No More Stricker-Woods?
It seems a little silly that Fred Couples would consider breaking up the red-hot team of Steve Stricker and Tiger Woods from 2009, but really, has the Silver'd Fox really done anything normal since he's become captain?
Word out of Australia is Stricker-Woods could be a done deal, and Tiger might be getting to know Dustin Johnson a lot better as his partner o'choice.
Do I hate the idea? Actually, I do. Tiger made some good points at his Tuesday press conference about how comfort with your partner is such a necessity in these events. Woods commented, "Hopefully, we’ll get put out there together. I know that we feel very comfortable with one another and we were talking about it today."
It does seem a tad crazy, but remember, Stricker is far from 100 percent right now and might just not get a lot of time out there in the team events. If that's the case, Couples might be looking for just about anyone to pair Woods with if he feels he's going to play him in most of the matches (and let's face it, Fred is playing Tiger in all the events. He loves the guy.)
So, yeah, RIP to Stricker-Woods? I sure hope not.
