Tiger’s Dad is Darth?

From SciFiWire.com:

Infamous Tiger Woods Nike ad mashed up with Darth Vader: As soon as we saw that bizarre, often-spoofed Nike commercial in which Tiger Woods stared off into the distance while listening to the voice of his late father, Earl, we immediately realized the cause of all Tiger’s recent troubles.

This is hilarious. Instead of “…did you learn anything?” we get “… you don’t know the POWER of the dark side.”

The Eagle has Landed for Mickelson!

OMG! What a third day!! From Phil going -5 in a 3 hole stretch, and missing -6 by about an inch, to [[Tiger]] having a very tough day, but still managing to keep pace with the leaders, and Lee Westwood holding it together to keep his lead, it was a spectacular moving day at the [[Masters]].


Phil getting an eagle on 13, holing out for eagle on 14, and nearly holing out for eagle on 15 has to be the greatest three hole stretch in [[Masters]], if not golf history.

I hope this is a preview of what’s coming for Sunday.

Ahhh…. spring is finally here!

The Masters is Finally Here!

The winner of the [[Masters]] is presented with a green jacket, for those that don’t know

OK, so who’s going to be charging on Sunday afternoon around Amen Corner to claim the Green Jacket this year? What are your predictions for [[Tiger]]?

I’m thinking [[Tiger]] finishes in the top ten, probably ahead of every other big name. The winner this year is going to be someone we don’t expect at all. Phil Mickelson will miss the cut, and Ernie Els will finish middle of the pack, as will Steve Stricker.

But who knows? I only know one thing: I’ll be watching on Sunday as this year’s champion is crowned!

Tiger’s Return

Well, it’s finally here, the final week of winter. Oh, I know that the calendar says that spring started a couple of weeks ago. But it’s not really spring until Sunday afternoon at Amen Corner at the [[Masters]].

This year is a bit different at The Masters than any other year though. It’s the Year of the Tiger, and the year that [[Tiger]] tries to make amends. Will he be able to quell the rancor of the crowds and score at Augusta? I hope so.

I have to say that from the beginning I was a huge supporter of [[Tiger]]. He seemed to do it the right way both on, and off the course. Well, clearly, his antics off the course have proved me at least half wrong, and some of his behavior on the course has left a lot to be desired as of late.

Hopefully the past few months have given him a full serving of humble pie and he’s willing to come back with more respect for the game, for his fans, for women, and especially for his family.

Woods on verge of making return

From BBC Sports:

Woods on verge of making return: Tiger Woods will make his comeback from injury at next week’s WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship in Arizona.

Good news for golf fans! Having gone through the surgery(s) and recovery that he’s gone through, I know how tough it is to come back, and how sweet it feels when you do. Best of luck [[Tiger]]!!!
