The most exciting golf on TV this week isn’t the FedEx Cup

FedEx Cup wild card round

Tiger Woods is sitting out for this week’s first round of the FedEx Cup playoffs. We can just say he’s secured a first round bye. Vijay Singh missed the cut. Phil Mickelson is probably too far back to win.

I guess this first round we can look at like the wild card rounds in the NFL. With players like K.J. Choi, Hunter Mahan, Rich Beem (134th in FC points) and Woody Austin all in contention, that seems reasonable.

U.S. Amateur

THE most exciting golf on TV this week is the U.S. Amateur at the Olympic Club. It’s down to two players, Colt Knost and Michael Thompson. 36 holes of pure, intense match play–my favorite kind of golf. Both players are already in The Masters and the U.S. Open.

Two measly hours of coverage?

So today’s TV coverage of the U.S. Amateur is from 4-6pm ET. Um, I think it takes longer than two measly hours to play 36 holes of match play.
