I was about to bang out a post suggesting Tiger can't be long for The King's event at Bay Hill, what with a family move someday to McArthur and all this hay-harvesting that can only cause a pre-Masters injury or unnecessary swing quirks.
But then I got to see him looking for his ball on 18 Sunday (photo by Fred Vuich's golf.com gallery) en route to a miraculous bogey. Now, you could say Tiger is accruing too many negative vibes while Mickelson and Ogilvy are lounging around, patting themselves on the back for skipping yet another freak show engineered by The King.
But then I realized they could be jealous. After all, look at the lost ball prep Tiger is getting under his belt. Imagine if he airmails the 12th green at Augusta and it's just a cameraman and one of those 93-year old rules officials up in the azaleas with not a clue where the ball ended up and no Bobby Clampett to come find it a few hours later?
After Saturday, Tiger will be ready for such a nightmare scenario. Thanks Arnold!
Doug Ferguson reports on the wacky Saturday, which proved once again that if you want to have a goofy setup, you better hope the wind doesn't blow!
Here's how crazy the wind can make Bay Hill: Zach Johnson started the third round nine shots out of the lead, shot a 68 and will play in the final threesome with O'Hair and Woods.
"I don't know how you're supposed to play a golf course like that," O'Hair said. "So I just think everybody tries to hang on for dear life. Sometimes bogey is not a bad score. I think bogey is almost par for some holes."
