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.
exactly......Tiger has not only the dedication but also the extraordinary talent. I believe he will reach that goal set as a youngster as long as he remains healthy. That's the key......staying healthy!!
Here's to Tiger and good health!!
GO TIGER! BEAT 18!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Agree, NY.....no comparison to Tiger!! No one can compare.....not even Jack! Jack may hold the major record right now, but Tiger will break it!! As for Rory.....you are right on! Focus is now on "life outside the course" aka Carolyn......
I was sad to see rory miss the cut 3 tournements in a row. I see we have someone leaning toward being a troll... or am i mising something.?
