Mariotti knows golf like I know molecular cell biology (i.e., not at all).

I agree, Woods just didn't putt well and that gave Yang enough of an opening to win.

Greg Norman's performance against Nick Faldo in the 1996 Masters qualifies as a choke.

The fact is Tiger shut it down on Sat and Sun and tried to coast in. As with any sport the moment you relax its the moment you start to loose control. He under estimated the field thinking I am Tiger and they will all falter I can center of the green it and win. I hope the next major he realizes the tournament is 72 not 36 holes.

I would agree that Woods played conservative when the situation dictated, but not that he "shut it down". He absolutely loves to crush the opposition and would much rather win by five shots than four. There is a reason for conservative play - you saw it when he was forced to go pin-hunting on 17 & 18 Sunday. That was one tough course they played and marginal agressive shots risked severe penalty.

Peter, I think you're wrong, and that your comment was quite a silly one considering Woods has won major championships before by mind-boggling stroke margins. He just didn't have it on the day - granted, this is the first time leading going into the last round of a major that Tiger didn't produce, but hey, Yang is a good player. Tiger certainly faltered, but he didn't choke - let's take no credit away from Yang here.

blah...Tiger got outplayed on a Sunday for once-plain and simple but will it happen again?

No, he just got flat out beat!

Now, if we could only get rid of McCord - trying to be funny and yakking all the time.

I agree with John D. McCord forces it. Has been for years. He'd be much better if he didn't prepare for the broadcast (most of his "funny" lines are scripted) and did it au naturel.

What makes you suppose McCord would sound better if he yakked in the nude? :)

Pretty funny! Let's amend that to off the cuff ....

Tiger is near impossible to beat with a lead he did the impossible. If Tiger choked you still can't take away what Yang did. He did just that and this is a huge accomplishment for Yang

Agreed, Yang was a rock.
