Which of those players will the golf media obsess over this next week?
Golf is a Funny Game: The “casual golf fans” with their “willed it into the hole” and “no one else could hit that shot” don’t understand this, but there is a big luck factor in golf. Think back to Friday. Rory on No. 17. If he misses that long putt, none of this happens.
Hicks Propaganda: Anyone else hear Hicks say today that the Players had the “deepest, best” field of the year? Does he not know how easy it is for us to sort by field strength at the OWGR website and prove him wrong? I suppose he could have meant “year to date.” Sure, sure, it was just a slip of the tongue.
Smells Like Teen Desperation: Tiger Woods sure is making a lot of “announcements” lately. Is there some reason these announcements could not wait until his press conference at the Players this week?
He did it! — just like Tiger, ho hum: It could not be more obvious that the golf media uses every great outing by Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy to dig up some nugget where they are merely the “first since Tiger Woods.” You’re not going to hear much about how both Jordan and Rory won pro events as teenagers. You’ll never hear combos of “first to win as a teenager, then go on to…”
Also, we don’t hear much about “chasing Jack” any more, do we?
