I rarely listen to Rush anymore, but today in the car I decided to see what the old fart was spewing.

Today he intimated that Rory Sabbatini intentionally lost the Jack Nicklaus' Memorial Tournament to Tiger Woods "for the good of golf".  Nevermind that Tiger hit a shot that even Jack Nicklaus said was one of the best he's ever seen.  Nevermind what Jack may think of a golfer intentionally losing a tournament - or more specifically his tournament, or that Rory wouldn't want to win a tournament hosted by one of the legends of golf.  Nevermind that Tiger played out of his mind on the back nine yesterday.  All Rush took from it was that Rory played to lose, and then guessed that Rory got the champions purse from the PGA for throwing the tournament.

The PGA should and must address this.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
