No thanks. Professional Golf should stay where it is. There is no way to compare performance from one Olympics to another because it will be on different courses. Besides, they are professionals and not amateurs. Personally, I'd like to see all Olympic Sports go back to amateur status. Now, maybe a competition like longest drive, putting, closest to pin, etc. could be considered. Only, however, it is with golfers of amateur status.

TIGER CHEERLEADERS - WHO IS THE REAL KING OF MAJORS? Golf and Tennis have 4 majors a year. Tiger age 33 has 14 majors and is 4 shy of the all time PGA Majors record. Roger age 27 has 13 majors and is 1 shy of the all time ATP Majors record. Take into account though that Roger won his first major 6 years and 25 majors after Tiger won his first! In 2009 watch Tiger try to win the U.S. Open for the 2nd year in a row and don't forget your POM POMS CHEERLEADERS! Afterwards, watch Tiger in New York watching Roger Federer try to win the U.S. Open for a record 6th year in a row! Now even TIGER CHEERLEADERS know that that deserves a PEP-RALLY! Finally, did you get those pom poms from NIKE?

Bravo Truth! I've been fed up with the "tiger" mania propaganda from the outset. It gained momentum at the expense of others accomplishments. Keep golf & TIGER out of the Olympics! That's my stand and I'm sticking to it.

Wonder how much Tiger would demand from the Olympic committee just to show up. You know he would not do it for just his country.

Don't think he would play in the Olympics. Would use the " I'm to exhausted from my buzy schedule to play." Then go the next week to a tournament that pays him 2,000,00 to just show up.
