Has anyone Seen Tiger Woods?

To all the people on my email list, ENOUGH WITH THE TIGER WOODS JOKES! I have probably deleted them anyway. I know every story has its news cycle but I ma jus tired of hearing rumor after rumor about the whereabouts of Tiger Woods.

I heard he was in South Africa at Oprah’s House, or maybe in South Florida hiding out with mistress # 1 or maybe he was in New York City laying low at the trump Towers. Maybe Tiger has gone to Nepal to visit the Dalai Lama and find tranquility and peace. Who cares!! I know one place Tiger isn’t and that’s on the golf course.

The game needs him to comeback and I am sure the PGA Tour and Television networks have search parties out looking for the biggest name in golf and not to mention the largest revenue producer on tour.

This Tiger Woods Controversy might have a bit of a lasting backlash in that I am interested to see what kind of ‘MEDIA” types arrive at Tiger’s much hailed return wherever that may be. Is TMZ going to hire a golf writer to follow Mr. Woods? It will be interesting to see. I am sure the media folks at the PGA Tour don’t this turn into a media circus with paparazzi running around course trying to get that shot for the National Enquirer.

Personally, I just want this thing to be over. Yes Tiger proved that he was human and not and not such a smart one when it comes to his game off the course. But despite his missteps he the # 1 name in the game and golf needs him The PGA Tour needs him. The fans need him and more important I need him back so I can stop getting Tiger Woods joke emails.

'Keep it in the short grass"

2010 PGA Tour Season is Underway.

The 2010 PGA Tour season kicked off with the SBS Championship in Hawaii. Austrailian and defending champion Geoff Ogilvy made it back to wins this year with a 2 shot victory of South Africa’s Rory Sabatini.

Ryan Newman became the season second winner with a 1-shot Victory at the Sony Open also held in Hawaii. His -15 under 265 was just enough to bst Robert Allenby.

The tour moves to the mainland this week with the star studded Bob Hope Classic. Pat Perez with try and make it back to back wins for him this week as well.

RE: Golf loses a Legend: William J Powell

Golf Pioneer William J Powell passed away yesterday with his family by his side. Mr Powell was truly a legend in the game of golf and he will be dearly missed. I recieved a call from my publisher Debert Cook last night informing me of Mr. Powell's passing.

I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Powell and his Daughter Renee at the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2002. He was a warm and quiet man who made a lasting impact on the game of golf and in the lives of all the people he helped and mentored.

I am so happy that Mr. Powell had the opportunity to see the tribute issue The African American Golfers Digest released earlier this year. Mr. Powell was a hero and an inspiration to me and I will miss him.

R.I.P. William J. Powell
