Tiger isn't a charity case.  He has won more than anyone currently on tour and has won in dramatic fashion while  "players" have had to watch him sink putts in their face and beat them. There i

You haven't made a case! How about eating and drinking? Guess what? When someone's dehydrated, they use an IV. They don't just make them drink water. There are better, faster ways of getting th

The "win" wouldn't count, even though it's a great field.

Wasn't McDowell's win in a playoff? Didn't he make great putts on 18 and then on the first playoff hole, also 18?

Tehnically that is his last two holes, but I wouldn't describe McDowell's win as "making birdies on his last two holes" He made two amazing putts after Tiger hit one stone dead next to the 72nd hole.

That was ice cold! The twisted dagger! They still show that moment of the putt dropping and him fist pumping while shooting Tiger a look on a Golf Channel commercial almost daily.

Just swalllow it whole.

Seriously though, why do they award OWGR points for this event? Seems a bit off to me.

I looked it up there and saw that Gmac got 50 points last year for winning it. A Major gives you 100...half the points of a major for a field of 18 event which is basically a bit of fun?

Haven't been posting much...been a bit busy (will be adding my .02 in some of the instruction areas soon)...but the "fat leprechaun" comment just made me laugh so hard I had to thank colin007!!!

Dana Dahlquist snapped a pic of Tiger's new bag.  He's got a new deal with Fuse Science, a small, Florida-based nutrition company that focuses on energy and body replenishment products in drop form or lotion that can be rubbed into the skin.

Unbelievable. Pseudo science nonsense. But then again, I still see pros wearing those ridiculus Powerband and TrionZ things.

And....people buy bottled water, so I guess separating fools from their money is a pretty easy thing to do. Just a shame that some golf pros take the money. Who can blame them I guess.

So much for their integrity and "due diligence".

I will honestly say if someone wanted to pay me money to put something on my bag or use it, I would probably do it.  I hope Tiger plays like he did on Sunday of the President's Cup.  Should be interesting to see how he fairs with having to the hit the driver a little more.
