Nissan Open will be great golfing theater - and it doesn’t include Tiger Woods
Don’t know if Spencer Hux will watch the Nissan Open but I’m sure most real golf fans will tune in, that is, if they can’t get there in person. SHux wrote an article last week whining about how boring golf is without Tiger Woods in the field. The other complaint was that the Tour doesn’t play great courses when Woods is AWOL. Boo hoo. What that says is that he is a Tiger fan more than a golf fan. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that.)
But, seriously, are you kidding me? Here is who will be there: every-frickin-body else! Eleven of the 13 top-ranked players in the world are entered at Riviera Country Club, which is a great old golf course nicknamed “Hogan’s Alley” for all the success that Ben Hogan had there. Good stories abound as Phil Mickelson, Vijay Singh, Ernie Els & Retief Goosen look to enhance their early good play this year in preparation for the Masters, which is now only 6 weeks away. Many of the top players like Jim Furyk, Adam Scott, Geoff Ogilvy, Sergio Garcia and Luke Donald are looking to finally show some top form. And early season surprises like John Rollins, Charley Hoffman and Jeff Quinney will be testing their mettle against the strongest field of the year so far.
I gotta believe that most golf fans will say the glass is way more than half-full this week. Enjoy!

As long as the tourney is broadcasted on HD, I probably can tolerate some boring golf.
Is Tiger Woods watching the telecast to see who his primary challengers are?
