I feel sorry for Tiger Woods.

This man just had the worst round of golf in his professional career and EVERY single news source is just dying over this story. Every newscast around the WORLD has this story running about Tiger and the round of 81 he scored at the British Open.

Well, I think the media is somewhat to blame for it for building up the suspense about the possibility of him winning the third leg of the Grand Slam of gold. That combined with the public perception that he is an invincible player that cannot be beaten at the majors makes this collapse of his seem overly extraordinary. What most people forget is that he is human and capable of the same lapses in concentration and judgement that we all are. Yes, he will score a bad round. It may not happen often but it will happen.
