    Merion Golf Club is in a super conservative, old-school, blue blood neighborhood. Tiger (allegedly) rented a local home adjacent to the course for $100,000. He had the owners remove their furniture so he could move in his own. He has given the owners the option of keeping the furniture after the tournament. Some of the neighbors must feel like Johnny Rebel.

    I don't buy that he wanted all the furniture out so that he could bring in his own. He isn't spending that much time on a place he's staying for a week.

    Tiger is not stay in a hotel. They are no hotels near the course, it's in a residential area. He wants a house next to the course so he doesn't have to travel. Many golfers are renting homes near the course. The owners have been planning to make them available for years. Even to a wealthy Main Line individual $100,000 for one week is great money. There is also ego involved that Tiger stayed in my home. The owners take a vacation in Europe for week paid for by Tiger.

    Merion is about 20 minutes from me. Most of the players rent out private homes. There aren't really any hotels nearby. Some residents who remained in the area are renting out their driveways/front lawns as parking lots. Of course, there's a monsoon outside currently, and play has been suspended.
