2010 US Open Golf: Stick a Fork in Tiger Woods, He's Done!

Yesterday was set up perfect for Tiger Woods

Phil Mickelson, one of his main competitors, had a terrible round. Commentators and fans were on his side. He was playing at one of his favorite courses. 

The result? He was shaky all day, closed with a six on the 18th hole, and finished with a three over 74.

One stroke better than Lefty. The he spent his interview time after the round complaining about the greens and how the morning starters had better conditions.

When it was mentioned to the one time wunderkind that most of the top scores were actually turned in by golfers from the afternoon session like himself, Tiger did not react well.  He pretty much ended the interview at that point.

And so it goes for Tiger.

More and more, he's looking like just another golfer. Superman's cape is gone. 

Right now, he is on the course and even for the day, he still looks shaky.

I will tell you right now that Tiger will not win the US Open this weekend, no matter how many cameras follow him around the course.

That will make him 0-2 in majors this year. A year some people thought Tiger had a chance to sweep them all. 

Of even more concern for Tiger fans, he's getting worse, not better.

It's time to wonder if he will ever be the same.
