(ESPN)   What about the guy who finished 38th? Can we get three paragraphs about him too?   (espn.com) divider line

I mean, we would have gotten zero paragraphs about a UK version of a par 3 tournament otherwise. Been a pretty good season so far, and hopefully the UK feed of the Open won't be so Tiger centric. Unless he makes the cut at least. I don't mind somewhat humble Tiger TBF, tho he has a way to go yet.

The guy who finished 38th was behind 37 competitors. In a row?

I mean if the guy in even 24th becomes a top 3 or 5 golfer all time and bangs or bangs more Shoney's waitresses than the rest of Viriginia state, then I'll click on an article about him too

Because, subby, people watch for Tiger.  He's not any good since he destroyed his leg and it's highly unlikely he'll ever win or even contend again, but he brings in the eyeballs.  A lot of 'em.  Tournaments with Tiger get like double the ratings of anything else.

And speaking for myself, you know how many golf tournaments I've watched since Tiger was injured that did not involve Tiger?  Literally one.  The 2021 PGA that Phil won.  That's it.

/Without tiger this pro-am would've gotten zero words total.  It's a, as Tiger calls them, 'hit and giggle'.  It's not an official tournament, it's not sponsored by the PGA, it doesn't give ranking points, and you can use a cart (which Tiger did).

Thorbjørn Olesen, despite being literally named Thor Bear as if destined to be a rock star or a pro wrestler, chose to play one of the softest sports.  As a golfer he wielded only a seven iron and not a mighty mythic hammer.

One day the bear played against an aging tiger who once ruled all the land.  People came from far and wide to see the tiger even though he had lost most of his teeth and his ability to drive an SUV safely.  The tiger and the bear played golf all day but never saw the shark, who was busy spending blood money with his new school of fish.  The tiger and the bear played with local white businessmen with good enough connections to score a ProAm slot, and engaged in forced conversation while occasionally hitting the ball indifferently.

In the end the bear hit the ball slightly fewer times while pretending to care, and the tiger limped off wondering what might have been if he hadn't been addicted to boysenberry syrup and forced to go to iHop instead of hunting the golden bear like he started out.

Happy subby?

It will be interesting to see how he does in the Open. Nearly half of his major wins have taken place at Augusta National or St. Andrews.

Top 3 or 5? I guess you could make an argument for Tiger being behind Jack without me thinking you have brain damage. I wouldn't agree, but I wouldn't be worried about your physical safety without a helmet either. The US Open where he was -12 and second place was +3 was a top 5 dominant performance of the entire sporting century.

What's funny is I put Top 3/5 to be safe to avoid people arguing over it instead of just saying best and top 2 since top 3 includes everything. Personally, I have him at 2 behind Jack but some people love Palmer/Snead/Hogan. I just wanted to make a Shoney's joke
