Yesterday, I wrote that I expected Tiger to make the cut—I was even thinking easily—if only because of the relative paucity of talent at the Frys.Com Open. I set the bar low, and Tiger failed to clear it. He was beaten by his amateur partner by four strokes.
I still expect him to play on the weekend, but the sight of him losing balls, driving wildly and missing critical putts can’t be encouraging to Fred Couples. I’ve written that I thought Fred made a mistake in giving Tiger a Captain’s Pick, and I stick to my belief. Its true that he was playing in the rain—but then so was his partner Patrick Cantlay, who shot -2.
Tiger should withdraw from the President’s Cup.
UPDATE: I just read this: for the YEAR, Tiger is just 7 under.
