SAN FRANCISCO - OCTOBER 10: Greg Norman, Captain of the International Team points out the line of a putt to Vijay Singh on the 18th green during the Day Three Afternoon Fourball Matches of The Presidents Cup at Harding Park Golf Course on October 10, 2009 in San Francisco, California.

Here's your May 2nd Pin Sheet: In case you somehow missed it, Vijay Singh withdraws from Wells Fargo one day after being cleared for the Deer Antler fiasco. Not a great week for the Wells Fargo event, writes Jason Sobel:  "Before the first official shot was even struck this week, the event was hampered by a weakened field (only one top-10 player is here); an epidemic of withdrawals (nine and counting so far); patchy, brownish greens (new ones will be installed next week); and a long-awaited procedural announcement (Vijay Singh getting off scot-free after admitting to using a banned substance)." Bob Harig says Rickie Fowler has substance to go with his style:  "For several years, he has been discussed as one of the top young American players and has all but multiple victories to prove it. A playoff victory a year ago over Rory McIlroy and D.A. Points was long in coming and seen as a breakthrough, but a back injury plagued him last summer and a second win still awaits." More from Sobel, this time reacting to the Jason Collins story:  "True to his words, when some of his peers were questioned on the same topic – not for their personal thoughts about one of their own coming out on Tour, but as part of the general consensus – few offered no comment, few declined to speculate on what is for now a hypothetical situation and others felt indifferent toward the issue." Sigh.  More on the Tiger drop story, this time from Sports Illustrated:  "Millions watched Woods make his now-famous second-round drop on ESPN on the 15th hole at 6:33 p.m. on that Friday in mid-April. But only one person was able to get a message to Ridley about it. And that person, it turns out, was the Champions tour golfer David Eger." Meanwhile, both the USGA and R&A support the ruling. In more important news, Bill Haas expected first son...any minute now. The kiddie table: 12-year old Ye Wocheng posts 79 in the first round of the European Tour's China Open. Guan Tianling accepts invite to play Byron Nelson. There's a documentary about 7-year olds preparing for the Junior World Championships.  I **** you not.  Bill Haas' first son to play in Open Champinship qualifier.  Just kidding.
