News from the PGA ranks: Former Tiger standout Lucas Glover was selected by U.S. President’s Cup Captain Jack Nickalaus to round out the U.S. squad. For those not in the know (including myself prior to the articles I read) the President’s Cup matches the U.S. vs. an international team made of players from any country outside the U.S. and Europe (they form the Ryder Cup crowd). He will be joined on the team but such no names as Woods, Furyk, Mickelson, Johnson (Master’s winner), Howell III, Toms, Verplank, Stricker, and Cink. Woody Austin edged Glover out in points towards the team with his performance at the PGA this weekend but Nickalaus made an executive decision to take Glover. There is always a chance that some of the big names will pull out due to injury (Mickelson) but it is doubtful. This is a match play event so th following names will be Glover and company’s competition: Weir (wild card pick), Sabbatini, Scott, Choi, Cabrera, Immelman, Ogilvy, Goosen, Els, and “Slurpy” Singh.
If you are a fan of golf this should be a good tourney to keep up with, especially with a Tiger Alum involved.
Note: This gnome does not condone name calling but some players that whine and complain while making more money than god playing GOLF, deserve this treatment…especially those that feel they are “entitled.”
