"I won't be playing that wedge. My point has been made. But if these governing bodies cannot get together to fix this loophole, if players stop using this wedge -- which would stop the pressure of the issue -- then I will relook at it and put the wedge back in play." -- Phil Mickelson, commenting on the “loophole” that allows players to use Ping Eye2 wedges (with square grooves) made before 1990
The National Weather Service has issued a blizzard warning for the Washington DC area from 10am Friday through 10pm Saturday that could dump 16-24 inches of snow. From a fantasy sports perspective, that has implications because the Wizards are scheduled to host Atlanta on Saturday (after playing in Orlando on Friday). Atlanta plays at home on Friday night as well, so both teams will need to fly into Washington on Saturday. Given the limited snow removal capabilities in the DC area, that game on Saturday night has to be considered speculative. Plan accordingly. Wizards players have not been too popular of late, but there are several players on the Hawks who have been attracting ownership.
Tyreke Evans returned to action with a vengeance last night, leading the Kings in scoring (32), assists (8), and rebounds (7), producing 57.5 TSNP. The Kings still lost to the Spurs, but credit Evans with keeping it close. He scored 23 TSNP in the final two minutes of the game (12 points, 3 assists, 2 steals), turning a 13-point deficit into a 2-point loss. Darren Collison, who many TSN teams traded Evans for on Monday, managed only 21 TSNP for his entire game last night.
GuruGolf is up and running, with 208 teams fielding a foursome for the Northern Trust Open. The most popular GuruGolfer is tour rookie Rickie Fowler, who finished 5th last week at Torrey Pines (after missing the cut in the first two tournaments.) Fowler appears on 22% of all foursomes, followed by another tour rookie, Alex Prugh, who is on 18% of foursomes after making all three cuts so far this year (and tying Fowler last week).
