In other news...

Once more, Tiger Woods dominated a news cycle to the near exclusion of all other news. So, in case you missed it:

-- David Duval continues to reinforce his image as an enigma, by missing the cut at the Mayakoba Golf Classic at Riviera Maya-Cancun, a week after tying for second in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. Duval's 36-hole score of 150 was better than only five players in the field, two of them Mexican professionals marking their PGA Tour debuts.

-- John Daly made a cut for the first time in four starts and is tied for 17th at the Mayakoba. Presumably he won't re-retire after this tournament.

-- The LPGA is in the midst of its first event of 2010, though it isn't getting much attention domestically because it's being played in Thailand, at a time most of America is asleep. Suzann Petterson has a five-stroke lead. Paula Creamer had to withdraw with a thumb injury. And a bus in which Christina Kim was riding was involved in an accident that left her shaken, but otherwise uninjured.

-- John Strege
