Tiger Woods= Duffer

Heck, when I was in my prime as a duffer golfer, I could do better than Tiger Woods as today he shot an 85 at the Memorial golf tourney.
From ESPN:  The slow, steady progress that Tiger Woods said he has been making with his golf game came to a sudden, ugly halt on Saturday at Muirfield Village Golf Club.
At the place where he has won five times, Woods shot a career-worst 85, including a quadruple-bogey 8 on the 18th hole.
He made just one birdie and dropped to last place in the Memorial Tournament, six strokes behind the next-lowest player in the field, Lucas Glover
Justin Rose shot a 6-under 66 on Saturday that gave him a three-shot lead and put him 27 strokes ahead of Woods.
"Obviously that's a tough round to swallow,'' said Rose, the 2013 U.S. Open champion who works with Sean Foley, Woods' former coach. "You can't really blame the weather or this or that. It's a course he's played well on. I'm not sure I have any advice really at this point. That's just a tough round to swallow, really.''
Because there are just 71 players, Woods will play alone, first off, on Sunday morning.
I have predicted for several years that Wood never win another major tournament.  Now, I predict Woods will never win another PGA sponsored tournament as well.
Other PGA golfer no longer fear Woods and they are much younger and stronger than Woods.
It's time for Woods to hang up the golf cleats and retire.  It is becoming embarrassing to watch Woods bomb out of just about every tournament he is in and in other tournaments that he does bad in, he claims injury and drops out.
So, Tiger, if a duffer like myself can come close to beaing you, it's time to think about retirement.
