Oh No! Tiger Lost!

Maybe the Tiger slump will go on forever now. I can't believe Tiger Woods lost the PGA tournament to a nobody like C. E. Yang from somewhere on the Korean peninsula. Talk about choking. It must have crushed Tiger's confidence to go from one shot ahead of Yang to three--yes, three--shots behind at the end.

I'm not saying that Tiger's career is over yet. But we have to face facts. Tiger Woods has entered thirteen tournaments this year and has only won five. That's not even 50%. If he was coaching the LA Lakers and had that kind of record, Woods would have been fired by now.

Tiger also entered four major tournaments and didn't win a single one of those.

None! Nada! Zilch!

And the way Tiger choked away the PGA tournament was particularly sad:

This time, Woods made one mistake after another over the last four holes, mostly with his putter.

"I did everything I needed to do, except for getting the ball in the hole," Woods said. "Just didn't make the putts when I needed to make them."

"Just didn't make the putts"--what an obvious euphemism for "I choked big time."

Obviously, Tiger's career as a major league golfer is over. I just hope he retires before he starts embarrassing himself like that Michael Jordan guy.

Please! Tiger Woods career is over...what nonsense. He won five of the thirteen tournaments. What other golfer did that? His career is not over...geeze. You just about put him in a retirement home with a cane in one hand and a death certificate in the other.

He is Tiger Woods and still a great golfer that beat out all those other golfers to be second place in today's game. You don't even play golf. Not that that should matter, but you don't have a clue on this one or understand the nature of this profession.

Go back to commenting on politics.

Wasn't it Nike that said that silver is for losers?

Then again, there's some chance that my whole Tiger series has been a spoof on the "winning is the only thing" mentality.
