THE PLAYERS - Tim Clark's Tribute to Seve Ballesteros

It hardly seems like a year ago that Tim Clark turned the tables.

On May 9, 2010... exactly one year ago... Mr. Clark won THE PLAYERS Championship and silenced the snarky scribes, who would never again be able to refer to him as a bridesmaid extraordinaire.  In addition, at 5' 7" he proved... once and for all... that tall is indeed, overrated.

The man once referred to as the penguin became T-Cizzle and a multitude of newly minted fans clamored to join his proud posse... not only because he now had that elusive PGA Tour win but also because of the good-natured persistence and relentless perseverance he demonstrated leading up to it. >---->

2011 got off to a stellar start for Clark with a T2 finish in the Nedbank Challenge and a T9 in the South African Open.  He also finished in a tie for second at the PGA Tour's Sony Open, but it was there in the final round... as he was en route to a 62 for the day... that his elbow injury first made itself known.  Presumed to be tendinitis, it's kept him out of a number of events since, and the decision to defend his maiden PGA Tour title this week... something he very much wants to do... is still pending. According to's Brian Wacker it'll be a game-time call.

The one thing that is certain is that Tim Clark will be there, at TPC Sawgrass for the tournament and indeed, he's already making his presence felt.
