The Players Championship

Today is the final round of the Players Championship in golf. It is often considered the "fifth major" in golf. It has taken on more significance since it has been moved to a more prominent May date. The course setup certainly warrants it being a major. Although it lacks the tradition of the other four it is an ideal "made for the 21st century major" so I expect there will be more discussion about this. However, golfer from other nations might not want a major sponsored by one particular tour or having four majors in the United States.

Today's final round has Alex Cejka with a five stroke lead but, his Tigerness is in the final group. Whenever he is in that position things always get interesting. A five stroke lead is not much on this course especially when the guy playing with you has a red shirt, even though he does not have his A-game this week.
