That's pretty much gonna make golf unwatchable for me the rest of the year. Two more majors still to go with no Tiger. That really sucks!
This will be pretty bad for the networks as Musky said. Every person I’ve talked to that watches golf has basically said that the seasons over. No
point on watching now.
So tragic. I can only hope this wont shorten his career
There is no other sport that I watch only for one person.

Does anyone else feel like an 18-hole playoff is a little ridiculous...
I mean, come on... Doesn't EVERY other tourny have a sudden death playoff system???
Why does the US Open have to be weird?
I like it myself. It’s a compliment to how hard the tourney is supposed to be to win. I mean, it’s almost the hardest, most fair tourney (at least
this on at Torrey Pines was) that’s been around it a long time. It to me was a pleasure to see a course challenge and intimidate pros like I feel
sometimes playing courses above my head. In that respect, I think the full round playoff is a great additional test in the endurance it also takes to
win the US OPEN.
To each his own.
On a side note: I was at the Telus Skins Game (Weir, villegas, Couples, Norman, Monty) this weekend here at Predator Ridge and its really something to
see little guys like Weir and Camilo (mind you, he’s RIPPED) drive the ball as far as they do. Was really impressive to see these guys in real life
golf, so humbling, much more so than you relies on T.V. It gives me a much better perspective on just how damn good Woods is.
