Of all the historic layouts the premier players in the world navigate each season, Riviera Country Club, just outside Los Angeles, easily belongs in the top echelon.
Everybody, it seems, has won there except Tiger Woods, and now it's fair to ask: Will he ever?
He certainly won't if he doesn't play, and that became official on Friday when Woods, competing this week in Dubai, failed to enter the Northern Trust Open for the fifth year in a row.
Woods is making a mistake. Riviera is one of the PGA Tour's signature events. It was Riviera back in 1992 which gave Woods, then 16, a sponsor's exemption to tee it up with the pros for the first time. So how does he show his gratitude? By not playing, that's how.
The tournament will do fine without him. Phil Mickelson will compete and so will Ernie Els and Fred Couples, and a lot of the best pros.

Oh yeah, Gabriella Sabatini was one sweet tennis player and a fine piece of white Italian a$$. Ole Tig would have loved her back in the day.
Today's purchasing managers are not stupid. They see nat. gas prices going down and they jump on board for PVC and compound price reductions at once.
This is abdication. If you are willing to let some outsiders in to do the job that should be YOUR responsibility, then it's time to pack it up.
Today's premium golf balls have thin multi-layer covers that include Surlyn. They fly straighter, farther, and are much more durable than former designs. These balls command a premium price and have sold like hotcakes to eager golfers.
If Invision is to be an automotive parallel, the automakers must be willing to pay the price for this patented technology. Don't count on it!
The US Big Three will never adopt anything that cannot be provided by multi-sources who can then can be pitted against each other for annual price reductions. And the boys in Japan, Korea and now China will engineer around your patent before you finish your 2nd cup of coffee and start actual work at 10AM.
Don't count on it. Even if you do sell $1B, the auto companies will let you make 2% operating profit and then ask for a 4% price reduction for the next year.
