Good the Tiger circus can go away and let the real golf fans enjoy the golf again.

Tiger was obviously tournament-rusty

He chose not to play a tournament between the Masters last month and the PGA Championship now

He has to find the right balance between rust and rest for his 43-yr-old reconstructed back

Lol, used to joke of shooting in the 70s on Black....................... on 9 holes

Koepka is doing what Tiger used to do to the field way back when at the turn of the century

And in the last 9 Majors he played, Koepka finished near the top in all but one, while winning 3:

T-4 @ 2016 PGA

T-11 @ 2017 Masters

Won @ 2017 US Open

T-6 @ 2017 British

T-13 @ 2017 PGA

Won @ 2018 US Open

T-39 @ 2018 British

Won @ 2018 PGA

T-2 @ 2019 Masters

And now, he may become the first one ever to defend both the US Open and PGA Championship concurrently

Uh... every golfer misses the cut sometimes. Nicklaus missed the cut almost 15% of the time. Just because Tiger missed this cut doesn't mean he isn't playing competitive golf. Just wasn't his week.

I was very happy Tiger won the Masters. Tiger is just good for the game and has made an amends for all!

However, I have played the Black course in 2007. The warning sign on #1 is very accurate.

If you do not carry 5 HCP or better. I think you will have a very long day on the Black course..

Not to make excuses for Tiger but Golf Digest has Beth Page Black course rated the sixth hardest course to play in the world. And anyone can play at the state park links. But you are warned. Very challenging!

In 2007 I shot 82 from the pro-tees. And at the time I was 3 HCP. Today's is much different story living and working in Japan with the cost of play and practice. And I only practice off grass not the mats at the stack ranges here. So the HCP has slipped back a bit with age as well. Can not hit blades like used to and now using hybrids. By examining my divot I can tell what I need to do, to adjust and dial back in. No divots on mats. But that is a comment for another day. I think Tiger did pretty well. Black course is long mean and lean. Trees and sand everywhere. So Brooks K. being 12 under on the second day is just a phenom thing. Love to see a D.J-&- Brooksy showdown. No one is going catch Brooks. He has another PGA Championship in the bag I feel.

Here is a great video hole by hole and what you would be facing should you happen to be in the state of New York. Want to give Black a go? Bring plenty of balls and Monster energy drinks. LOL.
