Could you please stop obsessing over Tiger Woods?! He hasn't won a tournament in over a year and isn't even ranked in the top 10. Despite this, every PGA story has to lead with something about him; i.e. "Tiger Finishes 34th, Some Other Guy Wins." The only "news" about him is his personal life (I don't care), his ailments (yawn) or him changing his swing... again (still don't care). Are you sportswriters or tabloid "journalists?" Just report the news and stop trying to make the news.

Like it or not Tigger sells tickets and brings in the tv ratings. People like you would show up just to heckle him if nothing else. All the waffle house waitresses can rest easy next week.

Don't pretend to know me, as you clearly do not. I understand selling tickets and ratings, but that's not news. News, not tabloid fodder. You missed my point entirely. I'm not anti-Tiger, just asking for some love from the media for the other guys. As for heckling on a golf course, that violates decorum and has no place in golf. Liked the Waffle House joke though. Their relief is probably matched by the disappointment of the "ladies" at Solid Gold.

When Luke achieves No.1 in the world, which is inevitable, certain facts about his father will come to light. I worked for him for many years and remember Luke when he was a little boy.

'Old enough to bleed, old enough to breed' remember that Colin ?
