This week's radio segments (The Sports Reporters)

Wednesday I joined The Sports Reporters in the Wednesday 5:30 time slot. Click the permalink, then the link below, to listen to the segment from this week. Virtually the entire segment this week was spent discussing Tiger Woods (injury, pursuit of records, what he may do the rest of the year, etc) and next week's US Open, including the set-up of the course at Congressional and whether or not Tiger's tournament returns in future years after this two year hiatus.

Since this is on a radio post...any inside info on Kornheiser and his radio show? Is that it? I know they say money is the issue, but 6 weeks off that he doesn't want? Sounds like the end of another Tony K era to me...

Hi John, can you please set the record straight regarding the cat visitation story during your days at The National? Turns out the subject is rather prominent in the new Grantland article linked below:

I heard the Segment on the radio. Good stuff. I just worry for you that your objectivity sometimes gets lost in the Anti-Tiger vitriol. From a fan's perspective, I don't care if he is mean to the press or beats his dog. I just want to watch him play golf.

In terms of his injuries, I think the best analogy I have heard yet is Mickey Mantle. Unlimited potential and a career cut short by injury.

Is there an opportunity for Tiger to move the AT&T over to Avenel? That would seem to be a logical location for the future of his tournament.

John-

I fully expect the Golf Channel to be focused on Woods not competing this week at the obvious expense of many of the great players who will be teeing it up at the US Open. When you look at the state of the game today, it's sad that so much of the media hype is centered around a guy that has never truly respected the game even when he was dominating the tour. With so many good stories out there on tour for the media to cover, as you have personally demonstrated, do we really have to be subjected to hours of speculation about the future of a guy you would not want to even have a beer with? The story this week should be about Ken Venturi winning the 64 Open in brutal heat and humidity. I hope they can squeeze in a few clips of that one in between all of the hand wringing for Tiger.
