Can We Stop Doubting Tiger, please? Masters his
The yahoos calling up to complain about Tiger Woods’ stance on a tap-in putt (imagine a viewer phoning ABC to say Shaq took an extra half step on a uncontested slam, who cares?) aren’t as funny as yahoos like Tim McDonald who rushed to call Woods’ Masters over after a soggy first round.
Here’s a new flash for Tim and the rest of the contrarians: Tiger Woods is no Phil Mickelson. Tiger’s back. He showed it at Doral when he outdrove Mickelson and turned the people’s choker into a quivering mound of yips in that one-on-one Sunday showdown. And for those too dense to see it then, he emphatically showed it again today at Augusta.
Only Tiger could come back from putting into the pond and knocking a shot off a tree. Can you imagine Phil rebounding from that? He’d need six months of therapy to ever contend again. Woods shrugged it off in less than 24 hours.
This is why Tiger’s always been the best and always will be the best. Jack Nicklaus’ majors wins record remains on the endangered list, just like it always has ever since Woods burst onto the scene. It might take McDonald and friends a few more majors to see this, but hey they have time. Tiger’s going to be dominating for a long, long stretch.

He had better MAN-UP before he loses what audience he has.
If he doesn't, that golf editor position at the Wedowee Journal in Pertater Hatch, Idaho is awaiting him.
