Rory: Not Talking to the Media

Rory Sabbatini is done talking to the media. Ironically, he told AP's Doug Ferguson that in this write up from Hawaii.

"I'm done talking to you guys," he said.

Approached a few minutes later at his locker, Sabbatini said, "I have nothing to say."

Ferguson is fair in his assessment of Sabbatini, though.

Sabbatini wasn't the least bit rude in declining to speak. He appears to be in good spirits, and he has spent a half-hour or so after his rounds to sign autographs, exchanging pleasantries with the gallery.

How long Sabbatini will be on mute remains to be seen, and it probably won't matter unless he plays well. Considering how his last year went, not speaking might not be the worst idea.

Sabbatini feels as though he was taken out of context, and there's some truth to that.

Rory may have diarrhea of the mouth, but cleaning that up may improve his image. Perhaps it is his 2008 resolution to let his clubs do the talking. Some insight into that from the man himself:

Not even [a comment] about his change in golf equipment?

"I'll let my clubs do the talking," he said.
