Where Have You Gone Tiger Woods?

Nate Beeler/Washington Examiner
Holy smokes! The Open Championship or as it is better known, the British Open, starts in just a few hours and I didn't even know about it.

What in the world has happened to my desire to follow golf?

I'm sure I'm not the only one with this dilemma as we were so used to former-World No. 1 Tiger Woods keeping us interested and tuned in. And I'm talking about the pre-November 2009 Tiger Woods not the post-scandal Tiger that's yet to win a tournament. I'll admit I've never been the die-hardest of golf fans but during the Tiger-era, I did keep track of the game, at least, 75% more than what I do now.

For me, golf hasn't been the same since Tiger went from being "King" to the now-estranged former champion.

Oh well, maybe the new media darling and U.S. Open champion Rory McIlroy will get my golf juices flowing again. If he's on top of the leader-board come Sunday then we're in business.

GOOD LUCK at The Open Championship, kid!

A QUICK NOTE: If you are a trivia buff, check out the site Sports History 365 for all the brain-racking sports trivia you can handle. The questions are great and tough. I think I've only gotten them all correct once since I've been following it. Check it out!
