The Patented Tiger Woods Putter Throw
This last weekend was once again a painful experience for the infamous athlete Tiger Woods. At the Bridgestone Invitational, Tiger shot a whopping 18 over par, his worst score in his professional career. This from a guy who had never finished worse than fourth at Firestone in 11 previous events, who had not shot over par on the South Course since 2006, who last year made PGA Tour history by winning for the seventh time on the same course. The numbers associated with Woods always have been staggering, now more than ever. His 298 was 39 shots higher than the record score he shot 10 years ago at Firestone. He tied for 78th, the highest finish of his PGA Tour career. Only Henrik Stenson (20-over 300) kept Woods from finishing dead last. He set a career low by making bogey or worse on 25 of the 72 holes.
This is an unusual event for Tiger since he usually plays very well in this particular tournament. He has taken the title for a total of 7 times with an average score of 11 under par. To hit an 18 over par is just way out of the trend for him. His excuse is that it has been a long year, which is definitely not far from the truth. Will Tiger be able to bounce back from this one?
