Tiger’s Swing Really Blows
By Stephanie Wei under General

At least today it does. To clarify for Tiger Woods’ Neck, the “descending blow” talk refers to the in-depth swing analysis between Nick Faldo and Jack Nicklaus.

According to Jack, “I believe the golf game is played with the clubhead and [Tiger] has got to think in terms of what the clubhhead is doing in the swing…He’s the best I’ve ever seen at posting a score when he’s playing poorly.”

In other words, Tiger is getting stuck behind the ball. (His tempo looks terrible, too.) But indeed, no one scores from the rough like Tiger. If anyone has tuned in to the Golf Channel for five seconds, you’ve probably seen him in some sort of trouble. But somehow he’s even-par through 12. Just seven shots off the lead!

And if you would like to watch Tiger lunge at the ball, good news! — because the Golf Channel would like to provide you with “as much live coverage of Tiger the marquee group [Tiger, Steve Stricker and Jason Bohn] as possible,” the broadcast will probably continue until around 8 or whenever it’s too dark to play.
