If Garcia wins the Masters I’ll play golf naked, and Golfsmith will give you a TaylorMade driver

Wow the folks at Golfsmith are big risk takers. Read a portion of their press release below, but it basically says that that if you buy one of three TaylorMade drivers from Golfsmith between now and April 11th, you’ll be refunded your money if Sergio Garcia wins the Masters.

It is no secret that I’m critical of Sergio. I lost respect for the guy when he spit in the hole on national TV and then denied it in a post round interview.

I’m also quite confident that Sergio will NOT win the Masters as his putting on the slick Augusta greens will be his downfall.  In fact, I’m so confident that Sergio will not win the Masters that I’ll make the following statement.

IF SERGIO GARCIA WINS THE MASTERS, I’LL PLAY THE PAR-5 1ST HOLE OF MY HOME COURSE NAKED.

I have lost a few pounds recently.  In fact, I weigh 10 pounds less than I did in high school.  So there won’t be any beached whale sightings on the course should Sergio win.   That being said, I’m no spring chicken and I don’t exactly have a six pack or abs of steel.   🙂

I’m not alone in my skepticism:

Deadspin piece (read the great comments, except for the Payne Stewart one)

Annika Sorenstam announced on her (not so easy to navigate to) blog that she is pregnant!

Mike and I are very pleased to announce that we expecting our first child. We have had a lot of exciting changes in the past few months, and adding a new addition to our family later this fall will certainly be at the top of that list.  We are absolutely thrilled and look forward to this new chapter of our lives!  We appreciate the love and support that we have received from our family, friends, and of course my fans.


Next Tiger Woods appearance at Bay Hill next week

Let me take you back to February 15, 2009. Tiger hadn’t played on tour in roughly eight months. I predicted his upcoming schedule exactly:

Accenture Match Play is a good candidate for Tiger’s return…

Doral on March 12 is a strong candidate for Tiger to play, and the Arnold Palmer Inivitational March 26th is a very high probability in my estimation.  Then Tiger would rest before the Masters Tournament on April 9th.

Tiger has now been confirmed for the Arnold Palmer Championship at Bay Hill next week.  And I’d bet the farm and billions of dollars in bailout money he’ll skip the Houston Open, returning for The Masters…


Tiger to play in Australian Masters, for a $3M appearance fee

Tiger Woods is playing in the Australian Masters this November. Unlike the PGA Tour, other tours can pay appearance fees so Tiger is getting his, a paltry $3,000,000. Tiger’s appearance fee for one non PGA Tour event is more than many PGA Tour players make in a year.

I get an appearance fee too

I’m playing today with my Thursday group. Last week I had to pay all three pals their appearance fees of about $16.00. I hope to receive an appearance fee, rather than pay to play today.
