That tells you how much his game has improved since Thursday, never
mind the size of the canyon crossed since last week. On a day when the
wind made scoring notionally harder, McIlroy peppered the pins
throughout the front nine, starting with an eagle courtesy of a 7-iron
approach described as one of his best, and claiming a birdie at the
McIlroy climbed from a tie for 50th at the end of the
first day to the top 10 when he signed for his card and a 10-under-par
total. Two birdies in the closing three holes and a 12-foot par putt at
the last embellished a round that he said he never saw coming when he
pitched up at Doral in crisis.
"I was pretty down about my game
coming into the week but a few days like this does my confidence the
world of good," McIlroy said. "I thought a day like today was a long way
away. That's one of my problems. When things are bad I always think
things are further away than they are. I just have to let things happen
and know that if I put in the hard work the results will come."
strikes against par were balanced by persistent bogeys on the opening
three days, but there was none of that vulnerability yesterday. This was
McIlroy as you could not have imagined during the Honda nadir when he
walked off the course mid-round, an episode he described as the lowest
point in his career. With his confidence returning rapidly, McIlroy was
swinging with authority and clearly enjoying the feeling of stress free
The contrast with his playing partner George Coetzee, a
young South African who also hits it a mile and goes for everything,
demonstrated how fickle a game this can be. Coetzee teed it up a shot

was five down, having three-putted twice and sent a wedge into the
water at the third from the middle of the fairway. An inveterate smoker,

This tournament could hardly have fallen better for

two biggest names, one recovering from crisis, the other, Tiger Woods,
re-establishing his credentials as the greatest force in the game. After
three rounds featuring a record 24 birdies, Woods reported that he had
never hit the ball as far and that the aim was to be better than he has
ever been. His performance this week has reinforced the feeling that
Woods is ready to embellish his CV with more majors, five years after
claiming his 14th.
South Florida lost the sunshine yesterday and
the wind picked up. Woods was through the first in two, leaving himself
a difficult downhill chip out of clawing Bermuda grass. It cost him his
birdie chance. At least as impressive as his ball-striking has been the
return of the superior attitude that does not permit negativity. He did
not rue the missed opportunity, he looked forward to the next.
manipulation of a 3-wood is smoothing to behold, sending his ball past
the drives of most. Woods arrowed his ball to the left of the second
fairway, fired his approach to 15 feet on a green quicker than a
porcelain tile and drained the putt. Take that. The greater the demand,
the higher Woods' playing partner, Graeme McDowell, climbs to meet it.
The plan was to focus on his own ball and hang on if Woods hit the
turbo. Like the great counter- puncher he is,Basics, technical terms and

on the back nine, McIlroy began the run for home with two more birdies.
The cameras had lost interest by then, but they will not be gone long.

Core i5 is a dual-core chip that runs at 1.7 GHz with a turbo boost
speed of 2.6 GHz and an integrated Intel HD Graphics 4000 solution. The
processor - which is based on Ivy Bridge - also has HyperThreading and
3MB of cache.
The HP Envy TouchSmart 4 we tested has a 500GB
hard disk and a 32GB startup SSD. The 5400 rpm hard disk comes from
Hitachi and the SSD is a Samsung PM830. The notebook has 4 GB DIMM RAM,
and it's possible to instead put two 8 GB modules in there for a total
of 16 GB. Like many other Ultrabooks, it doesn't have a DVD burner.
HP Envy TouchSmart 4 has one USB 2.0 port on the right, and two USB 3.0
ports on the left. The other connectors consist of a gigabit Ethernet
port, HDMI and a memory card reader. It has a single-band wireless card,
the Intel Centrino 2230 which has two antennas for 300Mbit/s. That's
better than most laptops in this segment. The wireless modules also
provides Intel Wireless Display and Bluetooth 4.0.

than the ideal 2.2. That makes the screen lighter than it should be in
relation to completely black and completely white. The color range is
narrower than the sRGB spectrum. The individual brightness isn't great,
with major peaks for blue and magenta. Only red was below 10 DeltaE94

the upper acceptable limit, and three is good.Wear a whimsical Disney luggagetag straight from the Disney Theme Parks!
