"Are you supposed to be here?"

From Brett Avery's PGATour.com AT&T blog:

2:55 p.m.
Are you supposed to be here?

Here's something from that last rain burst. Michael Bamberger of Sports Illustrated -- he's the writer involved in the Michelle Wie drop brouhaha last year -- walks up to the fourth tee trailing Murray. Murray is not pleased.

"Who are you?" Murray demands as partner Scott Simpson stands over his teed ball.

Bamberger looks as if he's trying to gauge Murray's comedic temperature. "I'm a writer with Sports Illustrated," Bamberger says.

"Are you allowed in here? Shouldn't you be outside the ropes?"

By now he's fingering Bamberger's credentials, hanging around his neck on a lanyard. Murray is not convinced.

"Yes," Bamberger says, looking around as if sensing a security guard is about to grab him by the collar.

"How long have you been following me?" Murray demands.

"Two days."

Murray waits two beats and turns as Jeff Sluman hits his drive. "You don't know what it's like to have the blood sucked out of you."
