    And the photographer’s name, of course, had to be Pain. Life has a sense of humor.

    So does that dude on the right, with the turban and cigar. He cracks me up. So does the guy in the yellow shirt looking over his shoulder.

    The whole picture is awesome.

    The Turban guy is sikh looking, isn’t he?

    There’s a whole bunch of ‘turban guy’ photoshops showing up around da interwebs.

    There’s a guy in one of the other images with a black big curly hair cap. Geez, I know Europeans are our betters but decorum anyone? 🙂

    The “Rory McIlroy” wigs are very popular right now 🙂

    (or the “Mod Squad” is on in re-runs again)

    Had to Google that guy, Mr B. I know a handful of the big names in golf and that’s about it. If my few lame attempts at playing at golf taught me anything, though, I think I can slice one into any camerman … assuming one would be stupid enough to get close to me. 🙂

    Rob, I always tell people when I play that the safest place for them is on the green near the flag…because that’s the last place my shot has any chance of going 🙂

    Another highlight – the guy in the blue windbreaker holding up his hands for quiet during the shot… unfortunately he looks like he’s the first person to realize where the shot is going, and is raising his hands like “AWESOME shot, dude!”

    Sad to say,but I think Tiger was taking steroids or some other drug the last few years.
    His drop-off in performance
    means he has stopped,because he no longer feels invincible
    and is worried about getting caught.He was great.But,so was Barry Bonds.

  9. Mr. Bingley says:

    I’m not so sure, Greg. What made Tiger unbeatable for all those years was not his power: it was his short game. His chipping and especially his putting were just frankly the greatest ever. I don’t think steroids help with those things that depend so much on touch and feel as opposed to raw power. Now I freely admit I am in a Twelve Step Tiger Fanboy Recovery program, but I think his drop-off in performance is more related to issues between his ears.

    In the end, the only one who breaks par is Old Man Time.
