Wolf Creek

Wolf Creek

I'm standing at the tee of a par 3 on Wolf Creek golf course in Mesquite, Nevada.

"The Big 4" Head To Head Stats

There were 8 events in 2004 in which Tiger Woods, Ernie Els, Vijay Singh and Phil Mickelson all played. Here is how they all fared head to head in those 8 events:

So what conclusions can be drawn here? Tiger's average finish was the best, but Phil's earnings were by far the best. Vijay is at the bottom of the list in both categories.

Tiger can regain #1 this week

If Tiger places 4th or better at the Nissan Open he will overtake Vijay as #1. It is OBVIOUS right now that he is NOT the #1 player as of this moment to me. The ranking system MUST be changed.

Annika files for divorce

Annika Sorenstam has filed for divorce. Maybe she'll go out with me. I think she's kind of cute....and she's one hell of a golfer.

Big Break III Ladies Only

I admit I like the Big Break series. It's a bit cheesy but it's the only reality TV I can stand.

First observations. Most of these women have better swings than the men in BBI or BBII. They obviously have some "eye candy" and getting viewers is what it is all about. I'm cool with that.

Jan is VERY cute. Valeria is way hot and I love the accent. (single and 3 children at 25???) Danielle is nice, especially for the soon to be viagra crowd. Felicia is a fireball and may have the best swing of them all. Liz? Well, let's just say she'd fit right in on the LPGA tour if you catch my drift.

Phil wins 2nd in a row at Pebble

Phil didn't play his best round today, but he had a hell of a cushion. He didn't need to play his best round to win. Mike Weir (my neighbor!) played an excellent round and put a little pressure on Phil. But Phil was so far ahead it just wasn't enough for Weirsy.

I don't know if it is his coaching (short game: Dave Pelz, long game: Rick Smith), his equipment or finally his mental maturity that is making the difference. Perhaps a combination of all three. But Phil is scarrrry good right now.

It's only February and the golf season is very interesting already. Tiger and Vijay already have victories. Where are all those "young guns" now? The big boys are in charge.
