Now for two weeks in a row, round four of the PGA Tournament has been turned into a victory tour.

Luckily for the association, it has been tour for arguably  the two most iconic players in today’s game–Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson.

Last weekend at the Farmers Insurance Open, Tiger Woods accumulated a lead large enough on Sunday, that most of the fourth round that was suspended until Monday became an all Woods celebration. Though he did not play at all well, the lead was so big that it it did not matter. Tiger was seen smiling throughout the day, and retirees and the unemployed that was allowed to enjoy his mid-day Monday round saw a great show.

And a similar show will be on display today. Mickelson is one of the most lovable golfers on tour. He is by far

one of the more popular. It is great to see him, on the west coast (or at least close to it) do so well. The only thing that is left, since he has a six stroke lead, is to see if he has the ‘letdown’ that Tiger had. Or if he is able to continue his dominance.
