Tiger's Departure Changes Masters outlook - It's YOUR Business

by Mark Brown

The Golf Experts with an orthopedic surgeon and a 30-plus year Chiropractor are back at it this morning in the wake of the news that Tiger Woods will miss his first Master's since turning pro. Dave Austad opens store 10, Adam Scott schedules weekend tournament without snow and trip to Masters, Paul Doherty -- Golf ETC -- explains how he doctors what's in your golf bag, Randy Derheim discusses Golf Life without our leader.

That's all the plots heardin the 9-10 It's YOUR Business Golf Show this morning.

Both Dr. Max Reinecke, Reinecke Chiropractic and Dr. Tim LeeBurton--Speciality Orthopedic continued weighing in on the injuries to Tiger Woods and other pros in what has become the most unusual season for withdrawals in years.

Dr. Max and Dr. Tim have been suggesting that Tiger would have to stop playing undergo treatment and then recover. In essence, the projections had Woods as a non-factor for most of 2014; despite the protests of television analysis that need to show Woods doing anything. Then when they went to Phil Mickelson, he withdrew in the middle of a round like Woods with his daughter consoling him as he came off the course.

Dr. Max has a series on bad body parts, nerve troubles, and backs what they can do to your game or exercise patterns. While he was on the air in break this morning, a caller needed his call information. Dr. Max obliged.

Dave Austad is on the road in Eastern Iowa. Not far from where I started college 50 years ago at the University of Iowa. For Austad, he'll be opening his 10th store in Cedar Rapids--not far from Zach Johnson's home.

Adam Scott, Golf Addiction can read the weather forecast for 40's and maybe 50 this weekend. He has a tournament at Golf Addiction at 57th and Marian. Call and get involved. In addiction he and his partner John Millerhead to Augusta early Sundayto be part of the Master's practice rounds. They'll talk with us next week about their experience from Magnolia Lane. Oh for the Master's, Golf Addiction is taking reservations , so you can watch the first Major of the season and play one of the 50 simulated golf courses.

Paul Doherty, Golf Etc., has become the doctor of club examinations. He has been working with Project -one, on what's in his bag. He found great clubs; just not suited to a man in his 50's.Mr. Doherty has worked with more than a thousand clients on what isin theirgolf bag. He can do the same for you in 2014.

Randy Derheim, Pinnacle, Callaways, Elements on 8th, Foleys, and Tre puts golf and life in the same sentence. Perfect for this show; Golf without your leader. The avid golfer, restaurant expert is also an author SHE SAID ONE. The winner of our fantasy golf last week was not any of the regulars in the 2nd year of the show. Derheim won the week before, Austad has a win, Scott a win, and host ZortSD a victory as well.

Derheim added to it this morning and said without Tiger or Phil; he'll play golf instead of watch it -- and promises (probably in jest) to write PGA Commissioner Tim Finchem and rant a little.
