Who Doesn't Love a Honda?!?!
After the WGC World Match-Play ended on Sunday in dramatic fashion, the golf world takes a little baby nap until the Masters, especially since the move of the Players Championship to May.
We might see Tiger Woods twice until the April 10th Masters, so here is where we have to make these "other" PGA Tour events a little interesting. You hope to see some rookies like Chez Reavie or Martin Laird get a win to secure them for a couple of years, but most of the time the back-seat riders on tour pick up a win or a top-five to get them in the top 125 for 2009.
Think about it like this - the entire field has a total of 17 major championships to El Tigre's 13, with five of those coming from the artists formerly known as Ernie Els and Retief Goosen. Also, David Duval and Davis Love III are in the field, so follow those guys around if you ever get mixed up and think it's 1999.
I'd say Steve Marino and Justin Leonard are my picks to win, but I also picked the Patriots in the Super Bowl and Arizona to cover against UCLA, when they got beat by a smidgen under 30 points. Yep, my picks go a looooonnngg way.
