#BuckFiftyADay: Tiger Woods was Bigger When he was Smaller
The players on the PGA Tour need Tiger Woods. Need TW to be
relevant if they want to make the stupid money they’ve gotten used to making.
I’m a golf fan who will watch anything, from the Frys.com to the Big Break, but
players won’t get silly rich on me. And the sport will fade to niche again.
They need sports fans. They need the crowd that Tiger brought them, for reasons
good and bad. But you have to wonder if the Tour will ever reap the Tiger
Effect again. And am I the only person who wonders why players who look skinny,
and players who look fat, don’t seem to suffer anywhere near the number of
injuries that Tiger has had to deal with, basically, since he transformed his
physique form sinewy to muscle-bound? Sinewy Tiger hit it farther. Sinewy Tiger won
more. And Sinewy Tiger wasn’t always injured.
