Rory Sabbatini shot his mouth off a bit, saying Tiger was as beatable as he’s ever been. Tiger came back with a great comment, saying Sabbatini had won three tournaments in his career while Tiger had won three this season. Touche’.
Sabbatini started out at Firestone Sunday with a two shot lead over Tiger. Tiger proceeded to pound him into submission, shooting a bogeyless 65. Sabbatini could only answer with a gaggalicious 74. Thus, his new name: Rory Gaggatini.
Man did Tiger look good
Tiger looked as good Sunday as he’s looked all season. He was perfectly in balance, perfect timing, calm, in control… He was in the zone. I was wondering about him, but I’m not wondering any more. Even when he hit bad shots they went in, like one of his two chip-ins. I was thinking that Tiger would go for 2007 without a major win and I’m still leaning that way. But, he looked SO good this week it’s hard not to pick him.
Tiger ended up being the only player in the field under par. He lapped the field by 8 shots and outplayed Gaggatini by 9 shots!
Enough about last week. PGA Championship week has begun! Bring it on!
