Thank god the weekend is here, the coverage during the week has been awful. At first glance the Comcast TV guide says that the Golf Channel has ‘coverage’ all day, their coverage consists of highlights of the golfers practicing on the range and putting green, and Notah Begay blowing his boy Tiger for 8 hours. Then it switches over to ESPN at 4pm so you can catch the last 4 groups play 16, 17 and 18. Bottom line it’s terrible. “But Seth you can watch it on your computer” No thanks. The only things I watch on my computer is Porn and movie trailers. Would you watch the Superbowl or the World Series on your laptop?
The Leader(s): The British are coming, the British are coming. Two Red coats Ian Poulter -8 and Lee Westwood -8 will be paired up on Saturday. I like Poulter, he’s a character, a bit of an asshole, he loves working the crowd and media (and he can win me a ton of money) he was bombing putts the last two days, and did I mention that he played 21 practice rounds. I hate Lee Westwood, he brings nothing to the table. He use to be really fat now he is just kind of fat, I hope Paul Revere and the militia shoot him with a musket.
어디서 오셨어요?: 영어/한국, Korea 어 할 줄 아세요? 너무 친절하시네요!저는 미국/한국에서 살아요, Y.E Yang -5 K.J. Choi -6, 아파요. 일곱, 여덜, 아홉, 열…의사가 필요해요 Tiger Woods. 행운을 빕니다!
Good vs Evil: Tiger vs Phil, would be legendary. The world wants this match up on Sunday and I’d be willing to take the over of 600 million viewers if they are leading and paired on the final day. I think by rule CBS should install a camera on Elin Woods and Amy Mickelson. I bet Elin would wear a KPMG visor and Amy would have her Tiger voodoo doll.
The Golfer who has us all fooled: Wear does the nickname “Boom Boom” come from, well when you were the king shit golfer in the late 80s and early 90s you messed around. Fred Couples was a big time shit bag, just like Tiger. The only difference between now and then is that the interweb and smart phones didn’t exist. Check out this article http://tiny.cc/e04fh. Freddy never got hung like Tiger, because he was able to hide his infidelities. No one thought it was a coincidence that Freddy and Tiger played a practice round together? They were probably trading war stories for 18 holes.
The Golfer on the Leaderboard who won’t win: Ricky Barnes. Sorry Ricky go back to banging your hot girlfriend Suzanne Stonebarger (pictured above). If you don’t recall Ricky blew the US Open last year, shooting a 76 (+6) on Sunday, he doesn’t have the make up for the Masters, but in a few years he could win a Major or two. I’d still live to be only 33 if I could be him for a month.
The Golfer not on the Leaderboard who can win: The pins placements will be tougher, the greens will quicker and the tee boxes will move way back. The landscape of the course will change and all of the golfers know this. Analysts and the players are already saying there might not be a guy who reaches -10. Which is a shock after all of the rounds in the 60s this week. My guy Hunter Mahan -2, still has an outside shot of winning a Green Jacket. He is a tad off the leaderboard but has shot two consistent rounds 71-71, and if he can reach the 60s each day it might (a big might) be enough. Obviously I am tying to convince myself he can still win, because I have money on Hunter.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend, I plan on watching every shot and will wear pink knickers and spike my hair in a faux hawk if Poulter pulls this off.
