Has anyone ever seen the type of hype that is surrounding Tiger’s return to play this week? It’s almost getting to the point of ridiculous. Last night, The Golf Channel had a “Tiger Ticker” in the top right of the screen that was counting down the hours, minutes & seconds until Tiger tees off today. It’s all just nuts. I personally don’t know how TW would even be able to warm up on the range with 5000 cameras clicking away as he hit balls.
Strangely enough, I haven’t heard one media head say that Tiger is not the favorite to win the Accenture Matchplay. The guy hasn’t played a competitive tournament in 8 months, and he’s still the best pick for the win. Like it or not, the other pros have to like what Tiger brings to the game. He truly is larger than the game of golf.
