Interesting Second Round Match-ups at WGC
So, after watching the highlights of a few of Tiger's putts he made to comeback against J.B. Holmes, tipping your hat isn't close to good enough. Are you kidding me with that eagle putt? Was that 50 feet?
Anyway, moving to the second round shouldn't be too hard with a couple of the exciting matches today down in Marana.
Sergio Garcia v. Boo Weekley - Two golfers that normally have a following due to their exciting personalities ("Boo likes fish"), I'm picking Weekley to upset because of Sergio's lack of play this year.
Steve Stricker vs. Hunter Mahan - Along with Tiger, these two golfers were probably the hottest American golfers of 2007. Stricker struggled yesterday so don't be surprised if the one-seed goes does early.
Tiger Woods vs. Arron Oberholser - Hey Arron, did you see Duke lose to Miami last night? I think most sports fans would agree that you wouldn't want to be Duke's opponent the next time on the hardwood. You could probably learn a lot from this point.
Phil Mickelson vs. Stuart Appleby - A couple of vets match-up early in the desert. Yesterday I would have penciled Schmickey in no problem, but after his lackadaisical win yesterday over Pat Perez, Phil could be joining Ernie for club sandwiches and an Arnold Palmer.
