The Saint Jude Classic played at the TPC Southwind Course, in Memphis, Tennessee, was won by Brian Gay last year.

He played very well, but so far this season has not won again. Maybe Mr. Gay can show a good defense of his title this weekend.

Tiger Woods needs to be playing every event he can. The rust is evident and competitive golf in the trenches is actually the best practice he could possibly have.

Also, hey Tiger, this is an event that raises money for children in desperate needs.Why skip this one?

St. Jude is the Patron Saint of lost causes in the Catholic religion. It's beginning to be a lost cause to think Tiger Woods is anything remotely close to being a good guy.

I wonder what it is, that turns you into a jerk when you make a bunch of money.

Fame isn't all that's it's cracked up to be, I guess.

Well, on with the show. In the Yahoo Fantasy Golf world, this week I am in the 85th percentile with 3205 points.

I am ahead of all Yahoo experts for the Spring and for the entire season I am ahead of all but Romig, who only has a 21 point lead.

Beating all the experts this season was a primary goal, then we will just see how high we can get ranked on Yahoo Fantasy Golf.

My team is called NFL Mikee's Molemen if you want to check on my progress.

This week my A-player will be Zach Johnson, and his back up, Heath Slocum.

My B-entrants will be Rory McElroy and Retief Goosen. They will be backed up by J.B. Holmes, who has been money all season, and Lee Westwood, who could have a good weekend if he meets Elvis.

My C player will be my favorite player in this spot Ben Crane, with his back-up being Charl Schwartzel, who is an interesting new player to watch, with loads of talent.

The scoring should be pretty low as it always is at this event. Look for a winning total of perhaps -18 or better in Memphis this weekend.

You will see a fair share of 62-66 type scores, I imagine.

This is a great charity and great event, and is one of the charities I have donated to in the past.

You can send a donation anytime right to St. Jude Children's Hospital, in Memphis Tennessee. Remember give something, or the IRS just gets richer.

Have a fantastic week and have a drink on me.
