Tiger bagging Nissan

If you thought Tiger Woods was being just a little too blase about his PGA Tour winning streak of seven-in-a-row, you're right. No matter what he says, he really does want to break Byron Nelson's once unthinkable record of 11 in a row.

The proof is in Tiger's schedule. A peek at his official website shows that Tiger's next event is the Match Play Championship in two weeks, meaning he's skipping his hometown Nissan Open next week at Riviera Country Club in Los Angeles.

This would be the Nissan Open that Tiger has been playing in every year since his amateur days. This is also a tournament he hasn't won in 11 attempts.

"We have to see if he plays L.A.," Luke Donald said about Woods' streak in an LA Times story. "If he skips L.A., it might be more important than he is letting on."

I guess he must keep his sponsors happy.

From Thomas Bonk's column in the LA Times:

In case you're wondering, Tiger Woods is in Florida this week shooting commercials instead of shooting under par at Riviera.
