Tiger Great (again). Nostradamus Strikes (again).

You may have noticed that Tiger Woods won again (ho hum). Same old, same old. The greatest golfer on the planet lurks in the weeds, let's the rookies self-destruct and wins his 55th tournament and 7th in a row. Based on what I saw on CBS, he didn't even work up a sweat.

What was absent, again, was Phil and V.J. and the rest of the crew. As I said just a week ago with my Nostradamus-like predictions, Phil Mickelson "melts like overheated plastic in a microwave". It seems that the same can apply to V.J. when Tiger is in a tournament.

The perceived "leaders" fold like origami. Yes, they win tournament and yes, they make a lot of money, but when it comes to head-to-head competition with Tiger, they avoid it like the plague. If you think Tiger's year was good in 2006, just wait until 2007 is over. He's got that swagger again and makes winning tournaments look easier than turning over in bed.

Just a footnote related to my last two blog posts, David Duval (T45) finished AHEAD of Phil Mickelson (T51) in another tournament (again). Now, that's two in a row. In the hotly contested FedEx Cup, Duval is ranked 97th and Mickelson at 106th.

Was golf's Nostradamus right or what? We really want to love Duval instead of Mickelson. If he keeps this up, our romance is sure to blossom.
