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.

I’ve met Fuzzy Zoeller a few times and he was always nice.

This year marks the 30th anniversary of Fuzzy’s Masters victory.  And, this year will be Fuzzy’s last Masters.

Phil silences the Sergio #1 talk, and plays right handed

Lefties hitting right-handed, righties hitting left-handed…

Did anyone see Phil Mickelson’s right-handed shot out of the bushes with his club turned upside down? I rolled that back a few times on my DVR. While I don’t agree that the shot choice he made was a wise decision, it was impressive. The result wasn’t great and could have been a catastrophe if his shot kicked right instead of down. All that said, Phil’s right-handed technique looked picture perfect. It looked better than mine. Of course, all he’d have to do is look better than an 84 year old lady golfing to look better than my swing, but I digress.

That Phil shot reminded me of a similar shot Tiger Woods hit back in the 2004 Masters when he did the same thing from the trees. I’m thinking it was the trees right of #13 but it was a while ago so I may have the hole wrong. As I recall I also rolled that one back a few times on the DVR and marveled at how perfect Tiger’s left-handed technique was.

Do these guys practice hitting these shots or are they just that damn good?

Can we put the Sergio #1 talk to bed now?

So now that Phil won at Doral, he overtook Sergio Garcia for the world’s #2 ranking, and silenced the ridiculous “Sergio #1 in the world” discussion for now.

Phil becomes #1 and Tiger’s caddy Steve Williams makes the switch to Phil…

I’d like to see Phil overtake Tiger, if not for just a few weeks. Then perhaps Steve Williams (Tiger’s caddy), would want to switch over to working for Phil. And maybe hell would freeze over too.
