Size Matters


Just a thought, but on two Sundays in August Tiger Woods, the game’s preeminent giant, was taken down by a diminutive duo – 5-foot-7 Heath Slocum and 5-foot-9 Y.E. Yang – with their backs against the wall.

Looking for a darkhorse this week? Stay with the tiny and time-challenged. We like Kevin Streelman, at 5-foot-8 and 92nd on the FedEx Cup points list he’s a keeper. The Chicago lad is also a streaky putter who has had some on-the-job experience between the ropes with the world No. 1 (2008 U.S. Open and Buick Invitational).
