The 19th hole

Published October 27, 2005
BIG WEEK: The Chrysler Championship is not the only big event in golf this week. Three tours have season-ending tournaments. Scotland's Colin Montgomerie will try for his eighth PGA European Tour title at the Volvo Masters. The Charles Schwab Cup is the last tournament on the Champions Tour schedule and Dana Quigley will try to win his first money title. And the Nationwide Tour Championship is all about finishing among the top 21 money winners. Those players earn exempt status for 2006 on the PGA Tour.
NOT THE CLUB'S FAULT: Tiger Woods has been gold for Nike, adding the company's new equipment to his bag as he goes, and typically having excellent success with it. But that was not the case last week at the Funai Classic, where Woods put the Nike SQ driver into his bag for the first time before going back to his old Nike driver. "The (new) driver, it does work," he said. "Unfortunately, I just didn't have the swing to make it work. I hit it great on the range, and when I make proper swings, I hit it better than my old driver. But my swing was so bad, it was just not working at all. So I went back to something that at least I felt comfortable with and had won a major championship with."
STAT OF THE WEEK
Tiger Woods had a triple-bogey during the second round of the Funai Classic. It was his first in 3,116 holes on the PGA Tour dating to the 2003 British Open.
"I don't like to practice, I don't like to work out. There are a lot of things that I should be doing that I don't like to do. I was blessed with a God-given talent to play golf, is all I can say."
