Golf: The Tiger Factor

Love him or hate him. He is golf. Tiger Woods was out of the golf scene for over a year. During that span, ratings were low and personally, I barely watched any tournaments. Tiger is not my favorite golfer, but something about him being in contention draws me to watch.

Two weeks ago Tiger won at Jack’s tournament in Ohio. I watched as much as I could. The US Open, Tiger shot himself out of it on Saturday, which made Sunday less interesting. To add to that, he started 4 over after the first 3 holes. Golf just got less interesting.

Granted, CBS, NBC, ESPN and the Golf Channel all try to make ‘stories’ out of the other golfers but they prove to be boring. Tiger has a certain draw and it doesn’t matter if you love him or hate him. You have to watch him. At least to say you did.

Here is a video proving why you need to watch;

One thought on “Golf: The Tiger Factor

  1. I personally don’t hate Tiger…but I don’t want him to win any more majors….but that’s more about the fact that Jack sits at the top of that list and Jack is a Buckeye. I can’t root for Tiger to break Jack’s records.

    Tiger’s head just isn’t in the game any more. He stumbled yesterday and then has crumbled today. Maybe if he goes back to hanging out in casinos w/ strippers he can get his head straight.
