A Streak to the End

Tiger failed to make his 143rd consecutive cut today at the EDS Byron Nelson Championship. It's a hard number to even comprehend. Tiger played in 142 consecutive PGA tournaments and made the cut to play on the weekend in each of them. Given the struggles with his swing over the last couple of years, that's a testament to his mental perseverance and will to win. When will someone break Tiger's record? I doubt it'll be in my lifetime, if ever.

I was shocked when I got home from work and saw that on TV, but I loved his answer when asked what he would do for the weekend.

Hi Dave,

Thanks for your comments. You must be referring to Tiger's comment that he'd go home and workout and get on the practice range. He wasn't going to take the weekend off. Instead, he was going to work on his game. That's dedication!
