Tiger Woods is building an ocean-front track in Mexico. Its all about the land in that business ' get yourself a nice piece of property ' and Tiger will not come up short in that department. I expect a classic from Tiger within his first few projects.
Phil Mickelson makes a cameo this month on HBOs Entourage. I checked and he wasnt in the recent episode where the guys ate mushrooms and hallucinated in the desert while deciding whether Vince should revive his career with a part in Benji.
Davis Love will win again. His swing is lively; his heads right and hes focused on making good buddy Fred Couples Presidents Cup team next fall.
Dustin Johnson slaughters the golf ball. And as a flat-out, legit dunker hed start on the PGA Tours all-hoop squad. Woody Austin and Lee Janzen apparently own skills as well.
Nice to see another young player birdie the last two to win a tournament as Johnson did at Turning Stone. Outside of his late thrust, though, youd be hard-pressed to recall many great shots in the final round. One Sunday in the fall tells you why so many guys are in the predicament theyre in.
Just so were clear, to be truly Tiger-like, Anthony Kim will need to win five or six tournaments every single year. To be truly Tiger-like, hell need to contend at just about every major and win one or more every year. To be truly Tiger-like, hell have make every cut and contend just about every week. To be truly Tiger-like, hell have to draw an extra 10,000 fans, at a minimum, every week. That said, I absolutely love Anthony Kim.
Freddie, the Shark, Tiger, Camilo, A.K. and Boo by the Bay next October for the laid back Presidents Cup should be very pleasant.
Thanks to the Ryder Cup, the PGA Tour can now put Boo on a billboard, or J.B. Holmes or A.K., and sell tickets to a non-Tiger event.
Paula Creamer demonstrated fire and ice in winning last week in California. It got very chilly when she glared, I mean really glared, at her caddie Colin Cann after an early-round misfire. It warmed considerably by the time she reached the winners circle Sunday ' all smiles. Now shes talking about knocking Lorena Ochoa out of the No. 1 spot. After a tough second half of the season, with Lorena and Annika Sorenstam struggling, plus the language controversy, Paulas passionate run is a welcome development for the LPGA.
People ask me if the season will ever end. I always tell them that as long as theres daylight somewhere on the planet someone will try to shoot 65 and get paid for it.
Congress approved the $700 billion bailout plan, but is still deadlocked on a new proposal to fix the FedEx Cup.
