Players Championship executive director Brian Goin said if the 2007 tournament gets similar weather to what's predicted for this week, he would be more than pleased.Well, there's always hope for that single-digit-under par score! Let us pray for them.
"We've had a little rain this week, but overall, the temperatures haven't been that hot, and we've had some cloud cover," Goin said. "Maybe we could hope for sunnier weather, but if we get this every year, I wouldn't complain."
Goin said gentler winds than in March would be offset by a firmer playing surface and difficult Bermuda rough.
"If someone played really well under these conditions, they could shoot 14 under," Goin said. "But I can picture a winning score in single-digits under-par. It's what we're hoping for with a firmer, faster course."
Do not get into the habit of pointing out the peculiarly salient blade of grass which you imagine to have been the cause of your failing to hole your putt. You may sometimes find your adversary who has successfully holed his, irritatingly short-sighted on these occasions. Moreover, the opinion of a man who has just missed his putt, about the state of the green, is usually accepted with some reserve.
