I would say that every tournament Tiger is not in his absence is felt. When he's not in a tournament the viewer audience is down. We all need Tiger back.

Well, like previous years Tiger has not started yet. His first tournament is usually at the end of Jan. so I guess this weekend we will know for sure if his absence will be felt or not.

Why???? Yes I know, he is the #1 golfer in the World and when he is playing his 'A' game it is magical to watch. I am a Tiger fan, on the golf course, but I will be content watching Phil to see if he can hold it together on Sun. See if Furyk will step up--See if Kim can overcome his injuries?--here Sergio offer excuses--listen to Sabbatini cry or make out landish statements about 'whatever'--Here Els say he will be #1 in three years and Montgomery act like the spiritual leader of the PGA. I'm sure Stricker will show up and play as usual and with little or no fanfare, just win/lose without any excuses--there will be a ton of other stories to take up the gap of Tiger gone. I don't care about the business side of the PGA because there will always be a PGA Tour/players.

All these stories about Tiger are getting ridiculous--We all know what he did. He is getting more press on this than JFK--Clinton--Bryant--Jordan-- A-Rod and a hundred of other sports/politicians have over the years. It is time to go back to the focus of GOLF.

Yeah, the cheetah really screwed it up for the players and the golf fans. But ... life goes on.

I am an old lady who has been a fan of Tiger's since he started. I love to watch him play. I too hope he will return soon. I do not enjoy watching the other golfers play, only when they are trying to beat him. I also took note that late last year when he lost that major to Y.E., something in his demeanor told me something was not right with him. I guess we all know now what that was. I wish the best for him and Elin and only time will tell what the future holds for them.
