If anyone did bet on Tiger, at least they don't have to sweat it out all weekend.

Tiger doesn't have a back problem. He has the "yips", with every club in his bag. He is scared to hit a golf ball. It's very obvious.

The guys on TV are smart enough to know this, but they can't call him out (so they went along with the "back" excuse, although they did drop a few hints).

Tiger needs a shrink, not a swing coach.

He certainly has the yips when it comes to putting and chipping and I wouldn't rule out steroids. Changing instructors hasn't gotten the desired results. He should have stayed with Butch Harmon and never changed his winning swing.

Before this past weekend, but after Phoenix, I made bets with two different individuals that Tiger wouldn't win another major in the next five years, through the 2019 season. I'm liking my bet now, hell he may never win another PGA tour event.

Maybe Elin's 9 iron took a divot out of Tiger's brain.

Yes, even money.

I'm tempted to offer the same bet (no wins in the next five years) on ANY pga tour event, but will need some odds and can't get my arms around a price

I'm not a golfer, but continue to be amazed by the fall of Tiger Woods. Has there ever been a sports figure as successful & talented as Woods & then fallen as far as him because of a divorce or other similar situation? It's like Mickey Mantle going without a home run for a season because he got caught cheating and divorced during the off season.

Tiger has gone from top of the heap to middle of the road over night. He isn't as good as he used to be. Because of a divorce? Divorce is tough, but he certainly isn't the first.

So any other athlete lost his talent over night because of a divorce or similar situation?



Not really, but Mike Tyson comes to mind after he had a sudden urge to snack.................

I don't think Tyson's fall from grace was due to snacking, although that may have played a part in it. Him going to jail for 3 years in the prime of his career is what did him in. He still was good when he came out but never was the same athlete again.
