The season rolls on

With the PGA Championship put in a nutshell by mulligan, this week will prove to be a week for those to try and fulfill their season goals. The NEC at Firestone has been lengthened and will repeat as course built for bombers. You have to expect the usual subjects to fight it out (Els, Woods, Singh, Phil). But in my opinion, you have to assume Tiger has his world ranking foremost in his head, and will do everything in his power to try and build some type of buffer between himself and his chasers. Granted, his play this year has been nowhere near that of the #1 player in the world, but I have to assume he is spending all his waking hours getting whatever problems he can identify out of his system. Thus said, I have to view him as the favorite, as the oddsmakers in Europe have already done. For the Renoe/Tahoe, it will be a crapshoot as always, but there are some items to point out. Both Duffy Waldorf and Tim Herron are favorites, and both have strong records at this course. Duffy also put together three good rounds in The PGA Championship. But I would look at those on the bubble for some surprising possible winners, if not top finishers. Lucas Glover and John Rollins are both on the money list between 125 and 130, and would love to get their playing priveledges secured for next year. They are both good overall drivers, and by their records, Rollins has made the cut in his last 7 tournaments, and Glover has made the cut in his last six. And as a final note, what would make me happiest would be to see Corey Pavin put on a show and get himself a spot in next year’s Mercedes Championship. It’s been far too long since we’ve seen that occur.
