Tiger Woods and the return
of the fist pump

Tampa Bay Times, by Tom Jones

Original Article

Posted By:Hazymac, 3/10/2018 11:14:19 PM

PALM HARBOR — Here´s how you know Tiger Woods is back: The fist pump. The patented Tiger fist pump made its first appearance at the Valspar Championship on Saturday. It wasn´t the full-fledged, right-uppercut-while-screaming, just-took-the-lead-at-the-U.S. Open fist pump. But, make no mistake, it was a fist pump, followed by a broad smile and a tip of the cap to an Innisbrook crowd that was going downright bonkers. At that moment, even Tiger got caught up in the emotion of what is turning out to be an incredible week. For him. For us. For golf. On a make-or-break Saturday, Woods made the most of it

As recently as 2013 Tiger has won five times and was Player of the Year. He has had four back operations in recent years, the most recent one a last resort spinal fusion. But since returning to competition he has had top five finishes, and appears well enough to win again. He still has the brain that took him to all those wins. Tomorrow will be fun. Many good players in the hunt.

The Tiger Woods Show.

Was anyone else there? Glimpses of Connors, who is making amazing putts and is ahead. Glimpses of Snedeker because he is paired with Tiger. And has the same score at the end of Round 3, though you wouldn’t know it. The others might as well have stayed home.

As for Tiger, shocking pink shirt and bun-hugging pants to show off his derriere, photographed from every angle. Cameras following him everywhere but the men’s room. (I presume even gods have to pee now and then.) Grown men gushing over him like preteen girls over their boy band heartthrobs.

The sponsors are getting their money´s worth this week. Parking lots are full, and Copperhead is playing tough, as usual.

Your humble correspondent has a personal interest in whether Tiger can make a successful comeback after possible career ending back injuries. My problem is crippling spinal stenosis around L3-L4 that has been somewhat improved by epidural and Gabapentin, nut only somewhat improved. Standing for more than a few minutes and walking farther than 300 yards is impossible, and my doctors have told me that I cannot ever play again. If Tiger wins another tournament .... Well, maybe I can find his surgeon (back surgery is very iffy) and eventually play again. Hope springs eternal.

Sorry to hear of your painful back, Hazy. My adult grandson had horrific pain in about that same area for years due to an injury. Finally the epidurals and the gabapentin no longer worked and he went to Dr. Siddique, a surgeon in Beverly Hills.

That was last summer. He told me the other day that he has no back pain now. Has been back at (strenuous) work for some months. He is younger than you, but his regular spine man at Loma Linda Medical Center had urged him to wait as long as possible for surgery as there “were so many new techniques coming”.

In his case, he has a new disc….

I´ve not missed Woods´ hateful demeanor one bit but that´s what he needs to win. He has always carried himself as bigger than golf and the kneepad sports media have been happy to feed that. For all the other pros out there this weekend, gack indeed.

I checked out the Golf Channel´s web site the last couple tourneys Woods was in. On the front page, averaging 25-30+ images of or stories about freakin´ Tiger Woods. Not going anywhere near TGC this week. Cripes.

Maybe the pros have benefited with bigger purses but Woods ushered in an era of over building and ill considered investments, the game is in trouble.

No question about it, Tiger Woods is a rogue. But, whom in golf isn´t---I´ll answer for you. Jack Nicklaus. There was NEVER even a hint of impropriety of behavior during his career; yet, he was never really liked by the majority of golf fans. Arnold Palmer, the most popular pro was a serial philander, who openly cheated on his wife Winnie (I used to feel sorry for her).

I am glad to see Tiger back. I have enjoyed watching his career unfold.

Tiger is at the risk of popping a ligament, tendon or muscle at any second, from a golf swing or a sneeze or the wrong move.
That is the reality of the situation.

Life was better after Tiger flamed out. I don´t watch golf but it sounds like the fans are again being subjected to coverage similar to that of his ex-ho at the Olympics. Doesn´t matter whether they win or lose or what their excuses are - they´re the star. Grew tired years ago of those non-stop tournament re-caps that told us who was atop the leader board and how many strokes back Tiger was.

Science fiction author Kim Stanley Robinson is one of the best-known names in a genre known for looking forward. However, not all writers in the genre look to the future for their ideas -- plenty are obsessed with moving backwards, from liberty back to tyranny. Robinson recently penned an op-ed in The Guardian that favors removing humans from most of the world, forcefully herding us all into cities. "The tendency of people to move to cities, either out of desire or perceived necessity, creates a great opportunity. If we managed urbanisation properly, we could nearly remove ourselves from a considerable percentage of

Jackie Lacey Won´t Charge the LAPD Officer Who Shot Brendon Glenn, Some Ask: When Would She Prosecute?” The story ran under the bylines of three writers -- Cindy Chang, Kate Mather, and Marisa Gerber -- who collectively seem aghast that a now-former Los Angeles Police Department officer will not face prosecution for the May 2015 shooting death of a man in Venice, a beachside area on L.A.’s west side. “If there was

As an almost-lifelong Hoosier, I´m proud to watch Mike Pence live his life a heartbeat away from the presidency. I was taken aback when Trump picked him, but if they´d flipped the ticket, I would´ve gladly voted Pence/Trump. Over the past year, Pence has won me over by showing a more presidential comportment than the actual president. As far as I´m concerned, Pence will make a fine POTUS in 4-8 years. And a lot of liberals seem to agree that it´s a done deal, because they can´t stop shrieking about how awful he is. We saw it at the Winter Olympics,

TAMPA — A veteran circus acrobat fell to his death Saturday during what he told fans was a new routine, one he was performing for the first time. "After so much work and training and staging, our straps duo act is finally in the show tonight. It’s time to go for it," Yann Arnaud, who has been with Cirque du Soleil for 15 years, wrote Saturday on Instagram.

Investigators have determined that Pepin Academies executive director Craig Butz was at fault in the Sept. 23 boating accident that took his life. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission investigators said the crash was caused by Butz through "operator inexperience and inattention," according to a Jan. 16 accident report. Alcohol was also a contributing factor, the report said, as Butz’s blood-alcohol level was 0.156, which is almost twice the level at which Florida law presumes a driver is impaired. Butz and his family were staying at a house on Clearwater Beach the weekend of the accident, the report said. At about 4:30

Some students at Kennesaw State University outside Atlanta have filed a lawsuit against the university, and for a very good reason. They are members of the Young Americans for Freedom, and they allege they’re the victims of discriminatory treatment by the administration. The facts aren’t complicated. The group invited Katie Pavlich to visit the campus and speak, a reasonable choice given her editorship of TownHall, the right-leaning news site. But Pavlich’s profile promised to spark controversy and, hence, the need for more security. So the administration added an extra $320 in costs for the event and billed the students. YAF was

Johns Hopkins University wants to form its own police department with armed, sworn police officers to patrol its university and hospital campuses. The University already has its own security personnel, approximately 1,000 strong. Even so, last Fall there were 16 gunpoint robberies around its main campus in Baltimore. Thus, the Baltimore delegation to the state general assembly will propose legislation to enable Hopkins to have its own police department. The plan has the support of Baltimore’s police chief and its mayor. Activists and some local politicians are wary of the idea, though. So, apparently is the Washington Post. Reporters Ian Duncan and

I have a thread of optimism still in me. I believe we will, in November, see a tsunami of people coming to the polls and after that I hope you, both of you, and the other senators, do their job,” Moore said during a town hall on “Inequality in America: The Rise of Oligarchy and Collapse of the Middle Class” organized by Sen.

March for Our Lives and the school walkout isn’t about gun violence; it’s about indoctrination. And there’s no age limit. Sixteen years ago, David Horowitz and the Freedom Center unveiled the Academic Bill of Rights to protect intellectual diversity on college campuses. But now the same indoctrination and intolerance urgently demand that the Freedom Center step in to protect K-12 students from political abuse. The ugly scenes from the student walkout haunt our screens as the classroom organizers of the left work to turn students into the latest anti-American protest movement after Black Lives Matter and Antifa.

Since the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, the most extraordinary things keep happening. A surge of protests forces Florida’s first small steps on gun control in 22 years. Students by the thousands stage walkouts at high schools nationwide to keep gun safety in the public mind. Momentum gathers for a huge demonstration Saturday in Washington to force action from Congress. And now arises the chance — with long odds, but a chance nonetheless — of getting a proposed amendment onto November’s ballot that would allow Floridians to place a ban on assault-style rifles in the state Constitution.

Jared Moskowitz, D-Coral Springs, called out Republicans Ron DeSantis and Adam Putnam for their stances on gun reform.

Hillary Clinton continues to attack President Trump while abroad, this time during an interview with a Dutch news network. During the interview, which took place on March 13, Clinton alleged that Trump is undermining the presidency in exchange for personal and familial gain. “He has undermined the office and used it to enrich himself and his family,” Clinton said. “Disregarded laws, ethical standards.” “He’s crossed into a territory of behavior and actions that are unpredictable, that are erratic, that are undermining the stability of the global order,” she continued. Clinton came under fire last week during a trip to India when she

James Kallstrom is no joke. With nearly thirty years in the FBI, several of them as the Assistant Director, Kallstrom knows how the agency functions far more than most. So when he says there was a plot to protect Hillary Clinton from prosecution and to illegally influence the 2016 Election people should pay attention. Kallstrom goes on to call the entirety of the FBI investigation against Donald Trump completely phony. Maria Bartiromo’s own take appears very much to compliment Mr. Kallstrom’s assertions. The Deep State shenanigans run very deep and in 2016 are linked to the Obama White House. Barack Obama

President Trump says he didn´t collude with Russia in 2016, promising something to a foreign country in exchange for his installation as president. That seems increasingly likely to prove true. Where they do not spring from simple malignancy, critics’ arguments that Trump used Russian intervention to win the election are mostly an excuse to avoid the plain truth that Hillary Clinton deservedly lost because she was an awful candidate. And the country is better for that result. We aren’t persuaded, either, that the Russians’ paltry $100,000 in Facebook spending had anything to do with Trump’s win, given that very little of it

Discussing cities is like talking about the knots in a net: they’re crucial, but they’re only one part of the larger story of the net and what it’s supposed to do. It makes little sense to talk about knots in isolation when it’s the net that matters. Cities are part of the system we’ve invented to keep people alive on Earth. People tend to like cities, and have been congregating in them ever since the invention of agriculture, 10,000 or so years ago. That’s why we call it civilisation. This origin story underlines how agriculture made cities possible, by providing

After making a name for herself at Fox News, in large part thanks to her headline-making feud with Donald Trump, Megyn Kelly was courted by NBC and offered a reported $23 million per year to bring her star power to the Peacock Network. This made her the highest-paid anchor at NBC following Matt Lauer´s departure, but unfortunately, courting Kelly may not have been a smart investment.  Her first attempt at success, a Sunday night news magazine dubbed Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly, debuted in June 2017 and soon proved to be a flop. Come September, the network moved her to a daily talk
