Tiger Woods up big entering final
round at Bridgestone Invitational

Washington Times (D.C), by Rusty Miller

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 8/4/2013 11:18:18 AM

AKRON, Ohio — With an elite field chasing the lead, Tiger Woods decided to play keep-away. Already up by a staggering seven shots through 36 holes thanks to a career-tying best of 61 in the second round, Woods shot a solid 2-under 68 on Saturday in the Bridgestone Invitational to maintain that same seven-stroke lead. It was as if he was turning around and daring the world’s best players to come after him. No one really could.“You know, today was a day that I didn’t quite have it,” said Woods, who was at 15-under 195. “But I scored.

After so many years without a win I do not understand why we have to hear about how close he is to winning. Maybe he should be a symbol for the Republican Party.

So... how did he do in the British Open? We all know about his golfing and personal history, but the constant raving coverage and hysterics by the media, mostly TV, is so irritating that I normally tune out.

Yesterday an announcer billed what they were doing as "The Tiger Show". There was precious little coverage of anyone else until TW got into trouble late in the day.

The announcers - especially the Brit - were preciously gushing.

While it´s true that Tiger has not won a major championship since the ´08 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines, he´s working on his fifth win of the season--by far the most on Tour--and regained his #1 in the world ranking early this season after his third victory of ´13. The old expression "horses for courses" applies to him at Firestone, where he has won repeatedly over the years.

It´s also possible that with the more popular and far more personable Mickelson zooming back up to #2 in the world (with #1 in sight with a win at the PGA Championship next week in Rochester), Tiger had to play better to hold off Phil. Great players relish a challenge. Now Tiger´s got a challenger. But not this week.

Although he lost me as a fan several years ago, and is on thin ice with his low class profane outbursts on the course, which no great player ever did before in public, he´s still the best player of his generation, setting a standard of excellence that will be hard for anyone else to match, let alone top. If he´s in a tournament, he brings people to the course and viewers to telecasts.

It will be his 8th win at Bridgestone. He might even tie his tournament record of 259. It´s going to be all about Tiger today. 8 wins in 15 years is pretty amazing.

FWIW Firestone has some history of giant blowouts.

Considering just how important TW is, I now suggest all future US Opens, PGA´s and -- alternating years in deference to history -- Masters be played at Firestone.

"According to the numbers, Phil won´t pass Tiger for No. 1 anytime soon"

http://blogs.golf.com/presstent/2013/07/according-to-the-numbers-phil-wont-top-tiger-anytime-soon.html#ixzz2b1D1tlL1

This was written before the Firestone. Even if Phil won BOTH Firestone and PGA, AND Tiger got 0 points in both - still Tiger would remain # 1.

Now that Tiger is about to win Firestone and will head to PGA with momentum, Phil has a much harder task.

Tiger lost the 2013 Masters only because his shot was perfect, hit the flagstick and cost him 2 strokes.

Tiger will win 100+ tour events and go down as the GOAT. While most people are fixated on the Majors, the fact is Tiger has won 18 WGC events (which bring the best players of the world, just like the Majors - the Firestone has 48 of the top 50 players in the world, for example). That is what is called phenomenal. Plus by the time he reaches Phil´s current age, he will have won the 4 majors needed to tie the Bear. Note that at Tiger´s current age, Phil had 0 Majors or was it 1?

I am totally fed up with the amount of headline space and column inches devoted to colored people in this nation! Coloreds comprise 12% of the population, yet they are the tail that wags the once-mighty dog.

Yes, we are a nation of cowards, cowed by coloreds backed up by the PC police.

I think it´s past time to free ourselves from the phony slavery guilt, tenderness toward these poor victims, and the self-censoring fear of being called a ´racist.´

Full disclosure: I discriminate...on the basis of relevant variables.

#8 deserves a response. By the time Phil reached age 37 (Tiger´s age), he had three majors: ´04 and ´06 Masters, ´05 PGA. Note that I didn´t say that Phil would rise to #1 in the world with a win a Oak Hill, only that #1 would be in sight. If he manages to win two majors this year, he will narrow the margin between #2 and #1, no matter how many non-majors Tiger wins. Earlier this season he had fallen to #8 in the world. Going from there to #2 as quickly as he did is remarkable. Since he has a reputation for playing well at Augusta and at the U.S. Open, getting to the top spot for the first time in his career is conceivable, if difficult.

It doesn´t matter how many WCG events Tiger wins. They´re important events, but not majors. Will Tiger get to 100 wins? Almost surely he will. But in 1999-2001 he was on a different plane mentally as he won major after major and his numerical performance average topped 31 (which is a record that won´t be beaten in our lifetimes). That´s incredible. Since his ´09 fall he´s been able to win lesser events--sometimes almost at will--but he has not managed to put it together in the big four. Winning five majors in a career is beyond the abilities of all except the greatest players. Chronologically, Tiger´s career is about two-thirds over. Certainly, he could win five more majors and surpass Nicklaus, but I don´t believe he´s as strong mentally as he used to be. I´d give him no better than a 50/50 chance. And I´m not pulling for him as I did a decade ago.

Perfect is in the hole. Illegal drop should have been penalized. Yet another blot on TW that he didn´t withdraw. Woods didn´t win because Adam Scott had a better score. Awaiting more historical revision...

Wasn´t gonna comment until the match was over so as to not jinx Tiger, but I´m concerned about the absence of the usual crisp analysis of my buddy HazyMac...more coffee! Every win matters on the PGA Tour and Tiger is bidding for # 79...Phil is Phil and Tiger is Tiger...Phil is hall fame with 5 majors, his first coming at age 34, and is likely to win more tourneys...if Tiger remains healthy, he´ll set the record for majors and PGA wins to go along with being #3 on the European Tour...I just like the fact that if the WGC ended now, 8 of the top 10 in the FedEx are Americans and those are the footsteps Tiger was hearing as he was in jeopardy of losing his #1 spot in that ranking to Kuchar, Snedeker, or Phil...

My husband and I had volunteer for the PGA tour in various major championships. It is fun. You get to meet the golfers. They all take the time to talk to people. Tiger, on the other hand,is not friendly at all. His rants on the course are not good for the image of golf. He is definitely a good golfer, but he won´t surpass the Bear. Now Tiger is known for his moral behavior and his mojo is not the same.

Tiger will win. He´s a great front runner, and never loses when ahead. One of the biggest raps against him is that when he´s behind, but still in contention, he inevitably collapses, especially in the majors. When not in contention, he will usually find a reason to withdraw from the last round. That alone will keep me from acknowledging him as the GOAT.

Appreciate # 12 as always.

Just wanted to hear his opinion about the depth of golf these days. Now it is not just the Majors. WGC brings together the top players from around the world. Fedex cup brings together the top players on the PGA TOUR, 4 times in a row. So to win these events, you have to beat the best competition, just like the Majors. The courses may not be as challenging in WGC/Fedex of course.

GOAT = greatest of all time. I think it started with Roger Federer in tennis. Or Michael Jordan long before Federer.

U.S. military assets in the Black Sea are on high alert amid reports Ukraine troops traded gunfire Tuesday with pro-Russian militants. A journalist with Associated Press reported intense gunfire at an airport in eastern Ukraine after the government sent in army troops to retake control from militiamen loyal to Russian President Vladimir Putin. The mayor of Kramatorsk told the Associated Press that Ukrainian troops have now occupied the military airport and are blocking its entrance. The action comes a day after the revelation a Russian fighter jetted buzzed a U.S.S. destroyer multiple times over the Black Sea.

House Democrats are rolling out a new strategy to target 30 House Republicans on immigration reform during the two-week congressional recess, marking a last-ditch effort to force GOP action on a legislative overhaul. The new pressure tactic includes a memo distributed to those 30 districts held by Republicans who have expressed public support for some sort of immigration reform, many of them backing a pathway to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants in the United States. Democrats hope the document — which highlights statements made by those Republicans in favor of reform, as well as data showing the district-specific economic

Scott Walker has a 16 point lead (56-40) among likely voters in his race for governor, according to a poll from Wisconsin Public Radio/St. Norbert’s. Among registered voters, his lead is essentially the same (55-40). The survey was conducted between March 24 and April 3. A Marquette University survey conducted between March 20-23 also showed Walker with a nice, though smaller, lead. In that poll, Walker outdistanced Democrat Mary Burke 48-41. Revealingly, Walker fares well in an electorate that does not seem particularly conservative and that, if anything, appears to be slightly to the left of American voters in general.

When Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Steve Israel (N.Y.) was asked Sunday whether he thinks his Republican colleagues are racist, he responded with a frankness that is rare in politics and even less common when it comes to sensitive issues like race. "Not all of them, no, of course not," Israel said on CNN´s "State of the Union." "But to a significant extent, the Republican base does have elements that are animated by racism. And that´s unfortunate." Israel´s not the only high-ranking Democrat to advance some version of that argument recently. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said that Republican reluctance

Three percent said their federal taxes are "too low." Gallup says the percentage who say their taxes are "too high" has hovered around 50 percent since 2003, although the current 52 percent is up from the 46 percent who said "too high" two years ago.

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)
