  •  But didn't I read some headline (0+ / 0-)

    just in the last 2 weeks about Tiger losing a tournament to some dude who had never won one?  I don't think he was ahead in that one, but I'm certain he didn't win it.  Doesn't that make the subject of this diary all the more believable?

      because Tiger won two weeks ago. And he won last week. And this tournament today was a major. It would be like Federico Gil beating Nadal or Federer to win the Australian Open (instead of the BCR Open Romania or something like it).

        Sorry, it's obvious I really don't know enough about golf to engage in a conversation about it.  However, I could've sworn that some time in the few weeks, I saw a series of headlines about a golf tournament in which Woods was trailing, expected to catch up but ultimately lost to some guy who had never won one before.  Obviously I was wrong, or I got facts garbled.  Anyway, I appreciate you trying to put the impact of this diary in terms I can appreciate!

      both PGA events played in the last 2 weeks.

      This was the first Major that Tiger's lost after having the lead after 3 days.  His record is now 14-1.  It's a big deal.
