Taking a Knife to a Gunfight

Granny is unfortunately starting to have some senile dementia. But, after watching the WGC Match Play yesterday, she said to me, "He's really something, isn't he?"

I said, "Who? You mean DJ?" Granny nodded. She may be losing the plot a bit, but she still knows something special when she sees it.

Watching him now playing with Tanihara you again see, even when not firing on all cylinders, just how dominant he has become. After DJ hit it in the hazard only to drain another long putt for par--I can't recall what hole--and Tanihara made an unforced bogey to lose the hole, you could see Tanihara's shoulders start to slump.

For most players, playing DJ right now is like going to a gun fight with a knife. All you can reasonably hope for is that his gun jams. And the problem is, DJ seems to be sporting a pearl-handled six- shooter. And they don't jam.
