Tiger's new math is a tad too average

Tiger Woods just wanted to break par. The TNT yakkers at the PGA Championship spent most of Thursday afternoon praising him for playing smart and accepting the occasional bogey. The media generally gave him high marks for his 1-under 71.

The consensus, including from the man himself: Tiger's not anywhere near back to being The Greatest Ever, but at least he isn't that impostor who had been showing up and playing as if he were John Daly on a bender.

That's all well and good, but if Tiger isn't Tiger, why should we all be so obsessed with Tiger?

Because he's Tiger, that's why!

But enough of this 1-under stuff, you know? Either go wild, get on a record pace and make the rest of the field cower in your presence ... or get wild, lose every other shot in the deep hay, throw a few clubs (preferably at Jim Gray), and make last week's performance seem like the good ol' days.

I don't want to have to get used to Tiger Woods just showing up and playing like any of about 100 other golfers.
