Pebble Beach Pro-Am Hoping For Tiger-Tebow Mania

What do you get when you combine Tebowing with a Tiger Woods fist pump?

A dream match-up with two of the most polarizing sports figures in recent history and all the mania anyone could ask for.

This is exactly the kind of hype the organizers of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am are hoping to create for their upcoming event.

Brian Hewitt of GlobalGolfPost reported that a highly placed source at the tournament said organizers want to pair Tiger Woods with Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow at the event which tees off the week after the Super Bowl.

According to the report, the tournament is considering offering an invitation to Tebow and— if he accepts— the organizers first choice as partner for him would be Woods.

Let the comparisons begin— yin and yang, saint and sinner or John and Paul (The Beatles, not the saints).

Woods recently confirmed that he will make his tour 2012 PGA tour debut in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.  It would be his first Pro-Am since 2002.

Early speculation had Woods pairing up with Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo.  See ya Tony.

The pairing sounds like a promoter's dream but there are a few obstacles to hurdle first.

Both Tebow and Woods would have to agree to the pairing and Tebow still would have to accept the invite.

Secondly, the Broncos are getting ready to face the New England Patriots in an AFC divisional playoff game on Saturday and— however far-fetched— the Super Bowl is still a possibility.

If the Tebow-led Broncos upset the Patriots, only a few things are certain.

It's a sure thing Tebow-mania will reach a fever pitch and the AT&T organizers will be sending the Mile High Messiah an invite on the hands of angels.

But then there's still that offer from Saturday Night Live.

There wouldn't be a scheduling conflict because the Pebble Beach event tees off the week after the Feb. 5 Super Bowl.

Let's get ready to Fist-Bow.
