Default Tiger Woods

He deserves his own thread.

With the world watching in the final of the Match play at Tuscon Arizona, he yet again brought his A game when it mattered the most. His stats are just amazing. This was his 63rd PGA tour victory. With this one he just crossed Arnold Parmer "the King". Next in line is Ben Hogan with 64. Then Jack "The golden bear" at 73 and legendary Sam Snead at 82. All will fall. one after another.

Tiger is in a 5 tournament winning steak. Geez!! It is hard enough to win one. stringing streaks are unheard of. I ask Tiger Woods fans (if any here) to post anything thing about him and his records, his already legacy etc. obviously his 13 majors and chase to 18 of Jacks are on. Hope to see his best in coming years.

People are talking about a Perfect Season, I think he'll have his best year as pro probably win 13-14 events but a perfect season? I wouldn't put it past him tho ... If he wins the masters than the Calender Grand slam is almost a Lock.

A perfect season in the game of golf in general, and modern professional golf in particular is a virtual impossibility. But if anyone can do the impossible, it must be Tiger. I've come to believe he's not really human. Looking forward to him trying ...

lol, sohel bhai, Stuart Cink just echoed your comments. wanted to rip Tiger open just to see if he indeed had nuts and bolts inside. That man's mental strength is unbelievable and till date uncomparable. He is a machine in the golf course. As days go by the competition is suppose to be closer. Yet we see Tiger distancing himself further. How?

When MJ was in prime, his opponents also thought which planet he came from. Sally (one of the original members of bad boys Detroit pistons) once said Michael went up on the air for a layup from the side, he came in to take a charge, in mid-air he moved side ways and didn't touch Sally. No human can change direction in air (once they leave the ground. yet Michael did). I have a video, where he jumped to score and his opponents (plural) jumped to block,Then he jumped another notch in the mid air and the others fell he scored with ease. How can that be possible? But I have it in tape.

These athletes are almost super human. But every one of them had put in the practice to reach that level.

As for Tigers perfect season in this day and age, not possible. Even for Tiger 2.0. Those who played golf know that. You don't play against players (except matchplay). You play the course. Time to time one can not overcome what the course throws at the person. That is normal and universal.

Thanks for the link Mijan. Definitely had a good laugh.

Looks like the brother will be a pretty good writer of semi-incomprehensible primary school textbooks. Still, kudos to him for trying. BTW, the caddies are some of the best Bangladeshi golfers not surprisingly. Think ball boys and their tennis. We, the ruling class are good for nothing other than sulking and getting fat !

BTW: he was 7 down entering Saturday

TW wins yet again. What else is new? He might be regaining his 2000 form again.

In yahoo sports there is a question asked. Which one is the most toughest record to break. I added a third to it.

1. Grand slam (no one has achieved it, many took two, Tiger managed 3 in a year)

2. Byron Nelson's 11 win in a row (as good as Tiger has been last six months he is not even half way through)

3. Jack's 18 major (Tiger with 13 has only a realistic chance to surpass him. However, one injury can finish all hope. The way he is buffing up, a back injury is not that far)

I was going to make my 10,000 post on this thread. But .....

Tiger is gunning for 6th straight PGA win this week. I wish Duval would give him some fits.

In Pictures: Tiger's Road To A Billion

Woods is on track to pass $1 billion in career earnings by 2010. Becoming a billionaire--that is, having a net worth above $1 billion--will take slightly longer, since a sizable chunk of Woods' prize and endorsement money is eaten up by taxes and management fees--we estimated 45%. We also credited Woods with annualized investment returns of 8%.
From 1996 (the year Woods turned pro) to the present, we based his earnings on estimates from Forbes' Celebrity 100 list. In 2007, we estimate Woods earned $115 million, $65 million more than runner-up David Beckham.
Based on those criteria, we project Tiger Woods should join our list of the world's billionaires in 2011.

Tiger should respect his roots and donate half his money to Thailand and Africa.

Then he needs to spend the rest to get a skin transplant like Michael Jackson, a nosejob, a pair of blue contacts, and bleach his hair blond and become totally white. Because that's what he is inside. He looks horribly out of place on a golf course. He should be working as the head bouncer of the circuit, not a player. Different people have different occupations.

I will take back all my harsh words on Tiger if he donates at least 5 million dollars to people in Bangladesh.

Why Bangladesh? Do you pick yourself in the receiving end to distribute that donation?

Not really. But there must be a few competent people here to handle that large an amount, I think.

Tiger Woods Foundation Bangladesh? It would make Tiger look like Mother Teresa. Plus good exposure for Bangladesh. He can come here and have parties with the Chakmas and Garos if he likes.

Well, in the context of BD, the foundation takes on a new meaning, since our Tigers are endangered species ( not those playing kiriket, though some may disagree ) and Woods keep vanishing due to illegal logging by the encroaching ever increasing excess populace. It will be a perfect foundation for nature conservancy. Now, whats more important? Tree's or People? anyone want to debate? not as easy an answer as one might assume..

Just wondering what would you do with 23 taka? Your share of the 5 million dollar.

Beamer,
My answer is Tree. If we had an essay (rochona) competition that would have been fatastic. I memorised quiet a few essay during SSC. Had a common. Bangladesh'er jonoshonkha. Lekha ar shesh hotey chai na.

I wasn't as lucky. My rochona was about a " nodir atto kahini " which I memorized before.

Yes. A debate on that topic would be very interesting..
