I love following the career of Tiger Woods. He’s great to write about, great to talk about and great to watch. But enough is enough. I’ve had two people tell me this week, it’s overkill. And I’m inclined to agree.
Enough of Tiger. We had the great weekend. Then the playoff. Then the surgery announcement. That’s enough. Let’s go free of Tiger for awhile.
I won’t write about him. I won’t talk about him on the radio. I’ll try not to think about him, though when Fred Funk and some dude from Wales are in a British Open playoff, it’s going to be tempting to wish for Tiger.
Truth is, we overinflate the interest in golf. Did you see the TV ratings for the U.S. Open, which concluded about 8 p.m. Sunday , and the Game 4 of the NBA Finals, which tipped off about 8 p.m. Sunday? Nationally, the NBA carried the day, 10.1-8.5. In the Oklahoma City market, it was 13something to 8something.
Many more people watched basketball, even though Tiger was gunning for the Open title. That surprised me and was very telling. I know it was Celtics-Lakers, but still. The NBA beat the Open virtually head to head.
So starting now, I’m going Tiger-free until further notice.
