Tomorrow, I expect to see in some publication the headline: Tiger 2 PGA Tour 0. Granted, this headline would not be completely true. But, at the Buick Invitational, Olazabal, Garcia, Lefty, and Nathan Green folded and allowed Tiger to win ugly. (See our coverage here, here, here, here, and here). Basically, Tiger beat Olazabal in a playoff without much problem.

Then today, no one put pressure on Tiger, and he coasted to victory at the Ford Championships at Doral. Granted, I would never have expected Tiger to finish bogey, bogey, but as he said, “A win’s a win” in his post round interview. Today, David Toms, Rich Beem, and many, many others bogeyed the last hole, the “Blue Monster.” But, Toms’ bogey on the last hole gave Tiger a 2-shot lead standing back in the fairway. Tiger then proceeded to hit the ball into a right greenside bunker (all he wanted to do was keep it “inside the grandstands”), and made he bogey and thrust his hands in victory.

All I wanted was to see someone push Tiger. Someone to force Tiger to make birdie on the last hole. Heck a par would have sufficed today. I am a golf fan and I want to see the best players play at the TOP of their game, not just with the game they brought. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed watching the tournament. Villegas will be something special and Toms’ run at the end at least had me watching till the end. But, watching Tiger win, especially this way AGAIN, I agree totally with Johnny Miller who was disappointed with the PGA Tour.

Come on guys. If you GUYS ARE GOOD! Let’s see someone press Tiger down the stretch!!!
