HOLIDAY SHOOT OUT VIJAY VS. TIGER THE BATTLE OF MASTERS CHAMPS

IT’S WAR BLOODY WAR MONDAY

It’s a Shame it doesn’t happen

more often but it will

Happen Labor Day

The world’s 2 Best Black Golfers will slug it out for a ‘major’ PGA Tour event Monday. A Holiday for all are readers in the USA. And you are Blessed ABC is carrying the Final Round you can watch ALL the action at the Deutsche Bank Classic. It’s Tiger’s own personal major charity event each year on the Tour.

He LOVES to win it of course

and win his 5th event in a row but

TIGER’S GOT ONE BIG PROBLEM

Vijay Singh is on on FIRE. Stealing the lead from Tiger in the 3rd Round with the Best round ever played by anyone ever at the Norton, Massachusetts course where the Tourny is being held. Even more Sunday’s round of 61 for Vijay was the Best of his entire PGA career. He was 10 under TEN under for the day pretty much leaving Tiger in the Dust. Poor Tiger hats the Dust !

Vijay is all Alone Atop

the Leader Board

3 ahead of Tiger

Tiger shot a pedestrian 67 Sunday to Singh’s 61. If you had looked at the Leaderboard after Saturday’s 2nd round Vijay was hopelessly out of it with his 2 day total putting him just 1 under par. After Saturday Woods was tied for 3rd assuming he would take the Lead on Sunday. Poor Vijay was tied for 17th.

No more

Now Tiger and Justin Rose both tied for 2nd with their -8s to Vijay’s -11. Tiger and Vijay should be paired for the Final Round. It is quite possible these two have NEVER been paired together for a Final Round in a PGA event.

One interested sidelight

you will ONLY learn

in the Box

TIGER’S SECRET WEAPON

Which may fail him Monday. It has NEVER been noted anywhere previously. But one reason Tiger almost always wins in the End. Is the Intimidation Factor. Woods when he is likely to win is in the final pairing on the final day. Very often the other player he is playing ‘with’ who has the best chance to win it all falls apart in the face of the massive fan support for Tiger that Tiger’s main opponent much endure for 18 holes. It intimidates and unnerves most Pros often Pros who rarely if ever win and Tiger rolls right over them. Not so with Vijay Singh.

Vijay surely could still lose to Tiger Monday even with his 3 stroke advantage. But it will not be because Singh gets rattled by all the Tiger supporters who will line the course. Vijay is in a different League than most of the Pros Tiger gets paired with in the Final Round. He’s no Scardy Cat on the Course. He is COOL.

Vijay’s bigger problem is his lack of consistency the last 2 seasons after his Championship Season in which he became the first pro to win over $10Million in tournament earnings, and leaving Tiger in the Dust Yes that Dust Tiger HATES. Vijay being named Golfer of the Year in 2004. But it’s been downhill since. Woods has reclaimed the world’s #1 position and today Vijay is ranked far back.

None of that matters
