Rub of the Green: Woods vs. Yang at PGA proves anything can happen


As the old saying goes, if you want to make more putts, you must have more confidence. How do you gain added confidence? You must make more putts! Crazy? Sure, but that’s the kind of game it is.

• Chad Collins is continuing to rise on the Nationwide money list. With $25,000 garnered last Sunday, Collins moved into the 14th spot with $168, 581. The top 25 will earn playing privileges on the PGA Tour for 2010.

• Don Albert celebrated his first hole in one recently when he holed his wedge shot on number eight at River Bend Golf Course at The Landing.

Witnessing Albert’s ace were Harvey Cabak and Pappy Poore.

TIP OF THE WEEK: Jack Nicklaus was considered the best putter of his era. He was asked how many putts he had missed that he had to make to win various tournaments. He answered, “None — in my mind.”

Jack never putted until after he had envisioned the ball rolling into the cup, a good idea for any golfer.

Keep your head down and your shoestrings tied. We’ll be back.
