Tiger missed the cut this weekend at the Quail Hollow. He’s missed cuts before and has kept his #1 spot, so what’s all the fuss about?
For starters: Rory McIlroy! Not only does he share the cover of Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11, but just 3 days before his 21st birthday, he became the youngest player on the PGA Tour since Tiger won at Disney in ’96, and set a course record of 62 while doing it. This also marked Rory’s first win on the PGA Tour and boosted him back to 9 in the world rankings.
Next Up: On the other side of the pond, Ryo Ishikawa shot a 58, and at only 18 years old, the future of golf looks astounding.
Lastly: While Phil didn’t win he trotted in at 2nd, gaining points while Tiger has begun to lose them, shrinking the gap even more towards that #1 Spot.
So What do you think Rockheads? Is the 2010 season going to see a new world’s #1?
Bonus: According to a recent study, John Daly’s “beer gut” may have been from genetics and not the booze. And that goes for everyone!
