"Sometimes the game of golf is just too difficult to endure with a golf club in your hands." - Bobby Jones

I'm not sure if being a prolific thrower and breaker of clubs makes me more or less qualified to speak to Tiger's behaviour. Rage on the golf course is almost exclusively self-directed and mentally caused. Very few "hot tempered" golfers are losing the rag because they got a bad break; it's almost always some kind of expression of self-loathing, brought on by changing one's mind midway through a swing and the body failing to get the message in time.

To cut through all that - Tiger's in a bad place again, mentally. He seems to have lost (or certainly at the Masters he lost) the ability to reset and start again. The rage is feeding itself. If I didn't know better, I'd say he needed to get laid.

Just a reminder...there's a Stanley Cup Pickem thread over in the Locker Room, if you haven't submitted picks yet. Round 1 starts tonight, but you still have time to get them in...

Lamar Odom was habitually late to team meetings, practices and shootarounds.

He lived in the W Dallas building, which is 300 feet from the arena.

Who would want him on their team now?
