"Ugly, ugly, ugly" is how
Yahoo described it
Well, that was ugly. Ugly, ugly,
ugly. It's the only way to truly describe the first round
of the Bridgestone Invitational in the eyes of Tiger Woods. We've seen
him struggle this
year with his golf game, from missed putts at big moments at the
Masters to putter changes
at St. Andrews, but nothing like this.
You can go on some dates here or there, but you always know the girl
you have your eyes on.
That is Firestone for Tiger. This is his baby. This is the golf course
that has yielded seven of his
71 PGA Tour wins. This is the venue that was made for Tiger Woods.
Tight fairways that force
you to drive the ball well off the tee, and shape your shots into the
tough greens, Firestone is where
Tiger licks his chops.
But here we are, in 2010. On Thursday at Firestone,
Tiger shot a 4-over 74, his worst round ever at this course. (He ended up 18 over par)
Poor Eldrick. He
fairways, and when he does, he doesn't get the ball close to the hole.
If he does get it close to the hole, he's burning edges, and he
occasionally throws in a short par-putt miss.
Tiger hit five fairways in the first round to go with his 11 greens in
regulation and 32 putts, some stats
that seem more likely to summarize a round you and I throw together,
not a 14-time major winner.
Does he have any other skills?
Maybe it's time Eldrick found a new
line of work?
He's only 35, maybe he could take some classes at a local community
and learn how to repair air conditioners or small motor repairs or
