Yang in The PGA
Cink in The Open Championship
Cabrera in The Masters
Glover in The US Open
Seems this year was a breakout year for players we didn't think (not intuitively) would be this years Major winners. Now 2009 has passed and we are seeing some things that maybe were not in the conciousness. Things like Els and Goosen being lesser factors with each passing year. Davis, Kenny, and Freddie are pretty much looking towards the Champions Tour. Anthony Kim, where are you? Some are shocked that Tiger didn't win Sunday, and others are not shocked that Phil really had a poor outing, regardless of sentimental feelings.
So looking back at this point in time, prior to the FedEx hyperbole and the President's Cup exhibition, whta are your thoughts about 2009? Happy? Surprised? Good for the game? Don't care?
I for one loved seeing Tiger go down on Sunday. Yang hit the shots under pressure and in the clutch. He was Tigere, and Tiger was mortal. I hated seeing Tom Watson's putter leave him on the next to the last shot, just as Kenny Perry gagged on his chip in S.D. And Glover? Nice guy, but he's pretty vanilla, and will be invisible like several other one hit wonders.
