The US Men's National Soccer Team continued to prepare for, and build national buzz about, next week's World Cup in Brazil. Their promo tour took them to TPC Sawgrass on Friday (home of the Player's Championship) where they all got to test their skills on the famed 17th green.



These guys are just living the life right now...as they should. It's going to be a quick trip to Brazil for the USMNT as they will play their three group games and then they will be headed home (and head coach Jurgen Klinsmann will be fired and shipped back to Germany to lick his wounds). Get your attention while you can.

The US viewing public will only care about this event if the American team is able to advance past the group stage...not gonna happen.

BTW...I hope the players got to take more than one swing on the 17th when they were there. Do a survey on one hole that every non-golfer wants to play and 90% of the responders are going to say 17th at Sawgrass. It would suck to only get one swing and totally blow it and not even reach the water.
