Believe in Tiger, would you? (Image:scubaeddie32/Flickr)

Neil, The Armchair Golfer, believes all references to Tiger as “unbelievable” should be banned. I agree with him.

He’s started a humorous petition, encouraging the media to refrain from referring to Tiger as “unbelievable.” Everything Woods does is totally believable.

Tiger is not unbelievable. How many times do we have to see him shoot 65 on Sunday, chip in with a one-handed follow through, or hit 250 yard 3 iron to two feet before we don’t think anything is out of the realm of possibility with this guy? Seriously?

I think it’s mainly just media hyperbole. Announcers get carried away with the moment and then throw out words that sound nice but aren’t true. How many times have you heard Dick Vitale get carried away with Duke basketball? Same goes for golf announcers and sports media with Tiger.

At this point, it would be more unbelievable if Tiger didn’t make a comeback on Sunday. You expect this guy to do the unexpected, and that’s why he’s so scary. Scary good.

Okay, my two days of Tiger worship is done.

Remember, sign Neil’s petition here.
