If Alex Cejka would have had his way, Tiger Woods would have been seeing red.
AS YOU PROBABLY KNOW by now, things didn’t work out today for Alex Cejka, who took a five-shot lead into the final round of the Players Championship. Nor did they work out for his playing partner, Tiger Woods. To put it bluntly, their pairing was a train wreck.
But I got a huge kick out of the final exchange Cejka had in his post-round media conference. The subject was shirts.
Q. As it turns out, you were joking last night with the red shirt?
ALEX CEJKA: No, I was looking in my suitcase, and believe me, I have a big suitcase. I have 40 shirts with me because I'm on the road for a couple months. I didn't have one. I had green, pink, orange, black, plaid, every color, but I didn't have red.
Q. But you would have worn it?
ALEX CEJKA: I would have worn it if I had it.
Q. You don’t think that would have annoyed him?
ALEX CEJKA: I can wear what I want.
Q. It didn’t work for him, either.
ALEX CEJKA: Yeah.
Q. Do you usually wear red and black on Sunday?
ALEX CEJKA: No, I’m black and white on Sundays.
