More 16th at FBR
Gary McCord tells the Golf Channel the reason CBS stuck him to cover the 16th is "all the idiots" are there. Apparently there are more than 150,000 people at the tournament, an incredible number. Mickelson looks like a lock at this one -- I doubt Kevin Na can make enough birdies to catch Phil.
In other golf news, Ernie Els came up short at the remarkable Royal Melbourne, clearly one of the most interesting golf courses in the world. Craig Parry took the title. With all the hoopla about the 16th at the TPC at Scottsdale, few actually consider the Golf Channel has shown a tournament on a truly great golf course. Rarely do tournaments get played on courses as good as Royal Melbourne, one of the Top 10 in the world. You're not going to see anything on Cypress or Pine Valley, but you can see Melbourne. Take advantage of it.
