Granted, he didn't play too well the last few weeks but unlike Adam Scott, Rory Sabbatini has won this year on the PGA Tour and was the first player bumped off the Presidents Cup points list. Still, Captain Norman didn't have time to drop a dime. Bob Harig reports on the first round leader in Chicago:
Sabbatini, who was bumped out of one of the 10 automatic spots at the final qualifying tournament when South Korea's Y.E. Yang won the PGA Championship, was under consideration for one of the two spots that went to Japan's Ryo Ishikawa and Australia's Adam Scott.
"There was not a single conversation or a single phone call, period -- from anybody," Sabbatini said Thursday at the BMW Championship, where he shot 66 to tie for the first-round lead with Steve Marino.
"You could say I was a little disappointed."
Speaking of Captain Norman, Tim Rosaforte flew with the Shark and bride to the Presidents Cup press conference and never confirms whether the couple was on their fourth or fifth bottle of Greg Norman Reserve Shiraz when Chrissie picked Adam Scott's name out of a hat.
