The new golf season has started this week. With sponsors threatening with drop tournanments the Tour decided to start now so that these tournanments will have Fed-Ex points added to them. Almost all of the big name players are down til January. Tiger won't be back til Torrey Pines and Phil is playing a couple in Asia before. It's kinda strange.
When you look at the stats on putting, hitting, and scrambling the US has almost all of the top guns. But the International's have been trying to keep the games tight and interesting with some hard playing.
