Caught sleeping behind the wheel at 3AM, claims on meds, that he wasn't drinking.  Yeah, right, sure, except....his announced blood alcohol content was reported today as .000.   So, TMZ sure got it wrong about refusing a Breathalyzer.  This is all so odd.

oh, and as to ESPN.  It seems like it has been run by Disney teens for about a decade.  No one would have seen Tiger's pic on any other 'news' publication.  :facepalm:

What a gorgeous course. I've never seen Erin Hills before.

Also, having Holly Sonders on FS1 doesn't hurt the broadcast either.

First off, Holly Sonders used to be so much more amazing looking when on the Golf Channel. She looked like the most amazing specimen of woman you could run into in public, at your local gym. Now she looks fake and unnatural. But like 3 years ago, I might have actually killed another human to have her.

Erin Hills looks amazing! All the guys are saying it's the best condition they've ever seen a championship course. There's been no one on it since October! I'm hoping the winds pick up and the course get a little firmer and faster. Regardless of the scores (way to go Rickie!), it didn't look like watching a US Open. I wanna see bigger bounces, more rollout, and LESS control.

What an amazing final six holes by Spieth to win The Open !!!! 

Very good round by Kucher, who certainly held his own.  And here was Lin on the practice range while they were on 13, thinking there was the possibility of a playoff (and for good reason at the time).

My only notable golf story: I used a 9 iron to hit the ball over a pond, but instead of going up and over, it went straight across... Into a duck, breaking its neck. The poor thing want flopping around, and all its buddies swam over to it to see what the matter was. I felt terrible.

On a more positive note, I recently got a hole in one playing miniature golf. :D

Will Woods win his first tourney in five years?  He has a shot today.

I will admit that, even though I do not root for him, Woods being back in contention does make things more interesting.

Chad, he didn't make the hill and it rolled back.  His first shot was killer.  It's his second shot is the shot that truly failed him but if he 2 putted, he gets to a playoff.

Yeah. Id think its a near guarantee they had the best ratings in years today. I like rooting for Woods. Could care less about how big a dick he is....and by all accounts hes a dick....but love to watch him play golf. He had a shot today for sure. I think he may win a tourney or two this year. Needs (4) wine to become the all time win leader  He has (79), Snead has (82). Thats more impressive to me than the majors.

Gary. He's a dick that likes sharing his dick.

But he's a really great golfer that single handedly changed the sport of golf forever. Watching him utterly dominate for a decade was fun. The $$$ these guys are winning these days is ALL due to Tiger Woods and what he did for the sport. The level of play these guys are playing at these days is ALL because of Tiger. Outside of Gretzky...there isn't another sports figure out there who changed the face of his sport....and I'd argue that Tiger changed Golf way more than Gretzky did hockey.

Too bad he's a friggin A-Hole

Incorrect.  I had a stats teacher who did a fun analysis, and proved with graphs that '95% of all putts that are short do not go in'.   It has to deal with percentages of times there's a witness or not ;)

My wife paid our way to three tourneys to see Tiger (and Phil).  What the man did was amazing plus.  I pulled for him, because I was watching history being made.  Mr. Clutch.  Now.......well, it was interesting to watch today.  But the days of cheering for him are long past.  I'm no saint, but he built up his image and empire as such a 'holier than thou' persona.  If it makes sense, I'd forgive and mostly forget if it was John Daly.  Can't do it with Woods.

I'll take your word for it that Jeff Gordon changed racing though.

I'm no NASCAR fan. It's just the big paydays really coincided with his time, as it did with Tiger.

I watch ALL the golf, but that was the most engaged and excited I've been while watching in a long time! I think golf fans are in for a real treat this year.

And I think the opinions you guys have of Tiger as a person are waaaayyyy off base. I guess part of me can see how those opinions might form, but only to people on the outside that don't pay very close attention. Let's not mistake some of his habits in regards to dealing with the media as a full picture of who he is. I also wouldn't, even in his pre-scandal days, agree that he's portrayed himself as "holier than thou". The only image Tiger ever pushed was the one on the golf course. Everything else is just a product of our obsession to know more about a guy that wouldn't give us ANYTHING... so we tried to fill in the blanks for the rest of the story, and WE were wrong. That's our fault...

We were wrong that he cheated on his wife and pork the whole world? :lol

He's fucking Tiger Woods and he's porking some waitress in a car at some flapjack joint.  That's not misleading.

BTW, I want him to win.  He's great for the game.  No on has truly took over the mantle as a great that can sustain what he did on the course for 2 decades.

I agree he changed the game... but he hasn't been relevant for 5+ years, and his 'fall from grace' started 10 years ago.  Basically, we're almost past the tipping point where the amount of time he was *the* guy is less than the time he's been (virtually) irrelevant - yet the golf media still felates over him any opportunity they can.

He was the biggest athlete in the world, on his way to over $1 billion in total pay. He, more so at that time I think, was surrounded by nothing but YES men trying to get their buck. Not only was he literally on top of the world, but apparently also a sex addict. That shouldn't be all that surprising from someone who is such a control freak, and also trying to keep his edge as "the guy on TOP of the world". On top of that, he didn't have exactly have an affair. The 14+ women made it very clear clear that it was just sex. All that taken into consideration, I would say that:
He's fucking Tiger Woods and he's porking some waitress in a car at some flapjack joint.
... is kinda misleading. I also don't think he's the same person he was a decade ago. I sure fucking hope he's grown in all that time, being a father, going thru hell with his physical and mental health. Tiger's a bro. He's gonna rip on you, and can take it when you rip on him. Take not on how other players don't say, "Man, Tiger's a real dick!"

I'm inclined to agree about the media aspect. They waste no opportunity to talk Tiger. But, as it's been said hundreds of times, and was on display this weekend seeing the crowds following him, Tiger doesn't move the needle, he IS the needle.

It is funny that his last relevant season was 2013. A lot of these young guys weren't on tour yet. They say things like, "I wish I could play with Tiger in his prime!" Be careful what you wish for, like Spieth who played with him in rds 1/2 and missed the cut on a course he won ok 2 years ago.

Sylvan, I'm a huge TW fan.....because I like watching him golf. But you can spend 10 minutes on the net and find legit stories about him and realize he's just not that nice. I thought of listing some of them but it's not really relevant.

I agree he changed the game... but he hasn't been relevant for 5+ years, and his 'fall from grace' started 10 years ago.  Basically, we're almost past the tipping point where the amount of time he was *the* guy is less than the time he's been (virtually) irrelevant - yet the golf media still felates over him any opportunity they can.

I get that Chad but this isn't like Peyton Manning declining in performance. Tiger made golf interesting and relevant and flat out inspired players like Speith, Fowler etc. to take the game to the next level. The talent that is on the PGA tour right now is the best it's ever been and it's all due to Tiger. As long as Tiger Woods is still playing golf the media is going to make him center stage...main story. Paul Casey won yesterday yet near every article on the web is 'Tiger misses by 1 stroke'. That's the story, not Paul Casey wins because who gives a  :censored about Paul Casey and his (2) PGA tour wins?

I can't imagine Tiger is playing much longer given his issues are back related and golf is brutal on one's back....but while he's healthy I'll root for the dude to win.



Just saw King's post:
BTW, when someone says Tiger is a dick, I think it's someone who wouldn't act like him.  There could be other descriptions but it's how a person feels that wouldn't cheat on his wife.

One example I read that has been corroborated:

Tiger and Zac Johnson were room mates when they were playing on the Ryder Cup team back when Tiger was Tiger. He (Tiger) knew that Zac was a devout Christian and thought it'd be funny to keep pRon running on every TV in their suite the whole time they were there. Even when approached by Johnson to cut the schtick TW refused.

Could have been a 'joke' or whatever but in my eyes it's a dick move. There are also COUNTLESS stories about how cheap he is with tipping etc., and given what happened to him and his career....sounds like the guy got what he deserved.


BUT...I do believe that Tiger is a different dude today than he was 10 years ago. You can see it and read about it. I think he's made some changes but just like before.....I'm personally not to concerned about that. If he has, then good for him. But I just like to watch him play golf and win.

It sucks for dieheard fans like my dad who love to watch golf and get annoyed how it gets turned into the Tiger Show, all for ratings and to appease the millions of "fans" who freely admit that they wouldn't give a crap about golf if Tiger wasn't there.

Personally, I like watching just to see him lose.

I find it kinda interesting that Tiger is the next President's Cup captain. I have to imagine that he believes he can make that team as a player. I'm not sure I would disagree. Time will tell what his health and game are gonna be like, but he has to think to himself and that he can still be at/near the top of the game.
