Well this week in all golf is centered around the old feeling young and the young using old excuses, "its the caddies fault". Maybe we shouldn't be so hard on Bubba cause all the crying and pink clubs, you've had to know he was as emotional as the future babe down the street. As for the old goat Ken Duke finally at the age of forty-four has his maiden tour victory. While that's nice we can't forget Colin Montgomery will be making his Champions tour debut at? So as we continue to debate if he earned his place in the HOF, if he can finally win a major he could do a lot for his image on this side of the Atlantic.
Since were talking about images lets talk about everyone's favourite soap opera Mr. Eldrick 'Tiger' Woods, he's playing host and not competing this week. I'm too young to know, (and for the sake of the argument I won't do the research) but Arnold, Jack, Ben, and Bryon have all hosted and held events in their honor. But how many times in their respective primes did they watch those events from the side lines. With the world back to questioning Tiger's chances at passing Jack Nicklaus' record of eighteen, I've got the over/under on one word answers and death stares at two million for the week.
