It’s been nearly a month since Elin teed up Tiger.
So when my edition of Golf World arrived this week, I was eager to see what fresh new insight golf’s newsweekly would add to the story.
The magazine has been MIA since the Escalade episode because, under normal circumstances, the sport doesn’t make headlines this time of year and they don’t publish weekly.
I thought they might put out a special edition, but no. Still, the cover whetted my appetite for reporting and analysis that I hadn’t seen over and over since Tiger’s Thanksgiving dinner went down the disposal.
What I got was a 3-page rehash, a back page column, and a brief commentary calling on other players to fill the void.
To make matters worse, I checked the web site. It’s all there. For free.
The magazine did have 14 pages featuring new equipment for 2010 I won’t buy. Two of the pages were dedicated to shafts.
Which I think I got.
