Well, It Is Still The Tour Championship This Week
As golf gets ready to snuggle in that cave for hibernation, we do have to keep in mind that one of the elite golf tournaments is hosting the PGA Tour's finest, even if it doesn't mean a whole helluva lot.
The Tour Championship kicks off Thursday at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta with 30 of the finest golfers around participating. The tournament will be short, sweet and split $7 million between all the participants.
I know the hangover of the Ryder Cup is looming, but here are a couple of groups you should watch on Thursday.
1:00 PM EST, Hunter Mahan and Stewart Cink -- Any chance these two come out rocking the American red shirts from Sunday? I'd pay a little extra if they'd just play alternate shot for old times sake.
1:50, Anthony Kim and Mike Weir -- The saddest part is Sergio Garcia goes off one time after Kim. How great would that have been? Think every time Garcia hit it close in that round Kim just reminded him, "Nice shot Serg, 5 and 4?"
Camilo Villegas and Vijay Singh -- We are starting the Volkswagen watch in this match. If a car can take Vijay out, Camilo still have a good chance of winning the FedEx Cup. Also, that is the only way he can win the FedEx Cup.
