Think about it, if you have five of the top golfers in the world in a tournament and one of them is Tiger Woods, chances are better than 50/50 that you’d pick Tiger to win. If you had five of the world’s top golfers in the field and Tiger wasn’t one of them but Phil was, would you necessarily give Phil the same odds of winning as you previously gave Tiger?
Yesterday’s announcement that Anthony Kim has signed on to play the Canadian Open really is exciting news. He is the one golfer outside of Tiger that everyone wants to see right now. This is a win-win situation. If he does well at the British Open next week, everyone will flock to see this new phenom continue his run. If he doesn’t fair well it doesn’t matter. it merely means that he hasn’t adjusted to links golf and everyone will be anxious to see him tackle another parklands course. perhaps the shine is beginning to return to the Canadian Open.
