Tiger's Bromance

When the going gets tough, the bros get going.

Tiger Woods may now be linked to 10 women. While most of them came forward on their own for their 15 minutes of shame, I mean fame, Tiger still has an alliance of solid bromances that will stick with him no matter what.

Take Byron Bell for example. He is Tiger's childhood friend who allegedly paid for Rachel Uchitel's plane fare to Australia and booked her in the same hotel as Tigers, for what? A little rendezvous with his buddy Tiger?


And today, Tiger Woods' caddy Steve Williams released a statement in New Zealand as reported by the NZ Herald:
"I do not have any personal knowledge of anything in the reports related to the Tiger Woods' stories. Kristy and I give our heartfelt wishes to Tiger, Elin, Sam and Charlie and hope this gets put to rest soon."
Really? Of all people, you would think that Stevie would now something right? But I actually applaud Steve for staying out of this whole fiasco... kudos to you Mr. Williams! As for Mr. Bell... if the allegations were true, then shame on you.

Jim Furyk Wins Chevron World Challenge


A lot of people are waiting for this moment. Jim Furyk had been in a funk since after his last tournament win in 2007. Winning the Chevrom World Challenge in Thousand Oaks, CA is truly special not just for him but for fans like me. I've always rooted for Jim to win in almost every event and finally today, on a lazy Sunday afternoon, he did... one more time in his 30s. Furyk is 39 years old and will be turning 40 in May next year.


Adam Scott Wins the 2009 Australian Open

Over a year ago, many felt that Adam Scott epitomized everything young and new in the world of Golf. Ranking #3 in the world in 2008, it seemed like nothing can stop this young lad from conquering... But something did. His world ranking dropped over 50 spots this year and everyone had different reasons and opinion why 2009 had been a very bad year for Scott from too much partying to over-confidence. With only one top ten finish in 2009, nobody expected this Australian native to win the 2009 Australian Open in South Wales Golf Club but he did. What's even more surprising is him winning by 5 solid strokes over runner up Stuart Appleby.

Adam Scott was quoted saying to Golf.com:
"It's so bizarre, this game, that off the back of such a bad year I finally played good enough to win down here. This is very, very special to me to win here. This is going to be very sweet and something I will treasure for the rest of my career."
Greg Norman, who made the controversial decision to pick Adam Scott to play for the 2009 Presidents Cup International Team presented him with the Australian Open trophy.

Is this Australian Open Win a fluke or is this the return of THE Adam Scott? This remains to be seen in 2010.
