Tiger Woods missed the cut of the 115th US Open this year with an aggregated score of 156 after the first two rounds. This was the highest 36-hole score by Woods at a major championship yet.
He struggles. He really struggles hard to find his game.
Meanwhile the media goes totally bonkers tearing their former superstar apart. Comments like “He’s done!”, “He should quit golf!”, “He’ll never win a tournament, above all a major, again!” are common.
It’s the old media game. People cheer you on when you are winning but clap the loudest when you are down. It’s interesting to see how the media coverage and public opinion of Tiger made a complete u-turn since Tigergate in 2009/2010.
Everyone and their dog has an opinion about Tiger and his game and many are not very positive. It feels to me that Woods arrived at a breaking point in his career – again.
Personally I wish him all the best, that he manages to bounce back and shuts them all up – just because he can. :-)
When you take a look at the footage from the mishits at the 2015 Memorial Tournament and US Open you’ll recognize the pattern which Tiger is trying to fix.
