On the tee from America, Tiger Woooooods!!! ... On the tee from Canada, Mike Weeeeeir!!! ...
The Ryder Cup and The Presidents Cup would have to give birth to The Olympic Cup... I'm not a genius, (but sometimes I think I am, because I can put together a kick-a** outfit and do my hair in like, 15 mins) but I'm reading golf writers bash the Beijing Olympics for denying golf.
Note: What's the diff? It's not everyday you see beach volleyball and the 400 meter dash on NBC Prime Time with 5-hour coverage. Let random sports that don't have a shot in hell of making "year-round weekend coverage" get the spotlight for 2-3 weeks, once every 4 years.
I could never have enough "Retief Goosen" in my life, but he can take a backseat to "Michael Phelps'" butterfly for a week or two;) How else am I gonna Spice Up MY Sports Life"? ;)

First of all - Play Golf Designs Inc. is a fix to that problem, like 2 years ago:) Hewitt and the rest of the golf world is reporting that the LPGA is cracking down on foreigners not being able to communicate with the media/sponsors/yadayada in English. LPGA called a mandatory meeting last Wednesday to discuss the 411 (code word for info) of this policy.
Note 1: LPGA consists of 121 international players from 26 countries, including 45 players from South Korea.
Note 2: LPGA is denying that this is a stunt to maintain and salvage sponsors in a struggling ecomomy, saying that they are stronger than before. Come on!
Note to LPGA: Hello? If you are going to make a "policy" then at least justify it - or you are leaving room for speculation. These 121 players are your bread and butter... obviously, or you wouldn't put a "policy" in order.
They should have announced a Glorious"5-Star English Program" designed specifically for all foriegn players, endorsed by Rosetta Stone... Rumor has it that players are going to have to start taking a test to pass ... or else...
In other news, here is what is interesting to me: Kim Kardashian is going to be on next seasons' "Dancing with the Stars". I think Annika should do it next season since she is going to put to stix up for a bit. It would be good for the game:)

As much as I like Christie Kerr and her super-cocky-'tude - I'm not sure she can claim that title. Kerr has earned a "sexy golfer" role - "Respek" -Ali G - No doubt she's cute... but sexiest? One of the sexiest?
It's no secret that Christie and Natalie are like, total BFF's (best friends forever). BFF's have to give BFF's "shout outs", but friendship aside...
Note to Natalie: Obviously you can't tell the media that YOU are the sexiest, so the humble/cordial thing to do is claim your BFF.
I think that in a head-to-head match in terms of "sexy" Christie Kerr would lose to SEVERAL LPGA ladies... that's just me, and I am usually right all of the time. Just ask me...

According to the Globe & Mail: "I really don't know why Michelle continues to do this," Sorenstam told reporters at the British Open. "We have a major this week and, if you can't qualify for a major, I don't see any reason why you should play with the men. We all have different agendas in life."
Note to Annika: 'Sup Annika, point well taken, different agenda indeed... You see, firstly, the trip to Reno is much closer than Europe. I am guessing the appearance deal (if any) was fairly lucrative and with full Golf Channel coverage, Michelle can keep her sponsors smiling all weekend, giving them all the more reason to sip on some cognac. Lastly, she "continues" to do this because she wants to actually be the first female professional to actually make a cut on the PGA Tour.
Controversy (Michelle Wie) is good for the women's tour (and the men's tour:), it keeps fans and media on their toes. Wie gives us something to talk about while Tiger is resting and rehabilitating until 2009. I heard that he is starting to ride his exercise bike in 3 daily segments... Borrrrrrringggggg... I'd rather hear more Smack-Talk about Michelle... keep it comin'!

I was going through my emails and I got my weekly Golf Channel email blast with a headline saying that Kenny Perry had pulled out of the PGA with an eye injury. (ok... so what else is going on?) As I scanned deeper into the email I find an article heading "Illness, break-up affecting Scott" - OMG!
According to the New York Times: “It’s a very difficult thing, a major lifestyle change,” Scott said about the breakup. “When you are sharing homes for seven years, it has a big effect.”
Note to Adam: Why don't you just hop into your brand new 630i BMW, bump the new Lil'Wayne album, and just chillax. Listen, I can possibly move in with you for a bit if my schedule permits.
The New York Times says that his girlfriend, Marie Kojzar (pictured above), decided to end their relationship. "There had been sporadic online rumors of the couple’s breaking up two years ago, but none accompanied the actual split in April."
I'm sure that Adam won't have a problem jumping on the single-wagon and riding the dating scene, a man like Adam should be passed around like a hot potato on a second grade camping trip, thank goodness that Marie understands this matter.
Kudos to Marie for being a good sport and setting Adam free like an exotic caged bird in the summertime.
