THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. Lee Westwood has spent the past month as the new No.1 golfer in the world, Jim Furyk was voted the PGA Tours Player of the Year, but Graeme McDowell has more claim than anyone to having had the most noteworthy season of all. He won the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach, the first European in 40 years to do so, and was a Ryder Cup hero. That trumps three victories and the FedEx Cup crown, no matter how many million comes with ti.

Today will be interesting. Tiger was never really under as much pressure to win as everyone else, because he won so much. Now, he is trying to avoid a shutout for the year. This may make him feel more nervous than a major championship.
Just don’t care. Who would be interested in this lying POS who posed as the happy family man to sell us a bunch of crap? From Buicks to Nike, none of it is actually important. This is an off-season tournament, anyway.
...and speaking of "shots of the day" - what about Bubba's double eagle hole out from 283 yards on Friday?
Amen, to what he said! bttt.
Concur. Cheeta Woods holds no interest for me.
Personal foibles aside, it will be interesting to see if he can ever dominate again.
Note who Rogers tried to leave in the rough ... Lefty blew three golden opportunities to take over No. 1 ... but his Masters smoking was the Win of the Year and probably his peak lifetime acheivement ... and the juxtaposition of Tiger stalking off to his limo while Phil was swept up by his family was the Visual of the Year ...
Sounds eeriely like something Tom Weiskopf would say.
Here's Danny Wax on 14: Eagle!
Billy Mayfair in Q School ... yikes. 6 years short of the Senior tour.
Lot’s of veterans fighting for life... Scott McCarron, Lee Janzen, Omar Uresti, Carlos Franco, Brant Jobe, Paul Stankowski, Briny Baird
Interesting. Didn’t realise Westwood had managed to pass him, finally.
I was rooting for Kaymer. If Kaymer passes him, that will be a true changing of the guard, as Kaymer is younger than Woods. This isn’t even close to being the longest that he’s been out of the number one ranking, he was number 2 for 32 weeks behind Vijay Singh.
That being said, Tiger is still a year ahead of Nicklaus. Nicklaus had 14, to match Tiger when he was 35. Woods would have to lose another 4 major tournaments. Nicklaus also didn’t win number 15 until he was 38.
The records are pretty much his.
He's not putting well today and he's never lost a 56 hole lead when leading 3 or better.
This should be good.
The coverage is just pathetic. Talking about Tiger's this and that, kids programs, swings,etc.
Oh wait, there's Jim Furyk for five seconds. He was voted Player of the Year just last week.
Dotty Pepper whispering about Tiger's tight shoulders (careful, Dottie) while he putts.
Three par-5s on the back nine at Sherwood so maybe things will heat up.
Par-5 13th is a pitching and putting problem for Tiger, scoring 7. McDowell birdies and the three-stroke swing now has McDowell up by two with five to play.
Ill check back later tonight. Looks like many are watching football today, lol.
And, he choked. Tiger back? Not so much.
That was an amazing finish. G Mc was strong to the end and committed to every shot. That drop on 17 was gutsy to say the least.
He’s got a goofy swing, but he’s definitely a competitor. Reminds me of Furyk that way.
Tiger finished the season without a win his first since he joined the PGA back in 1996.
Back?........ Well he’s good but back to his dominance of the past I’m not sure...........
THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. - U.S. Open champion Graeme McDowell capped off his greatest year by putting together the greatest comeback ever against Tiger Woods in the Chevron World Challenge.
Woods looked as though he would recover from losing a four-shot lead Sunday when he stuffed his approach to inside 3 feet on the 18th hole, but McDowell knocked in a 20-foot birdie putt that forced a playoff.
On the first extra hole, McDowell again made a birdie putt from 20 feet. This time, Woods couldn’t match him. His 15-foot birdie putt slid by on the right, and Woods ended a calendar year without winning.
Better head off to see his Canadian doctor again; the new batch of roids are not working
This event was meaningless since it wasn’t a Championship event.
I think he’s grown a resistance to the latest batch of roids.
You sure about that?
