Dear John Letter…

Poor Big John. I saw the pairings last Sunday, and I thought, “this could be the perfect situation or the worst situation.” Why? Think about the Battle of the Bridges. When Mickelson was playing well and backing John up, John was making birdies like his life depended on it. As Phil faded towards the end, John no longer made the clutch putts to save his team. The same is true for this pairing. Had Tiger and Vijay lit up the course, I have to think that John would have done the same. But with Tiger headed South quickly, and Vijay riding along at 1 under, John let the 6 inches between his ears take over, and has faded to the back of the pack (Granted, John may not have the patience to play this course anyway, but it seems that when he gets on a roll, he shuts off the voices in his head, and makes birdies automatic).
