Regret on the part of a TV commentator is usually about something that slipped out and was better left unsaid. But when I look back at my commentary during this year’s Masters, it’s just the opposite. I had a strong sense there was something wrong with Tiger Woods, and I should have come right out and said something about it. He did an amazing job of disguising his injury, but all along I was aware that his posture wasn’t normal—his hips weren’t aligned. Then his caddie, Steve Williams, gave him a little too much help getting out of two bunkers. I spotted that and didn’t say anything about it, and afterward I really kicked myself for it.By the U.S. Open, they could have miked Tiger’s injured knee for sound. I believe it was Robert Karlsson’s caddie who said you could actually hear it grinding and crunching as he walked.
