The Rover would like apologize to anyone who had to endure him on the radio yesterday morning. He was under the impression the interview was taking place at 6:50 p.m., so imagine his surprise, mental, physical and emotional state when the phone rang him from a sound sleep at 6:50 a.m. after a late evening defined by pinot noir and the Stanley Cup Finals. Bob Dylan would sound better after gargling with gravel.

• No wonder neither Tiger Woods nor Sergio Garcia could putt yesterday. Both were wearing distractingly unattractive shades of lime green, not a color that says dressed for success.

• The Rover is openly rooting for Monty, the player who carried the burden of best-player-never-to-win-a-major longer than anyone. Nobody would call him a fan favorite on the order of Phil Mickelson or Tiger, but his long-suffering status has finally made him more tragic hero than heckle-magnet for U.S. golf galleries.
