by Jeff Skinner OK Peter King…Here’s 10 things I think…and more. 1.  One tournament does not a rivalry make. But with all we know of Rory and Tiger no one can blame us for thinking that this could be the rivalry for years  to come. 2.  Did I see Tiger implementing a new fist pump yesterday?  He was using a more downward fist pump like Rory uses instead of his traditional uppercut.  Maybe that was part of new swing change.… Continue Reading
