Bubba to Tiger: See you in Augusta

The two highlights of today’s action at the Phoenix Open:

  • Tiger Woods hits his best shot of the day on the drivable par-4 No. 17, leaving only ten feet for eagle.  He walks to the back of the green to allow the trailing group to hit.  Bubba Watson puts his tee shot well inside of Woods, leaving only a couple of feet for eagle.  That shot said these things:  (a) I’m inside your best shot of the day; (b) I’m eight shots ahead of you; (c) I’ve won two of the last three Masters; (d) you got one hundred times the pre-tournament media coverage even though I’m the highest-ranked player in this field; (e) see ya in Augusta.
  • Reed and Spieth and Woods are playing the loud stadium par-3.  Woods misses a long birdie putt.  Spieth hits a shortish birdie putt.  Reed puts his even shorter birdie putt on top of Spieth’s.  Walking toward Spieth, Reed puts his finger to his mouth as in “Shhhhhhh,” a nod to when the two were teammates in the Ryder Cup in enemy territory.  So…  was Reed’s gesture perhaps a comment, be it conscious or subconscious, on the drunken, uneducated gallery pulling for Woods throughout the day?

    Side Bar…..

    I’m watching Feherty Live and something came up that, quite frankly, ticked me off.

    Greg Kinnear was the guest at the time and he brought up the topic of the Euro’s essentially having a say as to who the captain is going to be where as the US, not so much.

    Feherty’s response was essentially, the PGA of American runs the Ryder Cup (for the US) and the PGA Tour is a separate entity. While that is sort of true, I call bullshit.

    I’m a Class A Member of the PGA of America and there are 24 classifications of Class A professionals. I, for example, am a Head Professional and my classification is A-1. Class A members who are Assistant Golf Professionals, are A-8. There is a classification which is designated as A-3. Guess what this classification is…yep, Tour player. So the idea that the Tour Players can’t have a voice in who the captain is, is a complete joke.

      That’s the kind of thing that drives me nuts: When the golf media (or any segment of the media) allows inaccurate information to get into the mind of the public, often intentionally. You can be sure that today a lot of Americans will be echoing the meme that American tour pros “need to have a say just like the Europeans.”
