We’re just over 12 hours away from “Glory’s Last Shot” or, as I like to call it “Last Chance for Romance”, or as Chris Wang likes to call it “Last Chance for Bromance.”
I will highlight each of the 11 Nike Golf athletes tee times and give their current World Golf Ranking.
(all times Eastern)
8:05 AM – Tee 10 – Stewart Cink | Angel Cabrera | Ross Fisher
This is almost a home game for Cink. He should do really well this week.
Stewart is ranked 85th in the world.
8:35 AM – Tee 10 – Tiger Woods | Padraig Harrington | Davis Love III
Tiger is practicing early. I think the heat could bother him, but I know he won’t quit.
Tiger is currently ranked 30th in the world. Wow.
9:05 AM – Tee 10 – Paul Casey | Steve Stricker | Miguel Angel Jiminez
Casey isn’t playing great, but he’s playing in a group of solid men. That could help him.
PC is ranked 16th in the world.
12:45 PM – Tee 1 – Scott Erdman | David Horsey | Yuta Ikeda
Erdman is a pro. Putt for dough. Drive for show. Superman that..
1:05 PM – Tee 1 – Anthony Kim | Jhonattan Vegas | Ernie Els
AK is coming out with a vengeance. Vegas is coming out to his 2nd major ever.
AK is ranked 61st in the world
Jhonny Vegas is ranked 107th.
1:45 PM – Tee 1 – Charl Schwartzel | Rory McIlroy | Darren Clarke
Schwartzel hasn’t finished outside of the Top 30 in the past 6 majors. I don’t believe anyone else can say that.
Charl is currently 12th in the world.
2:00 PM – Tee 10 – Simon Dyson | Trevor Immelman | Bryce Molder
Dyson has come on strong the last few weeks. He had to battle at Firestone, but has been playing very well and picked up a win.
Simon is currently ranked 49th in the world.
2:15 PM – Tee 1 – Lucas Glover | Francesco Molinari | Camilo Villegas
Glover and Moli could have the best weeks of all of the Nike athletes. They both play well in Majors.
Lucas is currently 57th
Francesco is currently. 23rd.
2:45 PM – Tee 1 – Jeff Coston | D.J. Trahan | Seung-yul Noh
Coston is a Professional. Can’t say much more than that!
The swoosh has a really good chance to pull out a major win this week. Glover/Molinari/Cink/AK are all good sleepers, while Tiger/Charl lead the pack. Best of luck to all the golfers representing Nike golf this week in Georgia.
