The Tiger effect: why you don’t want to be paired with Tiger on Sunday

Third round leader at +2 Aaron Baddeley shot 80 yesterday in the final round of the U.S. Open. Stuart Appleby, third rounder leader at +2 at the Masters, shot 75. What do they have in common? Both played with Tiger Woods and played horribly. It’s understandable, though, because the media and fan attention that Tiger draws–not to mention the intimidation factor–has to be a little nerve-wracking.

Come to think of it: The only person who I can remember ever playing well in Tiger Woods’s group on Sunday in a final pairing was Hal Sutton, who defeated Tiger, head to head, at the Players.
