Joining The Club

Is that a golf ball in Phil Mickelson’s pants or is he just stoked to see Tiger gag, particularly after Woods was jumping up and down about being in the mix after Saturday’s round?

Caddie Shack: You Won’t Find Brothers There

    Carl Jackson, who carries the bag for Ben Crenshaw, will be the only black caddie working the Masters this week. Once upon a time, an abundance of black caddies at the Masters and other golf tournaments were a common sight. Times have changed, though.

Dude, There’s Still Hope

    Despite being punked by his nemisis Phil Mickelson for the championship of the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am on Sunday, hope remains alive for Tiger Woods. Vegas has some prop bets on Tiger, with a range of odds on how many Majors he will win.
    If you bet against Tiger winning any Majors this year, the odds are 1-2 against you, meaning the bookies believe he will win at least 1. Odds of him winning 1 Major: 9-5; odds of him winning 2 Majors: 7-1; odds of him winning 3 Majors: 25-1; and odds of him taking all 4 Majors (meaning he doesn’t have a prayer): 125-1.

Speaking Of Tiger…

    Shouldn’t Tiger’s ex-wife be somewhere on the list? What do you mean she isn’t an athlete? Name someone else who has run Tiger down?
    He remains the top earner among athletes, according to Sports Illustrated. Woods, nemesis Phil Mickleson, LeBron, Peyton Manning and A-Rod are the top 5 athletes pulling in the Benjamins. Kobe is 6th.
