The Monday Recap: Beware Flying Hot Dogs

So Tiger Woods returned to golf this past week, but the former world No. 1 was attacked on Sunday.

A fan threw a hot dog at Woods, while he was putting on the seventh green during the final round of the PGA Tour's Frys.com Open.

Now, while the act was deplorable and the offender was dealt with by security, Woods shouldn't take headline status away from Bryce Molder, Briny Baird or Rickie Fowler.

Molder and Baird went into a six-hole playoff, when Molder finally outlasted Baird.

Woods finished a distant tie for 30th, 10 shots behind, but showed life in his golf game with a third consecutive 68 to close out the tournament.

And Fowler finally shed the winless tag moniker with his first professional victory overseas against a solid field including reigning U.S. Open champ Rory McIlroy.

So while a spectator put Woods on top of several media outlets talking points on Monday, players like Molder, Baird and Fowler deserve the recognition instead.

Especially with Woods falling so far down in the world rankings and refusing to play any more Fall Series events in preparation for the President's Cup where he received a captain's pick from Fred Couples.

Woods, though, is scheduled to play the Australian Open as a precursor to next month's President's Cup.
