Guess What? It ain’t happening..at least not this year. Sorry to get your hopes up. With TW still recovering from surgery, it was a given that he was not going to be teeing it up this week at Torrey Pines. Unfortunately, the second half of the 2008 U.S. Open saga withdrew from the Buick Invitational today. I couldn’t find any official reason, but Rocco is getting old, so it’s probably a health issue of some kind.
On the positive side…Mr. Mickelson will be playing (and I use that term loosely) at Torrey this week. Rumor has it he’s planning on playing without a putter at least the first 2 days, but he will be carrying 2 drivers, so we’ll see what happens.
