Tracking Tiger's jet and Masters plans, and ANWA with ESPN’S Kevin Van Valkenburg
SGS is graced by the presence of ESPN Senior Writer Kevin Van Valkenburg for this Wednesday episode, which begins with the hysteria around flight tracking Tiger Woods’ plane into Augusta. Brendan and Kevin begin by assessing the likelihood we see Tiger play the Masters, how good or bad that might go if he does, and the current contrast in standing between Tiger and Phil Mickelson. The exile of Phil is also discussed with KVV, along with a few other pre-Masters storylines. Then it’s on to the first major of the year, the newly named Chevron Championship, nee ANA or Dinah Shore. They discuss the abandonment of that event’s history with the upcoming move to Texas. The third Augusta National Women’s Amateur is also previewed, with some format quibbles raised and players to monitor. The Valero is also noted before a fun sign-off with KVV recalling an excerpt on Lee Westwood discussing his favorite book.
