A Shootout surprise


“Shag Bag” normally isn’t much interested in Silly Season pairings, but this one was interesting. Ian Poulter and Dustin Johnson will team up at the Shark Shootout Dec. 8-12. Wonder if Poulter will bring the Ryder Cup to show his partner?

Others include Matt Kuchar and Greg Norman, defending champions Jerry Kelly and Steve Stricker, Justin Leonard and Scott Verplank, Mark Calcavecchia and Jeff Overton, Chris DiMarco and Anthony Kim, Darren Clarke and Graeme McDowell, David Duval and Davis Love III, Jason Day and Rory Sabbatini, K.J. Choi and Mike Weir, seniors Fred Funk and Kenny Perry, and Rickie Fowler and Bubba Watson.
