It is no secret that Tiger Woods has been struggling with his game.
In case you have not heard, Tiger has not won a tournament in over a year. In fact in four starts in 2011, Tiger has only notched one top-10 finish.
That is not the Tiger the world is accustomed too.
The Tiger the world is accustomed to would have notched a victory at the Farmers Insurance Open played at Torrey Pines, a course he has virtually owned during his career. Instead, Tiger finished in a tie for 44th this year.
Now Tiger heads to Augusta.
In the past, Tiger was always the favorite to win at the hallowed track. But this is 2011. This is not the same Tiger that walked the fairways back in 2005.
As the saying goes, the Masters does not begin until the back nine on Sunday afternoon. Too bad Tiger will be watching from his house.
