Tiger Woods-Tim Tebow Duo at Pebble Beach?
By mustang6560 on 1/13/12
Tiger Woods, who is one of the most polarizing figures on the PGA Tour, may be paired with Tim Tebow, who is one of the most polarizing figures in the National Football League, at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro Am next month.

The former world number one announced earlier in the week that he will return to Pebble for the first time since 2002. So naturally, the tournament immediately started to look for a teammate for Tiger and Tim is at the top of the list. A "highly placed" source at Pebble Beach told globalgolfpost.com that the tournament is "strongly" considering sending Tim an invitation, and if he accepts, the source said the tournament wants to pair him alongside Tiger.

Yes, I know, it's only a rumor at this point - PLUS Tiger would still have to approve the pairing - but I hope it happens! If for some reason the Tiger-Tim pairing falls through, at least I got to post a picture of me "Tebowing"!

Word on the street is that Tiger already picked Tony Romo... Much more fitting, but doesn't provide the same photoshop opportunity.

So one has to wonder what exactly Mustang6560 is praying for - Alabama leaving the SEC? A special 22 point play for LSU?




Okay, okay. It is not nice to pick on LSU fans while they are in mourning. -1 for me.

I sure hope that pairing doesn't happen. Can't wait for the Broncos to lose so I can stop hearing about that joker they call a quarterback.

Tebow was a douche in the NCAA and he's a douche in the NFL. Way to back into the playoffs with 3 straight losses.

Getting paired with Tiger doesn't seem like a reason to show up. There are lots of guys I'd rather get paired with... I mean, I like watching Tiger hit great shots, but having to hang with him for 4 hours sounds painful.

On the rare occasions that I've got to see Sportsnation they keep going on about Tim Tebow, now it seems even the golf community keeps going on about Tim Tebow. What is it about Tim Tebow that's got you all so fascinated?! Is he not 'just' a Quarterback?

Would they bill the pairing as The Saint and the Sinner?

@jp: I'm not a huge NFL fan but I'll try and break it down. Tim Tebow was a hugely successful college football player who was regarded as not having the game to make it in the NFL. He runs the ball well but doesn't throw it so good, his balls in the air look a bit wobbly compared to the top flite QBs. But he is scrappy and not afraid to take a hit. This year he advanced to the starting QB position and then led his team to a improbable run which now has them in the 2nd round of the playoffs facing perennial favorites the New England Patriots. The run consisted of several late game, scrappy comeback wins, perpetuating a belief among his fans that Tim Tebow possesses some sort of intangible, winning mojo. Also known for being devoutly Christian, a virgin etc. Naturally he is highly despised/beloved for the super cleancut image. Very polarizing. I don't think him and Tiger Woods in the same group is a good idea.

@beef... Nice job summing up Tebow. The only thing I would add is a little about his throwing motion and footwork. He takes a long time to throw. In passing situations, he would be the Kevin Na of football.

I second that on the Tebow summation. However, I would like to throw something out for everyone to think about. Is Tebow polarizing or is the media's coverage of Tebow polarizing?? How many jagoff's in the NFL have been looked up to as role models by our youth only to see these guys carted off to jail or on trial for one offence or another. Along comes Tebow. Clean cut, respectful, never been in any legal trouble(knock on wood), winner at every level he's played at, and they want beat him over the head for being a christian. That and he doesn't have the footwork of a Manning or the release of an Elway. Whatever.
