We return from the weekend with a smorgasbord of golf news to assess. We go long on the WGC Match Play, which delivered the best day of golf so far this year. We start with a dramatic reading of an essay that appeared on TV on the unthinkable upset of Lucas Bjerregaard beating Tiger Woods. After having some fun with that, we get to Tiger’s actual play and Rory booting it against him. Then we get into Lee Westwood’s taunt of the American Ryder Cup operation, as well as the Tour attempting to cage the highlight of his ace because he endorses the wrong courier service. Then we give the Sergio-Kuchar concession drama a full reading. We examine how both are wrong and the reactions to the mess. We also discuss Brandel’s position that this Match Play event was not advancing the players who played the best golf, as well as the notion that success here means you should be on the team for the Cup events. We also quickly hit on Nick Faldo’s work, a source sending a nugget on some more Bryson match play antics at the Ryder Cup, and the “browning out” of Louis Oosthuizen’s shirt logo. We wrap with a Masters fact of the day and some Sunday scaries.
