Tiger struggles to 2 over in Phoenix

The difference between practice and the bright lights inside the ropes seemed miles apart for Tiger Woods on Thursday, who talked positively about his game heading into the Waste Management Phoenix Open but showed there is plenty of work ahead.

Woods, playing his first tournament of 2015 and just his second since August, got off to a rough start before salvaging a 2-over-par 73 at TPC Scottsdale by playing the last six holes in 3 under.

Tiger Woods is playing even worse today than he did yesterday. He's seven over par for today's round after eight holes. He's now nine over for the tournament. The cut line is projected to be even par. It sure looks like Tiger will be missing the cut.

Things certainly are not going well for Woods.

Tiger Suffers Injury, Withdraws From Farmers

For the third time in his past nine tournaments, Tiger Woods has withdrawn with a back injury.

Woods made it to the green on his 12th hole Thursday at Torrey Pines North Course before calling it quits in the first round of the Farmers Insurance Open.

It's time for Tiger to announce his first retirement.

Take the next 10 years off, get healthy, stay healthy, enjoy your new romance, reconnect with the kids etc.

Then at age 50 make the Senior Pro Golf Tour the #1 most watched where fans and players will all enjoy.

This story will have a happy ending!
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

No way Tiger retires without trying to get Jack's majors record.
Who knows maybe his back really is bothering him ;)

No doubt it, he was one of the best of his era.

Billy Casper Dies At Age 83

The accolades poured in overnight as word spread that one of golf's great champions had passed away, fitting for a man whose accomplishments seemed to only be appreciated the farther away we got from them.

Undoubtedly Billy Casper was overshadowed in the 1960s by the "Big Three" of Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player.

Tiger: My game needs 'a lot of work'

Tiger Woods said his golf is not acceptable for the PGA Tour and he will not return until it is.

Woods shot a career-worst 82 to miss the cut in the Phoenix Open by 12 shots. He was playing poorly at Torrey Pines when he withdrew after 11 holes because of tightness in his back.
