Tiger Woods Update: Use of the phrase "Tiger Lurking" now banned
While I hope everyone’s having a Happy Easter (or, for the non-Christians a “Happy Sunday"), I just thought I’d pop in with a quick Tiger Woods update.
And no, this doesn’t have much to do with what Tiger’s up to at the WGC-CA Championship at Doral, aside from the fact that he’s three shots off the lead, giving headline writers around the globe the opportunity to use the phrase “Tiger Lurking.”
Now, as a golf blogger here at WorldGolf.com, I’m not exactly sure what my real powers are, so I’m not sure if this actually becomes law, but it might. No one’s explained to me how much power I have over the golf world (I’d assume it would be a lot). That said, however, I hereby make a declaration that I expect to be followed:
No one is ever allowed to write the phrase “Tiger Lurking” unless an actual tiger (see below) is involved. Seriously, it’s out of control and has been that way since Day One. I just can’t take another 20 years of “Tiger Lurking” in golf headlines.
Anyone who defies this ban will have to answer to me, and punishment will be swift and severe. I would imagine.
Easter (or, Sunday) is a time of new beginnings. Let’s use this one to start afresh and find some new verbs when writing about Tiger Woods near the lead in a golf tournament.
This is a lurking tiger.

people were getting attacked by wild tigers, i.e., tigers were literally lurking. Some smart villager noted that tigers only attack people from behind, so he made and sold masks for people to wear on the backs of their heads.
As I recall, it was an effective defense against attack.
I think someone should sell similar masks to the guys on Tour. Maybe Tiger would never catch them...
Oh, so much for your stupid Tiger Woods prediction.
I'm sorry that your prediction re TW was not realised (I did enjoy the blog) but only because I was so looking forward to passing fashion comments on your robes whilst "tauting" you as a prophet - although I believe that the latter is is almost certainly prohibited - and definitely painful.
Quite why Kiel feels smug about knowing the difference between "marred" & "mired" but is happy with free "reign" as opposed to "rein", and "tauting" as opposed to "touting" I do not know, although I have my suspicions. My new motto is now "Forgive us our typos/malapropisms as we forgive......."
Judge Smails - are you calling TW stupid? Just stop it.
commit a lot. Not often on the very first word of
a snotty rant about someone's weight, though. Were they in that snarky article about Daly? (I didn'te read that far into it.) I'm happy to forgive typos, etc., unless said typist is not as generous with forgiveness re. personal foibles.
