So by now you should all know that Tiger is in serious jeopardy of losing his #1 spot to Phil Mickelson. In order for Phil to dethrone him, he has to earn about 45 more points than Tiger. A 1st place finish for Mickelson and any placing outside of the top 5 for Tiger would set the numbers flying.
What if Phil doesn’t win? If Phil comes in 2nd, Tiger would have to place outside of the top 10. If Tiger fails to make the cut like he did at Quail hollow, Phil could take the title with a 4th or better placing.
5 out of the last 8 Players Championship have been won by International players, and with Rory McIlroy performance at last weeks Quail Hollow, this caveman thinks the up and coming Irishman has a good shot.
Nothing against Tiger Woods, but I would certainly like to see Rory take 1st, Phil take 2nd, and Tiger finish outside of the top 10. The world of golf needs an uprising, and that combination would produce some of the best headlines we have seen in a while.
What do you think Rockheads?
Bonus: Tiger’s finishes in the last 5 at TPC Sawgrass.
