Will Tiger Woods pull a New England Patriots' act in 2008?
While my esteemed colleague (from what I’m told) Brandon Tucker, made a gleeful, awe-inspired, frivolous and pandering call that Tiger Woods will win the Grand Slam in 2008, I laughed directly into the face of his little bio photo at the top of his blog, such was my disdain. That’s not pandering hyperbole. Here’s pandering hyperbole:
Tiger Woods will go undefeated in 2008. Eat that, BTuck. I’m all up in your grill now.
And, ok, at first glance, this prediction appears, well, stupid. He can’t win them all. But maybe, just maybe, Tiger Woods can give the golf world its own version of the New England Patriots - an undefeated golfer.
Think about it. Each year, Tiger’s schedule gets a little smaller and a little more elite. Outside of the majors, he’s been slowly but surely putting together a schedule where he’ll know he has a definite shot to win. He’s already won six in a row. Why not 16?
Of course, other golfers do actually exist. In a tongue-in-cheek post last week I pointed at Phil Mickelson as a big threat in 2008. But, quite honestly, Phil Mickelson will always be a threat. As will many others.
But Tiger has yet to really hit his prime. Once it all comes together for him, imagine him taking apart tournaments. Tournaments he specifically chose to play in. Whether 2008, 2009, 2010 or whenever, don’t we all believe Tiger still has his best years in him?
So yeah, I can see that some will consider this a stupid prediction by some. But it could happen. And, at very least, it makes Tucker’s look like an amateur hyperbolicker (or whatever that would be called).

And as a California guy, I know you have to be down with Rome.
I'm making it my mission to make sure you get credit from this as more and more people jump on the idea throughout the year. Or at least something, I'll consider doing between munching cheese doodles.
Thanks for your quest, Chris. Even if it only entails just occasionally thinking about it from time to time.
But yeah, if Tiger heads to Augusta undefeated, I expect massive national recognition.
He's playing so well that when he blitzed the field by eight shots at the Buick Invitational in San Diego in his 2008 debut, talk of an undefeated started percolating."
Percolating? Where did it start percolating? No where but William K. Wolfrum's blog.
Do people steal your political ideas this shamelessly, K.? I swear, the injustice.
