Here’s the latest from the Shell Houston Open on the PGA tour. The defending champ, Paul Casey (who made some disingenuous remarks about American golfers a few years ago), nursing a bad back, withdrew yesterday, relinquishing his spot to some no-name alternate. Paul did a good thing by withdrawing early and letting someone else have a chance at some big money. Vijay Singh, however, started his round today, knowing his back was a big problem, and withdrew on the front nine…..thereby depriving another no-name from even having a chance to play because he started his round.
Davis Love III (aka DL3…according to the morons at the Golf Channel) posted a clean 80…..a score my friend, Mikey, could have posted with his eyes closed. Ok……it was windy in Houston today! But, come on, Davis!
And the leader is…….Kevin Stadler! Never heard of him? What about his dad, Craig? Never heard of him, either…….then I guess you don’t give a crap about golf (or this post)!
In other news, it is reported that Tiger Woods allegedly paid $10 Million to his long-time squeeze, Rachel Uchitel, as hush money for their tryst! And, some columnist wants to blame Michael Jordan for leading Tiger down the wrong path. It was not MJ that led Tiger down the wrong path… it was “‘Lil Tiger” that caused the problem. Although, one of Tiger’s mistresses’ says that ‘Lil Tiger is really the BIGGEST she has ever seen!
And, finally, the Golf Channel coverage of tournaments still sucks!! And that’s a wrap on golf!!
