'Good day for golf'

May 09, 2009

So said this headline in a Wisconsin newspaper.

Alas, it wasn't a story on the demise of the Skins Game, but on a high school golf tournament.

No matter. The fact that the 2009 Skins Game was canceled for lack of ~~interest ~~ a sponsor is not necessarily a bad thing. What was its appeal anymore, other than providing televised golf on Thanksgiving weekend?

IMG Media is talking about bringing the event back in 2010. Should it do so, it would behoove all concerned that it return in a revised format that hopefully would freshen what had become golf's stalest event.
