Every golf news outlet worth their weight in copy this week has taken a second to examine just exactly who Brendan Jones is. As you probably know now, Jones is the poor soul who will be facing Tiger Woods on Wednesday.
I spent some time earlier in the week digging up all I could about Jones, and came up with enough to write a post about it over at FanHouse.
Some of the highlights of the guy's career:
-- He's 33 and from Australia.
-- He won eight Japan Tour events in a span of six years.
-- In 2004, he played eight Nationwide Tour events, carding five top-10s with a win mixed in and earning nearly $300,000.
-- He's a Pisces.
This will be the most pressure Jones has ever had on his golf game, so here is hoping he doesn't throw up directly on his slacks. Could you imagine if he really took down Woods?
