Well, the world has been waiting for the "next" Tiger to come out of the shadows ! Maybe this young lad will be the heir apparent ! Time will tell.

If you remember, people were always waiting for the "next Nicklaus," too, except that he never came (unless you think Woods is it). Scott Verplank was supposed to be the one and, I believe, so was Hal Sutton, and there were many others. It was all nonsense.

I suspect it will be the same with Woods. Players such as him are so rare that probability dictates that they only come around once every couple of generations or so. Thus, I tend to doubt there will be another Woods. What will probably happen is that, assuming the world in its present form exists in 25 years, an aging and mostly-retired Woods will be watching some other young prodigy make his name, a man who will be so good that people will be wondering if he can break Woods' records. But he wouldn't be called "the next Tiger Woods" any more than Woods is called "the next Nicklaus." Like Woods and Nicklaus, he would be so great that his name would stand all by itself and he would be viewed as a singular figure.

Camilo Villegas may be the only one capable of Challenging Tiger. He can Putt very well under Pressure, unlike Garcia. He doesn't do foolish things Like Pkil. Doesn't seem to be flash in pan.( so many ) Not distracted by young hot girls. Finds a way to stay in the hunt when he is not at his best. Has considerable length & Charisma, which keeps him from being at odds with any fans. Doesn't drink or think like Daly.
Finally he's Latin & everybody knows Latins are the best athletes in the World Pound for Pound

Art,

You must be watching a different Camilo Villegas than the rest of us. He is an immense talent, yes -- he's the Chi Chi Rodriguez of our time. However, his putting, like Rodriguez', is a bit shaky to say the least. He tends to miss short putts, especially in the clutch.

He certainly can be one of the very best players in the world, but I don't see him challenging Woods in the way in which you speak.

The Dubai government allows horrific exploitation and impoverishment of foreign workers. The men who have built Dubai are throw-away ghosts. They fall from the towers regularly. They sleep 15 men to a one-room shack. They live in the secret slum neighborhood far away from the city center. Wealthy visitors to Dubai won?t be reminded of what it is they?re encouraging. Workers are so hungry and desperate that they'll work for practically nothing and business takes advantage. Dubai is a stain on the soul of humankind. Shame on Tiger Woods. What an awful example he sets for the millions who admire him.
