The Golf Thread: It's A Sport. Yes, Really.

Tiger Woods may be better at this whole golf thing than anyone is at anything else.

I hope his knee holds up tomorrow for one more great round.

I couldn't agree more. I caught the highlights and damn some of his shots were amazing. I really hope he's able to win.

I think golf is the only sport where the easy majority consistently roots for the favorite (Tiger), not the underdog (everyone else).

Not looking good so far today though for him or his knee...

I think that's true Bianca. Everyone wants Tiger to win. I hope he's able to pull it off...even with it not looking so good.

YW.

Tiger's up two, with nine to play. Looks like he may pull this out (which is both surprising and not ).

Rocco's hanging tough though. What a weekend for him.

That was a great 5 days of golf.

And a playoff wasn't enough. They still had to go to sudden death. But it's not surprising because Tiger Woods defines clutch. He owned the 18th hole.

I felt a bit bad for Rocco, cause he is such a great guy, but I was so thrilled that Tiger won.

And little Sam Alexis was so cute with her daddy. I loved the whole full circle part of Tiger's speech.

And it's so true; everyone roots for Tiger. He is the only reason I got into golf.

Rocco won himself a lot of fans, I think.

Really bad news for Tiger though:

Quote:
Tiger Woods has decided to have surgery on his left knee, which will end his 2008 season.

Woods said on his Web site that Woods will have surgery on his anterior cruciate ligament. He also wrote that he needs time to rehabilitate a double stress fracture of his left tibia, which he said was discovered just before the Memorial Tournament in late May.

Woods skipped that event, but played 91 holes in winning the U.S. Open in a playoff over Rocco Mediate.

Woods said no date has been determed for the surgery.

"I know much was made of my knee throughout the last week, and it was important to me that I disclose my condition publicly at an appropriate time. I wanted to be very respectful of the USGA and their incredibly hard work, and make sure the focus was on the U.S. Open," said Woods on his Web site. "Now, it is clear that the right thing to do is to listen to my doctors, follow through with this surgery, and focus my attention on rehabilitating my knee."

Woods said on his Web site that he originally ruptured the ACL in 2007 while running at his home in Orlando after the British Open. He said he decided not to have surgery at that point, and he went on to win five of the next six events he entered (through his Target World Challenge in December).


"While I am obviously disappointed to have to miss the remainder of the season, I have to do the right thing for my long-term health and look forward to returning to competitive golf when my doctors agree that my knee is sufficiently healthy," Woods wrote on his Web site. "My doctors assure me with the proper rehabilitation and training, the knee will be strong and there will be no long-term effects."

Woods had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee on April 15, two days after he finished second in The Masters in April.

Woods had committed to playing in the Buick Invitational next week. He hosts the AT&T National the week after at Congressional Country Club in Washington, D.C. The report said he would fulfill his obligations to sponsors at those events.

He was also scheduled to play in the British Open in July and defend his PGA Championship title in August.

The Ryder Cup is set for September at Valhalla, just outside of Louisville, Ky.

I am crushed. The rest of the year without Tiger is going to suck majorly.

But I am glad he is going to listen to his doctors, get himself fixed and be able to come back 100%.

But man, this blows.

And you're right; Rocco has a whole new following, which is great, cause the guy is a class act.

Aww.

He has to take care of himself, though.

That really sucks for Tiger. He's gonna miss the rest of the season.
