Here's your May 7th Pin Sheet: The application for Masters tickets is up on the website. Fred Couples, Ken Venturi and Montie among Hall of Fame inductees. Neat story about Fred Couples turning pro:  "In one of his classic Freddie stories, Couples delighted media telling how this all came about because he got bored visiting those family friends and asked if there was a local course he could play. They dropped him off at El Dorado, but the course was closed for the Queen Mary Open. Couples said he was invited by a guy he met in the pro shop (Larry Benson) to play with his group. There was a hitch, though. Couples had to turn pro to do so." I bet you can't guess Montie's proudest moment:  “I suppose raising the Ryder Cup as captain in 2010, to regain the Ryder Cup from the victory that the States had in 2008, to raise the Ryder Cup was a very proud moment,” Montgomerie said. “It's funny, because I never hit a golf shot, and you've asked me what the proudest moment of my career is. I suppose hitting golf shots got me to that stage, but without hitting a golf shot, raising the Ryder Cup, I suppose it has to be.” Tony Jacklin says Montie is unworthy of Hall:  “He won’t be remembered for the Ryder Cup when he’s dead and buried,” Jacklin said, according to the report. “It will just be something that happened in a Ryder Cup. I understand he has a fantastic record and is a great player, but he should have won majors.” Bob Harig wonders if the bar is being lowered:  "And at the present rate, the Hall is not going to have anyone left to induct, certainly when it continues to put large groups in at the same time. Either that, or the players who are giving speeches at the ceremony will have résumés so thin as to make the Hall a joke." Trump to open Dubai course. David Lynn chooses vacation over the US Open. Tiger and Lindsay walk the red carpet together.  The problem?  The missed the bit about the "punk" theme. Speaking of Tiger...this week will be his 300th start.
