The Tiger Slump?

Think of the greatest athletes you can? Michael Jordan, Wayne Gretzky, and Barry Bonds(pre or post steroids the man is a still a stud) Now try to remember anytime where they struggled in their prime? Sure Mike had the years we forget in Washington and Wayne lost some speed late in his career but never a complete drop off. Could we be witnessing that from Tiger?

After his domestic problems we expected Tiger to come back and dominate just as he always had. He would take a while to get back in the swing of things sure but eventually he would regain his cut throat style that made him so successful. What is happening this weekend is exactly the opposite! It’s like watching Greg Maddux not be able to locate a fastball or MJ missing his patented fade away, Tiger Woods is at +11 and in 78th place out of 80! He shot a 75 today dangerously close to the unthinkable 80 mark.

Could we be witnessing something that we have never witnessed in our lifetime? The absolute best player in a sport falling off so sharply that he is forced to retire. No player on the Tour fears him anymore and who knows if Tiger even thinks he can win anymore?

Regardless if this is a minor set back before he returns to form or the beginning of the end of one of the greatest careers ever please pay attention. Either way you will be viewing something that you are not likely to see again. Normally decline is gradual not a sharp downward spike, right now we are at the top of that spike waiting to be slammed down or held up like one of Tiger’s check swings.
