There are plenty of interesting stories that could be written today at the TPC. Kenny Perry has his 18 year old son caddying for him. Jerry Kelley, Frank Lickliter, or Kevin Sutherland could claim an important “major” like victory, as could Phil Mickelson. Els and Singh, a Ponte Vedra resident, could add to their already impressive career records (3 and 2 majors respectively). And, of course, Tiger could come back from 6 behind to win the tournament, a la Jack Nicklaus at the ’86 Masters.

But perhaps the most intriguing victory of all would be if the 3rd round leader wins: Adam Scott. The 23-year-old, who is coached by Butch Harmon, would lay his claim to be being the best golfer younger than Tiger. Better than Sergio. Better than Charles Howell. Better than Aaron Baddeley. Better than Matt Kuchar, Justin Rose — you name them. What is scary about Scott is how solid his swing looks. Butch Harmon says it’s better than Tiger’s, and so does Johnny Miller. The guy has hit the most greens in regulation this week, and doesn’t seem to hit that errant shot that Tiger seems to hit once or twice a round these days.

So take your pick. There are plenty of good stories to write at the TPC.
