Can anyone think of a worse possible venue -- excluding the NBC angle? Well, OK, maybe Larry Nelson's den, but other than that, no.

Wonder what the over/under was on the percent of layabout housewives on vacation that knew who Tom was? 10%? NBC never fails to fail.

Matt Lauer stole Sobel's haircut.

From that headline I begin to think that Watson had more than a little to do with redefining this box the PGA is so ready to think outside. (Such an overworked, late 20th century, cliché).

A lesson in campaigning for the next contenders -- the subtlety is worthy of a Shakespearean villain. Euros be warned. This guy is capable, despite the gap-toothed, freckled aw-shucksery, of darting like an asp.
