well, here it is, the time of year i always look forward to because the circus comes to town.
i've been attending the bridgestone (formerly the world series of golf) for a number of years, the first time was in the late 80's. i remember 1990 and jose maria olazabal's magical week when he shot a record score and lapped the field. i was there for phil mickelson's win in 1996. and then some guy named tiger woods arrived on the scene and stole the show. anyone who has attended the tournament can't help but be greeted by tiger by the flags which mark his many world golf championship victories.
i made plans late last year to attend this year's tournament, but unfortunately am unable to go. its the first time i've missed in whole or in part since 2006. i guess i'll be there in spirit. tiger will have to win without me (lol), which i'm sure he will! i have a feeling this will be 2007 all over again for tiger, when he won bridgestone and the pga back-to-back. he's due, he's primed, and pining for a major takeover of professional golf, again!!
last year, tiger played a practice round with the defending champion, hunter mahan. i don't think he'll be playing a practice round with the defending champion, this year ;).
have a good week tiger.
As I was watching the Open last week, I had to wonder what Steve Williams was thinking. "Since I made those comments at the Bridgestone last year about it being my best win, we haven't won again and Tiger's won 3 times."
Probably not what he was thinking, but one has to wonder...............
IMHO....they will be successful together! Right now.....Tiger is still re-developing his game and Joey is learning the ins and outs of Tiger-golf, too. I believe they have a good rapport that will only grow stronger over time.
GO TIGER......Rake in Bridgestone #8
stevie was on the bag for 13 of tiger's 14 major wins.
i don't think so.
it has nothing to do with whether or not one thinks stevie is a bad person.
Obviously, twitb, you are equating success with majors only.......I'm not. I do believe Tiger will top Jack's record......but I don't believe that will be the sole marker of a successful career.
Hey....and since when did Stevie or anyother caddy swing the clubs and putter to "win" a tournament????
