Video: Davis Love And His New (Squirrel) Friend

USA assistant cart driver Davis Love adopted a squirrel on day one of the Presidents Cup. The squirrel has since been placed on Tiger Woods' shoulder, so we have that video to look forward to.

Waiting for next thread...

What's with the PGA website - describing the first hole of the first match - what's with the putt count vs. stroke count (Goofy):

1 469 4 •Mahan: hit his Tee shot 298 yds to the left fairway, 172 yds from the hole
•Snedeker: hit his 3rd putt (Stroke 1) 300 yds to 165 yds from the hole
•Day: hit his Tee shot 339 yds to the left fairway, 135 yds from the hole
•DeLaet: hit his 2nd putt (Stroke 1) 310 yds to 154 yds from the hole
•Mahan: hit stroke 2 from the fairway 166 yds to the green
•Snedeker: hit his 4th putt (Stroke 2) 154 yds to 90 ft from the hole
•Day: hit stroke 2 from the fairway 135 yds to the green
•DeLaet: hit his 3rd putt (Stroke 2) 153 yds to 12 ft from the hole
•Mahan: hit his 1st putt (Stroke 3) 54 ft 7 in. to 2 ft 10 in. from the hole
•Snedeker: hit his 5th putt (Stroke 3) 88 ft to 4 ft from the hole
•Day: hit his 1st putt (Stroke 3) 24 ft 11 in. to 2 ft 10 in. from the hole
•DeLaet: hit his 4th putt (Stroke 3) in the hole for a Birdie
•Mahan: hit his 2nd putt (Stroke 4) in the hole for a Par
•Snedeker: hit his 6th putt (Stroke 4) in the hole for a Par

The stroke count makes sense, but it's tough sledding on a sunndy day for no apparent benefit.
Tim, while I agree its all messed up (I cant find any logic to the numbers), at least the pgatour is providing the data, I think the first time they have done it. Would be better if it was on shottracker so we can see graphical data, but I'll take what they are giving.

Of course it would be simpler if they just showed every shot, but we all know we have to get our fill of that bald guys speeches and good ole Jimmie's blathering.

Wiki reports squirrels almost never rabid.

CDC has links to diseases directly and indirectly transmitted by rodents.

http://www.cdc.gov/rodents/diseases/indirect.html

My personal favorite (in the indirectly transmitted group) is "babesiosis." I suspect many team members are either already afflicted or have been so and may be at risk for reinfection. Immunity is never developed in this disease.

1. Tiger befriends squirrel.
2. Squirrel signs for Nike.
3. Squirrel loses all senses and ability to locate nuts.
4. Squirrel ends up on web.com course, talking about the old days of ''just me and Tiger''. Earns nickname of 'Old Poults'.

+1 to mehstg. If Love keeps putting that squirrel in his front pocket, it won't have any problem finding nuts - although the U.S. team will have to find a new Captain.
