Here is the thing. If you are not aware that the US Open is currently taking place at the Pinehurst Resort and Country Club in North Carolina, I will forgive you. You see, since Tiger Woods decided to hit a tree with his SUV, dropping 18 women from the branches in the process, golf has never been the same.
According to the bleacher report, the world of golf misses Woods as much as you would miss you lungs if you woke up without them.
Those with little love for Woods claim that no individual is bigger than the game; and whilst this may be true for many sports, in golf, Woods has been the game for nearly 20 years now.
This will be the second straight Major Woods will be missing, this after he skipped the Masters with a nagging back problem. As a result, the TV ratings for the Masters dropped by 24 per cent, the lowest since 2004 according to golf.com.
