What the heck has happened to Tiger Woods?

    Watching this weekend's tournament and they just showed two of Woods' shots -- one from yesterday one from today.

    A topped driver off the tee that went just 122 yards and a 3-wood off the tee where he hit the ground behind the ball and it went just 188 yards.

    Those are two hacker swings. How much has he lost it? And can he ever get it back? And is this all over the breakup of his marriage and public humiliation? I thought he was much stronger than that.

    Right now I think Jack's record of 18 majors is safe. In years before I was sure Tiger was a shoo-in to break it.

    I think his problems have a lot more to do with his knee injury and his doctor being arrested in Canada with HGH and a host of performance-enhancing drugs than with speculation about what might be going on his head.

    Nothing wrong with him a roll of $1s couldn't cure. Better yet, a roll of $100s.

    The Golfer Formerly Known As Tiger went MIA on Nov. 28, 2009 and hasn't been seen since.

    Some guy named Eldrick keeps showing up at golf tournaments and he's hardly the same golfer as Tiger was.

    I've always wanted to play golf like Tiger Woods. Now, I can.

    Both shots were from the same round yesterday.

    One too many reincarnations of his swing. Thursday he talked about how he's struggling with his putting because that motion also incorporates into his full swing, and it's all under construction. That sounded absurd to me. In his prime he was an amazing putter, even underrated, so why would he even dream of messing with that?

    And of course the aura is gone. That was worth practically two shots on the first tee.

    Maybe every spectator looks like an ex-girlfriend now.

    The poontang did him in. He's not the first, won't be the last.

    On a percentage basis, there's a pretty good chance they are.
