Embarassment at it's Peak!

Today I set my alarm to make sure that I had my Starbucks in hand to watch "The Tiger Woods Press Conference" live streaming on TMZ in addition to simultaneous live CNN Coverage on the tube.

I thought it was clever of him to time this the way he did, Accenture got a pinch on the butt-cheeks:)

I then proceeded to work all day and listen to CNN "babble on" and "break down" the "Tiger Woods breaks his Silence Conference". It's still shockingly awkward and uncomfortable to hear the media talk about Tiger Woods and Golf. THE BEST was CNN interviewing Nick Faldo?! WTF?! Hahahaha... that is like taking AA recovery tips from a drunk! How soon we forget how Faldo's ex smashed his beloved Porche with a 7-iron... I am SOOO over this hypocritical mess that is making a mockery of my sport.

I officially feel bad for Tiger, and although he may have "deserved" to be "punished"... Having a porn star who looks like the Wendy's chick "all-grown-up" crying her eyes out talkin' bout how she wants Tiger to apologize to her when he's trying to apologize to the world? How embarrassing!!!

Your 5 minutes of fame is up. Move on ladies...

I like Dustin Johnson.

Who says Golf is getting boring? I like Dustin Johnson, I think that he's a great guy! He seems like a genuine chap. I'm happy he won, despite a seriously awkward ending...? ;p How about that hot & steamy awards presentation where Clint Eastwood and Du-Jo shared the stage;) David Duval making a comeback isn't too shabby to watch either... Nice...

A few years back, Kim Kouwabunpat and I were at the Honda Classic, we were introduced to Dustin through a mutual friend on tour. He "told it like it is", he "kept it real", if that means anything to the ol'folk. Basically, in the first few moments we were talking about sports, music, college, and local hotspots, it wasn't uptight. He didn't have his khakis in a wad;)

There was a rain delay so we got to hang out and talk golf for a bit, he was a rookie on tour at the time. We were explaining what Play Golf Designs was and told him that we were doing at a PGA Tour event, other than chillin' with bloody mary's;) Funny you should ask Dustin... Basically, at the time we thought it would be cute to advertise with the PGA Tour and waste money. Note to self: Advertise with the PGA Tour during Majors.

I liked that he selflessly asked about Women's Golf and didn't brush it off with what he was going to do on the finishing dog-leg left hole. He cared y'all.

Seeing him win again yesterday made me smile. Dustin Johnson gets a Golf Couture stamp of approval. Good to see the young guns in action, keep it up!
