I guess you didn't see his short birdie
miss with a few holes to play? He choked
all over that one, and that's why we
aren't seeing a playoff today.

Booger,

I've got to agree with Chris on this one with everything but that Woods is going to blow by Jack's majors record.

Woods may never win another major,but it won't be for lack of trying.

Booger, every missed putt is not the result of "choking."

Many people, possibly you among them, don't like Tiger Woods. Many see him as haughty, arrogant and condescending.

In my opinion, he knows he is good and he doesn't mind showing it.

But love him or hate him, he is the best in the world today and he has been for quite a while.

He is also the consummate grinder, which is why he is usually in contention.

Remember, nobody wins them all.

So I guess all of those par putts Tiger made down the stretch to keep himself in the championship don't reflect his competitiveness? Is that right, Booger?

Chris: He was playing another ridiculous USGA setup that turned another major into a dartboard toss and he still gave himself a chance on the 72nd hole. That's as clutch as it gets.
_____________________________

No, as clutch as it gets would have been giving himself a better birdie chance on 18 and knocking it in.

He also missed a green on one of the closing holes with a wedge in his hand. He may have got up and down for par, but he really should have been giving himself a birdie putt with a wedge in his hand.

Tiger just isn't as good as he used to be in those situations. He is still the best player of course, but he is losing that sense of invincibility.

Furthermore, Tiger pretty much lost a 3rd round lead in a major for the first time. Sure he had one player ahead of him, but that player was out of it right from the beginning. He was a non-factor in it. He started going backwards from the start, so Tiger was pretty much the one who had the lead.
For the 2nd major straight, someone came from behind Tiger in the 4th round of a major to pass him and win it.

Here is an interesting fact. On the ladies' side prior to this year, Annika had 4 or more wins 8 times, and 3 or fewer wins 5 times. She also won 3 US Womens' Opens--all of them in the 5 years when she had 3 or fewer wins. Makes one wonder about the people who are setting up these courses.

On that course, play for birdies and you lose big. You have to play for pars and hope luck favors you with a few birdies. A pretty fair measure of clutch play Sunday would be the number of holes at par or better. Tiger's 16 holes at par or better was extremely impressive.

Au contraire, Lambchops, mon amie... I hesitate to disagree with your vast knowledge of stuff golf, but I must agree with Mr. Baldwin on this point.
You might as well consider Jacks records shattered already.

I think we are forgetting something very basic here. The lowest score wins. Tiger can be beaten, he will get beaten alot more in the future. Just as Jack did. No one guaranteed Tiger that he would win the Open. When Tiger gets beaten, you are all SO shocked! Angel who?
How about a story about THE winner?

Well, with Tiger versus the rest of the field, I like the odds of Mr. Rest-Field. There will always be a Cabrera, there will always be an Ogilvy. AS Tiger the golfer matures, Tiger the human/man experiences new things (death of the father, birth of the child, wedding.) Take a look at the next five Opens...like Tiger's chances?

I like Tigers chances very much but watching the Baddelly's and the Casey's of the world , chase him, gives cause to wonder how difficult they'll make it for him.
Nah, I still like his chances.

Well, with the birth of a little girl, daddy Woods might slow down a bit, but not much.

How many times has Tiger won a major coming from behind on day 4?

How many times has Tiger won a major going into day four with the lead?

I believe the answer to one of those is 0% and the other is 100%.

Tiger made $100,000,000 last year and the bloggers are treating him like he is a bum!

Tiger's good, but he ain't no closer when he's down even 1 stinking stroke in a major? C'mon. He never pulls those off now does he...but I gotta say, his round on Saturday was a be-u-tee-ful thing to watch.

Best of ALL TIME???? how can you say that? He is the best in the world now and for his generation but I dont believe he is better than Nicklaus or Snead. Once Tiger retires from the tour, then we can consider him for the title, "Best Ever". until then, it will be Nicklaus.
