Let's not forget American team dunce Woody Austin's three-birdie finish at the President's Cup
I like a good sports blooper as much as the next guy.
But while we all pile on the American Team’s dunce, let’s not forget the true character in Austin, who shook off hilarious heckles of “Marco! Polo!” from Canadian fans to finish with three birdies and halve his match Friday versus the Internationals.
Austin is known for snapping his putter from excessive head-butting and ill-advised Tiger Woods comments But his clutch, three-birdie performance in his first ever Ryder Cup or Presidents Cup is the real story in Montreal, not his collapse into a pond. It was Woody - not Tiger - scoring points for the American squad Friday.
Loudmouthed choker Rory Sabbatini could learn a thing or two from Austin…
Of course, if I was in the gallery tomorrow I’d follow him around with snorkel gear on for a few holes…or maybe my buddies and I would hold up 9.0, 9.5, 8.5 cards after he hits shots…or if it wasn’t so cold we’d show up in Speedos…I could go on all night.
