TIger drives 65 for the entire weekend then cruses into Minnesota

Tiger Woods was an overwhelming favorite to win the British Open and embarrassingly missed the cut at a major for only the second time in his illustrious career. So with everyone contemplating if he had finally become mortal and come down to earth TW responded by winning two straight tournaments including the WGC-Bridgestone this weekend. After a typically normal first two rounds, Woods shot 65-65 on the weekend to win for the fifth time in 12 starts this year and second in a row heading into the year's final major, the PGA Championship, which begins Thursday at Hazeltine National in Minnesota. With the change in scenery the questions arises will Tiger win a Major this year? As usual the odds makers think so, pitting Tiger as a 3/2 favorite with the next closest being Lefty at 20-1, a separation as wide as the lake that Hazeltine boarders. Despite is performance in the last two tournaments is that kind of respect deserving? Well, for a guy who judges himself by his performance on the big stage probably not, but does anyone else have enough game to challenge him right now? No. His only competition has been himself since the injury and if he can put together a complete tournament like his final 28 wholes then take 3/2 “for fun”. He’s played the last 28 holes -10 with 10 birds and an eagle, and as everyone knows, Tiger’s equivalent to kryptonite are his tee shots and off the peg he was 78.6 greens in reg, which means his iron-work comes into play and on the felt he was 23/23 inside 10 feet. Riding that kind of mo’ 20/1 seems to be about right. Will TW get his major this year? Let us know here and in the World Sports/Golf chat rooms. Also see the quick links
