If there ever was a good example of just how much better Tiger Woods is at golf than the rest of the world, it's this week at the Australian Masters. Sure, we get to see him smoke PGA Tour fields six or seven times a year, but somethings different about this one.
Maybe it has to deal with him playing in such a different time zone, so waking up each morning to catch up on the score is another "how many strokes is Tiger winning by now" game that we're playing with each other. Maybe it has to do with a weaker field, something Tiger never plays in. Whatever it is, Tiger's three shot lead after a Friday 68 means that he will win and the only hanging question is by how many.
The new Tiger game deals with fairways and putts. So far at Kingston Heath Golf Club, El Tigre has hit 25 of 30 fairways (advantage, Woods) and made just one bogey through 36 holes.
He's going to card his seventh victory of the season. It's happening, and don't look at me with those eyes. I'm not playing the screaming heads card, I just believe when Tiger is up three shots on guys named Greg Chalmers, Jason Dufner and James Nitties, lets just say he probably isn't losing sleep.
