Rory responds to Sharks snub


Rory Sabbatini unloaded on Cog Hill on Thursday, posting an eventful 5-under 66 for a share of the first-round lead, but avoided a similar venting toward International Presidents Cup captain Greg Norman, who bypassed the South African to pick Adam Scott and Ryo Ishikawa on Tuesday.

Sabbatini took the high road when asked about being skipped: “I have no problems with any decisions made. But the situation is I hope they go out there and play well,” he said.

But Sabbatini did sound a bit put out that Norman didn’t call to tell him he was being skipped.

“You could say I was a little disappointed,” he said.
