And if not the 50s, then at least the early 60s. The left accuses the right of being deeply paranoid. Meanwhile...

    Tiger Woods will miss the Masters after undergoing back surgery earlier this week for a pinched nerve that has been hurting him for several months, the world's No. 1 player said Tuesday on his website. It will be the first time in 20 years that Woods will not play in the event. The microdiscectomy was performed Monday by neurosurgeon Dr. Charles Rich in Park City, Utah. The statement said Woods will begin "intensive rehabilitation and soft-tissue treatment" within a week, and the goal is for him to return to competition "sometime this summer."

    ATLANTA -- Tiger Woods would like to see a time limit placed on viewer call-ins of possible rules violations and endorsed PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem's view that such situations need to be studied. Woods, who has been involved in three high-profile rules infractions this year while also coming under scrutiny for a drop at The Players Championship, said Wednesday that the potential for improvements in technology is part of the issue. PGA Tour commish Tim Finchem says spectators calling violations is "awkward." Should this be able to happen? Vote! "I think what the commissioner said yesterday is very appropriate,''...

    I’m a huge Tiger Woods fan. That’s why it pains me that he continues to do damage to his once-nearly-pristine image. Having recently reclaimed his sport’s ranking as World No. 1 – as the Euros put it – Tiger flew this week to Augusta, Georgia as the favorite to win the Masters. He acquitted himself rather well the tourney’s first two days, save for a mishap yesterday on the 15th hole. He hit an approach shot to the green that, as bad luck would have it, ricocheted off the flag pole and careened into the creek. After taking a “drop”...

    Did Tiger Woods' actions after he drenched his third shot on No. 15 Friday at Augusta result in him signing an incorrect scorecard, which would result in his automatic disqualification from the Masters? There was no definitive answer and a lot of speculation late Friday. So, while a conclusion has yet to be reached, let's walk through the events in question. After his round Woods said about his shot into the water on No. 15: "I went down to the drop area, that wasn't going to be a good spot, because obviously it's into the grain and it was a...

    Following Tiger Woods' recent win at the Bay Hill Invitational golf tournament last month, Nike released a commercial featuring its star endorser that defiantly stated, “Winning settles everything.” Company representatives said the ad was intended only to answer questions about the golfer's competitive drive after several years of uneven play. What Nike didn't acknowledge, but almost everyone assumes, is that the ad also was intended to silence anyone still critical of Woods' personal transgressions off the course. As a sports fan in general, and a lover of the game of golf in particular, I thought the ad was contemptible. Woods...

"I enjoy Florida, but also I understand what he was, I think, trying to say. I think he'll probably explain it better and in a little more detail." Mickelson's pre-tournament interview is scheduled for Wednesday.

    Tiger Woods failed to make the cut yesterday at the Wells Fargo Championship in Charlotte, N.C. – the second straight year he has done so. It is the first time in his otherwise illustrious pro career he has missed the cut at the same event more than once. Tiger attributed his failure to make the weekend in Charlotte to swing changes he has been working on with his coach Sean Foley. But I don’t think it has anything to do with swing changes. I believe Tiger’s on-the-course struggles – not only this week, but the past two years – have...

Woods is said to have made a woman in Las Vegas tip for him when they went out. While playing $10,000-a-hand blackjack, Tiger re-pocketed a $5 tip after realizing he tipped her early in the night.

Everything was present. The charge was there. He made up seven shots in eight holes, including an eagle on eight that led to the loudest roar of the weekend. Check....

    The largely expat gallery had flocked to the Omega Dubai Desert Classic to see Woods win for the first time in more than a year. Instead, what they got for their money was an exhibition of spitting by Woods that might yet receive a rebuke from the European Tour to match that of Sky commentator Ewen Murray, who gave him both barrels on air.

    SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Tiger Woods began his new season with no bogeys, no birdies on the par 5s and no drama.

    Tiger Woods: How I’ve Redefined Victory Last November, everything I thought I knew about myself changed abruptly, and what others perceived about me shifted, too. I had been conducting my personal life in an artificial way—as if detached from the values my upbringing had taught, and that I should have embraced. The physical pain from that car accident has long healed. But the pain in my soul is more complex and unsettling; it has been far more difficult to ease—and to understand. But this much is obvious now: my life was out of balance, and my priorities were out of...

    Cigar Guy's secret identity has been revealed, and in the end, the truth was right in front of our faces all along. Cigar Guy is, of course, the mysterious grinning stranger in the corner of that famous Daily Mail Tiger Woods photo from the Ryder Cup last week. Wearing what appeared to be a turban and smoking a cigar the size of a small tree, the absurdly out-of-place Cigar Guy kicked off a worldwide Internet game of Photoshop one-upsmanship.

    A golf fan who appeared in a remarkable photo taken by a Mail photographer has become an internet sensation after appearing on MailOnline. The man is pictured flamboyantly wearing a ginger-coloured wig, fake moustache and chomping on a large cigar, in tribute to iconic Spanish golfer Miguel Angel Jimenez. The incredible photo, which was taken by Mail On Sunday photographer Mark Pain, showed the ball heading at high speed straight towards the camera after world golf number one Tiger Woods misjudged a fairway shot at the Ryder Cup on Saturday.

    A photographer for the Daily Mail got an amazing picture at the Ryder Cup of Tiger Woods flubbing a shot headed directly at the camera. He didn't duck and Tiger's golf ball actually hit the lens — but not before the image was captured midflight. The photo has been seen around the world. But that's not what's captivating the Web. It's the amazingly unique look of the fan standing just to the right of Tiger's shoulder, chomping on a cigar, wearing a turban-like brown hat, and sporting a thick, Groucho Marx–style mustache. The spectator just steals the show. And just...

    Tiger Woods's feudal right to rule the roost can no longer be sustained when he gets duffed up quite as badly as this. The sight of Tiger giving of his best and finding it consistently and dazzlingly bettered by a man who, if he can forgive the imagery, really now ought to be dubbed 'Son of Monty' almost beggared belief as well as triggering the explosion of joy which ignited this great European comeback.
  • WAS TIGER WOODS THE “POLITICALLY CORRECT” CHOICE FOR THE RYDER CUP?

    Should Tiger be included on the Ryder Cup Team? Is he a former PGA phenom? Without question. Did he have an exceptional 2010 season? No, he had a decidedly lackluster 2010 season. Was he the first African-American golfer to achieve superstar status and retain it over several seasons? Aha! I think that could be the key! When we put together an Olympic hockey or soccer team, we don’t select a player who is the first Croatian-American who plays a mediocre hockey or soccer game, and who happens to be grappling with some emotional problems. No, we go for the guys...

It was his lowest round of the year.
