Quote of the Day

From Mark Calcavecchia at the Tour Championship...

I'm wrecked, I'm destroyed. Like someone else said, Tiger is tired after two weeks. I've got him by 80 pounds and 17 years. How do you think I'm doing after eight out of nine (weeks)? He could run from here to downtown. I couldn't run out of a burning house (laughter). Yeah, I'm tired.

I like the way everybody assumes by fatigue, Tiger means weakness. It's not just the travel, it's maintaining the level of intensity for an extended time. That's probably the difference between Tiger and everybody else. He's not just playing golf, he's totally absorbed in trying to win. I would find that hard to believe, but when I was a kid, I used to play chess competitively. Two hours over that board (not just casually moving pieces but really grinding against my opponent) really took a lot out of me. I was surprised about that at first.
