Quite correct. Without Tiger, you have a tour full of guys who are lucky to win one tournament in their lifetime, with a handful that may win a bit more. There is only real interest in golf, other than from diehard fans (many of whom have been priced out of actually playing by the ridiculous greens fees every place, including public courses charge these days - and they wonder why more rounds aren't being played, sheesh) when Tiger is on the scene. He is the only athlete capable of multiple win seasons, of creating great drama as well as great golf and he is in his prime. Golf needs Tiger a lot more than Tiger needs golf.
