We wrote for today’s paper about Tiger Woods’ tendency to play slow and steady rather than accelerate at this year’s PGA Championship after taking a four-shot lead through two rounds. It was an approach that ultimately cost him — and one that was punctuated by an apt metaphor when a turtle crossed his path on the 7th hole Sunday (pictured).
Tiger tried to wait out Y.E. Yang with pars, but Yang’s gutsy shot-making ended up turning many folks into the gallery Sunday into converted fans. They might have come to see Tiger, but a good many ended up cheering for the underdog. Our questions this morning are simple: Which camp did you find yourself in, and why?
Also, Newbie thinks we’re a jinx. Feel free to discuss that as well.
