Here's your May 30th Pin Sheet: Rex Hoggard says all eyes are on Tiger as he gears up for the US Open:  "As Paul Goydos once famously figured, Woods is once again the most underrated player in the game, and for good reason in spite of runaway expectations entering the year’s second major." Gene Wojciechowski says Tiger just trying to get the focus back on golf:  "Just once this spring, Woods would like to go through a media session where he doesn't have to talk about anything more controversial than the soil mix of Muirfield Village's greens (in case you're interested: 90 percent sand, 5 percent peat, 5 percent "other") or his beloved Los Angeles Kings. Instead, his impressive 2013 season has been partly obscured by Veej and deer antler spray; the equipment catfight between the USGA, R&A and the Tour; his own botched ball drop at the Masters; and the recent clumsy remarks made by Garcia and European Tour boss George O'Grady." Jack says people have the wrong impression about Muirfield:  “If they’re only using (driver) two or three times, you’re not going to win a golf tournament,” said Nicklaus, who lost an 18-hole Open playoff to Lee Trevino there in 1971 when the course measured 6,544 yards. “That’s my opinion at Merion. You’ve got 2, 4, 5, 6, 14, maybe 15, and 16 and 18 where you’re going to use your driver. That’s a number of times. And you may try to drive the green on one.”" TOUR players discuss bifurcation:  "During the 90-minute meeting in a conference room in the basement of the Muirfield Pavilion, players participated in person and by phone. PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem apprised the players on what had occurred on the anchoring issue since the last meeting and then allowed players to weigh in with their concerns, opinions and thoughts." Meanwhile, Keegan Bradley and Colt Knost have some fun with the USGA on Twitter. Tiger is done with the Sergio feud, Jack says it's stupid.  Good. Ryan Lavner says changes are in order at the NCAA Championships. Randall Mell says this year's Solheim Cup squad could be youngest ever:  If the American team were decided today, there would be at least four Solheim Cup rookies on the team with the squad’s average age 26.0 years old. Lexi Thompson (18), Jessica Korda (20), Lizette Salas (23) and Jennifer Johnson (21) would all make their first appearances in the international team event. The youngest American team ever averaged 27.5 years old back in ’09 when the Americans won at Rich Harvest Farms. Davis Love III agrees to be Presidents Cup assistant.
