Does this mean we only hear about Tiger 12 hours in a day instead of 24?

If Tiger isn’t in contention ain’t nobody giving a schit or going to watch. I predict low ratings.

LOL. Yep.

I’m hoping Jordan Spieth can have a good tourney and not a blow up.

I never heard of the leader JB Holmes. Shows ya how much I keep up with golf any more. 😬

Tiger is completely over hyped, good is is but far from the best.

This is what a golf course is supposed to look like, links golf IS golf....everything else is glorified putt-putt. The only exception is Augusta during the Masters.

Need some weather to blow in and make it a tournament!

Many favorites missed the cut. Phil Mickelson, Zach Johnson, Tom Lehman, several more. I'm glad to see Andrew Putnam on the leader board because I was his standard bearer at a Web.com tournament a few years ago and have a signed ball from him.

People that truly enjoy the game of golf will watch. They don't need Tiger to stay interested.

LOL...Pat, some of us watch in spite of Tiger-hype. There are some amazing new young pros. Advancements in electronic swing analysis has made for a whole new type of golfer. Arnold Palmer would have "tilted" the computers. grin

WOW!

Lowry is a machine today. This links course demands distance and control, and he's been almost perfect, along with good putting.

No interest? Ha! The Open is a completely sold out event - no gate tickets available at all. Something like 240,000 people will attend. Many times that number watching on TV.

That's me. Unfortunately, the Open is being broadcast on NBC and my provider (DirectTVNow) does not provide NBC as an option. As an aside, I would never watch NBC anyway unless it was for a sporting even like the Open, so no big deal.

We tend to forget there’s more spectators than just the USA. Soccer and F1 come to mind.

No real golfer I know, single digit to low double digit handicap swoons over Tiger Woods. They are not going to give up the sport should Tiger quit tomorrow.

I'll watch but to be honest I don't like the links courses.

Fugly and unfun to watch.

Tiger, Dale Earnhardt, Steph Curry, Tom Brady, Serena Williams.....take your pick. Any of the top athletes are the “one to watch”. Mainly to see them achieve greatness or fall to pieces, most cases both.

I won’t be watching, just like I didn’t watch the last few hundred golf matches.

The best thing about Tiger being out is that they don't have some loud mouth SOB standing near the tee of a five hundred yard hole shouting "get in the hole" as soon as he makes contact

Past his prime obviously. Beginning to wonder how much they paid the leaders at the Masters to put their ball in the drink?
