What they needed was a camera on Spencer Levin on Sunday as he was hacking it around to a 77. That should be the Golf Channel's next show. "Back of the Pack" where they follow hotheads while they're either blowing-up on Sunday or just playing out the string of a tournament that they threw away on Saturday. My order of viewing preference yesterday would have been: (1) watching Spencer Levin sulking and seething his way to a 77, (2) watching Brendon De Jonge eat the hamburger from the Jeremiah Weed commercial, and (3) watching Bob Estes shoot 64.

How do you like them apples?"
For the second week in a row my pick came to the 18th hole with a chance to make the playoff but Gary Woodland attempted to defy the laws of physics and hit a pitching wedge from 168, made par and missed it by a stroke. Woodland now has a win, six top 10's and three top 30's in the majors. He has a Samuel L. Jackson type demeanor in that, when he does something good he looks like he's saying, "that's right muther---ker" and, when he screws-up, he cracks a psycho smile. Despite all of this, he never seems to be in the conversation about the best young American players. Maybe he needs to dress in all orange or blow a couple of majors on Sunday to get noticed.
