"Sometimes it seems like the less Tiger plays, the more intimidating he becomes to his supposed peers."

Im really tired of all these little jabs intimating that the PGA tour doesnt play Woods hard or that they give him championships.
Hasn't he been turning in quite a few runner up finishes in majors? How many times must we see a gutty effort by some scrappy player before you all admit that these guys are giving it their all?

Maybe he wins because he's really good, even better than most. Im just saying...

Shameful,

Use your noodle. Saying that Woods intimidates people isn't a pejorative, but a compliment. The idea is that he's so good, so larger-than-life, so much of a legend in his own time that other players suffer a measure of mental breakdown when contending with him. No one is saying they don't TRY their best; rather, it's the case that they often CANNOT play their best because they are intimidated.

Are you black? It's usually the case that when someone ascribes negative motivations to something whites say that is obviously so positive, it's a black person who is blinded by his own bigotry.

Judge Smails is right again. I'm at the point where I feel it's not fair to debate Tiger and punish him for being born in 1975 and playing against the mentally soft. He's old school in his grit and it's a pity we aren't able to see him playing against any rivals worth a damn. Nicklaus, Player, Palmer, Hogan, Snead, Nelson, Jones, Hagen, Sarazen...even Craig Wood...would be annihilating these fields as Tiger is doing.

I think the news today is really sad. PGA Tour without Tiger is like watching a movie with Subtitles....you're just not as enthusiastic about it than the real deal.

No Judge & Jury, this is a viewpoint that expressed quite often in the media. Forgive me if you've never heard or read the commentators & writers bemoaning the fact that the players cower before Tiger & that he never gets any "real" competition.

After a while it feels like an uncharitable (and just flat out wrong) assessment of guys who do go out there and play hard and are not just cashing a paycheck, enjoying the spoils of the Tiger era while putting in half the effort. Even European golfers have intimated the same thing.

however, Im not sure I CAN give you a racial breakdown of all this-since it seems important to you.

Shameful,

You don't seem very bright. I suggest you read my post again, carefully, with an eye toward understanding it. Again, there is a difference between trying your best and being able to do your best. Can your wanting gray matter assimilate this simple concept?
