Day 20 without playing golf
Let's hear it for the silly season. (OK, let's not.) Like it or not, the silly season is here.
Jason Gore and Fred Funk have the first-round lead in the (yawn) Franklin Templeton Shootout. Does anyone care?
In a few weeks, the funky one will tee it up in the Skins Game in sunny California. That makes two Freds who will play in the Thanksgiving weekend invitational.
Fred Couples has made a nice living during the silly season. For someone with a bad back who hardly practices and seldom plays, he gets a whole lot out of his game -- especially in the Skins Game.
Watch out Tiger and Annika, the Freds may just steal the show.
