I don’t. Really.
All I did was innocently predict back in 2010 that the now world number 111 would never win another major championship.
Since then, I have received nothing but hate mail every time the guy chokes away another one.
News flash: It’s not my fault every time the guy yips another chip, hits a drive into the woods, chokes on a 4 foot putt, or meets another Perkins waitress.
Contrary to popular belief, I do not control the news flow as it pertains to one of the biggest quitters on the PGA Tour (eight times in his career).
All I do is report the facts-as they happen. I leave it up to the mighty listeners of 97.1 The Ticket to interpret them.
For instance, on a recent Karsch and Anderson show update I pointed out how the mighty Tiger had actually shot a 30 on the front nine of a practice round without throwing a single club or injuring a spectator with an errant shot.
Therefore, no one can say that I ignore positive news about world number 111.
The only place you will regularly hear opinions about Tiger from me is on “Lesson ON Golf”-Saturdays 7am on 97.1 The Ticket and on Twitter @jefflesson. Everywhere else it’s just the facts.
I am amused by Tiger returning to play the Masters with the most obvious case of the yips in golf history-at the toughest course to chip at in the world.
I wish him well. Really.
