While watching the FBR Open today, I had a sense that television is desperate for a young player to step up and challenge the dominance of Mr. Woods. They kept talking about the various young players on the tour, and how they might challenge the World’s Number 1. High on their lists were JB Holmes and Ryan Palmer.
But there have been many challengers to Tiger over the past decade, and none could stand up to the legend. It would be good for golf if one of these young guys did turn out to be the Tiger’s Tom Watson, or Lee Trevino.
But I’m not holding my breath.
