All hail Tiger Woods!
 
2003-02-16 08:53:30 PM  
Amazing.
 
2003-02-16 08:53:35 PM  
Tiger is an OK golfer, I guess.
 
2003-02-16 08:53:44 PM  
I guess Phil was wrong about the equipment and the man.I'm impressed.
 
2003-02-16 08:53:59 PM  
My mother said
I never should
play with a Tiger
in the Wood . . .
 
2003-02-16 08:54:00 PM  
Is golf considered a sport now?
 
2003-02-16 08:54:19 PM  
how long before a "hero? hardly! he hits a ball into a hole with a stick" post shows up?
 
2003-02-16 08:54:39 PM  
He hath risen!
 
2003-02-16 08:55:03 PM  
isn't it more like:

Tiger Woods: 2732 Mortals: 0
 
2003-02-16 08:55:21 PM  
Tiger Woods is God. I mean, the God of golfing.

Whatever, he bangs supermodels.
 
2003-02-16 08:57:00 PM  
wish i could bang supermodels and make millions for hitting little balls around a field.
 
2003-02-16 08:57:17 PM  
Tiger Woods y'all,
Tiger Woods y'all,
It's all good y'all, Tiger Woods y'all,
It's all good y'all, Tiger Woods y'all,
It's all good y'all, I drink champagne when I hustle,
I drink champagne with Nipsey Russell,
Tiger Woods y'all, it's all good y'all...

2003-02-16 08:59:23 PM  
he's growin the fro out, did you see that?
 
2003-02-16 08:59:29 PM  
If it's called "The $4.5 million Buick Invitational" why did he only get $810,000?

That's a lot of money, but it's not $4.5 million.
 
2003-02-16 08:59:35 PM  
I want TWO p'ir,
Gim' me TWO p'ir,

2003-02-16 08:59:43 PM  
So the Mortals are winning? This is golf after all.
 
2003-02-16 09:03:06 PM  
this could just be my moronicness talking but... when will the golfing madness end.. this "sport" is so... how do you say it... hmm... i'll think of something
 
2003-02-16 09:04:09 PM  
What do you call 50 white men chasing 1 black man????

The PGA
 
2003-02-16 09:05:50 PM  
For the people who think golf is only about hitting a ball in hole, how come you're not rich, if it's so easy? Try golf once, and you will understand that it's a sport.
 
2003-02-16 09:07:38 PM  
Golf is the shizzle, and tiger woods is the shizzle of the shizzle.
 
2003-02-16 09:08:36 PM  
Never said golf was not a sport, I was just pointing out that Tiger makes millions for it, while janitors who spend thier days cleaning up little kids puke make barely a subsistance wage.
/wah wah wah
 
2003-02-16 09:09:41 PM  
Golf is the cure for insomnia

oh yeah, and buy some soap
 
2003-02-16 09:10:37 PM  
My wife and I might hit a bucket of balls once in a while,but it's all in good fun.
 
2003-02-16 09:10:41 PM

maybe they can clean up that river you're crying while they're at it...
 
2003-02-16 09:11:02 PM  
Tiger Tiger Tiger Tiger Tiger Woods yo...
 
2003-02-16 09:11:35 PM  
True, Feukulor, but no one wants to watch a janitor clean up little kids' puke. It's amazing what we'll do to fend off boredom in today's world...
 
2003-02-16 09:14:37 PM  
Hey, maybe in the future puke-cleaning will become the latest extreme sport.
 
2003-02-16 09:15:40 PM  
I bet the best part about today for Tiger was beating the crap out of Mickleson in their pairing. Good for him.
 
2003-02-16 09:15:47 PM  
I feel sorry for him. He has to make love to supermodels on top of piles of money.
 
2003-02-16 09:16:13 PM  
I'm an avid golfer and a huge Tiger fan.

But golf is not a sport.
 
2003-02-16 09:16:17 PM  
isnt it fun when you get 4.5mil in one days time. And he didnt even need to manipulate the stock market.
--kudos
 
2003-02-16 09:19:20 PM  
Anybody thought about what the hell this guy's gonna do when he retires? Play basketball?

Oh yeah, bang more supermodels.. forgot for a second.
 
2003-02-16 09:22:24 PM  
We need a tag something to the effect of 'who cares', or 'rats ass', or something. Golf, enjoyable to play, shiatty to watch, worse still to follow specific pros as if it actually means something. Feh.
 
2003-02-16 09:22:52 PM  
Fark Tiger Woods. Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Ben Hogan, or Bobby Jones in their prime could whoop his ass.
 
2003-02-16 09:23:45 PM  
I don't play golf myself, and I don't really ever want to. But Tiger Woods...boy, I like Tiger Woods. Know why? My grandfather happens to be an avid golfer and also a rather outspoken racist.

And nobody pisses him off as much as Tiger Woods.
 
2003-02-16 09:25:27 PM  
Now for the "My old rich white guy could whup your rich white guy's ass" flame war.
 
2003-02-16 09:25:39 PM

doh!
 
2003-02-16 09:31:49 PM  

Hey, Tiger made supermodels want to bang golfers. Okay, well, maybe just him.


And if golf's a sport, how come everyone who plays it except for Tiger and maybe Sergio Garcia is so farkin' fat?

 
2003-02-16 09:33:21 PM  
No, MONEY makes supermodels want to bang golfers.

GOLF SUCKS! IT ISN'T A SPORT!

(runs and hides)
 
2003-02-16 09:46:18 PM  
There's a fine line between Golf and standing by a fairway looking like an idiot.
 
2003-02-16 09:53:03 PM  
There is no other word for Tiger Woods except amazing. He wasn't even completely on top of his game today, and it was spectacular to watch. When he is on he's invincible on the course.

Anyone who says golf isn't a sport has no clue what the game involves at the professional level. I've played in many tournaments (I'm a 2 handicap) and I've even played with a few professionals at some charity events. Want to know why Tiger is so incedible? For most players, golf is 90% mental and 10% physical. For Tiger, it's almost 50/50. He's developed his body to be in perfect harmony with his swing and it shows on the course. I remember back in his early days when he would develop so much momentum in his swing, he would completely recoil after the follow-through. It's just become beautiful to watch.

Sure, there are a few out of shape golfers. They rely more on brute force to get the ball going. Tiger has found a way to combine that brute force with finess. Incredible.

Okay..I'm done.
"It's a game that can't be won, only played."

For anybody that cares, the $4.5 million is just the total prize money. It gets divided up among all the golfers that made the cut.

In tennis, Anna Kournikova just pulled out of a tournament due to injury. When she comes back, she will lose just as horribly as she always has.

Golf probably isn't a sport to most people but it is a sport to people like Tiger Woods and Garcia and others in the top ten. That they treat it as such is why they dominate.

is there supposed to be a correlation between your two paragraphs or are you just rambling?
