Morfit Draws Short Straw...Forced To Take Asterisk Side
Poor Cameron Morfit…He drew the short straw over at SI/Golf.Com. Van Sickle, Hack, Phillips, Feherty and the rest got the last laugh and Morfit had to defend the application of an asterisk to the 2008 Open Championship. Here’s clarification for one and all:
Tiger is a threat only when he is in contention. We’ve had a few major championships where he has been nowhere fast. What if he had played like ever-loving crap at Torrey Pines on the bad limb? Would we have placed an asterisk next to Rocco or Lee? Of course not.
What if Tiger had continued to hide the injuries and finished t-64 at Birkdale? Would we have clamored for an asterisk? Of course not.
Do we rewrite history and deny Sean Micheel, Phil Mickelson, Mike Weir, Geoff Ogilvy and a host of others their major victories simply because Tiger wasn’t in contention? Of course not.
Lest we forget, in 2002, Kitty Kat Kame to The Open with the first two legs of the grand slam in his closet, then fired 70-68-81-65 to finish T-28. Does Els’ Open not count because Tiger shot 80 for the only time in a major? Of course not. Tiger shot 80, Tiger not in, seems like the Tiger snobs are the ones who protest too much, Mr. Morfit.
