WGC Cadillac Final Round Thoughts and Highlights

imageYou have to feel a bit sorry for Justin Rose. He won the WGC Cadillac Championship, but was overshadowed by Tiger Woods, who didn’t finish the round. In fact, he may even have been overshadowed by Bubba Watson, who came in with a big lead, gave it away and then nearly forced a playoff. I really don’t recall a lot of Rose footage, compared to that of Watson and Keegan Bradley. That’s too bad. Rose is a very worthy champion.

Watson, I think, needs to learn to scale it back and win. He had the lead and all he needed was to reel off a bunch of pars. But maybe he’s the new generation Phil Mickelson—his creativity

Bradley is in the process of turning himself into a major star. This year, he’s made eight starts, eight cuts, and has eight top 25 finishes. One of those was a second, and two were top tens. He’s currently 11th on the FedEx Cup list. But I saw on Sunday quite a bit of a temper at some missed shots. I hope that doesn’t get his way.

Rory is playing like a true World Number 1. After winning the Honda, he manages a third place, just two shots back the following week. There’s no way he is anything but the favorite this year at the Masters (and perhaps the other Majors).

And then there’s Tiger. Another injury, and another withdrawal—his third in his last 33 starts, to go with two missed cuts. He’s not the guy he was five years ago—not by any stretch of the imagination.
