The golf world has seen its fair share of spectacle over the ages, but nothing like what 2010 has had to offer. Tiger Woods, the undisputed king of golf, has brought shame to his name after a scandal in his personal life brought his golf career under fire. Returning to the sport, he is just not the same player that he was before. In a recent game in the Bridgestone Invitational in Akron Ohio, he shot his worst round yet.
He was doomed from the beginning. He started out the day on a bad note. He hit tee shots into the trees and made bogeys on the first two holes of the course, which are incidentally the easiest ones. Despite this being one of Tiger’s favorite courses, he failed to deliver a quality game. He has claimed seven victories in his last nine appearances here, but on Thursday, none of his alleged skill was evident. The prodigy of golf looked a wreck.
He carried on in much the same fashion; the rest of the tournament didn’t go well for him. He posted a 4-over 74 for his highest score at Firestone and ended up 10 shots behind Bubba Watson. This is the largest deficit he has faced since his return to the Masters. Spectators heckled him on Thursday, telling him he was washed up, done for, and that he should retire.
People are beginning to question: will Tiger Woods ever get back to playing like he did years ago? Will he return to the top of the golf world? Have the recent issues in his personal life completely rendered him obsolete on the course? In the time Tiger battled things out with his family, the other competitors were training, playing, and improving their game. Indeed it seems that he is now a bit outdated; his game seems stale. Will he turn it around or continue his slow decline? Be sure and follow up on all the best sports betting information at www.scoresandodds.com.
