LAMM AT LARGE: You Can’t Doubt Tiger

todayApril 12, 2022

Background
I was wrong.
I was wrong about Tiger Woods in a couple of ways. I never expected him to play again, much less at Augusta National, the most difficult course to walk in America.
Walking was a challenge for Tiger. Walking and competing is mind-blowing.
Okay, he finished 47th out of 52 who made the cut. He deserves a trophy for making the cut. His rounds 71, 74, 78, 78 are pedestrian scores until you consider how wobbly his legs were and how awful the weather was Friday and Saturday.
Who would have faulted him for withdrawing?
The fans, however, practically demanded he continue. My man at the Masters said fans deserted such players as Jon Rahm and Justin Thomas to follow Tiger. These days, the older, more humble Tiger obviously wants to please his fans. He smiled, waved and tipped his hat as he limped around the course.
I will never doubt Tiger again.
