The Masters confirms the one chink in Tiger Wood's armor
This year’s Masters wasn’t exactly the most exciting in history, and it may be known for one important thing it confirmed: Tiger Woods is not a charger. He may never be. He can hold a lead better than anyone in history, but he’s simply one of those guys who cannot come from behind.
He may be the world’s best golfer. He may be on his way to becoming the best golfer of all time, but the dude won’t go down as one of history’s Great Chargers.
Actually, Woods led the Masters briefly Sunday, so it could be said, technically, he couldn’t protect a lead.
But, he spent most of the day coming from behind, and when it came time to make the charge, he looked like a normal, human golfer. Coming from behind on Sunday, in Augusta, is probably the most exciting thing golf has to offer, and damn it, I wanted to see it.
Instead, I saw Zach Johnson kissing a baby and talking about his love for Jesus.
Still, it is testimony to Woods’ greatness that he was as close as he was even though you could tell he was uncomfortable with his swing.
How many golfers on the planet can be in serious contention at Augusta when they can’t hit a driver?

Jack would school Tiger if they were tied going into the back nine at Augusta.
