Just for the record, those who want to commend Captain Jack for pushing his men to concede Vijay Singh’s par putt on Thursday need to know that Nicklaus didn’t even know Singh was putting. He thought Mike Weir was putting and felt it would be gracious to concede a tiddler to Canada’s favorite son. Neither Nicklaus nor International captain Gary Player has been particularly lucid this week. Make no mistake, vice captains Jeff Sluman and Ian Baker-Finch are doing most of the heavy lifting.

c Now that the singles matches are almost upon us, the Rover would like to share his favorite tongue-in-cheek quotes from the Internationals about how to beat Tiger Woods in singles:

Said Ernie Els: “Shoot about a 62 and hope for the best.”

Said Nick O’Hern: “He’s not much good against lefties.”

Of course, the left-handed O’Hern has a 2-0 record against Woods at the Accenture Match Play.
