Golfer Supremacy Rankings: Tadd shows Wie that doing is better than dreaming
Walking around the vast Golfer Supremacy Rankings Complex, one can really come to grips with one’s thoughts and aspirations. And while we here at the GSRs have made it clear that all we care about is producing great golf rankings, we realize that others have goals as well.
One thing we’ve learned this week, however: Talking about your dreams is wonderful, especially if you have a trillion-dollar corporation to help you get your message across. Actually doing something about your dreams is quite a bit more difficult.
Which is why, right about now, we are all about young Tadd Fujikawa.
Golfer Supremacy Rankings
1. Tadd Fujikawa
Comments: He has no big endorsement. He has no big-named coach. Hell, at 5-foot-1, he has no big anything, except game and heart. By becoming the only thing worth talking about at the Sony Open, Fujikawa continued to show what a phenom is all about. Last year, he qualified for the U.S. Open, this year, he puts his name on the leaderboard of a PGA event. Basically, he’s everything Michelle Wie wants to be, sans short skirts. Plus, he’s so adorable you just want to stab your eyes out.
2. Paul Goydos
Comments: Before the FedEx Cup, you’d never hear a peep about Paul Goydos. With the FedEx Cup, he’s all we talk about. Just two weeks into the new playoff set-up, or, as critics call it ‘"The Paul Goydos Cup,” Goydos has zoomed up the charts and at this stage must be looked at as a serious contender to win the FedEx Cup and whatever that entails. Yes, Paul Goydos, who last won when Phil Mickelson was a non-threatening C-cup, is now holding all the cards as far as the FedEx Cup. The sound you hear is Tiger Woods trembling. Trembling over the thought of Paul Goydos.
3. Michelle Wie
Comments: At just 17, Wie continues to look back at 13 and think “those were the days,” as she now stands proudly as the No. 3 teen Asian-American golfer mentioned in this blog, behind Kimberly Kim and Fujikawa. Having Nike on her side, however, means Wie will still get about 500 times the press of her competitors, however.
Random Factoid: Argentinian Ariel Canete won the Joburg Open, giving himself a two-year excemption on the European Tour. Canete’s victory is yet more proof that many Argentinians can do much more impressive things than mug the Bush Twins.

On the other hand, why don't they give the trophy to M. Wie. It should give them a bit of Nikexposure.
Next column, please write about "The Big Three"... Wie, The Fed Ex Cup and The Win Zone....
O.K., I'll write for you...
Sick of all three and it is only January...
God Bless Tad, only sorry he didn't get the television time Michelle would have if she had made the cut. If she had, and come close to making the top 20 like Tadd, the Golf Channel would have gone commerical free for 4 hours, even following her to the line at the port-a-john.
Sadly, I tuned in yesterday to watch him, and got Learner interviewing some guy named LaBelle. Note and reminder, please pass it along to get MW back to her teacher she worked with before Leadbetter screwed he up... And God Bless Nike too for fueling the fire!
The Fed Ex Cup...Like a booming voice coming down from Heaven across the valley...THE FED EX CUP. Tired of hearing about it already... Obviously Tiger and Phil figure they will make enough playing part time to win it.... Sick of it already...
Finally, the ultimate air time waste... The Win Zone. Who gives a damn what crap some computer geek has come up with to show you who might win... Like giving you the run down before and DURING the actual running of the Kentucky Derby, there is no sense to run the race... Imagine, they are at the quarter mile and the race is stopped, while they show you who runs the next 1/4 mile the best and how the positions will change...
I'm glad for split screen and the mute button when they start all this crap...
Which do I vote for to never have to hear about again this year, and it only January?
Can of worms is now open...
Again, God Bless You Tadd!!!
