Here's Your March 27th Pin Sheet: ESPN.com's expert picks for the Shell Houston Open. PGATOUR.com's expert picks for the Shell Houston Open. Golf Channel's Will Gray's Fact Pack. GolfWeek's Fantasy Tip Sheet. In a development that should surprise no one, the team named after New York's capital wins the Tavistock Cup.  You're welcome, Team Albany.  #Excelsior. If you haven't seen it yet, here's the extended version of the Tiger-Arnie ass-kicking (with Lee Trevino cameo): ESPN.com's Farrell Evans on Rory's quest to regain #1, two long days since he lost the top spot:  "McIlroy always said that he wanted to compete against Tiger at his best. He's only seen on TV the player who was practically invincible, winning four consecutive major championships in the early 2000s. Now he may be able to see something of the legend in person, and test the greatest with his own formidable will to conquer golf's biggest stages." Tiger has a succint message for Rory:  "Woods responded by telling McIlroy to get going -- he put it a bit more crudely than that -- and win this week's Shell Houston Open. A victory would put McIlroy back at No. 1, a spot he held for 32 weeks before Woods' latest win." PGATOUR.com's Larry Dorman wants to know who's going to challenge Tiger at Augusta:  "Rather than wondering if the 37-year-old Woods is ready to win at Augusta, maybe the real question is whether any of his fellow competitors are ready to step up and stop him. Because by now it should be pretty clear that the guy who cruised to his eighth Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by MasterCard -- tying the PGA TOUR record for most wins at one event set by Sam Snead back in 1965 -- is honed, healthy and hitting it (and putting it) with the old authority." Meanwhile, the NY Post (and others) are not happy with Eldrick's latest NIKE spot (h/t Dawn):  "Its message was as clear as a 9-iron to the face of a cheating spouse on Thanksgiving night: Tiger can do anything he wants so long as he wins. And if he wins, then nothing else really matters." CBSSports.com's Kyle Porter says we need to pay attention to Keegan Bradley:  "Everyone is always trying to find the next great in a given sport.  The next Michael Jordan, the next Wayne Gretzky, the next Tiger Woods.  Keegan Bradley is not the next Tiger Woods, but of all the great young American golfers out there, he is most like the 77-time PGA Tour winner." Kids -- well, all golfers, really -- don't try this at home.  Or at the range.  Or on the course.  Or anywhere else. Gonzalez Fernarndez-Costano earns Special Temporary Member status. Funny story from PGA.com about some good-natured ribbing between the folks at Callaway and TaylorMade in Houston. SouthWest becomes the official airline of golf.  Not the PGA TOUR, the whole sport.  I didn't know you could do that.  Can I be the official blogger of golf?  What?  Jason Sobel already has that title?
