Could the U.S Open be Tiger's First Major Win in a Decade?

    I'm not that big into golf, but I do like to keep track of well known players in most sports, especially a Goliath such as Tiger Woods. He's faced countless injuries to both his career, reputation and body. All of that combined can definitely have an impact on a golfers game. It's the tenth anniversary of Tiger's last major win, and some people are thinking he's through or due. There's a strong argument for his improvement this year. He tied for 23rd at the Memorial Tournament, shooting 9 under par, and according to the dude in the video, Tiger claimed he hadn't "hit it" that well in 5 years. His putting was another story. You have to give the guy something for his persistence. He hasn't given up despite the setbacks and the drought. Could this be number 15 for him?

    That 2008 Tiger win at the US Open was bar none my favorite day of watching golf. I would honestly love to see him have some kind of a repeat of that day. He has it in him to rise to the occasion like almost no golfer that's ever lived. So I hope he contends. It's tough competition though, and like you said, he has been through so much in the last decade. Odds are against him. But he is getting better. So I'll be watching and rooting for him.

    Yeah, I'll definitely be rooting for him. I just think there are so many distractions out there from the real story. Such as all this hoopla about him docking his yacht at the course. I think people tend to forget he's the best golfer to ever live. It's like the people who took for granted that Elvis was still alive. lol

    It's definitely not looking good right now and he doesn't have much time to turn it around if he even wants to make the cut, let alone have a chance at winning. He has to have a tremendous round today in order to get into the top 60.

    I love Tiger and was really hoping that he was going to have a breakout weekend, but it appears that we're going to have to wait another day for him to win his next major.
