Here's Your May 16th Pin Sheet:
Other marshals speak out on Woods/Garcia incident: On Tuesday, North clarified his version of the story in an interview with GolfChannel.com. “I didn’t want to impugn the character of Tiger Woods or the Sports Illustrated writer,” said North, a pilot with FedEx who has marshaled at The Players for 30 years. “I was just answering a hypothetical question.”
Rex Hoggard is hoping this is the end of the saga: "If this doesn’t clear up at least this portion of the controversy for the conspiracy theorist then nothing will. Although the timing is suspect, Woods heard the marshal say Garcia had already played. We’ve learned from this ugly episode that, in this case, it seems it is the marshals who needed a “Quiet, please” sign; and that the smallest amount of contrition could have gone a long way."
Mark Cannizzaro of the Post chimes in on Tiger: "The problem for Woods is that, post scandal, it is difficult to trust him because of how badly he duped not only his then-wife, but the world. So when incidents like what occurred Saturday occur, there is more scrutiny than before."
Sigh. Rocco Mediate tells of asking Tiger for an autograph: "When Mediate returned to the locker room later that day, he found that Woods had returned the materials, but had not signed the pin sheet and had simply signed his name with no inscription to the picture of the two combatants. According to Mediate, he threw them in the trash."

Luke Donald finally receives his cow from Japan victory: "The tournament is in Miyazaki, which has a breed of cattle with the same qualities as the ones found in Kobe, and the meat is similarly heralded. The cows get names, are rumored to drink beer and get massaged with sake, and have a high amount of fat that is prized by those who can afford to eventually eat it."
