Admit it.

When you heard the roars and saw Tiger's name slowly creeping up the leaderboard Friday you were thinking, 'Well, here we go. It's over.'

Not yet.

And thankfully so.

Still plenty of time:

Maybe it's just a formality that Tiger wins, but until then there are too many great storylines to enjoy.

None better than eighth-grader Tianlang Guan making the cut.

Eighth grade?

When I was his age, I was still trying to figure out how to make toast.

That's not all:

How about 53-year-old Fred Couples heading into the weekend just a shot off the lead?

Or young Jason Day trying to become the first Aussie to win The Masters?

Or the fact that there are 25 players within 5 shots of the lead?

This stuff is gold for CBS.

But will it last?

"The whole world is looking at this, and in a sense they're saying, 'OK, (Day and Couples) are in the final group, but the lead is at 3-under par -- with Tiger Woods."

-- Golf Channel analyst Brandel Chamblee

Rooting interest:

Ever since I met Jason Day years ago when he was in the running at the La Salle Bank Open at the Glen Club I've been a fan.

Simply a quality guy with a more than quality game.

Streelman struggles:

Winfield native Kevin Streelman was right at the cut line through nine holes Friday, but a 40 on the back nine did him in.

But hey, at least D.A. Points (3 over) made the cut and will be playing this weekend.

Saturday may be moving day:

But not for me.

I'm not going anywhere.
