The Players

The Players Championship begins today and will be broadcast live on the USA Network beginning at noon eastern time. This is one of maybe five non-major tournaments worth watching and the field is, as always, incredibly strong. I placed my "pool" bets last night and am reasonably happy with the official Ellisblog team: Els, Goosen (a second round pick!), Furyk, Kelly and Howell.

Tiger was taken off the boards because.....because he's Tiger Woods. This is the third straight year our little golf group has decided we can't run a pool with Tiger in it. Which is one minor measure of his dominance.
