Johnny Miller has compared Tiger Woods’ fall from the #1 player in the world to Mike Tyson’s fall from the #1 boxer in the world. Miller is quoted as saying, “It’s a little bit like a Mike Tyson story to be honest with you.”

I get the comparison from an athletic standpoint, but that’s where it ends, and that’s all Johnny Miller was comparing. Two athletes who were “invincible” in their respective sports, fell from that invincible status.

But what if the comparisons didn’t stop there? Can you imagine Phil Mickelson standing over a putt on the 18th green to win The Masters, when all of the sudden Tiger jumps on his back and bites a chunk of his ear off as Jim Nantz screams Oh My Goodness!!

A tradition unlike any other.  The Masters on CBS.
