It’s a weird feeling not having him here, isn’t it?” Mickelson said. “He’s been such a mainstay in professional golf and the majors. It’s awkward to not have him here. I hope he gets back soon. I mean, I hope he’s back for the other majors, and as much as I want to win and I know how great he is and tough to beat it … it also makes it special when he’s in the field and you’re able to win.
Weird is right. Masters week is usually the best week of the year for golf fans. It’s definitely different this year though. For the first time since 1997, when Tiger won by 12 strokes, where I’m not over-excited to watch. Woods has something special at Augusta National. Even if he doesn’t win, he plays a stretch of holes that convinces you he’s going to pull off a miracle. Nobody else can create that kind of excitement.
Heal fast Tiger!
