It has been
since Tiger Woods last won a major. Already the whispers have started:
"Has he clinched his crown as the greatest golfer ever?"
"Is he in a slump?"
"Has the sport passed him by for good?"
as he has been, you can't discount the presence of
golf's young guns.
doubts about his character.
At times like this I remember what a great country this is.

But since the two started being seen together a few months ago, whispers have grown around the golf world that Lahti Johnston is simply dating Woods in hopes she can catch the eye of Martin Kaymer, the No. 1 ranked golfer in the world.
"People want to be with the best," said former British Open champion Stewart Cink. "We saw all the tail Tiger got when he was No. 1. And now it's Martin's turn up top. You really can't get any hotter than Martin Kaymer right now. I mean, that guy is an international superstar! If I was Tiger, I would be very skeptical of this girl's intentions."
"It's not just the fact that Martin is ranked No. 1 while Tiger is only No. 3," said Steve Stricker. "Martin also has impeccably pleated pants and I'd guess at least 300 different colors of polo shirts. Throw in that German accent and an incredibly awkward manner around girls that can be interpreted as being shy, and he's got golf groupies all over him. They want in on that total package."
Outside of insulting women, farting is the peak of golf humor.
That will help a golfer behind him hold the green.
He has a black hat. Does that count?
Taking a look at the biggest sports punchlines of 2010
Tiger's humiliating downfall began at the end of 2009. But it was in 2010 that he truly hit rock bottom with sex rehab, the press conference, the divorce and the being mediocre at golf.
And while all that was bad, the true bottom for Tiger Woods came on April 10, 2010, when, according to Internet research firms, 100-percent of e-mails sent that day were Tiger Woods joke forwards. Yes, the man who just months before was seen as the perfect athlete on and off the course was the subject of an e-mail forward from your Aunt Cindy that included 17 golf/sex euphemisms.
But that e-mail forward from you Aunt Cindy also began Tiger Woods' comeback. Every possible joke about him had been made. Tiger Woods jokes quickly became groan-inducing like a Perkins waitress with a big rack. (See?)
Farewell, 2010. And farewell to Tiger Woods-as-punchline. In 2011 we want to see you wiggle your shaft, grab your balls and put it in the hole again and again on the way to a 69. And we won't even laugh. We promise.
