Woods vs Garcia: A dud of a duel

Tiger Woods vs Sergio Garcia at the British Open. This matchup had been billed as a "duel in the works". It didn't last long. Garcia started out the day just one shot back but quickly lost six shots to Woods and the duel turned into a dud.

Woods is a heart breaker. Chris DiMarco was also just one shot back when the day started. Woods built his lead over DiMarco to three shots and it looked like it might be over. But, after Woods bogeyed the 12th while DiMarco birdied the 13th, the lead was back to one and Woods looked vulnerable. Then Tiger Woods answered:

birdy - birdy - birdy - bye bye

Only DiMarco's birdy on 16 has kept this from being a rout.

UPDATE: DiMarco has also birdied the 18th to crawl back to within two shots of Woods. There was no quit in DiMarco today. Woods is playing the 18th now but it's pretty well all over.

It's over and Tiger Woods is $1,320,000 richer than when the the day dawned.
