To be honest, I really didn't think much about golf or the blog today. It has just a nose to the grindstone day.
So when I finally do get home and futzing around on the internet, I realized that I haven't even looked at the field for next week's Tour Championship. To be honest, there were a few surprises.
The second is Kevin Na. Na, a South Korean born American, is ranked #20 going into the final stage of the FedEx Cup. He has not won a tournament all year. In fact, he has never won a PGA Tour event. But what Kevin Na has done is become one of the most consistent players on tour. He has made the cut in 88% of his events this year, and finished in the top ten 4 times. He is 13th on the Tour in scoring average and 13th in putting average. Not the flashiest of players, Na knows how to get the job done without entering the winners circle.
The Cup format continues to surprise even some of the most loyal golf fans. I for one, love it. I dont know how anyone could dislike having the best players in the game play week after week. The tournaments are held on great courses. And I really like the dwindling field, no cut events. Even if Tiger, Vijay and Rory are out, so what? We've now got three new guys to cheer for.
