Seeing Sergio playing with Tiger Woods in the final round of the Buick made me think back to 1999, and what could have been.

Jose Maria Olazabal’s play to get into a playoff on Sunday was impressive. But, as soon as Tiger made the playoff, the look on Ollie’s face changed.

1. Tiger, 7 back: Tiger shot a 68 yesterday, but is still 7 back (-5) from the leader Brandt Jobe (-12). Tiger is using the new Nike Sasquatch (SQ) driver for the first time in a tournament, so he says he’s having trouble trusting it. On the first day, I think he only hit one […]
