Tiger Woods Did NOT Choke in the PGA Championship
Just finished reading one of the dumbest articles I’ve ever seen. Following a link in the Golf For Beginners blog on this website, I was directed to an article by sportswriter Jay Mariotti that says Tiger Woods choked in the PGA Championship last weekend. For him to say that only confirms my lowly opinion of his sports acumen.
Golf is not a game that merely by force of will can be mastered in any given round on any given day. Some days you just don’t have it. I don’t know if Woods inability to make putts on Sunday was the result of the mental fatigue from 3 straight weeks atop the leaderboard, spotty poa annua in the greens or just a rotten day. But this much I can assure you: it was not from choking.

Greg Norman's performance against Nick Faldo in the 1996 Masters qualifies as a choke.
Now, if we could only get rid of McCord - trying to be funny and yakking all the time.
