Woods is playing with pain today. [He would eventually withdraw mid-round.] Grimacing and walking in a stilted manner. This shows I was right with my analysis in Section B of this article. While other golf “experts” were yapping about the yips, ole Lanny H told you what it was: age and injury.
Here’s an excerpt from my “Sorry, Folks, Tiger Woods Is Not Peter Pan”:

Did anyone else notice the Golf Channel live shot of Woods’s empty parking space? For Golf Channel, that’s become a tradition like no other.
