Maybe it's just me, B-Tuck, but I'm guessing those 50-60 guys battling for their 2008 playing priviledges/status would take issue with your "silly season" claim.

I'm at a loss to understand your contempt for Mike Weir. Has he let you down in some personal way in the past? Frys Open may have had a diluted field, but he did compete, and actually beat, the world's best under overwhelming pressure. Give the man a break - try praising someone (ANYONE)for a change, pls.

TIGER vs. ROGER - Golf and tennis have 4 majors every year. Tiger won his first major in 1997. From 1997-2007 Tiger has won 13 out of 44 majors. A wining percentage of 29.54% and Tiger is age 31. Roger won his first major in 2003. From 2003-2007 Roger won 12 out of 20 majors. A wining percentage of 60% and Roger is age 26. Looking at these stats who would you bet on to win more majors in 2008? In 2007 Roger Federer won WIMBLEDON for the 5the consecutive year in a row! And you golfer thought Tiger was dominant on grass? Any questions on who is the more dominant athlete?

Left out of those stats, however, is the fact that golf does not lend itself to dominance, whereas tennis does. That's like comparing Jim Brown to Ted Williams. Makes no sense to compare different sports, not now, not ever.

I'm on the Shanks Train, in the Engine, baby! Silly Season is unofficial events, and these are anything but unofficial. Mark Hensby just grabbed his card with a second-place finish. David Branshaw was poised to move way up after a top 15 at Turning Stone and the third-round lead in Mississippi. He had a crummy fourth round, missed the cut the next two weeks, and now has little hope of retaining his card through money-list placement. Silly Season my frontal lobe!!!!
