Rounding up some midweek links to keep you up with what's new in the golf world. Enjoy, and feel free to hold court in the comments below.
• And yet another person is ripping Fred Couples' selection of Tiger Woods to the Presidents Cup team; this time it's Geoff Ogilvy. (To clarify, Ogilvy wasn't pleased that Couples announced the pick so early, adding, "I'm not going to stand up and say Tiger is a horrible pick, but I'm going to say it's very disappointing that Keegan Bradley doesn't get to play. That's where I'm at with it.") Sheesh, doesn't anybody want Tiger there? Aside from Couples, Woods, Tim Finchem, broadcast networks and every single advertiser who's paying money for this event, of course. [AP via Yahoo! Sports]
• Arnold Palmer's getting hard. Hard alcohol, that is. The famed Arnold Palmer Half & Half (half iced tea, half lemonade, and I hope I didn't have to tell you that) is now getting spiked with alcohol. Presumably it won't be a half-and-half-and-half, because that'd be impossible. And also probably turn you blind. Anyway, it's Arnie. Buy it. [Dogs That Chase Cars]
• One day into the Taiwan Championship, and world-beating Yani Tseng is already in front, tied with Ai Miyazato for the lead. Of course she is. [AP via Yahoo! Sports]
• Nice sidelight to the PGA Grand Slam of Golf: all four players brought their families, including their fathers, to enjoy a few days of fine weather and fine golf in Bermuda. George Schwartzel, Gerry McIlroy, Godfrey Clarke and Mark Bradley have to be proud of their boys right about now. [Golfweek]
• Jack Nicklaus is monkeying yet again with the course layout at Muirfield Village, site of the Memorial and the first course in the world to host a Ryder Cup, Solheim Cup and Presidents Cup. Add a windmill this time, Jack! [Golf Digest]
