Tiger gutted it out through 91 holes to win this year's U.S. Open! Unreal. One has to wonder if he did more, or permanent damage to that left knee. It's no doubt that many a tournament director on the pro circuit are hurting too, this morning. Many believe, as I, that he's going to be off the tour for awhile. The British Open and PGA Championship in July and August are cringing at this moment. True be told, no Tiger--no high TV ratings (and less ad revenue). And those are the majors. Any of the regular (and thus lesser) PGA tournaments, with no Tiger in the field will give them (and PGA Commissioner Finch) a real ache in their heads and wallets. At least my one prediction turned true: he hit the first hole's fairway in the 18-hole playoff, parred it and eventually won!
