Geeze, did the big boys think Buick couldn't pay out the purse? I know some people pointed out the quality of field for the final Buick Open, but this stat from CBS was scary.
Tiger broke from his tradition of guarding his top secret Nike balls by tossing a few to the 17th and 18th hole crowds.
Larry Gage reports:
“I’ve played all around the world, and I’ve never seen a day like this,” said Woods, also the 2002 and 2006 winner at Warwick Hills. “This event has always been special, but today was something else.”
He acknowledged thinking about his walk up 18 at Warwick Hills being his last, leading to him throwing his ball with a lot of velocity back down the fairway to fans. He also tossed a ball into the gallery at 17.
“I never do that, but today was different,” Woods said. “We aren’t coming back here, and I wanted to thank all these people.”
It also seems there was a moment of gastrointestinal humor for those watching the CBS feed. Bob Weeks would bet his house that it was course reporter and well known flatulence conoisseur David Feherty. You be the judge:
Seems the PGA Tour made a copyright claim on the flatulence video. It was 24 seconds long. I believe if the video could be trimmed to 15 seconds they won't have such a claim.
