Was anyone else worried that an almost entirely Tiger-less 2010 PGA Tour season would be bland and run-of-the-mill?
Sadly, I was one of these people.
I was quick to succumb to media whispers that without Woods' monumental impact, not only would TV ratings suffer, but there would be a total lack of suspense, fervor, and intrigue for golf fans worldwide.
However, if this season has taught me anything thus far, it's that being proven wrong can sometimes feel pretty darn good.
This season's champions encompass an array of golfers across the spectrum.
From youthful first-timers to sweet-swinging veterans and long-overdue contenders, which of these talented golfers is most likely to build on their victory?
While I can only guess at that, I can tell you one thing for sure: don't underestimate how thrilling the current world of golf is.
