People get a toothache and are terrified to go to the dentist because they worry it will hurt. Heck, it already hurts, right? They put off going to the doctor for fear of getting bad news, which simply makes any condition they might have gotten worse later down the road.
Naturally, the social media universe almost went into meltdown, which required Rory to do a little scrambling, but not really apologizing. In fact, he questioned if he had actually said anything wrong and claimed he has said much worse to Tiger's face.
After hitting his shot to the 18th green at the BMW, Billy Horschel took off like a bat out of hell for the portatoilet and who can really blame him. The tournament is a huge feather in his cap and, well, when ya gotta go, ya gotta go. It's as simple as that.
At the BMW Championship at Cherry Hills GC this year, they will play the first hole from 346 yards, which is the same distance that the course played when Arnold Palmer won the 1960 US Open back. Normally, the hole plays 389 yards.
In my opinion, Tiger should take time to heal and then start working with Butch Harmon again. The guy is excellent at what he does and can put him back together again rather quickly as he knows Tiger's strengths and weaknesses.
Mark Khan, who should make a great Jewish grandmother someday as he takes great delight in reminding me when I'm wrong (which could be a full time occupation), reminded me that Tiger Woods pulled himself out of Ryder Cup team consideration.
If Tiger Woods wants to be serious about a comeback, he has to take some time off to get his health problems settled, and then he has to dump Sean Foley as fast as he can.
I am really getting tired of writing about Tiger Woods, but he keeps giving people, especially idiots like me, new reasons to keep him in the news well past his sale date.
Every time I go on line looking for interesting golf news, I cannot escape Tiger stories. Even when he isn't winning the writers simply cannot leave him alone and focus on players more worthy.
Champions are not born or made, they are forged in the pressure of the situation and while young McIlroy showed great stuff in the event, he didn't quite endure the high heat and pressure which could have been brought to bear if Fowler and Garcia had stepped up their games a bit more.
As a golf club manager/director of golf and as an occasional tournament player, I have seen firsthand what can happen when someone "buys" your caddie and I have sacked a few caddies for taking payment to screw up their player.
