It's touching to witness Hunter Mahan's bravery in deciding to enter a golf tournament here in California, that offensive state he made the mistake of acknowledging to President Bush as his birthplace!
More importantly, Stephen Ames is in the same field. Hopefully he'll be coming off his ninth straight Skins Game win!
