    Although it bothers me mightily when the news people focus on Tiger, to the exclusion of other golfers who are actually winning the tournament in question, today's Tiger coverage was entirely warranted. He shot a 64 on Sunday, by golly, and but for a couple unlucky shots he could have been in it, down the wire. He is back.

    Adam Scott choked on his penultimate putt, giving solace to all of us hackers who do the same thing with a "skin" (or whatever) on the line. He came up short on his par putt on 18, costing him a tie for second and probably a quarter mil or so. (For those who don't know, leaving an important putt short is a Cardinal Sin in golf).

    That is what Tiger brings to the game. The energy of that crowd was like a college football game. To think he missed 10 fairways and shot 64!

    Crowds were dull at PGA events while Tiger was unable to play. He brings an energy to the game that has crowds coming back. This is great for the game.

    One has to wonder how whoever has to play with him feels. As if they're totally invisible. And the pressure of being surrounded by so many people. I feel for them.

    I think most of the players recognize that they all benefit when he is in the hunt. More sponsor money means more prize money; simple as that.

    And let's not forget that he could be competing at the top level for another ten years. 50 is the entry point for the Seniors tournaments, but skills don't drop off for another several years after that.

    CBS received the highest ratings for the final round than they've had in years. Good for the game.

    Looking forward to see how Tiger fares in the FedEx Cup. He went from 49 to 20.

    These are the tournaments that will determine the results:
    One can win the $1 million plus without winning the final tournament. It depends on the total number of points won throughout the season.

    A true championship.
