Anyone that would ask that question does not know golf. Tiger not making the Cut at the us open is like the sun not comming up in the morning. It just won't happen. Tiger looks way more comfortable on the course then he has looked in many years. I am not basing it on his last tournement, even tho he showed the old way of taking over and winning, im basing it on golf, It is hard to play the game, even harder to make the cut, but Tiger has only missed 7 cuts in a career. No ohter player in history has missed so few cuts for the number of tournements. Phil the great has missed moer than 30. Rory missed 3 in a row and i dont know the number that he has missed i would guess he has already missed at least 7. if you put it at 50/50 your not a fan and probably not in tune with Tiger and the sport of golf.
Rory has missed at least 2 cuts each year since turning pro......so probably 8-9 in his young career!
Here is an interesting quote from Paul Azinger regarding Rory's missed cuts. This was in today issue of SB Nation online.
Another notable group will be defending champ Rory McIlroy, world No. 1 Luke Donald, and Lee Westwood teeing off at 4:29 p.m. Thursday from the first tee. Strange’s colleague Paul Azinger shrugged off McIlroy’s recent struggles, saying his three consecutive missed cuts were “just no big deal.
“He's only 23 years old,” Zinger noted, although he disagreed with those players who dubbed McIlroy “the next Tiger Woods” as the young Northern Irishman was clubbing them into submission during last year’s Open.
“He's not Tiger Woods,” Azinger said. “He missed seven cuts in one year. Tiger missed eight cuts in 14 years. So he's a normal kid, and he plays abnormal golf. He's unbelievable. An unbelievable player. I love watching him swing the club.
“But,” Azinger reiterated, “he's not Tiger.”
BUT THEN WHO IS TIGER. THE ONE AND THE ONLY TIGER WOODS!!! GO TIGER! BEAT 18!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now there is a comparison. Sergio has just never lived up to his hype.
Tiger had a goal that he set at a very early age. He continues to strive daily to reach that goal. Not very many people have a goal when they are a child that they will work that hard for even into adulthood. As you said about Sergio, they may have the talent but they do not have the dedication. Strictly because of Tiger's dedication, I hope he achieves his goal.
