I was thinking about Anthony Kim's disappearance a few days ago.  As an Oklahoma State fan, I never really cheered for him much.  But he was great for golf when he was on his game, and he was a big help the last time the U.S. won the Ryder Cup.    And who can forget his 11 birdies in the second round of the 2009 Masters?  Crazy stuff!
The last I read is that he's pretty much doing short-game stuff only. That was a few days ago, so who knows if he's slowly working his way into doing more. Hopefully, he's ready to go because he's a legit contender to win at Augusta.
Which Europeans are getting picked over Rory?  I'm not saying he will win The Masters by any means, but if I get two Europeans, he's going to be one of them almost every time.  I definitely wouldn't pick Phil because of the injury concerns, but if he tees it up next week, he will be a factor.
I'm not sure I agree with that anymore.  He hasn't won a major since 2008, so he isn't exactly setting the world on fire when it comes to majors.  The media will probably focus on his absence quite a bit, I agree with that part.  But any mention of an asterisk is just silly talk when it comes to Tiger now and moving forward.  The ratings probably won't be as high, but the field is still incredible.  There is a chance he may not even be number one after The Masters.
I was reading the latest "Hawk's Nest" yesterday, and John Hawkins was writing about a text conversation he was having with Pat Perez.  Perez plays pretty fast compared to most PGA Tour players, and he said Kevin Na has gotten a little better.  He said Na is at least working on it.  Perez went on to say Loupe is the worst he's seen.  I'm not sure if that's what the topic is about, but that's definitely calling out a fellow PGA Tour player in some form or fashion.   The...
I'm pretty excited about this year's Shell Houston Open.  The field is probably the strongest since Doral, and The Masters aura is in the air.  This is the last chance for some of the players to earn their way to Augusta, and it's a chance for some of the top-ranked golfers to put an end to the "slightly mediocre" run on the PGA Tour of late.  Bring on a great leaderboard and Sunday finish!
It's Augusta National, and it's The Masters.  The cream will rise to the top as it usually does, and we'll have an exciting Sunday finish as always.  The fact Tiger will miss The Masters and others are fighting the injury bug stinks, but there are still A LOT of really good golfers teeing it up next week!  I'm picking Matt Kuchar to break through and win his first major.  He played pretty well this past weekend, and he has won some big events in recent years.  I think it's...
Matt Kuchar -9   That's all I have.  On a side note, it's amazing how many people have Charles Howell III listed when he's not going to be at Augusta unless he wins this weekend in Houston.  Don't get me wrong, I'd love to see it happen more than anyone.  Probably not going to though, lol.
The Masters- Tiger Woods   U.S. Open- Zach Johnson   British Open- Sergio Garcia   PGA Championship- Adam Scott
I watch The Golf Channel quite a bit because of the PGA Tour coverage on a weekly basis, but I don't watch as much other stuff as I used to.  I'll still catch Golf Central, Top 10, and Big Break some, but they really disappointed me with the direction they went with 19th Hole.  It was my favorite show on TV until they took out John Hawkins and Jeff Rude on a weekly basis.  They also moved it to Thursday which was dumb.  I'm not sure if it's back for 2014 or not, but I...
