Mid-Tourney Crisis For Tiger Woods in Dubai
Check out Tiger’s first 36 holes in Dubai. They are curious for the following reasons:
–Tiger has made 12 birdies and 2 eagles, yet is “only” eleven under par.
–Tiger is an aggregate +1 for the 18th hole. Nothing extraordinary if … it weren’t a par five! When is the purr-fect one EVER over par for a par five?
–Tiger pitched a double bogey and two singles against his eight birdies and eagle in round two. You want roller-coaster excitement? Watch the last two rounds of the Dubai and see if Tiger can settle down and win again, or see if he lives life on the Daly side.

Ernie Els had an eagle on the last hole of Round 2, to get just 1 shot behind Tiger.
Ernie has been very steady with just one bogey in the two days of play.
His putting improved also in the second round.
Retief is also showing his class, given that he hasn't played much lately. Baldwin predicted that Goosen was finished in majors. Reteif could well be a big factor in all 4 majors this year. So Baldwin will probably be wrong once again, but eh, there isn't anything new there.
