The Masters begins, but without Eldrick

The Masters golf tournament takes place this weekend, minus Tiger Woods.  He recently had back surgery and is unable to play.  Did someone foresee this development? 

Sportswriter Dan Jenkins, who has been covering golf for over half a century and is a member of the World Golf Hall of Fame, had this to say about Tiger back in 2001:

"Tiger makes all those other slugs out there today look like they don't even know how to play. We're talking about a truly remarkable athlete here. Something the game has never seen. Only two things can stop Tiger — injury or a bad marriage." 

In addition to his back, Tiger has been fighting problems with his knees, neck, Achilles and more for the past several years.  He hasn't won a major title in almost 6 years, and has had to miss several because of injuries.  And we all know what happened to his marriage.  Dan Jenkins is positively clairvoyant.  To read his full interview, click here.

Oh and by the way, Mr. Jenkins will be at the Masters this weekend.
