The commentators on the Golf Channel were making me smile last night. So excited about the match play this weekend and if Tiger and Mickelson are in the final match ... oh, wait a minute, what if Tiger would loose his first match?? I can see that if he does the world won't be watching with the same undivided attention! Hard on the PGA, hmmmm. The announcers will be trying to drum up excitement. I really like match play, looking forward to it.

We start UT Baseball on Friday, so will be super busy for the next three months!

Jo: Tiger is the draw for watching golf but he is skipping so many tournaments you always need another player to cheer with.

Ben Curtis went to KSU and was on the golf team but he only plays well in streaks. I still follow him if he does well.
