After Tiger Woods win in greatest U.S. Open ever, you will not see him until British Open, if then
LA JOLLA, Calif. (June 16, 2008) - The trophy from his 14th major championship in his arms, Tiger Woods is now going to trudge off into the sunset for a good long month. Ago, maybe it’s more likely that he’ll be on the yacht or lounging in one of his palatial coastal mansions.
But the next time anyone is going to see Woods swinging a golf club after his epic 91-hole, sudden-death, five-day U.S. Open Championship will be at the British Open in mid July.
Woods even left the British Open in a little doubt during a smaller right-off-the-trophy-presentation with a few writers - before his mammoth press center interview room appearance.
“I hope so,” Woods said when asked if the British would be his next tournament.
Expect Tiger to give it a go across the pond, knee and all. Which will probably just freak out everyone else in the field who won’t have seen him a month. 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...
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.
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.
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?
