I'm glad to hear that it's "okay to root for Tiger Woods again" because, if nothing else, it signals a return to stories about Tiger being about golf and not about his marriage, his kids, his infidelity, his temper tantrums on the course, and a whole bunch of other stuff that I don't really care about.
We recently asked people in the forum to predict Tiger's 2011 season, and as I write this 25% of people think Tiger will continue his major-less streak in 2011. 43% think he'll win a lone major, and 23% think he'll win two or more. In regular PGA Tour events, only 9% think he'll go winless, while 40% think he'll win one to three and another 25% think he'll win four or more.
My votes? I picked two majors and 4-6 regular PGA Tour wins, and here's why. In 2011, Tiger Woods will have the emotional wreckage of his broken infidelity and subsequent divorce behind him, he'll have incorporated enough of new instructor Sean Foley's methods to get his swing back, and he'll be eager to prove that he can still be dominant. Let's look at each of these.
