FYI: from GOLF ChANNEL
ESPN had two stories today purported as "breaking news".
First, Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy will be paired for rounds 1 & 2 at the Barclays on Aug. 21-22.
Secondly, Nadal will not play the 2012 U.S. Open starting on August 27, 2012 due to a knee problem.
Wouldn't surprise me, I checked on Wikipedia and it reported that Nadal withdrew from the 2012 Olympics due to tendinitis in his knee. Didn't he take sometime off due to exhaustion too?
Yes, sounds like an exhibition sponsored by Shell Oil Co. Now, it is a wait & see period to learn whether or not Tiger vs. Rory will be shown LIVE on tgc. If, LIVE, it maybe another "all nighter" for us in the States. :)
would that make federer the odds-on favorite for the us open?
as for the tiger-rory showdown, i digress.
and von, as things come in threes, you forgot the breaking news that joe paterno cried after he was fired from penn state, according to an upcoming gq article.
