Please Retire, Tiger Woods
It's really painful to watch professional athletes who think they are great but in reality, they suck.
Tiger Woods comes to mind.
From ESPN: Give Tiger Woods credit for showing a sense of humor, because there certainly was not much to smile about for him Friday.
After shooting 82, his worst score as a professional, at TPC Scottsdale, Woods stepped to the podium and said: "I'm just doing this so I don't get fined."
Woods laughed at his reference to Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch, but he won't be sticking around town for the Super Bowl.
He was headed back to Florida after missing the cut at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, making his first start of 2015 a shocking one to say the least.
For just the second time in his professional career, Woods failed to break 80. The missed cut was just the 13th time worldwide that he failed to qualify for the final 36 holes and the first time he has done so in back-to-back official tournaments.
Woods, 39, also matched his career-high worst nine-hole score of 44.
This is the 2nd straight tournament that Woods has played in in where he finished in last place.
Hell, even the women on the LPGA tour can beat him right now.
I have been saying for several years on this blog that Woods is all washed up.
He is getting old, he has numerous injuries and the current professional golfers don't fear him anymore.
That is a horrible combination.
Woods needs to retire and bow out gracefully while he still has a chance.
He still is marketable but if he keeps stinking up the golf course and failing to make cuts, his marketability will go down drastically.
Go out, Tiger Woods, retire and go and promote products, if you still need the money.
And stop embarrassing yourself.
