Cross-Marketed Grip: With the Tour heading to Florida comes a switch from CBS to NBC. David Feherty, who left CBS for Golf Channel/NBC Sports appeared Monday on NBC’s Today Show. All in the Incestuous Family.
Do That To Me One More Time: On the Today Show, Ferherty, who neglected to mention Rory McIlroy along with the “young stars,” trotted out his old chestnut about the one thing he’s learned about Woods is not to underestimate him. Well, when exactly has Feherty ever underestimated him? Every year for the past ten, Feherty has been predicting Woods to win five of the four majors. Feherty needs to learn to stop overestimating him.
Bubba by Karen: If you have not read this New York Times article on Bubba Watson by Karen Crouse, you are really missing out. Best thing I’ve read in a long time. I read the first sentence and was lost to the world until the final period. Clear, entertaining, interesting subject matter. That’s how to write!
Could it be…? A new Woods book is in the works. It is written by the guys who wrote The System: The glory and scandal of big-time college football, so there is definite potential for some inconvenient truths. Coming from outside the insular golf world, they won’t be running interference for Finchem and Steinberg. I might have to read their college football book now.
