Who’s Next To Step Up?

Veteran PGA Tour pro Paul Goydos said it best this past week at the Buick Invitational, “The next Vijay Singh could be in this field, and we just don't know it. That's the story that needs to be told. We get caught up in the negativity of who's not here, as opposed to the positive of who is here.”

It’s accurate to state that the lack of ‘stars’ like Tiger Woods, Sergio Garcia and Vijay Singh, all of whom weren’t part of the field at Torrey Pines, were part of the tournament’s drop in TV ratings. It also wouldn’t be surprising if these absences also contributed to lower attendance at the venue.

For those that thought the tournament was boring, Camilo Villegas came millimeters from sinking an eagle putt, which would have tied him for the lead on the 72nd hole, and Nick Watney still needed to sink a 3-footer to finish out for the win… so there was still excitement to be had late in the tournament.

The advice of the editors at IB18 is to keep watch the tournaments and start putting names to faces that weren’t so recognizable, because Vijay Singh is coming off an injury, Sergio Garcia may still have putting woes.

And as we channel hoops coach Rick Pitino… Tiger Woods isn’t walking through that door anytime soon.
