Sergio Garcia Is Accurate

See, what the mainstream media would have you believe is that Sergio Garcia accidentally hit the gallery member with his drive. What I believe, tin-foil hat not included, is the guy who Garcia smashed was actually a member of Garcia’s crew and he happened to massage the feet of a member of Sergio’s harem. Instead of throwing him off a balcony and through a plate-glass greenhouse, Garcia simply hit him in the head with the golf ball and knocked him on his behind, potentially giving the hired help a concussion.

That way, he can claim it was an accident and no one is the wiser.

The Open Championship – No Threat of Tigers

Sergio Garcia

The Open Championship, AKA, the British Open is underway today and it looks like Gene Wojciechowski was right about Phil Mickelson. While it looks like Birkdale is playing incredibly tough — currently two players under par — Mickelson’s +9 puts him in the lower half of the field and in danger of missing the cut.

To wit, Mickelson, who some believe is one of the most talented golfers on the tour, is only one stroke better than everybody’s favorite Pillsbury Dough Boy, John Daly. To be fair, Mickelson has already won two events this year and is a great position to be the leader of the Fed Ex Cup standings now that Tiger has shelved it for the remainder of the year. But, his performance in the major tournaments this year has been quite disappointing. While he finished fifth in the Masters, his US Open performance was, well, lacking (for lack of a better term).

With Tiger out of the way, the idea was Phil would rise to the occasion and pick up where Woods left an opening. Unfortunately for Mickelson, his opening +9 was not the best way to say to the world, “I’m the second-best golfer on the planet.” While he may be able to correct his opening-round misfortunes, right now, he’s in a position where making the cut is questionable.

As for your leaders, currently, Adam Scott and Peter Hanson share the lead at one-under par. Behind them are names like Greg Norman, Sergio Garcia, Stuart Appleby and Retief Goosen. These four are either even par or one-over and should be considered as potential winners as the Open progresses towards Sunday’s finish.

As for Tiger, well, I’m sure he’s at home in Orlando with his repaired leg propped up, saying to himself, “Damn, I wish I was out there. Do you see the kind of opening these guys are leaving for someone like me? I’d be running away with this by now.” Or something to that affect.

Update, 12:30 CST:
Your current leaders are Rocco “No Fluke” Mediate, Graeme McDowell, and Adam Scott at one-under par. Behind them, three golfers remain at even par, including Greg Norman. Phil Mickelson is still at 9-over par (his round was complete when I first wrote the post). I’m just sayin’.
