Monday Musings...

Another victory for Tiger Woods this past weekend, posting a 67 on Sunday at Congressional to win. That makes 68 career victories for the best there is, the best there was, and the best there ever will be. Anthony Kim, a PGA Tour shooting star of sorts, became another in a long list of players who simply was unable to match Woods while playing in the same group on the final day. The last time Woods lost a tournament that he either led or was tied for the lead after 54 holes was the 2004 Tour Championship when Retief Goosen shot 64 to Woods' 72 to win by two shots. Goosen and Woods DID NOT play in the final group together that day. In golf these days, it truly is all about "intimidation".

And how about Roger Federer at Wimbledon. Dude is amazing, on par with Woods these days as the best in the game. American Andy Roddick is now 2-19 against Federer during his career. While Federer passed Pete Samprass on the all-time majors list with his 15th major title, one has to wonder where Roddick would stand if this not for Federer. And the coolest photo of this past weekend had to be the shot of Rod Laver, Bjorn Borg, Federer and Samprass. Indeed, tennis greatness personified.

In recent weeks, hockey fans have wantingly endured the hype associated with the 2009 NHL Entry Draft and Free Agent Frenzy. Next up, the July 6 salary arbitration deadline.

Have a great week!
