    I think I will root for the European team from now on.  The US is soft.  Mickelson should retire. 


    Well I don't think Phil has to worry about ever playing for a Ryder Cup team again.
    I don’t think he needs to worry about the PPV hits on his stupid little match with Tiger either. I hope it flops. I sure won’t be paying to watch that crap. 

    Would have been worth watching 10 years ago.  Not now. 
    Without question. Or if they had some skin in the game, I’d still be interested today. But $10M of other people’s money doesn’t excite me in the least bit. I’ll catch the highlights on ESPN. 
    Yeah I have zero interest in watching this.  Now if it was something like JT vs Rory I would be interested.

    Really having a hard time putting my trip together for the US Open at Pebble Beach next summer... I bought my ticket package when they went on sale, but I can't get travel and accommodations figured out without breaking the bank.

    JT tweeted there is a 0% chance he’ll watch the Tiger/Phil PPV spectacle because he’ll be watching football. Priceless!

    apparently, no spectators for Phil v. eldrick. Damn. You know they would have been all over the “sex addict”

    Johnny Miller retiring.  I liked how he was critical of players.  Paul Azinger will do a good job taking over.

    I think a lot of the golf guys here couldn’t stand JM.

    me? I can’t stand TW.

    I, for one, am one of the bigger Johnny Miller haters.  As DJ lines up a 59 foot triple breaker, Miller will drop some nonsense "this is pretty simple putt, guys.  If he doesn't get this within 2 feet, it's definitely a very poor effort".  Everything is easy.

    That said, while I think the Fox US Open (and Am) coverage has gotten much better and I like it, Azinger's shtick is going to wear off in a hurry.

    I don't mind his criticisms when a guy hits a bad shot, but it just seems he has personal vendettas against certain guys (Rory for sure).  It seems to really bother him that these guys workout and stay in good shape these days.

    I don’t mind criticism either but it’s just soooo off the wall

    I can’t stand announcers that say every shot is difficult.   It may be difficult for amateurs, but not for pros.  I bet 90% of the time announcers say a shot is difficult to get close they get it close.
