The two guys I wished they'd picked for the Ryder Cup

Former PGA Champion Shaun Micheel and former British Open Chamption Ben Curtis have both enjoyed a return to form this summer, with Curtis winning the Booz Allen, Micheel the runner-up at Medinah, and both are poised for victory this weekend, with Micheel in the match play finals and Curtis leading the 84 Lumber Classic.

After reading this about the death of his friend Spencer, I wonder whether Micheel has some supernatural backing out on the course this week. (It doesn't look like he'll win this week, but it was memorable nonetheless, as he beat Tiger Woods in the first round.)

For Curtis, this week was to be the last his wife was going to be with him on tour before their first child is due later this month. Instead, she's at home, and he says if he gets the call that the baby is coming, he'll hit the road back to Ohio.
