Tiger Woods Didn't Get a Lot of Skin in Thailand
Go ahead and check Thailand off your list of places that Tiger Woods' golf game snuck off to. On Monday, Woods participated in a skins game in his mother's home country, only to get beat up and down the course by the other three pros competing.
Camilo Villegas and his biceps won five skins and the most money, while Paul Casey snagged nine skins and Thongchai Jaidee won three. Tiger scooped in just $6,600 for his skin before leaving the event on his private plane to Australia.
It has been a long time since Tiger played an event and had a chance to win, and as strange as it sounds, it is things like this little charity event that I think could jumpstart the man's second career with golf. If he could eventually come out at something like this, or the Chevron, and beat up the field, I think it would give him some confidence he is looking for before next season kicks off.
Still, Tiger isn't there, or even close, and the more he plays like this, the more depressing it becomes. David Duval agrees.
