Tiger Woods grew a goatee and is a little off his game. That could be the understatement of the year. I have stayed clear of the Tiger topics for the most part, but today I will make an exception. With the years’ final major starting today all eyes will be on the current #1 to see if he can come out of the fog. Global Golf Post’s articles this week on the slump are worth the read. Instead of focusing on his poor putting or duffer-like like misses, let’s talk about his goatee.
The added facial hair and poor play reminds me of Superman III when Superman becomes dark. Sure, the film was one of the worst in the franchise but do you remember when Superman turned bad. Tiger appears to have taken the same kryptonite. Don’t be surprised if he blows out the Olympic Torch or straightens the Tower of Pisa. Maybe this week at the PGA he will win the battle against himself and return to his former self.
I am not the biggest Tiger fan and many of his life choices I do not endorse. However, I like the game better when he is in it. Maybe there is an internal voice telling Tiger it isn’t time to be dominate again. I have no doubt, despite the naysayers, that he will come back and play like Superman again.
