Who do you like in the Mayakoba?

February 25, 2009

Yes, there is another tournament being played, the PGA Tour's Mayakoba Golf Classic at Riviera Maya-Cancun starting on Thursday, though you'd never know it.

The coverage of Tiger Woods' return to competitive golf has been all-consuming, which is a polite way of putting it. Over the top is how my sarcastic friend Lew Price put it. Price wrote in an email: "I've never actually seen a sports player come back and play after an injuryâ¿¿this is incredibly historicâ¿¿I mean, I didn't even know they could operate on an injured knee."
