Tiger Woods just completed his worst tournament since turning pro back in 1996 this weekend. Has his golf game disappeared along with his cadre of mistresses?
Playing in the WGC Bridgestone Invitational in Ohio, an event he has won a staggering seven times before, Tiges finished in a tie for 78th. Out of 80 players.
His score of 298 was 39 shots higher than the record score he shot 10 years ago at Firestone. He set a new low by making bogey or worse on 25 of 72 holes.
It’s such an amazing fall from grace that Elin Woods may be in the running for Sports Illustrated Sportswoman of the Year honors if it continues much longer.
To think, just one swing of a nine-iron tamed the world’s best athlete …
JUST DO IT BETTER: Tiger Woods and golf fans wish he would.
No one expected Tiger Woods to dominate as he did before revelations of his sexual escapades with Rachel Uchitel and 15-200 other women surfaced late last year.
But no one could have imagined this, either.
“He’s just not the regular Tiger we’re used to seeing,” said fellow pro Anthony Kim. “He’s obviously had a lot of stuff going on, and he’s dealing with that.”
“That’s more important than golf. I think golf is an easy thing to do once your personal life is straightened out. I’m sure it’s going to happen soon for him.”
How soon? Will it coincide with the finalizing of his divorce or a judge shooting down Devon James‘ paternity suit against him? Not even Woods can say.
