OK, so I stand corrected. Tiger Woods is no longer married, and he didn’t win the two majors that I’d predicted he would, in a previous post.
The suddenness and finality of the divorce was surprising to many, it seems. But in retrospect, this (divorce) may have been the most logical thing to do: Elin can now separate herself – as best as she can – from the whole messy business, but having the children will still mean that Tiger will be in the picture. And Tiger… well, there’s still a lot of golf left in him. It will be interesting to see what 2011 brings.
As for Mike Weir, it looks like ligament damage in his right elbow means an early wrap-up to a (somewhat) disappointing season. Interesting article here by the Montreal Gazette’s Randy Phillips: http://bit.ly/9Da4mj
