I really don't care, however, I would like to see an AMERICAN win it! And I also don't think Tiger (Super BOY) can win the true Grand Slam this year either! He's damn good, but it ain't gonna happen! The Golf Gods won't let that happen.

AMEN to that!!! I can honestly see him winning 90% of the events he enters this year... this is the closest he's been in a long time to playing like he wants... his swing is complete and his game is only vunerable to minor glitches like a few yards too short or long or an occasional stray drive which we've all seen him recover from and recover well... i'm looking forward to watching him play

Edit: misspelled word

One of my favorite personalities is Rory Sabatini but i really don't seem him making a run of things this year... i like steve stricker and our local boy from around here stewart cink's chances and somewhat dark horses... maybe not the sexiest names in the sport but they're both great ball strikers... as long as vijay doesn't win i'm fine... i hope his bag falls apart, breaks every club he brought w/ him, and he has to borrow some lefty clubs to finish on sunday... better yet i hope he doesn't even make the cut... most likely tiger wins though but i would love for any body but vijay to give him a run of things

I personally think Rory is a little too hot-headed for the tour, I also see the argument that is what golf could use to liven it up but I don't dig him one bit.
So, I'm at the Northern Trust open at Riviera in February when I come across him on the 17th tee.
rory hits and it's going towards the fairway bunker.
I scream "get in the bunker", as all sounds seem to stop.
rory turns around with a staring glance at me for what seems to be minutes.
he then says "do you really enjoy being out here?"
I reply "of course, this is great" while sipping a nice cold beverage.
he shakes his head and walks away.
I yell "good luck, rory!"
He is fuming from his ears. My group won't let me continue to follow due to this "incident" although many others in the crowd gave me a pat on the back.
Rory is in the bunker, hits into another fairway bunker, hits into the lip and back to his feet, into the greenside bunker, onto green and a two-putt for a 7 on the par 5.

Way to keep your cool Rory.. I'm a Tiger fan and he has continuously went after tiger and when he left tiger's tourney early and dumped the rental car at the terminal it just wasn't right! To this day people that were with me still give me a hard time for heckling, I didn't mean to get his attention but it will definitely be something I remember for a long time.

Tiger is going to have a lot of work to do though this week!

Funk you may a great guy and I don't want you to take this the wrong way, but what you did has no place in golf. If you know the game players and fans alike never pull against anyone, at least not at a tournament site. This game is a gentlemen's game and to remain as such I would hope some of this kind of behavior will not be tolerated by the PGA or USGA.

No offence intended, hey everyone gets overly excited once in a while even UMP but that's a whole other midget stripper thing. :D

I understand your point. I have played since I was 13 and taught by my grandfather, thru junior golf, high school golf, and a bit at a JC. I completely understand the etiquette involved while golfing. I didn't yell in his backswing. He dishes out all his mad talk so he can take it as well, I guess I shouldn't have sunk to his level!!

GOOOOO Tiger!!! Tell me you wouldn't love to see him come back and win THE MASTERS after a 6 shot deficit 3 rounds in!!!

However, if Immelman wins I'll be happy for him...I think he's a fantastic player and a real gentleman and sportsman.

And you know a little piece of you thought Trevor was going to choke after the water then the bunker?

Sorry, I should a posted the whole story,

By DOUG FERGUSON - AP Golf Writer
AUGUSTA, Ga.(AP) Trevor Immelman has never felt better.
Four months after he had a tumor removed from his back, Immelman handled the wind and pressure of Augusta National far better than anyone chasing him Sunday to win the Masters, the first South African in a green jacket in 30 years.
Immelman held it together around Amen Corner and stretched his lead to as many as six shots on the back nine, taking the life out of a Masters that began with so much hype.
A two-putt par on the final hole gave him a 3-over 75, matching the highest final round by a Masters champion. Even so, it was good enough for a three-shot victory over Tiger Woods, whose hopes for a calendar Grand Slam ended with a thud.
Woods never got within five shots of the lead when he was on the course, twice missed birdie putts inside 8 feet and had to settle for a 72 and his second consecutive runner-up finish in the Masters.
"I learned my lesson there with the press," said Woods, who started the talk about a Grand Slam by stating three months ago that winning all four majors in the same year was "easily within reason."
The only slam possibilities now belong to Immelman, a 28-year-old with a polished swing, who finally realized his potential in the wicked wind of Augusta and a final round that yielded only four rounds under par.

"Men's Vogue"
Jeff Gordon became the first NASCAR driver to be featured in "Men's Vogue."

The 'Fabulous Factor' for Gordon keeps on going up

By Raygan Swan (http://www.nascar.com/news/opinion/raygan_swan), NASCAR.COM

01:42 PM EDT

var clickExpire = "-1";Jeff Gordon (http://www.nascar.com/drivers/dps/jgordon00/cup/index.html): Don't hate him because he's beautiful.
Ladies, admit it. You all can agree that Gordon is the cat's meow, easy on the eyes and downright charming.
But all the No. 24 haters will tell you Gordon is nothing but a pretty face, disconnected from NASCAR's homespun, Southern fan base and even (sigh) light in the loafers?
As ridiculous as it sounds, some men apparently still believe if you don't have a visible Skoal ring in your Wranglers, you must be gay!
These types who say Gordon is light in the loafers merely suffer from I-wish-I-could-fill-those-loafers jealousy. And by the way, Gordon's loafers: Prada!
The subject, along with our sport's four-time champion, is discussed in Men's Vogue this month where the Hendrick Motorsports driver dons European slim-cut suits and could be mistaken for one of the magazine's staff models. Yes, he looks that good, but I also say that because the Vogue readership is likely unfamiliar with Gordon off the track and out of his fire suit.
Editor-in-chief Jay Fielden chose Gordon, the first NASCAR driver to be featured in a Vogue publication, because he's another talented athlete, married to a model, and is hazed for expressing too much individual style.
Fielden writes, "Dale Earnhardt Sr. may have called him 'Wonder Boy,' but his crisp appearance -- 'I'm a Prada shoe guy' -- and Manhattan bio do to the Talladega locals what Jean Girard and his 'jazz moozeek' did to Ricky Bobby."
Anyway, in the article, which highlights and even perpetuates several NASCAR and Gordon stereotypes, the driver further demonstrates why he continues to be the class of the field.
He embraces the idea of hybrid racecars, talks of why he chose the Big Apple over Dixieland and why refined taste isn't just for girly men.
Still, the fashionable statement I appreciated the most: "The man has liquid nitrogen in his veins and carbon-steel castanets in his fireproof undies."

Yes, that describes Gordon alright, but more than that I appreciate Gordon's willingness to be the millionaire, sports mogul, model-izer, metro-sexual he has become without apology. I appreciate Gordon's unwillingness to pander to Southern cultures and pleasantries simply to please a crowd.
Sure, he grew up in Indiana and could use double negatives and wear Dickies with the best of them. (This is now me perpetuating the stereotypes) He could've refused to shave his working-man's mustache and left his eyebrows to converge into a monobrow, yes.
But he didn't. He epitomizes the Manhattan culture, wears flat-front pants and a trendy coiffed hair-do.
For this, a large faction of NASCAR fans hate him. And more of them hate him because of his natural ability behind the wheel. And most of them hate the fact that this time last year, Gordon garnered his first victory at Phoenix International Raceway, tying him with the late Dale Earnhardt (http://www.nascar.com/drivers/dps/dearnhar00/cup/index.html) for sixth in all-time wins.
This pushed the Gordon haters right over the edge. A barrage of beer cans poured from the stands onto the No. 24 Chevrolet as Gordon went on to perform a burnout in celebration.
I would have to say displays such as these makes the aforementioned stereotypes ring true and continues to have outsiders believing NASCAR has failed to evolve past beer bellies and wife beaters, again, another stereotype.
So for me, Gordon is the pocket full of cool points I dip into when arguing with non-NASCAR types who choose to believe the sport is still steeped in moonshine and Southern fried.
He's the bridge that will gap a new generation of potential NASCAR fans who identify "going green" as an environmental movement, not a change in track conditions.
Gordon can captivate and convert Gen-Xers at home watching Saturday Night Live to avid NASCAR fans and speak to stay-at-home moms hooked to daytime TV like Live with Regis and Kelly.
As someone who has hosted to both network shows, Gordon is the pop culture pass NASCAR needs to keep the sport relevant with mainstream audiences.
This is why I love Gordon and his cologne-add, wine making, fashion-week-going fine, fabulous self.
He's takes NASCAR to a new dimension and satisfies the appetites of fans who follow the sport as a lifestyle, not just camber and carbon fiber seats.
So again, don't hate him because he's beautiful. Love him for what he does for the sport.
The opinions expressed are solely those of the writer.

T.I. had a heck of a weekend and i'm sure it's a dream come true... Tiger accidentally placed second due to not making puts but hitting the ball well in general the rest of the field that was ahead of Tiger just melted away on Sunday which has become the norm... notable Immelman shot his worst round of the week on Sunday while Tiger shot his 3rd round at even 72
