Despite all the FedEx Cup hoopla, Tiger has not committed to playing in the PGA Tour’s season opener, The Mercedes. When asked at the Target World Challenge last week Tiger jokingly said he’d play in every tournament in 2007. That would be OK with me.
I think the real reason he’s probably going to bail on the Mercedes is he knows he has NO chance of winning. In fact nobody other than Stuart Appleby has a chance. They should just give Appleby the check and the trophy right now and forget playing the tournament.
