I think I much prefer watching McIlroy and Rickie Fowler than Tiger any day.

A couple of 5'9" guys almost setting records for under par. Amazing.

Tiger's legacy. Throw your club down fast on poor swings.

Yeah, it's amazing that you can be 15 under par and still come in second.

I watch because I knew either an Rory win or collapse would be worth watching.

I didn't like Tiger's personality, but he is exactly the kind of person you need in sports if you think about it.  A polarizing figure that can divide the fans (love him or hate him)... but that only works when he wins.

 

People love to hate Duke basketball... but if Duke went on a slide for a few seasons it would get old...

 

You need a good Tiger to be loved and hated... when he wins the haters hate... and when he loses the haters rejoice.  Fans kind of win either way, and get to see good golf.

 

That said... they also need likable winners too.  Not just underdogs that pull out the amazing but someone like Rory who seems likable and also seems to be talented.

 

Both kinds of winners are good for golf.
