Tiger’s coming back to life as I write this post, but seriously…par is basically 68 out there today. Steve “lunch pail” Lowery shot 63. It’s a pushover. Tiger could birdie out, and end up winning the tournament going away, but I’m just wondering how much longer before the Hank Haney whispers start to gain steam. If he doesn’t sort it out today, or in the next two weeks that basically amounts to a lost season for Tiger, who judges everything on the Majors. For a guy who says his swing is constantly evolving, maybe it’s time again for a new set of eyes. Haney was working with Charles Barkley. That could break any man. I didn’t see the exact results of that celebrity event in Tahoe, but I’m pretty sure Chuck was battling with another Chuck…Liddell, for DFL. So the verdict on the Haney Project…Epic Fail.
I don’t want to see Tiger win everything, but it’s strange watching him stuggle a bit. It doesn’t seem right. And, I know that technically with 3 wins on the year you can hardly say he’s struggling, but he’s spraying it around today at the Buick Open. This thing is a track meet. You don’t lay low for a few days, shoot 68 on Saturday, and lap the field. These guys are going deep, four days straight. Tiger shoots 70 today, or whatever it ends up being…that’s a real hole.
I was out doing a couple errands, and I think the Ortiz story kind of passed me by in these last couple hours. There’s not much to say really. Unless you have a problem with the Red Sox fans that looked down their noses at Clemens, Andy, A-Rod…then I don’t think this should produce much of a reaction. The line is so blurred now between the guys that have been proven, and the guys who haven’t, I don’t even know which is which. Everyone keeps their World Series rings, ok? The other team was on it, the pitchers were on it, it was probably as close to fair as it ever was…just a different kind of fair.
