Try toughing one out and watching some of the other players. Who knows, you might find someone else you like following.
I'll still watch the PGA. It's not tops on my list, but if there are no interesting MLB games and there's a tournament on, it's great background noise. Even when Tiger's playing I don't actually sit down and watch. It's a filler for whatever else I'm doing like cleaning out the garage or making food. So Tiger/No Tiger, I'll still have it on.

You didn't even know Weir's first name did you?
Not to bash Michael Campbell because he seems like a cool guy, but he hasn't even finished above T-35th in a major since that win, and has dropped to #351 in the world. If I had to guess, I don't think he'll be the one filling in for Tiger in his absence.

Heh heh Read some of my other posts in this thread, you'd be surprised I didn't think Frank Nobilo was still playing.

Yeah he's sucking at the moment. Still my favourite, out of the 2 golfers I could name on sight

Before picking up golf Choi was a competitive power lifter, being able to squat 350 pounds as a 95 pound 13 year-old teenager, thus aptly nicknamed "Tank" by South Koreans.
After his 7th PGA Tour victory at the 2008 Sony Open in Hawaii, Choi donated $320,000 of his earnings to the victims' families of a warehouse fire in Seoul, South Korea which killed over forty people.
Choi came to the U.S. late in his life, learned the language while trying to make a living in pro golf and make sure his family adjusted to a new country. Unlike many foreign athletes who know English perfectly and still hide behind an interpreter because it’s easier to dodge media questions that way - see Ichiro and for years Yao Ming - Choi will do interviews in English. Which gives the fans much more truthful answers and a much better feel for the real guy behind the golfer.
And Choi speaks fine English. He’s engaging and insightful - see his story on using that $49 infomercial putter grip in Tour competition. He’s actually one of the better interviews on Tour. He even tells a good joke.
