Tomorrow they'll be rivals.
Nicklaus And Woods In Same Foursome
By Kickntrue on 6/2/09
Morgan Stanley's lack of money turns out to be fan's gain. Tomorrow Tiger and Jack will tee it up together.
Woods and Nicklaus will participate tomorrow in a nine-hole Skins Game, an event thatGÇÖs replaced the tournamentGÇÖs annual pro-am competition at the Muirfield Village Golf Club in Ohio.

The pairing of Woods, golfGÇÖs No. 1-ranked player, and Nicklaus, the winner of a record 18 major tournaments, is a direct result of Morgan StanleyGÇÖs decision not to entertain clients and employees at the annual tournament in Dublin, Ohio. Prior to this year, Morgan Stanley filled all 54 amateur spots in the pre-tournament pro-am event as part of a sponsorship agreement that expires in 2010.
I'm sure it's not hard to figure out which the fans would rather see. Honestly, it's almost intriguing enough to want TV coverage. That "other" skins game used to get prime time tv, and this foursome has to rival those. Tiger, Jack, Kenny Perry and Stewart Cink. I'll clear my schedule.

That's great if it gets televised, but I have a better idea. I'd have liked to have seen them continue the pro-am, but fill the amateur spots with kids from the 1st tee program. Imagine the stories the kids could tell their grandkids some day about the time they got to play in the same group as Tiger Woods and Jack Niklaus.

Seems like they could charge to play in it rather than costing them money

This will prove to be a very interesting adjunct to this event and I would be willing to bet, "Great Fun Will Be Had By All"!! JWHpurist

There are 2 groups for the skins game. Can you imagine how few people will actully follow the second group that doesn't have Tiger and Jack???
Kickntrue says:
They were smart enough to send the "other" group off first so they'd be seen by all fans. Not a bad "other group." Vijay, Camillo, Padraig, and Furyk aren't exactly scrubs.
