The answer, of course, is no. He didn’t. Sure, Tiger Woods was both putrid and petulant this weekend – putrid in swinging the club, petulant in kicking it – and was a non-factor from late Friday on. But all it will take is for the next Major to roll around for Woods to dominate the golf discourse again. Should he win said Major, or any one thereafter, his pursuit of Jack’s record once again becomes the #1 story line in golf (if it isn’t still already). Still, I think the fact that I pondered this question on the way into work this morning is telling. Though it may be hard to articulate, I do think that Woods lost something more than just a tournament this weekend. Yes, he lost another opportunity at a green jacket and another of his finite amount of chances to one Major win closer to Jack. But it’s something else. For the first time in I don’t know how long, maybe ever, I didn’t need Tiger Woods to be enthralled by a golf tournament. I’ve always been more of a Tiger fan than a gol...

Tiger Woods apologized for his behavior on the course during his poor second round at Augusta. His antics included kicking a club.

Column: Woods apologizes but still struggles

Tiger Woods made a conditional apology for his petulant display in the second round of the Masters and behaved better on Saturday, but it was game rather than his demeanour that was of most concern. The peace of mind Woods used to know every time he stepped on a golf course is gone, if not for good, then certainly for the rest of this Masters. He will never get that back, at least...

Woods club-kicking does not go unnoticed

Tiger Woods is subject to discipline by the PGA Tour for kicking his golf club after a poor shot at the Masters. Whether he is fined is not likely to be known. The PGA Tour does not comment on discipline. Woods, after a bad miss with a 4-iron into the 15th hole on Friday, hit a poor tee shot with a 9-iron on the par-3 16th. He let the club fall from his hands, then turned and kicked...

Woods goes nowhere on moving day

Whether he truly believes it or not, Tiger Woods doesn't think he is out of it at Augusta National. The even-par 72 on Saturday, the 3-over total and increasing deficit might say otherwise. "Obviously I need help from the guys this afternoon," said Woods, who needed 31 putts on Saturday. "Regardless of what they do, I need to play a great round of golf tomorrow...

Woods matches worst 4-round score at Masters

Tiger Woods arrived at Augusta National as a favorite to win his fifth green jacket. Instead, it was more like amateur hour. A 74 on Sunday left Woods at 5-over 293 for the Masters, which matched his worst four-round score. He posted the first one back in 1995, when he was an amateur making his debut at Augusta National. He also was tied for 41st when he came off the course, which...

Aussie tourneys pass on Tiger's fee

Australia's top tournaments are facing a summer of golf without Tiger Woods, with no takers for his $2 million appearance fee. Woods had a huge influence on Aussie galleries the past three years with visits Down Under, but any further pitches to the former world No.1 are on hold for now. Former Victorian premier, John Brumby, said Woods' visit to the Masters in Melbourne...

Vote: Who Will Win the Masters?

Just a few days ago, Augusta, Ga., was abuzz with the possibility that Tiger Woods would break his streak of losses at major tournaments and come through with another vintage Masters win. He had just won a PGA Tour event for the first time in several years and seemed to finally have his game together. After a decent first round, though, Woods has faded back to three above par, good...

Tiger's tantrum irks fans at Masters

Tiger Woods' latest temper tantrum did not go over well with some fans at the Masters. Woods caused a scene with his boorish behavior at buttoned-down Augusta National on Friday, scowling, cursing, tossing clubs. He even went so far as to give one a swift kick after his shot on the 16th tee landed in the bunker. ''It's not what you want to see,'' said Charles...
