Why does the Wash Post home web page read:

"EARLY LEAD | Seeking 15th major, Woods is tied with Stuart Appleby at 4-under in first round."

This has been up for some time now. According to the leaderboards I have looked at, Tiger reached -2 and is currently at -1.

I used to love golf. I played for over 40 years and now I do not want to support or watch the game anymore. The game is nothing more than a super charged ball and a spring effect club with a bunch of silver spoon fed grown-up brats who believe what they do is important. Tiger used to be interesting but the he broke his smile on that silver spoon, the reporters are nothing more than cheerleaders, the PGA is lost without Tiger and he has lost his smile. What a shame, a great game destroyed by the people who play it, the journalist who report on it, and the organizations who have let technology destroy it. For you fools who believe that you are playing with the same caliber of club and ball that you are playing with, wake up, you'res are good, theirs are perfect. A shaft for a single club valued at near $1000.00, I need say no more. Where is the challenge in that?

I wonder if other major newspaper cover golf the same way as the Post. If so, the PGA should just change it's name to 'Tiger Woods and the PGA', sort of like Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers'
