YellowLamborghini(Stuart Appleby): Glad they got another sponsor for Kapalua. I can't afford tolose that annuity.

GEE-OFF (GeoffOgilvy): Why is a Korean television network broadcasting a Tour event? Hopingto platform their U.S. brand?

iWENTtoDUKE (JoeOgilvie): Brother, their checks will be just as liquid as Mercedes'. Just nocar for the winner. But the C-series depreciates 54% the minute you takedelivery anyway.

ForeRIGHT (TigerWoods): I still won't play.

ExPGA_JohnDaly(John Daly): Hey boys, I can almost smell the chain restaurants and exhaustfumes on A1A. Wish I was there—hawking crap.

Cheeseheadforlife(Jerry Kelly)@ExPGA_JohnDaly: Long John, caught those round 2 slacks on GolfChannel. Did Charo design those for you, big guy?

stewartcink(Stewart Cink): So nice to see my peers joining Twitter. Anyone else have169,000 followers? Tiger? Anyone? Didn't think so.

ForeRIGHT@stewartcink: True Cinky. I don't have the spare time for that kind ofstuff or to sit through things like Tour policy board meetings.

stewartcink@ForeRIGHT: They are tedious. Especially since we spend most of ourtime trying to figure out how to get you to play more often.

i.look.goodINwhiteBELTS (Phil Mickelson): Sounds like Tiger and I won't have toworry about adding any events next year.

TrueTemperMan(Pat Perez): I just tore up my Marquis Jet card.

ilookgoodINwhiteBELTS@TrueTemperMan: What's a Marquis Jet card? If you don'town, you might as well fly commercial.;)

LineDancer(Justin Leonard): Honey, have you gotten to the outlet mall yet? Stick to thesale racks at the Louis V store. Happy Mothers Day!

IMGWhippingBOY(Anthony Kim): Maybe I should have joined the European tour full time?
