After he bogeyed #3 (his 12th hole of the day) he totally looked like someone who couldn't wait to get out of town.
Yeah, he was one under on the day (-2 for the tourney) through his first 8 holes, then he went double, double, bogey, bogey, bogey, bogey, bogey, birdie, par, par to finish out. I can't imagine that there is a professional golfer who ever walked the face of the earth that would have positive body language and demeanor when playing that way. Just because he doesn't look like he's having a good time does not that really mean that he isn't trying.
Also, we get to watch Tiger now, and will continue to watch him play for another 10-15 years, but Jack hasn't played competitively for several. Those of us who didn't watch every single round of every single tournament that Jack played (which, for the record, is EVERYBODY ON THE PLANET since they only used to show the back nine on Saturday and Sunday when golf was on TV) can't possibly know if he ever had "bad body language or demeanor." (I suspect that he did)
