It’s been a terrible year for major championship golf ratings

I’ve always been a golf guy, whether it be playing or watching.  That’s why it’s difficult to embrace the reality that the sport is at a difficult crossroads right now.  In the wake of Tiger Woods’ loss of form and constant battle with injuries, golf has suffered in the ratings department. Much of that is very predictable.  There’s a crossover, mainstream appeal with...

Tiger Woods Has Worst Major Finish, Says He Should Make Ryder Cup Team

HOYLAKE, England — Even after his worst 72-hole finish in a major, Tiger Woods says he would pick himself for the Ryder Cup team. His first major of the year, and second tournament since March 31 back surgery, wasn’t much of an audition for U.S. captain Tom Watson.

Nope, I was greeted with an OMG, Tiger Woods is rocking pink today at the 3rd...
