I am not predicting it will happen, but what if Tiger does a Duval, and only gets worse? Would it how much interest would fans and media still have in Tiger?

Well by the looks of things not getting any better!! This is Tiger best finishes this year so far

4th in the Masters 4th in the U.S. Open 19th Memorial Tour 23rd British Open 46th AT&T; Now 78th in the Bridgestone Now I see a trend going on here!!!

OH NO, Not the dreaded "Keep you head down"???? Every duffer in the world thinks this that is the key to golf...pull hook, Keep you head down Push to the left, Keep your head down. High w/o any power keep you head down.

He might as well take a few weeks off, sell his clubs start hanging out with Brian Bozworth and Ryan Leaf to complete the washout triplets.... Naa just kidding, he might not fix it in the next few weeks, but he'll be back!

He's actually working on keeping upright and not

dropping his head so much on the downswing.

His head always dropped, in the back and as well in the downswing - even when he was hitting it well. Thats not the solution to his problems...

For those of you who are intrested - this guy analysed Tigers head dip and compared it to Ben Hogan who had the same action going on:

His life has been turned upside down. I praise him for getting back in the saddle so quickly. The only cure for his problems is winning. A victory will break the pain and a couple of wins and he is back on top. Do I ever think he will win 7 in a row or 3 or more Majors in a year, definately not.

I don't think they're the right ideas judging by those pictures. He's not finishing higher than 20th.

Hey Eric, how come you say that? Is it because he's not working on his hand path?

He has a few things to work on, and his head staying level during the start of his downswing is not in the top three. It may not be in the top ten... of about five things he might need to change or tweak.

It's funny to think what may have been going through his head when that coach laid that club up against his hat. He probably had flinching flashbacks of the night

his wife put the club upside his head. Oh, the mental picture of that!

If the club against the right side of his head is meant to stop him from moving to the right on the backswing, then, that is good. It'll keep him over the ball and improve his contact...(especially if his swing is more upright as Sean Foley mentioned today vs. the laid off crap).

If it's there so he won't "drop his head, then, he's looking entirely in the wrong places and will struggle terribly this weekend.

There was talk on "Live from the PGA Championship" today on GolF Channel that some people think Tiger will never win another major and some even going as far to say he will never win again and will retire after next year. I do think Jack's record is safe, Tiger won't break the majors won record. Just too much mentally to overcome to get back to that level IMO. But to say he won't win again is silly.

I think that this is an extrememly short sided comment those people made on the Golf Channel.... I've said this before and I will say it again - it amazes me how short people's memories are...Yes, tiger is in a major slump but to say he will never win a tournament again..........really? Have we all so quickly forgotten what he has done and is capable of???

if theres anything to be said about Tiger, it's that he's extremely stubborn, resistant, and somethign should be said about his work ethic. I don't think for a second that Tiger will retire. Regardless of his poor performance this past season, he'll kick back. Thats a given in my opinion. What Tiger needs to do is get a confident swing back that he can trust. That involves a coach which I think Foley will able to achieve. Maybe not this season, but next year, he'll come back around.

I think there will always be an interest in Tiger no matter how bad he gets simply because everyone loves a great comeback story. Look at John Daly: people still talk about him every time he is even remotely in the hunt for a win.
Personally, I think Tiger is done. He just doesnt have the same fire in his eyes that he used to.
