I know, I know, Tiger has been a bad boy and he deserves to have a bum knee, and so on…
But I must admit I miss the guy.
The U.S. Open is just not the same without him. Golf is just not the same without him. TV is just not the same without him.
Yes, Rory McIlroy (above, right) gave a spectacular performance yesterday, and I hope he can keep it up. And, yes, Phil the Thrill’s round was worthy of Seve Ballesteros – or even Houdini.
But think how much more dramatic it would be if Tiger (above, left) were there in the weeds, lurking, ready to pounce on Sunday!
I mean no disrespect to Luke Donald, Graeme McDowell, Lee Westwood, Martin Kymer, and the rest of the pack. They’re all very talented. But there’s no Tiger in that bunch.
They just don’t have the magic.
So hurry and get well, Tiger.
We miss you.
