Now that he's held his token press conference and given a pair of interviews, we can get back to the business of thinking about Tiger's pursuit of Jack's 18 majors. He's at 14. Last took one home at the 2008 US Open at Torrey Pines. I don't give him much of a chance at the Masters which gets rolling 2 weeks from Thursday. History says forget it. You don't take nearly 5 months off from competitive golf, even if you're Woods, then jump back in at a high level. As mentioned on SportsTalk, TW tried that after his dad passed in 2006 at our Open at Winged Foot. Not only did he fail to contend, but he missed his first cut as a professional. Of course he bounced back to win the British Open at Royal Liverpool and the PGA Title at Medinah. I believe his return at Augusta is about a secure venue that protects it's players from media scrutiny with it's tight rules and guidelines. It's also critical to understand the US & British Open will be held at 2 of his favorite venues, Pebble Beach and St. Andrews. Tiger re-wrote the record book when the U.S Open was held at Pebble back in 2000 and 2 of his 3 British crowns took place at The Olde Course. Who am I to say he doesn't have the game to pull off the minor miracle by winning his 5th green jacket? Just don't see it happening. I would be really surprised if he got beat by anyone in either Open. Let's give away some from eats. E-mail the correct answer to the following question to firstname.lastname@example.org
Chance for a $100 gift certificate to Sunsational Tanning in Eugene. Nice spring time present. I mentioned Tiger winning the 2000 Open at Pebble and the two victories at St. Andrews. What was his margin of victory in each of these major victories? Good Luck!
