I can't imagine that his mega-deals with his sponsors are going to keep holding up if he doesn't start winning soon.

He's already lost a bunch of his deals, all of the big ones other than Nike. And I expect that one has been renegotiated with performance clauses.

His 'nut' is pretty steep, $400,000 a month or so for that new home with its 4 hole golf course; his 150' hole in the water, Privacy, with it's permanent crew of 13; a private jet (or two); it adds up.

That explains his expanded foreign schedule where he's been getting $1-2 million appearance fees.

Yep.

I have no idea how he survived yesterday, that Gonzo guy must be kicking himself in the ass pretty bad.

Tiger needs to relax, he's wound way too tight. But rather than joining a pile of blondes in that 10,000 sq. ft. bachelor pad, I think he should curl up with a good book. Maybe by an author he knows well.

Close, but no cigar. Nice final round, though.

Nice job by Rory to finish it off, should be a big confidence boost for next month.

Rory has become tough-minded, to go along with his glorious golf swing and world-class touch. It's going to be tough to climb past him to #1, and Tiger is not going to be that guy. He beat Tiger like a piñata at the Honda, Tiger's best Sunday round ever was not enough.

Please let him match Adam Scott and be paired with or right behind him tomorrow.
