Mickelson- I just feel like he's going to come out of his funk this week

Watney- Bad finish but still played very well last week

Tiger- Played pretty well at Doral but who knows where his mind will be this week

I want Tiger to win also. I'm sick of the commentators talking about his sex scandal every time he plays.  Magic Johnson slept with 1000's of woman while he was married. He slept with woman at halftime. I don't get why Tiger gets all this scrutiny. Is it because of the game he plays? I think it's time for Tiger to play the race card to get people off his back. Magic cheats on his wife gets HIV and is on Oprah 10 times a year to be praised for I have no idea what. They were both huge role models. I honestly think it's because of the sport they play. I bet when he does win it will take him a while to get another one and they will continue to say its because of stress from his scandal and the win was just a good week.

My boss called me today and said he might have to tickets for Saturday's round and asked me if I wanted to go. Uuuhhh, hell yea! I've been a couple times before but it was years ago when it was stilled called the Nestle'. I'm really hoping he can get the tickets because seeing just how great these guys play is almost surreal.

They did stop talking about it.  About  a year ago, in fact.  Maybe it's you who needs to move on.

And you suggest that he should play "the race card"? That would be bad enough if he were black, but he isn't. Dear oh dear.....

I haven't heard them mention Tiger's sex scandal in a very long time.

I agree with you...but, when did Tiger stop being black?

OK maybe they don't say sex scandal. They say personal life aka sex scandal. My bigger point was the treatment of two black men who play different sports, golf = rich, basketball = poor. Magic = HIV hero, Tiger = man whore. I guess I can't make that point because you believe he isn't black. Do you believe we just elected our first black president? I guess you would say technically no.

Personal life =/= sex scandal.

My picks last week were way off.  I guess I don't know the courses well enough to predict which player fits the course.  I'll go with Gary Woodland for two in a row.

    • As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve been using the phone app recently. I tried to use it at Mammoth Dunes but it wasn’t mapped, then the next day at Sand Valley and it had issues. I didn’t use it for the rest of the trip and honestly it was so much more enjoyable to play golf without worrying about if my tracking app was working properly. As much as I love to go back and see how far I hit shots and revisit my rounds, I’m probably done with it.
    • Did Cleveland ownership not vet those chunks of concrete?!
    • rotf, here we go again, has we cannot please our over-sensitive society. The racist Cleveland Guardians baseball team must be renamed - The Spectator World Major League Baseball has failed another major test. The new name for the professional...   The new name for the professional baseball franchise in Cleveland — Guardians — must go. As several states work to remove imperialistic statues of cis white men, the city of Cleveland has reached into its racist past to honor them. This is not the progress that Nikole Hannah-Jones has been dreaming of. And while we are at it, the logo for the Minnesota Vikings must go! Here is the definition of a Viking, in which the Scandinavian the people must be fuming about: Who were the Vikings? The Vikings were raiders, pirates, traders, explorers, and colonizers during the 9th to 11th century. They often traveled by sea from Scandinavia and took control of areas of Europe and beyond.
