Default Tiger BAILED from the PGA early

Cannot believe it. Read he did not stick around for the Monday finish. That to me is unthinkable.

Can you imagine what would have happened if 2 under ended up being the number for a playoff? Would never ever ever ever live it down. Flabbergasted by it all. Lost a ton of respect for him here. Dont want to hear that it was unlikely to occur. Sure it was. But my God to possibly throw away a Major to get a few more hours sleep?

Is this true??

Lose a ton of respect for him since he was making such a big deal about the lunches being good at Baltusrol so he wouldn't mind hanging around there. All the reports were that he had to hang out at Baltusrol and stay over---I was wondering because they showed the locker room and he wasn't in it as some of the guys were watching the event.

He probably was safe to figure that he was a shot out but with your own jet what is the big deal about hanging around for a while. Would have been interested to see what the PGA would have done if -2 was in a playoff.

Word never got out that he flew home until today. I left for Baltusrol early Monday morning and Tiger was 2-3 on WSEX interactives. His only realistic shot was a playoff. I brought a folding stool to stand on for Monday's action. Standing on the stool made me about 8' tall. I had a great view of the 18th green waiting for Phil to get to his ball, the stool snaps, no way to fix it. Talk about bad timing...could hardly see the final chip and putt.

Really can't believe Woods did this especially in a major but I heard it in an interview yesterday. It was a longshot but he would never have been able to live it down had they all come back to -2.

Shifty. At one point Tiger was 3-5 on the interactives. Poor buyers never had a chance.

I think they would have held the playoff until the afternoon to get him back.

No way would the PGA start a playoff that involved the main man of the PGA Tour. They would have had him fly back and say it was because of tv.

No way they'd hold up the playoff to wait for Tiger. You miss your tee time, you are DQ'd. Tiger backers were betting on a scratched horse with no refunds.

Agree with the Sheik. Not even the PGA would do that.

There would be a boycott by the other players
