Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club

This week’s tournament is the Transitions Championship, which is formerly the Tampa Bay Classic and will be played at Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club. Last year Jim Furyk notched the victory at -13 in a pretty decent field. Also finishing in the top 10 last year: KJ Choi, Bubby Watson, Nick Watney, Ratief Goosen, Luke Donald, Steve Stricker, and Padraig Harrington.

Yesterday’s leader, Phil Mickelson fell 3 spots today to T4/-7 and shot a +2/72. Today was not the bogy free round that Phil produced yesterday. He had 4 bogyes today with 1 eagle, 1 birdie, and 12 pars. That single eagle was on his first hole of the day, the par 5, 1st. He hit a 189 yard 8 iron for his approach. On my best day that’s at least a 5 iron. The driver however was what did Phil in. He only found about half of the fairways and had 12 more puts in round 2. The lead is now in sole posession of Scott McCarron at -10 who shot a -3/68 today and a -7/64 yesterday. He scored 5 birdies, 11 pars, and 2 bogeys today, including a chip in from just off the green on the par 4, 3rd hole. Not a bad round for the UCLA grad.

There’s nothing to talk about in the golf world, and damnit, that sucks.  So how are we going to spend our time before the Benz in a few weeks and the “real” start to the tour in a few months?  Why, listing the hell out of everything we can, that’s how.

Today, we’re not going to order these like in the Under, instead, we’ll just throw em up in any order because they’re all so deserving (or undeserving…whatever).  So lets cut the BS and get right to the meat.

Adam Scott: Where to begin…maybe the four top-10’s in majors since 2000 or the fact that he’s missed TWICE as many cuts in the same time?  Or what about stealing Tiger’s swing, despite it’s ineffiencies, and failing to improve at all?  Or we could use my personal favorite…the unimaginative short game and terrible clutch putting (Houston aside).  All sound good.

Whatever the reason is, I’m sick of seeing him on TV because chicks like him.  I want to see good golf, not sprayed drives and someone who looks like they’re having about as much fun as if they were at a funeral (hey, at least Vijay is a good golfer…his game is fun even if he looks bored to tears).  Scott just doesn’t care and all we see on TV is him wasting his ridiculous amount of talent.  If he carried himself like Geoff Ogilvy, he’d have multiple majors…easily.
