Show Highlights:
-John Hawkins said 'it's put up or shut up' time for Tiger Woods because he's running out of comebacks
-Charlie Rymer thinks Tiger looks and sounds ready to play for the first time all season
-Jay Coffin would be more surprised if Tiger won than if he missed the cut at the Frys.com Open
-John Hawkins said when you've held almost every Major scoring record for a decade, a 62 in a practice round isn't a big deal
-Jay Coffin said no matter what Tiger Woods tells us, a top 10 would be a successful week for Tiger Woods
-John Hawkins said Tiger Woods doesn't just move the needle, he is the needle
-Charlie Rymer said being grouped with Tiger Woods will not benefit Patrick Cantlay because he has a chance to win the golf tournament. Jay Coffin and John Hawkins think the grouping is great for Cantlay's future.
-John Hawkins said coming off the Tiger Woods era, Luke Donald should shut up about not getting enough respect and just go out there and win tournaments

Viewer Comments and Questions:
Ray Storey:
In regards to Tiger's comeback, it doesn't matter if Tiger has a thousand excuses, he is still the best and primed for Hall of Fame honors. Has any one of you, minus Charlie, ever changed your golf swing and still won titles? It's hard but he will overcome the naysayers because you two guys, Hawk and Jay, are his fuel. He'll catch both of your tongues in the long run.

Lynne Davison:
Nobody cares how Tiger does in this insignificant event. He can win and who cares. He is a good golfer, period, but he is still a bum! He has not changed his demeanor and he continues to view himself above the masses. I could care less if he ever participates again. He could not carry Jack Nicklaus’ bag or Arnold Palmer’s dedication to the game. He is a fake.

Thomas McNunn:
If Tiger shoots 59, 69 or 79, how important is it for the game?  I just hope the TV folks are reminded that there are 75+ other great players out there, so give them some TV time!

Aras Naujokas:
I would rather watch a 'rebuilding' Tiger Woods than a winning Keegan Bradley any day. You guys need to stop drinking the hate-tiger-ade.  A high tide raises all boats.
