A Big Break At Torrey Pines?

Tiger Woods has been taken off his pedestal as golf’s #1. He is still a respected golfer but to his peers he is now seen as beatable. After a tumultuous year in 2010 during not only the Tour but also the public eye, Tiger Woods is hoping that a place where he has found luck in past years will help him out again. The Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines will be Tigers first official game of 2011. He has won this tournament 6 times in the past and many are predicting he could again (I however am not that optimistic). The question is will it be a new Tiger? From a realist perspective Tiger will probably do just fine. Nothing shocking or inspiring but he most likely will not go down in flames like many of his tournaments last season.

Hopefully this week we won’t have too many call in’s from the oh so popular armchair referee’s. PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem yesterday asked the USGA to review the Rules of Golf to find a better solution to this obvious problem. There has been a lot of talk and suggestions to how they should change the ruling. The most fair solution would be that if a player, caddie or on site official doesn’t see any foul play before signing the score card there shouldn’t be any reason for disqualifications. They could even wait an hour or so to see if anyone really calls in for a major rule violation and then adjust the scorecard accordingly.

    Great post man, really enjoyed the read. It’s great that Tiger is back for another season and you can just see how much hype it has caused for this PGA event already. Tiger is such a phenomenon in golf that we have pretty much forgotten that it used to be fun to watch golf even when Tiger wasn’t around. We’ll see how he does this year because we have no idea if he can come back to form. But it’s going to be really bad for golf if he can’t come back strong for this season. Also, you think you could take a look at my blog cuz I really wanna hear what you have to say. http://chrisross91.wordpress.com/2011/01/27/pga-needs-more-than-tiger/
