The pundits are still talking about Tiger’s “early” exit from the PGA.
For those of you who missed it, Tiger apparently left for home on Sunday night before the Monday finish of the final round of the Major. If the leaders slipped a bit Monday morning, there was an outside chance that he could get into a playoff.
As it happened, Phil Mickelson finished in fine fashion and took his second major.
There must have been three dozen articles written on Tiger’s exit, but I don’t see why its such a big deal. As important as the majors are to him (supposedly), he must have made a rational calculation that Phil was not going to falter (how’s that for a bit of alliteration?)
Message to golf punditry: Its time to move on.
