Had a lovely weekend watching both UConn teams win, as well as ‘Nova, MSU and Carolina.
But with all due respect to the “ballers,” as the kids call ’em, the best baller I saw patrolled the fairways and greens of Arnold Palmer’s place, Bay Hill in Orlando.
There is no one to compare with Tiger Woods in any other sport. No one. The PGA Tour is dependent on this one man to deliver decent television ratings. And as unlucky as NBC was a few weeks ago when Tiger didn’t make it to weekend coverage of the match play tournament, the Peacock got incredibly lucky Sunday when Tiger won Arnie’s tournament.
On the last hole. With a longish putt. Just as he did last year.
It is a treat to watch a performer at the peak of his talent. A performer who will go down as the greatest. Ever. Until the next one comes along.
But don’t hold your breath waiting.
