Golfer Supremacy Rankings move to BadGolfer.com and sees that Tiger, Michelle Wie make ignoring events easy
If there’s one thing I’ve learned about certain golf Web sites, it’s this - they’ll accept any type of content whatsoever. Really, anything.
Take BadGolfer.com. Now, while it’s a site that will offer you great, exclusive interviews with guys like Charles Barkley and Rush Limbaugh, they’ll also take just about anything written in English. Like the Golfer Supremacy Rankings.
Yes, the GSRs, who used to have their home right here at this humble blog, are now a weekly feature at BadGolfer.com.
So head over there and take a look and find out why the Golfer Supremacy Rankings team learned a couple important truths this week. One, Tiger Woods skipping The Barclays means the Fedex Cup is a joke; and Two, Michelle Wie not skipping the Samsung World Championship means that the LPGA better start looking for another “fifth major.”
All that and more, including juggling, tap dancing, a bowl full of Snedekers, and the latest golf news in this week’s edition of the Golfer Supremacy Rankings, which you can now find on the front page of BadGolfer.com, or by clicking right here.

The issue of Bubbles and the Samsung was kicked around on one of Dot's blogs.
It was noted that the Samsung committee had awarded Bubbles an exemption two weeks before she had ever played a single hole in a 2007 LPGA tournament, and more than four months after she had played her last round of competitive golf, her missed cut at the Sony.
What motivation could that committee have possibly had to contemplate such a blunder?
They would probably like to take back her invitation, but don't know how.
If Bubbles doesn't graciously withdraw from the Samsung, she and her family and entourage will prove that they have more nerve than the guy who ate the first oyster.
One can only imagine the amount of seething contempt and scorn that will emanate from the other, more deserving females in the 20-player field.
But Tiger and the FedEx - is he really treating the FedEx any differently than any other PGA tourney? The FedEx was created solely to drive participation from the greats of the game in the post-major season. It has, and will, do that. He is taking a week off before playing to make sure he is rested. That isn't any different than how he approaches other non-majors.
If this cup gets him to two of four of these "playoff" events, that's probably at least one more than he would have attended had the cup not been in place. So let time tell before we bash the FedEx cup.
Imagine if he won too early, then everyone would be complaining about how anti-climactic the FC was.
