Well, for all those Tiger fans, time to stick a fork in him:

1st five holes:
Bogey
Bogey
Double Bogey
Par (yay !)
Bogey

No OBs, no water balls, no short game.
Now 9 over for the tournament and totally out of the picture. Looks like if he could walk off he would.

All the talking head's seemed ready give him the cup on Friday. Funny watching them eat crow now.

I'm sick of the Tiger is back hype. He did well but he just can't handle the pressure anymore. He will go down as one the all time greats but his time seems to have passed. I don't think golf needs him like they once did either. You have young guys like Ricky Fowler and Rory Mcilroy that kids these days can look up to. He was fun to watch in his prime but now it is time to focus on these other guys. I was thankful NBC didn't show him every time he took a shot today.

Well, nothing exceeds like excess. When Tiger was riding high, watching golf on TV was kind of boring, since it was essentially "Tigervision". Even if he was 3 or 4 behind, he'd be almost the only one on camera "because you never know what he might do". Not so much now.

To be fair, he did get it back to +7 from +9, so after the first 6 holes he played pretty well. But on that course you simply have to hit the fairway and have a decent short game. He didn't on the weekend.

Maybe he really needed all these women to handle the "pressure" ?

Tiger fan or not, many of you might find this commentary on the media slavering over the "return of Tiger" fairly amusing:

TV in particular, but the print press as well, made themselves look like fools.

To be fair, Butch Harmon did say on Saturday on Sky coverage that "Today is going to be the day we find out if Tiger is ready for this." And he wasn't...

I am a huge Tiger fan and I believe that he will beat Jack's record... But I agree, the media frenzy is just ridiculous.

Yeah, Sunday was a pleasure - "Tiger-free TV" after he started out so badly. I think maybe the networks are finally starting to figure out we don't need to watch every shot this has-been takes when he's out of contention. Time to get the viewers interested in the young guns who will need to be the draw in the future. And the future starts now. Tiger played the game at a level no one's ever seen before when he was in his prime, but he's the oldest 36 year old I've ever seen (for an athlete that is) and his skills are diminished. He's not done, but he'll never dominate like he did before so let's all move on.

Maybe its the optimist in me but I really think he has one last small run left in him. Im not saying Grand Slam but i can see him taking a few tourneys and maybe 2 more majors (He will win the Masters again) in one calendar year. Will he ultimately get the record, I doubt it; but as far as his play is now I'd say its 98% mental IMO. IF he can get his head right I still think he has the physical ability (although rapidly declining) to go on such a run.

How about Westwood's ball getting stuck in a tree?! I was pulling for him too...

Tiger Woods will win a major again. Trust. He's only 37. We'll see how he performs in his first year on Senior Tour. Be well and stay put, Tiger!
