The Green Blazer would have normally used this opportunity to zing Ian Poulter for opening his big mouth, but SportsCenter's anchor ripped him so perfectly that there is no need to:
Since then, Poulter claimed that he was misquoted and that he actually said, "It would be a dream to sit back one day and look at the world rankings and see it say, Tiger Woods and then me. Well, if you shorten that phrase down, 'Tiger Woods and then me,' you get what you've got in the paper today, or the magazine."
At first, The Blazer was quick to give Poulter the benefit on the doubt thinking maybe he was misquoted. That was until I heard the following comment, which officially landed Ian Poulter a spot on The Green Blazer's list of idiots:

Golf Channel showed that they still don’t have it completely together. It’s bad enough being forced to watch at least a portion of every PGA Tour event in extended definition, but Golf Channel always has their fair share of blunders. A few are captured below.
Jerry Foltz failed to do his due diligence here
Fat boy John Daly battled his injury both on the course and now in the courts blaming a fan for sidelining him when she snapped a pic in his downswing causing him to flinch and hurt himself. Broke John Daly, who has withdrew 12 times in the past two years, is being accused by some for suing a tournament that denotes the majority of the profits to charity. Supporters of Daly say something like, “well… he’s actually suing the insurance company, so it won’t affect the tournament’s profits that much… the children will be straight.” Either way, based on his bitching about the cost of getting to Hawai’i last week in a post round interview, Daly’s financial situation is less than stable . This week marks the 12th time Daly has withdrew in the past 2 years.
Calc raps it up with the clip of the week as he uses his big toe to feel the subtle break in this 6 footer.

Faldo certainly didn’t have any articulation problems; his commentary was clear as usual. The video below captured just a few Faldo zingers.
Jim Furyk needed an up and in to make the cut, and even under that type of pressure showed why he is one of the tour’s nice guys, even when he gets disturbed mid- swing.
Vijay had a dull showing, which is unusual for him given his success in Hawai’i. He also found some power he didn’t know he had when he pissed Daly off by knocking one on the green while they were putting.
Speaking of Daly, he wasn’t too thrilled about the new cut rule.
Rory could care less about the cut rule, but wasn’t too thrilled about anything during this debacle on Sunday.

Tilghman suggested that the younger players should, “...lynch Tiger Woods in a back alley.”
Kelly Tilghman - Lynch him in the back alley

It was just a clumsy joke, but then again trashy Tanya Harding’s scheme to end Nancy Kerrigan’s skating career probably started as an innocent little joke as well. Tilghman has since apologized for the remarks and has reached out to Woods’ representatives to express her regrets.
This was no surprise to The Green Blazer, who has been making note of a subtle transformation taking place in Tilghman as of late. Since she became the lead play-by-play announcer for The Golf Channel, (which now has the rights to a portion of every PGA Tour event) Tilghman’s comfort level has been heightened to a point where her personality has become at best annoying, and at worst downright irritating. Sure, those of you nancies out there who enjoy the Green Blazer on a, shall we say, less-than-hardcorps basis might say "Hey GB, aren't you being a little harsh. I mean, she's just being herself. Give the girl a break, otay?" But the real corps members know one of the The Green Blazer's routine superpowers is his extremely acute radar sense for the yearning emotion the modern-day douche bag emits when longing for others to think they are cool.
The yearning in this particular case was a little different than the standard sycophantic kissing of Tiger’s ass and the asses of the world’s other top golfers, which is prevalent in so many commentators of today (The Blazer's looking right at you, Rich Lerner). The Blazer's super-sense detected this yearning as the kind that manifests in the form of a swell in annoying one-liners coupled with an abundance of dim-witted jokes. The old Tilghman would have never had the gumption to make such a lewd comment, especially in an age where commentators must be particularly careful when not to use the GolfLord’s name in vein. Tilghman the clumsy pilgrim quickly confessed her sins, however, and is not likely to become the next Don Imus. But if she does you can bet the Blazer will be Tilghman's Al Sharpton, denouncing her on the O-Reilly Factor for two weeks straight. Hell, the corps was about to organize a Tilghman protest before any of this went down, simply because of how annoying we've been forced to watch her become.
“Group of young white golfers attack, murder Tiger Woods in racially motivated back alley killing.” The preceding headline might be a joke to Kelly Tilghman but like most of her stupid jokes, she was the only one laughing.
