Tiger Wins and Phil Hangs On

“Hooks and Slices” will bring you our view on whats happening in the golf world.

Yesterday’s first round of the WGC Match Play saw Tiger play well enough to advance, but some rust kept him from closing out Brendon Jones earlier. Number one seeds Padraig Harrington and Sergio Garcia failed to advance. Harrington has struggled all season and Sergio bogeyed the last three holes to choke it away. Here are our predictions for the second round.

Phil “The Thrill” Mickelson will beat “Praise the Lord” Zach Johnson and Phil won’t see a fairway all day. He does it with magic, I swear.

The New and Improved Lee Westwood will knock off Bald is Beautiful Cink.

Davis Love III continues his resurgence, but he has to knock off his good buddy Justin Leonard.

AK shows no signs of jet lag and out plays Oliver Wilson. Is he that guy that was hanging with Kate Hudson before Adam Scott had her on the beach?

The ever consistent Geoff Ogilvy knocks Shingo’s hat off.

The Coolest Guy in Golf, Miguel Angel Jimenez, shows Spiderman what real cool is. Camilo can watch and learn this time.

Stephen Ames, from Trinidad & Tobago via Canada, sends Hanson, Peter, not the boy band, home early.

Paul Casey looks too relaxed to lose. So it’s goodbye to Matthew Goggin, Who?

Luke Donald catches Vijay while he is still rehabilitating. It takes longer to heal when we get older Vijay.

Ernie Els finally made it past the first round. It’s too bad Steve Stricker will end his run.

Hot as heck Pat Perez keeps it going against Ross Fisher.

Jim Furyk takes his loopy swing and beats Martin Kaymer with it.

Tiger shakes off some more rust and out lasts Tim Clark in extra holes. Clark has enough game to push Tiger, but heck, this is Tiger Woods.

The Celtic Tiger, Rory McIlroy, keeps living the dream and knocks out Ryder Cupper Hunter Mahan, setting up a battle of Tigers.

The very dapper, Ian Poulter out duels the not so dapper Charl Schwartzel.

Boo Weekly rides the bull all over Sean O’Hair. Can somebody give O’Hair a cheeseburger, please?
