World Premiere Video: Serena Fills in For Tiger

04/10/2009 11:47 am ET | Updated May 25, 2011

My Facebook Friend Serena Williams is at it again. And besides Scrabble, I found something else I just might beat her at: Golf!

Gatorade gave me a sneak preview of Serena's video, which is part of their new video series "Focus on your Game: Golf Tips from Tiger." And now ... drum roll, please ... I will share it with you, dear readers!

When the title slide comes up, we are all expecting the T-man himself to come out and share some pointers about putting. But if you haven't noticed, he's pretty busy these days. Instead, Gatorade turned to some other athletes -- my BFF Serena, along with Eli Manning, LaDainian Tomlinson and Matt Kenseth -- to try their hand at golf, filling in for their buddy Tiger.

I will say, though, after a whopping 32 putts on Thursday at the Master's, which put Tiger in a tie for 83rd place in a 96-player field -- maybe he should take some pointers from Serena and the others. But knowing Tiger, he'll pull off some breathtaking, dramatic come-from-behind win that will leave us all with goosebumps and realizing just how much we missed him.

The next round of the Master's takes place today, Friday, April 10 at 4 p.m. EST (ESPN).

That said, I know what I'm doing this afternoon: guzzling some Gatorade Tiger Focus (which hydrates, and also promotes mental focus!) and settling in for an afternoon of Augusta. (I sure wish Manny Ramirez had downed some Tiger Focus for our interview last week!)

The rest of the Gatorade "Golf Tips from Tiger" videos will be unveiled soon, and there's plenty of other original content on missionG.com.
