With Tiger Woods opening his 2012 PGA Tour season at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, the event was already going to be a zoo. Now there’s chatter of the possibility of Tim Tebow playing alongside Tiger in the tournament, according to a report from Brian Hewitt of GlobalGolfPost.com:
A highly placed source at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am confirmed Thursday that the tournament is strongly considering issuing an invitation to Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow. The source also told Global Golf Post that if Tebow accepts, the tournament’s first choice as a partner for Tebow will be Tiger Woods.
Brian Wacker of PGATour.com spoke with an official involved in the event, who confirmed a spot is reserved for Tebow if he wants it. However, he will not be partnered with Tiger, who will likely team up with Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. There’s still the possibility of Tiger playing in the same group as Tebow (and PGA Tour player X), though.
Sounds like both a nightmare and the greatest thing in the world (or maybe the greatest nightmare?), but I’ll go with the latter for entertainment value. Plus, it’d be interesting to watch two guys who couldn’t be further away on opposite sides of the “moral” spectrum in the sporting world.
Obviously Tebow’s currently focused on leading the Denver Broncos to a win over the New England Patriots in the AFC divisional playoff game. Even if Tebow (and the Broncos( were to make it all the way to the Super Bowl, it wouldn’t conflict with the Pebble Beach tourney because it takes places the week after the game.
Not that it matters since Tebow’s season is ending on Saturday — a reliable source told me God is taking the day off.
