"I'm an unashamed Tiger fan. I miss him. I miss him as a player and the person he was, said David Feherty on Morning Drive.

Ryan Ballengee covers the story and writes, “David Feherty believes the public squabbling among Tiger Woods' current and former instructors about the world No. 8 has affected him to the detriment of the sport…"This latest round of Tiger bashing has left him even more remote and distant from the rest of us,"

David’s not a fan of Hank Haney’s literary expose of Tiger and said, "The fact that Hank wrote the book - I wouldn't have written the book. I just don't think it has any class to it at all."

The lass with class and a degree from Stanford captures the attention of Randall Mell.
“Leadbetter says Wie needs to 're-prove herself’.”
“She’s very frustrated with the way she’s putting,” Leadbetter said. “I watched her shoot a 73 in the first round of Kraft Nabisco without making a putt longer than 2 feet.”
Wie’s woeful stats read, “128th in putting this season, but she also has slumped to 115th in greens in regulation, 44th in driving distance and 137th in driving accuracy.”

Geoff Shackelford casts a critical eye over the R&A media day transcripts which included Peter Dawson’s suggestion that Auntie Beeb may lose coverage of the Open if they don’t provide better coverage.

In regards to the prevalent problem of course-lengthening Geoff and some of his followers believe that in years to come Dawson’s remarks will come to bite him on the bum. And in particular, “I think we're coming to the end now of the course adjustment programme that we started ten years ago.” – “Yeah right!” as they say in Kiwiland.

And then there’s this, "it’ll never happen" on the subject of long-putters.
“The subject is being looked at more from a rules of golf and method of stroke angle than it is from a length of club angle, and the reason for that is that if you thought you were going to do something about long putters by saying the putter may be no more than 40 inches long, that would still allow short people perhaps to belly putt but not tall people.”

As for the matter of slow play. Jim McArthur of the championship department made an interesting comment,  “Interestingly enough, I think when Bobby Locke won his Open Championship here at Royal Lytham he was reprimanded for slow play, and he took three and a half hours.”
