The USGA has decided to screw around with the pairings. Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, and Adam Scott are all playing together — which ensures that either Woods or Mickelson will not play well, given the “kryptonite” effect and bad mojo the two World’s Best players have on each other. What was the USGA thinking? Didn’t they see what happened when Hal Sutton put Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson in one group at the Ryder Cup?

At least, the USGA is consistent. It’s paired all of the Top 12 players together: (1) Ernie Els, Justin Rose, Geoff Ogilvy, (2) Stewart Cink, Sergio Garcia, and Vijay Singh, and (3) KJ Choi, Jim Furyk, and Steve Stricker.

Already tournament organizers are worried about the traffic gridlock that the Woods-Mickelson pairing might produce in San Diego, where Mickelson grew up and Tiger, of course, is a huge attraction.
