpen that couldnt hold leads against Minnesota on
Wednesday and Thursday, sending the Angels to a 2-4 start. Top reliever
Scott Downs bruised his right ankle Thursday when he was stepped on while
covering first base. General manager Jerry Dipoto said Friday that Downs will
not have to go on the disabled list. ’ ’ ’
