This is the most anticlimactic tournament in the history of golf. Horrible timing following the dramatics of last week's Ryder Cup.

You're right, gentlemen, but still I wanna know if GarcĂ­a is gonna have a little revenge...

It's looking a little more dramatic midway through the final round. Kim, Garcia, Mickelson and Villegas all have a chance.
