Tiger keeps tailing – plays worst tourney ever

Tiger Woods shot a 7 over par 77 on Sunday in the final round of the World Golf Championships - Bridgestone Invitational to complete his worst tournament as a professional at 18 over par.

"I don't see how it can be fun shooting 18 over especially since my handicap is supposed to be zero," Woods said after the round in which he carded six bogeys and two double bogeys. It was his worst round of the four day tournament and tied his worst final round as a pro.

"It's nice that the tournament's over and we can focus on next week," the world's No. 1 golfer - at least for the moment - said. Phil Mickelson can take over the No. 1 spot in the world golf rankings if he finishes fourth or better on Sunday afternoon at Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio.

Woods and the rest of the tour head next week to Kohler, Wisconsin, and the PGA Championship, the last of the four major tournaments for 2010.

    I'd take 18 over on that course over four days. In fact, I'd take it on one round. But I digress.

    If anyone ever needed proof that golf is a mental set game, Eldridge is proving it.

    My advice for Tiger Woods, quit professional golfing for now......become the National spokesperson for $exual Addictions, helping others will be your healing. In the interim, start from the beginning, train as if you are a rookie, regain the "Eye of the Tiger", come back settled and mature enough to have forgiven yourself.

    MassiveMarbles you have it EXACTLY right, tiger will never return until he has fully forgiven himself regardless if anyone else has....... that process takes time.....

    Tiger has made the game of golf more human, despite his mistakes. We all make mistakes! So many men have affairs, and women, because he has been the 'world's best golfer', his life was turned inside out for the public to see, and made big news splash for 9 months, and it keeps on going. Is this a strange American situation? To face the public as he did took courage; to step onto the golf course as he has done after all the press, it requires courage .... he has learned about humility - maybe this will make him greater than he was as a human being. He has made golf more interesting beyond the game itself, because it's now more human.
