Sure Jordan Spieth is the new golf god, doing things even the mighty Tiger Woods hadn’t done at such a tender age. Spieth arrived at St. Andrews for the British Open this week later than most players, needing to collect the trophy at the John Deere Classic first — a tournament he may well win ten times in a row. But despite the possibility of a true calendar Grand Slam in the offing for young Spieth, there’s one question on most golf people’s lips this week. It’s the same question that’s been on golf fans’ lips for nearly two decades — though only in the last seven years or so was there any diversity to the answer. The question is: How’s Tiger hittin’ it?
Type “British Open” into Google today, one of the top results will read something like this: “Can Tiger Woods Win The British Open?” Not bad coverage for a golfer currently ranked No. 241 in the world. Here are some tweets — about Tiger’s practice.
