I think Tiger is toast this week. He's a little off with the driver, way off with his irons, and putting poorly. He's a mess. And, he's very frustrated. I'm usually very optimistic when it comes to him, but I don't see it this week. He looks terrible.
The one thing that stands out the most to me is his iron play. He only hit 7 greens yesterday. Even during his worst driving rounds, he still managed to hit his irons decent. I was shocked at how far right he hit some of his shots. Disappointing to see.
I still love watching Tiger play, but the more I listen to him talk the more I dislike him. He's a complete arse. I actually try to avoid listening to him in interviews now. It'd be nice if he showed just a little bit of humility and gratitude for a change. One day, when he's old and gray and has no friends or family, he'll realize what a jerk he was his whole life. It's a shame.
