I used to be a hater just because. I found myself pulling for him yesterday. He never collapsed and played well. I hope he get's another major.

Golf needs more hookers and beer.

So, no, Tiger may not "dominate" as in the old days, but his game will play just fine with any of these guys, and his mental toughness is showing more and more signs of the old "killer" mode. I think he will do a lot better than play "competitive."
...u nailed it!!!

Yes, Tiger gets a lot of on air coverage but I think there is something being overlooked by his detractors as to the "why" he gets it. A lot more everyday people can relate to Tiger's game because he is all over the golf course. He's hitting a lot more shots from where average fans do than say a Jordan Speith or Justin Thomas whose games can seem boring at times to fans who are not necessarily students of the game.


That 64 yesterday, from where he was finding himself off the tee, was exciting to watch and extraordinary at the same time. Under the pressure of a major with a strong group of players at the top of leaderboard and unable to drive worth a ****, he somehow shot 6 under on a Sunday course set up. All PGA tour players play competitive golf. That was championship caliber golf, regardless the final outcome.

Great player. Great for golf. Just read the latest book about him. Terrible person, terrible husband, terrible friend. Uses people then discards them when he feels they are no longer an asset to him. It is estimated that he cheated on his wife with between 100-120 different women. Loser with a capital “L”. That is why I will never cheer for him again.

I just turn it off and do something else.
Do you realize he is chasing history???

All they have to do is be in contention. What exactly have "those " guys accomplished?

Absolutely. And not one of them will ever get my vote if I am aware of their deeds. Too many good character players on tour to ever cheer for a bad character.

How so you know anything in that book is true? Lots of fake news out there.

I'm like you. I can't separate the athlete/musician/actor from his or her personal life.
