    Who started the talk about Tiger starting his own all-star league and quitting the PGA Tour? Is it just speculation, or has Tiger or one of his team floated it as a trial balloon? I've been hearing the discussion for two days and I can't figure out where it started.

    The father of Anna Nicole Smith's baby started that rumor, which doesn't really narrow the field that much ...

    It was discussed by Bryant Gumbel at the end of the most recent Real Sports on HBO.

    Did he speculate or have a source?

    The fucking cherry picker might as well quit the PGA Tour for all the time he spends on it. Winning streak, my ass.

    Can you imagine Tiger Woods in NASCAR? "I don't want to race this weekend at Darlington, I raced there in 2003. Besides, I drove two weeks ago and I'm planning to drive again three weeks from now. *yawn and stretch* Boy, I could really use a vacation."

    Just trying to plum bob the depth of his arrogance

    I agree with you about Tiger's schedule in that it's a joke he plays so little. However, what he plays are the toughest tournaments. He's not "cherry-picking" to keep the streak going. Of the seven victories on the streak, two were majors and two were World Golf Championships. The other three were the Deutsche Bank in Boston last fall, and two of the events Buick sponsored, which had decent fields. His likely upcoming schedule will be the World Match Play, Bay Hill, Doral and the Masters. It's not like he's juggling his schedule to play the Honda Classic or the Disney World tournament.

    Greg Norman wanted to have a spin-off tour... that worked out well for him.

    This sounds like an idea that came out of an office in Beaverton, Oregon.

    He needed a tour with a major he could win.

    You know, I thought he had, but, well, it was a fun line.
