"But What If The Ball Had Missed The Stick?"

In Golf World's Newsmakers issue Ryan Herrington tackles the tricky question of what would have happened had Tiger's third shot into the 15th hole on Masters Friday had not hit the flagstick.

Herrington pulls if off beautifully and most fun of all is not how he views it impacting the Masters, but the rest of the year where a kinder, happier, less-stressed Woods performs differently.

All hypothetical but all in good fun. Well, unless you're Tiger.
