Friggin' Amateurs

The title bemoans not for Danny Lee and his recent victory at the Georgia Cup, but for both the New York Times and Bloomberg News, who, in the opinion of IB18 editors, have no business reporting on golf or the PGA Tour ever again.

Harsh words? Sure they are. For the titled blurb 'Woods's Youth Record Falls' from today's online NYT (reported by Bloomberg News) notes an achievement that occurred six months ago at the U.S. Amateur championship, when Lee became the youngest winner ever, beating out Tiger Woods by six months.

Of course, this probably wasn't news to NYTOnline or Bloomberg back then, considering that Woods was not playing due to his knee problems. So it isn't too far fetched to think that they had no clue who Danny Lee was, nor did they care until Tiger was 'back' (most notably with his victory at the Arnie Invite this past week).

Still, it's too little too late for all the news that's fit to print.

NYTOnline and Bloomberg News, in trying to make us aware of a story six months after the fact and presenting it to us as 'news', have thus won their own amateur championship.
