POSTCARD FROM HAZELTINE
CHASKA, Minn. -- How big is Tiger's impact on an event? CBS sent out an e-mail stating Saturday's ratings at Hazeltine were up 390 percent from the third round at Oakland Hills last year, when Woods was sidelined after knee surgery. ...
Cut victims Adam Scott and Sergio Garcia entered this week's PGA Tour event in Greensboro, N.C., in last-ditch efforts to move up in the FedEx Cup race. Scott (110th entering the PGA Championship) and Garcia (114th) are locks to get in the field for the Barclays, the first event of golf's postseason. But barring a pair of strong finishes, both are in jeopardy of missing the Deutsche Bank (100 players) the following week and are well outside the field parameters for BMW Championship qualification (70). ...
Congratulations to Ryo Ishikawa (8-over 296) for becoming the youngest player to make a major cut this week. The 17-year-old from Japan already boasts five pro victories in Asia and looks like a can't-miss future star.
-- Barker Davis
