Tiger, your dad's still proud, but I still hate you
I have mixed feelings about Tiger Woods missing the US Open cut at Winged Foot.
On one hand, I always like seeing him struggle. I cheered him on early in his career, but as he became more and more invincible and more arrogant, I liked him less and less. On the other hand, I feel for him because he just lost his dad. Golf was a bonding experience for me and my father, and I can imagine the disappointment Tiger must feel, as if maybe he let his dad down by missing the cut. Something tells me Tiger's dad is proud no matter what.
I consider myself a "Phil guy." I've always liked lefties because my dad is one. I like Phil's cheesy grin and "every guy look," what with the man boobies and paunch and all. It will be tough for Phil to come back from +3, but wouldn't that be a great story!
All in all, I like watching the major tournaments because all the pros tend to struggle in them. I laugh when they sometimes say the course isn't fair and when the commentators say the course is embarrassing the players. Now they feel how most of us do when we struggle through practically each and every round we play!
It's great seeing guys that shoot 20-under in the normal tour events come to a major, flub shots out of the rough, and miss four foot putts that they could normally make in their sleep. Seeing the "best in the world" throw their clubs in disgust and sulk around the course is always entertaining to me.
