Hendren's Hyperbole! Episode 35 -- Tiger wants some Frys with that
Welcome back to Hendren’s Hyperbole! I hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend. The Hendren household had a great extended weekend but the cherry on top was the weather breaking. I love a cool morning in the 50s and a high of 75.
In case you haven’t heard, Tiger is playing in the Frys.com Open in San Martin, Calif., Oct. 6-9. Oh how the mighty fall. I can’t believe Tiger is playing again this year in a tournament that isn’t a charity event.
What is going to happen if he misses the cut at the Frys.com Open or finishes in a tie for 25th place? I can’t imagine that will be very good for his brand. Maybe Tiger has given up on building his brand, at least until he can make a cut.
If I were Tiger I would just concentrate on golf right now. I would play in every tournament I could and leave my pride at home. I would respect him more if he just sucked it up and got his stuff together on the course. If he wants to catch Jack he better hurry up because he is not getting any younger.
What do you think about Tiger playing in the Frys.com Open? Does anyone even care at this point?
