Cardinals' Garcia placed on DL

Jaime Garcia's strained ground will require a DL stint, St. Louis announced today. The Cards' starter had a 1.69 ERA in 7 starts this season.

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

With "average" putting, would Tiger have won? Nope. Strokes gained-putting was -1.025 cumulative. Would've only picked up one shot on field.

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

Let’s remember: Two of Tiger’s previous four rounds hadn’t broken 80. Cautious optimism was the theme this week. Should be at The Open, too.

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

OK, so Tiger’s putter was ice cold this weekend. That’s fixable. With a few exceptions, his swing looked smooth and fluid. That’s better.
