Tiger Woods’ failed Open bid is bad news for NBC

Three months ago, Tiger Woods clawed out his first major championship win in 11 years, and in so doing, seemed to have put an end to a decade marked by frustration, failure and grievous injury. His triumph in Augusta was an assurance that more Sunday victories would come, and in defying the ravages of time and a rickety spinal column held together with duct tape and Bubble Yum, the 43-year-old served as a beacon of hope for aging duffers and network ad sales execs alike. But much like his beleaguered vertebral discs and long-defunct marriage, the promise inherent in Tiger’s Masters comeback has disintegrated. After shooting a 78 in the first round of the Open Championship, a career third-worst performance at a major, Woods this afternoon went on to miss the cut at Royal Portrush. In so doing, the man with 15 major titles under his belt made NBC’s weekend a lot less sunny, while reminding the rest of us imperfect beings that joy is temporary and we’ve all got graves to fill.

Just the way it’s going to be.” Existentialist dread aside, Woods’ early exit almost certainly will put the squeeze on NBC’s ratings prospects. Last year, Tiger led the pack at Carnoustie as he headed into the back nine of the Sunday... Continue reading at 'Advertising Age'
