    It will be nice to watch a lot more big names (7 players in top 20) this week and the views from the tv coverage at Mayakova are usually incredible. So it’s an exciting week.

    As you know Tom:
    This is a claustrophobic place, which makes it a straight hitters paradise. With mangrove trouble on both sides a lot of the big name bombers could struggle a bit.

    So much action is being placed on straight hitting Mexican Ancer the odds are changing significantly; but the defending champ Hovland is who’s on my mind. Defending is not easy but a relaxing retreat like this place probably makes it easier. So I like Viktor defending this week.

    Poor kuchar man….he will never live that one down. Even once he came to his senses he sent the Tucan 45$k to make it an even 50$k. Kuchar could have done himself a lot of good by paying some interest on that money he held on to too long. But he didn’t.

    As for el Tucan fighting for his deserved pay means he will never loop for Kooch again. Still that was a wise business move considering he would have to loop 10 times (at 5$k a pop) to get to 50$k.

    Maybe not Kuchar but it will be interesting to see if the infamous winning local caddie gets work for anyone else.
