This just in:
Chris Kirk is now ranked No. 17 in the world; Woods is No. 156.
Chris Kirk regularly contends, regularly wins. He is in his prime. He’s ten years younger than Tiger Woods.
Feinstein and Finchem and Chamblee and Rymer can can say what they want, but they are just whistling past the graveyard.
We’re having astonishing tournaments, and let’s face it, they are better without the Woods distraction. Valspar, The Players, Jordan at Augusta, Rory at Hyde Park and Quail Hollow. An at Wentworth, for crying out loud.
However, we all know that by tomorrow morning Golf Channel will be running promos about Tiger Woods playing Memorial. I can already hear the voice-over (in a Darth Vader tone): “Watch Tiger play Jack’s tournament and try to make history.”
But Chris Kirk is a far better player than Woods. Search your feelings, you know it to be true.
