Tiger Woods Might Occasionally Lose a Tournament

All week long before a golf tournament, the buzz is about Tiger Woods. It's not who will win or lose, it's whether or not Tiger will win or lose. It's almost made to seem as though if anyone else wins, it's because Tiger lost. After the tournament is over and Tiger hasn't won, we get articles like this one by Michael Rosenberg of the Detroit Free Press, which almost shames Tiger for not ever winning a major when trailing after 54 holes. That's a little much, don't you think? The guy is the best golfer of all time. This article by Rosenberg just reaffirms my first paragraph, that it's all about Tiger and no one else. Instead of a column about 2008 Masters champion Trevor Immelman, it's about Woods not winning.
