    Tiger has a lot of haters out there. Makes for great theater.

    Yeah, this is awesome. I guess I was ahead of the facts on the Tiger effect on Macdowell. He looked him in the face and didn't flinch. I'm becoming a Macdowell fan pretty quickly, except his Ryder Cup moment makes it awfully difficult.

    Based on that crowds reaction they are very firmly in Tigers corner.

    Graeme jars another one!
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    Holy crap, Macdowell made the putt again.

    And game over. Graeme wins it.

    Wow, just saw the playoff on DVR. I hope McDowell and Tiger battle all year in '11.

    I hope someone emerges as a clear leader in '11. Two years ago, it looked like everything was there for Anthony Kim's taking with Tiger out with his knee injury. Now it's the Euros turn with Rory McIlroy, Martin Kaymer, Lee Westwood and Graeme McDowell. It's unfortunate we don't get to see them play each week on the PGA Tour.

    Golf is uninteresting not because there's a lack of talent right now. Golf is uninteresting because there's nobody else out there that commands people's attention like Tiger does.

    Today was a great reminder that golf makes for supremely great theater.

    Re: Drought over for Tiger?

    I thought Tiger was great in his press conference afterwards. There were no sour grapes or "second place sucks" type of comments you usually see when he comes up short. He said he was proud of himself today even though he didn't win (something I never thought I'd hear him say), etc....

    I also enjoyed watching McDowell's press conference. He's a good interview and a pretty good dude. I hope he continues next year where he left off.

    I guess Tiger still hasn't lost his ability to make others rumble in his presence down the stretch. Macdowell has been the epitome of consistent in his play this year and this week. He's got a lead on Tiger with two holes to go and he doesn't just hit a poor shot, he hits an awful one that's going to make him lucky to walk away with a double. The Tiger effect is still strong it seems.
    Terrible tee shot that you attribute to the Tiger effect.

    What caused the soon-after 20 ft putt to drop though. Discussion in here has been silent on that.

    Look, this was a nice final day of the tournament thanks to Tiger being involved. But let's not give the guy too much credit when ever an opponent hits a horrid shot.

    Hopefully a great rivalry has begun.

    Yes, I said as much a few posts later.

    When it happened, it had all the markings of what we've seen time and time again. Someone is paired up with Tiger in the final round and they wind up imploding down the stretch. McDowell had been playing consistently the entire tournament and all day Sunday. He missed some shots as is inevitable, but he comlpetely lost that one left in big trouble with 2 holes left and a lead.

    I'd seen that movie before. But to his credit, he regrouped immediately, made a spectacular up and down followed by two straight birdies with everything on the line. Clearly he was not intimidated. But when it happened, it sure looked familiar.

    I wasn't worried about it. You were right, guys like Tiger sometimes get too much credit for things.

    I will say this, I think the Tiger effect is pretty much gone....... temporarily. If he goes on another one of his patented tears like in 2000-2001 or 2005-2006, it will probably resurface. But until then, I don't think players are scared like they used to be.
