Tiger lost. When was the last time you saw those two words in the same sentence? About six months ago. Absolutely right.
Tiger couldn't quite catch Geoff Ogilvy at the CA Championship completed Monday morning at the Blue Monster. Just like I've had such a difficult time comprehending Tiger's greatness, now -- after five straight PGA Tour wins -- I can't comprehend a loss.
So I'm going to take the easy path. I'm blaming USA Today.
Yep, that's right. They ran the big cover story on Tiger last Friday saying he's greater than Muhammad Ali, Michael Jordan, Jim Brown and Willie Mays put together. (OK, they didn't really say that, but close.)
Forget the Sports Illustrated jinx. That's so last century. There's a new jinx. And it's so USA Today. The proof is the Friday edition.
I mean, how else can you explain those missed short putts and other silly things Tiger never does?
