Tiger Woods Hits Rock Bottom

Tiger Woods may still officially be the world’s No. 1 golfer, but it sure doesn’t feel that way: He had the worst tournament of his pro career over the weekend when he shot 18-over at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, a tournament he has won seven times since 1999. “Remember when golf was going to save Tiger Woods?” Jason Gay writes for The Wall Street Journal. “It's worthless to try and diagnose a specific golf ailment. Mr. Woods is fully scrambled. Outside of a fourth-place tie at the Masters—a finish that now looks as if it was accomplished on adrenaline and fumes of tabloid ink—he's been searching erratically for fragments of his former greatness. Emotion has crept in. The theory that Mr. Woods was a cold-blooded compartmentalizer whose game would be immune to his personal crisis? A fantasy.”
