I'll take that bet, Geno

April 07, 2009

My old friend, the estimable Gene Wojciechowski of ESPN, offers up this lead paragraph in his column on espn.com:

"Here's my 2009 Masters deal: I'll take Tiger Woods, and you can take the other 95 dead golfers walking. Call before Tiger's Thursday 1:52 p.m. ET tee time, and I'll even throw in a ShamWow."

I might lose, but the odds say I win. Woods has won the Masters four times in 12 starts as a professional. That's a .333 batting average, which of course means that he doesn't win two of every three starts.
