Tiger Woods shot a 44 on the front, 79 for the round, and finished 16 shots off the lead, yesterday, in the Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village. Later, speaking the royal plural, Woods explained:
We didn't hit that many bad shots starting out the day and the next thing you know we are quite a few over par. It was a tough day. I tried to fight back on the back nine, just didn't quite materialize.
And for that, we all say, "Abundant thanks for enlightening us, your Grace."

Funny what the game of golf can drive a man to do—and no, I'm not talking about Tiger Woods. Rather, when I learned of a package deal involving unlimited golf at the Phoenician hotel in Scottsdale, Arizona, I took advantage of it faster than a Masters champion takes advantage of a cocktail waitress. (Okay, that time I was referring to Tiger.)
The whole notion of 'role models,' especially in the ranks of professional athletes, is naïve.3:49 PM, Feb 22, 2010 • By PHILIP TERZIAN
I don't know whether it's age or climate change, but the Tiger Woods Crisis has left me in a mystified state. I say this as a non-golfer who follows the pop cultural news with some fidelity.
