Do you remember Wayne Gretzky scoring 9 goals in his final season as an NHLer while with the New York Rangers?
 
Or Gretzky, as the coach of the Phoenix Coyotes, having to tell his buddy Brett Hull, after just four games, that Hull should hang them up?
 
That’s what happens when legends lose to the still undefeated Father Time.
 
And with that introduction, we bring you to the sad saga that is Tiger Woods, who shot a (+3) round of 75 during the opening round of the 97th PGA Championship at Whistling Straits, with only two birdies and five bogeys.

On a clear, relatively calm morning at Whistling Straits, Brantford, ON’s David Hearn couldn’t make a birdie en route to a (+4) round of 76 which has him 10 strokes behind morning leader Dustin Johnson.
