Open Caption: Another Sworded Affair for Tiger
By Stephanie Wei under PGA Tour

I hope those blades are dull!

The first battle between Lee Westwood and Tiger Wood since the two switched spots in the world rankings was peculiar one, where swords were the weapon of choice. In the annual photo op for the HSBC Champions in Shanghai (remember last year’s?), the world’s top-four ranked players, Westwood, Woods, Martin Kaymer and Phil Mickelson gathered on the roof of the Peninsula Hotel on the Bund for a Tai Chi lesson. It appears Westwood and Tiger faced off, while Kaymer and Mickelson partnered up. Nice show of swordsmanship, guys!

Oh, but my favorite picture? I just can’t stop laughing…

Phil is your average 40-year-old American attempting the martial arts. I can almost hear him yelping, “Woooahhhawahh.” I mean, honestly. Anyway, uhh, my money is on Kaymer.

Okay, pictures like these call for a caption contest. Give it a go.
