Dear God, Tiger's killed again, hasn't he?

I'm trying to figure out a way to make that headline a little more clever, but I'm coming up with zilch. So I think I'm going to go eat a taco.

Dude, she's 13.

Oh wait.. golf.

Tiger now has more greens than I do.

So much for that "new baby's gone and wrecked his game" theory.

And the really scary thing is that if anyone was paying attention on Friday, you didn't even need to watch the weekend. The man is just unstoppable. But everyone already knew that.

IIRC, Tiger is one of the few advocates for drug testing in Golf. So I doubt it, but I guess you never know, sports today being what they are.

And now Tulsa regains its status as the least exciting city in America. Sigh.

So on Wednesday when my buddy and I were snapping pictures at the putting green, I lean over and say:

What a boring weekend of golf.

Tiger was so in control of his game, he aimed for the middle of the green for his last 36 holes. And I would guess he hit within a few feet of where he was aiming 95% of the time.

Absolultely astonshing and dominating. There's no way he could be beat, by anyone, from anytime, from anywhere.

/I watched all of it.

mybulkaddress Get outta here. No asterisks, that I or anyone else can see. Tiger's been a phenomenon since the age of two, and his body actually looks slimmer than it did a couple of years ago. Give the guy his due.

What's amazing is that for anybody else to have a chance, Tiger can't play any better than C+ golf. This was just like last year's British at Hoylake when Tiger just showed he's a better ball-striker than anybody else in the world.

I'm sure if he wanted to, he could have gone out and shot 65 today and blown everybody's doors off. When he needed a birdie at 15, he got one, and followed it with his best drive of the week at 16 which effectively ended everybody's chances.

Cold-blooded.

It's nice to see Ernie performing on the big stage once again, too.

Tiger was really pretty ho-hum today, and most of yesterday. Not to say that he wasn't playing great golf, but he certainly wasn't "on fire". Woody and Ernie really both played better today than Tiger. The thing is, you have to put together 4 straight days of that kinda golf.

The scary thing about Tiger is not that he plays lights-out golf every round, but that he's so consistently good. His mental game is just so superior to anyone else out there. He's going to win 20 by 40, and I'm just grateful to be around to see it.

Tiger Woods and Roger Federer...two people who are so on top of their sport that dominance doesn't even begin to cover it...

Not a great example of Roger's dominance.

Dear Tiger,


You are at the top of your game. You have nowhere to go but down. I suggest you retire to stud and produce (more) Li'l Tigers. Coolmore would probably be glad to have you.

Love and kisses,

Scary thing was the list of golfers who made the cut in every major, and their overall score.

Tiger was -1.

Next closest was +15.

That's just unreal.

Didn't Roger Federererer just get beat in 3 straight sets by some dude this weekend?

Despite his recent... attendance issues, you have to include Asashoryu in that list too.

Just like Jordan, Gretzky, Montana, Nicklaus etc. at some point someone will step up and bring Tiger back to earth. It's only a matter of time.

kpottruff: someone will step up and bring Tiger back to earth.

you mean father time? Because if you're waiting on age to slow down Tiger, it's going to be a wait.

kpottruff, Cakeboy Even the greats have a bad day or a bad season. Competing at that level wreaks havoc on your body.

Watching Tiger or Roger on a great day reminds me of why they are great. And why I love true athletes and hate Barry Bonds* and every cyclist*.

I wonder if Tiger will make Nicklaus's record. It's more competitive out there. He's already had surgery on his joints.

Oh well, if all else fails - he has a red-hot wife and more money than he can spend.
 
2007-08-13 05:24:12 AM  
ok whyteraven74 and Fie you make good points but there are examples of what I am talking about. I will skip Jordan because I am not a basketball fan.

In the NHL Sidney Crosby is rapidly showing that breaking many of Gretzkys records in junior hockey wasn't a fluke.

In the NFL can you not make a case of Peyton Manning or Tom Brady being better qb's than Joe Montana?

Jack Nicklaus and Tiger? to this point in his career Tiger is proving it of course.

More NFL Walter Payton was the greatest until there was Emmit Smith... Soon enough we will have Ladanian Tomlinson.

Or even the pretend sport of wrestling... Hulk Hogan was the face of a generation and brought the WWF into contemporary culture. A decade later 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin became the most lucrative draw for Vince 'I died in a fire' McMahon. Take this one in a business context... As performers who was most effective at his prime in generating fan intrest?

Heck in baseball at one time Babe Ruth was the greatest and in time got passed as the home run king by Hank Aaron, and no let's not open the Barry(+/- *) saga.

Tiger is a special player no one is doubting that but within 10 years it is more likely than not that someone is going to be the dominant golfer in the PGA.

Enrico Pallazzo: I love that movie

Not at this level, and not for a long time.

For fairness to competition, Tiger should start each tournament at +6.

The most incredible thing to see on Sunday was how Tiger all of a sudden turned it on. He was kind of ho-humming around the course for the first 13 holes and then bogeyed 14. He looked at the leader board, saw that there were a couple of guys within two strokes and decided that he should probably do something about that. So, he goes and crushes a drive straight down the heart and nails the coffin shut with a birdie.

It's almost as if he wanted to spot Els and the crazy guy a couple of strokes to make things interesting on the back nine.

That little twirl of the club after a great drive is both incredibly cool and sickening at the same time. "Yes, I am Tiger Woods and I am better than you."

kommisarrex: That little twirl of the club after a great drive is both incredibly cool and sickening at the same time. "Yes, I am Tiger Woods and I am better than you."

The funny thing is that I do the same thing (albeit I can't say I'm able to nearly as often). It's kind of a natural extension of the golf swing. If I were to try and tell you how to do it, I couldn't. Likewise, I also involuntarily do the motorcycle-kick after bombing a drive.

Tiger will not be brought back to earth. Nicklaus was never brought back to earth. Singh gave it a shot, so did Mickelson. It's just not going to happen. Not until Tiger has already broken Jack's record.
 
2007-08-13 12:23:46 PM  
Tiger had a slump a couple of years ago, and Vijay Singh was indeed the best golfer in the world for, what was it, six months?

It's almost as if Tiger got bored.

He's back, and he's the best. Damn, he's a machine. And he's got a hot wife. And he named his daughter Samantha, just like my daughter. And he's a soon-to-be billionaire. And HE'S NOW.

I think I love him?
 
2007-08-13 12:59:50 PM  
Tiger is a once in a generation athlete, and on top of it all, a model athlete. He doesn't get in trouble, he doesn't run his mouth, he simply wins. He doesn't run his mouth about his competition (I'm looking at you, you rat-faced fark Rory Sabbatini), he doesn't boast his accomplishments. He simply wins.

/I think I have a man-crush. Not really, but I do admire Tiger a lot.

It's only fair to point out that Jack actually has 20 total "majors" to Tiger's 16......Jack had 18 PROFESSIONAL majors, and Tiger only has 13, but until Tiger won the '97 Masters they always counted U.S. Ams. as "majors" (going back to the days of Bob Jones)

I've got a bunch of golf magazine/digest published before June of 1997 and Jack always had "20 majors" in all of them.

FWIW

/Tiger's a freakin' stud
