In May, Tiger Woods was one of hottest Internet search topics ahead of the U.S. Open tournament in Pebble Beach, California, which began on Thursday, Jun. 17. Unfortunately, the articles that turned up didn't speak kindly of him.
"Now, he can't hit a fairway any better than I can," Roy Johnson, editor-in-chief of Men's Fitness, lamented in an article that appeared in ESPN.com, as Tiger went through some practice rounds at Pebble Beach. Tiger, 34, was playing as poorly as at any point in his career, according to reports.
In April, Tiger was usurped by 39-year old rival Phil Mickelson at the Masters tournament in Augusta, Georgia, who had been overshadowed by the former for much of their careers.
