Stolen 2009 Golf Predictions

I’M WAY LATE to the predictions party, but I feel a certain obligation to post some anyway. Plus, there’s a distinct advantage. I can use the predictions of others instead of coming up with my own. Here we go.

1. Tiger Woods will make his return at the CA Championship at Doral.
From Bob Weeks at ScoreGolf. Sure, why not?

2. Michelle Wie will win on the LPGA Tour.
From Brandel Chamblee at the Golf Channel. (Just going along with others who have Wie on their prediction list.)

3. Phil Mickelson prediction goes here.

I’m still looking for one I like.

4. John Daly prediction goes here.

Ditto.

5. Due to cutbacks everywhere, “golf” will lose a letter in 2009 and will henceforth be known as “gof.”
Still trying to remember where I found this. There’s definitely some weird stuff on the Web. (OK, I'm fessing up: it's mine.)

6. Sergio Garcia will win a major.

Actually, I’m going out on a limb and calling this one my own. I’m going to make this prediction every year because some year it will come true.

7. Lorena Ochoa will get engaged.

(I wanted to get at least one right.)

Geoff Ogilvy will win the MB Championship. You can take that to the bank.

Ben Curtis will play in a PGA sanctioned tournament, and I'll cheer for him. (Sorry, I went way out on a limb there.)

Bobbio, Tom, what can I say? You guys are rock solid, as always. Thanks for putting yourself out there.

By the way, I forgot one -- and it's a doozy: Tiger Woods will speak at the inauguration.

Phil Mickelson, in his typical "what standard club will I forget about this year during a major" move, will carry an extra 2-iron as a putter in case he misses a chip or two.

Personally, I prefer "olf" to "gof".

I always predict that Sergio will win a Major, and this year will be no different - sure he'll let me down again though!

Bobbio - i like your style. Ogilvy is a great golfer, with a fantastic temperament, and i wouldn't be surprised to see his name on a Major this year. But then agian i am biased :)

4. At the Equatorial New Guinea Invitational, John Daly accidentally eats Tad Fujikawa who was loitering dangerously close to the buffet table . Daly is let off with a warning after Mr. Fujikawa is burped up whole.

I think that's a winning Daly prediction, John. Wait a minute ... you're not ... no, it couldn't be!
