Cink And The Hitchhiker
By Kickntrue on 8/10/09
Here's a fun antidote from last week featuring Stewart Cink and some of his buddies picking up a Tom Watson loving hitchhiker. From Jeff Rude at Golfweek:
GÇ£The funniest comments (about the British) have come from people who donGÇÖt know me,GÇ¥ Cink said.The story could've been alot different. Can you imagine if we learned about Cink being gutted by a killer hitchhiker while hiking in the remote woods of Montana? Ehh- I guess I watch too many movies.
Check out the link- there are a couple extras thrown on the end worth reading including an amazing stat about Tiger and his winning percentage since 2006. Those who say he's "lost it" just can't accept the truth.

The Cink story is pretty funny. I have to say I'm not a fan of the "winning percentage" stat. It's impressive, but it's kind of skewed.
Let's keep in mind that he was unable to play for most of '08. He won 4 out of 6 tournaments, but there is no way to tell if he would have continued that percentage. This year, he's got 5 wins, but 8 more starts, which means that if you look only at that stat... his best "winning percentage" season is behind him.
I saw a stat, I wish I could remember where, of his actual winning percentage, and it was around 30%. That works out to about 5 wins/year if you take his average of 17 starts per year (not including the '08 season). I'd say he's still at the top of his game.
I wonder if the hitchhiker followed the unwritten book of the road.
@kidputter- i sure hope not. if so- i never want to hear about it.
