PLAYERS: Tiger Woods
Just when you thought the Tiger Woods-Sergio Garcia Players Championship drama had reached its apex, another twist is keeping Swing-gate in the news. On Monday, Sports Illustrated talked to two marshals who essentially called Woods a liar for asserting that he had been given the OK to pull from his bag Saturday on the second hole of the third round.

Wussification of sports complete

I'll admit it. For the past couple of years, I didn't get it when fans complained about the wussification of sports. I thought the complaints were overblown, a product of social media immaturity, a lack of sophistication and intellectual evolution. I was wrong. We've gone too far with the wussification of sports. I realized it this past weekend when the sports world...
