Thanksgiving is finally upon us and sure I could post on 394 things I'm grateful for (Jordan Spieth, Nike Covert driver, British Open finish, etc.) but why don't we have a little fun with it and post on the biggest turkeys of 2013 instead?
The list is not short -- these are folks who, if given an opportunity, would likely take a mulligan in things they did and/or said in the past golf season.
On to the awards!
Dave Eger -- Forever "the guy who called on Tiger at the Masters." I do wonder of Eger would take his mulligan, though. I think he thinks he did the right thing (and maybe he did) but he was, pardon the pun, roasted for it in households everywhere.
Lindsey Vonn -- Tiger probably thinks she's a turkey for tossing this squirrel on his neck (when did this become a National Geographic blog? Tigers! Turkeys! Squirrels!)
Rory McIlroy -- For pulling out of the Honda Classic because of a "toothache." He at least owned up to it the week after. Maybe McIlroy should just get one turkey leg instead of an entire turkey.
Phil Mickelson -- He's not so much a turkey for complaining about California tax laws but more so for taking it back. If you're going to roll, Lefty, roll. Here was the quote:
"I'm not sure what exactly, you know, I'm going to do yet. I'll probably talk about it more in depth next week. I'm not going to jump the gun, but there are going to be some. There are going to be some drastic changes for me because I happen to be in that zone that has been targeted both federally and by the state and, you know, it doesn't work for me right now. So I'm going to have to make some changes."
Bubba Watson -- This blowup at the Travelers Championship went away rather quickly but it wasn't pretty while it lasted.
