Tiger's Domination Over?

July 22, 2009

Let the record show that the first letter signaling the beginning of the end of the Tiger Woods' Era arrived this week, just after the Open Championship. The King is dead, says our friend from Roseville, California.


Dear Editor,>

It is apparent that Woods reign as a dominant player is coming to a close.He has progresively played worse in each of his last three majors and it would not be a surprise if he were to fail to win another major as players no longer are in awe of him.

On behalf of all of us who had predicted Tiger victories at both the U.S. Open and the British, let me say we're not convinced, Gene. It's not the awe that wins majors, it's the mind and the swing. Tiger's working on the swing. The mind's fine; the awe will follow. Here's my prediction: Tiger Woods wins the PGA Championship by 5, and we're all awestruck all over again.
