Tiger's Return

Tiger’s return had a little rust on it (well, judging by his finish in the first round, a lot of rust) but overall it was a positive sign of what it might be in 2017. These next three days will be the true test of where he’s at. Too often he tried to hit driver fades that didn’t fade. But the short game looked all right. We didn’t see him hit any of those painful bladed chips that we saw on his last comeback attempt. And the putter looked good. Granted, he’s in a field of only eighteen, but the other seventeen are all in the top 40 world ranking. A Tiger finish anywhere in the middle would indicate that he could not only play on the tour again but also win again. I hope so. Most people who understand golf also hope so. The number of viewers on the course and on television would go up by about 25% at least. That’s how much the Tiger rooters as well as the Tiger haters want to see him back in action.

I appreciate this Baby Blues by Kirkman and Scott with their comment on the sorry state of writing today. Too much social media with too many bland thoughts and lazy comments. I love our language and hate how poorly too many young people now write. What does that say about how they think? Bland and lazy thoughts? I hope not.

Could I possibly write a blog without at least one swipe at Donald Trump? No. I still wonder when, or even if, we’ll see his tax returns. What is he hiding? And this Non Sequitur by Wiley is a comic comment about what our president-elect may deliver instead of what he promised to deliver.
