Tar Takes: Should Tiger Woods’ fans be excited or worried after Players Championship?

Tiger Woods finished T-11 this weekend at the Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass. Woods finished the tournament at -11 after shooting a 69 (-3) on Sunday.

While Woods was on the fairway at 14, he was in a prime position to birdie the fourteenth with a wedge shot at an attackable pin. If he birdied, he would have moved to -15 and just three shots behind Webb Simpson. Instead, he spun the wedge off the front of the green and ended up with a bogey. Simpson then birdied and Tiger was six shots back and the comeback was over.

After Tiger’s weekend, should Woods’ fans be excited or worried after his performance at the Players Championship?

Ryan Lipton discusses Tiger Woods below on Tar Takes presented by The JR Report and Relevnt.

After publishing a video, a mysterious man named Dan with No Name commented on our video with some harsh words. We, as a joke, thought it was Patrick Reed, but we might not have been far off. Recent intel makes us believe that it might be Reed’s brother-in-law Dan Karain.
