I can't wait to see how Tiger comes back. No doubt he will be a little rusty as I hear he hasn't done a heap of preparation. I just hope over the next 12 months he can be injury free and get back to his best.

He's gotta learn to flex his knee, or injury free he will never be.

Face it, jocks.....'the kitten' is not a real Tiger.
A real Tiger earns and keeps respect. "The kitten" does neither. The most basic underlying principle in golf is the integrity of honesty. "The kitten" shows neither. He doesn't belong among golf tradition. He belongs among the rest of his 'class'...cheaters. Let him take his distinctive, sour face to the nearest whore parlor and stay there!
