He pulled out of 2 tourneys, saying he wasn't ready(meaning he did not feel he could shoot 63/64). He's in this one with no 'no names' in the field, that I've seen, on perhaps an easy course. Doubtful he is going to be holding anything back as he really has nothing to lose. No doubt he has his swing grooved, or he would not be playing yet. He wins.....dirt is rubbed in everyone's faces. He loses......well, everyone expects this & it will be no big deal, except maybe to him. He gets reinjured......he's retired, gonzo!
However he plays, if he plays without being injured, will most likely indicate what we will be seeing of him next year. And I seriously doubt we will be seeing him next year if this week is something from a horror film.
