Tiger Woods passes on Hamilton -- again

So Tiger Woods has decided -- once again -- that puny little Hamilton, Ontario (population 500,000+) is not big enough for his game or his ego, and he'll pass on participating at the Canadian Open when it comes here next week. What, Tiger, you scared of playing on a course that will actually challenge your wits?

Not that it matters much, anyway. I managed to snag free passes to the 2000 tournament when he clobbered the competition at Oakville's Glen Abbey; before collapsing the next year when the Open was in Montréal. I couldn't afford to get tickets even if I wanted to right now, but maybe his absence will open up the competition a lot more, making for a more fun weekend.

And more sales for the pizza place.
