I knew that Jim Furyk was a cool customer.  But after seeing his reaction to the earthquake earlier this week, I think his new nickname should be Ice Man.

Padraig Harrington is delusional

in World Golf Rankings

Padraig Harrington, currently 26th in the world rankings,  recently told the Irish Golf Desk that he believes he can become the #1 player in the world.

I think Tiger has opened it up to everybody else. In fact, I am closer to being world No 1 now than I was when I was world No 3.

Technically, that is true.  He’s currently less than 6 points behind Lee Westwood compared to almost 11 points behind Tiger in 2008 when he was ranked 3rd.  But does anybody besides Harrington think that he’s got a legitimate shot at becoming the world #1?

You can buy Yes! Golf's artificial putting green

You may or may not be aware (or even care) that Yes! golf recently filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy.  That’s the “we’re kaput” kind of bankruptcy, not the Chapter 11 “let’s get out of paying off our debt and reboot this company” kind of bankruptcy.

In an inspirational moment to over-sleepers everywhere, Jim Furyk has won the FedEx Cup and claimed both the $10m FedEx Cup prize and $1.3m for winning the Tour Championship.  Furyk added some dramatic tension over the last few holes, but the best bunker player in the world hit one of the most clutch bunker shots of his career to claim golf’s largest payday.

Maybe Furyk can afford a back-up alarm clock now?  Or he could even hire somebody to do this every morning.
