Best teams in the President’s Cup
1. Robot team: Retief Goosen/Adam Scott, 3-0-1, a real juggernaut. What they lack in personality they make up for in play. Spanked Woods/Couples on the 1st day and did not look back. Only 1 draw, going all square against Leonard/Verplank this morning. But Goose/Scott spanked Leonard/Verplank this afternoon, 5-4.
1. Mick/Marco team: Lefty and DiMarco, 3-0-1. Damn, why weren’t these guys paired against the robots??? That would’ve been something. These guys hit more birdies in one day than I’ve hit all year. Gave a thrashing to the very formidable team of Campbell/Cabrera, 5-up this morning. DiMarco is one of the gutsiest match players around. Captain Jack may have to put DiMarco in one of the first singles matches, maybe against one of the robots.
Heaviest playing partner
Tiger Woods: Jim Furyk has been carrying the lackluster Tiger since the first hole. 6 birdies Furyk; 1 birdie Tiger. Maybe it’s time to shave that goatee, El Tigre, to lighten the load? Furyk must be thinking, Who is this guy who’s kidnapped the real Tiger Woods? Tiger must have heard my trash-talking, because he sunk a birdie on 16, followed by a ferocious uppercut. The putt turned out to be the winning point for Tiger/Furyk over Singh/Appleby.

Best golf commentator
Johnny Miller: this guy is so insightful and dead-on with his comments, it’s scary. Said that Tiger Woods looked almost stunned to see Jim Furyk draining so many putts, feeling maybe somewhat upstaged. With the look on Tiger’s emotionless face after Furyk sunk another birdie, Johnny’s comment was spot on. This guy calls the shot by the sound of the hit, noting if it’s one notch up and whether it will be short, etc. Said Miller of the constant errant driving of Woods and Singh: “They’re like popcorn, you don’t know where they’ll pop next.”
