In the article "Woods struggles at Quail Hollow" Bob Harig explains that after almost five months away from tournament golf, it was expected that Tiger Woods would struggle. And that is just what he did. Tiger claims "It was one of those days". During this competition, Woods shot his first double bogy of the year in early fourth round play, and it only got worse after that. This connects to me because I believe if you leave something without competing or practicing for a long time, you will lose some skill and experience that is needed to succeed in whatever it is you do. This is a very good example of that. Even though Tiger could not help the fact that he had to be away from the sport, he was still away and this hurt him badly. Why do you think Tiger Woods struggled so much at Quail Hollow?

In the article "One Toe Back In The Classroom" Karl Fisch explains that there are many budget cuts at our school. The school is cutting many good teachers, and because of this Mr. Fisch will be teacher Algebra 1 next year. He states that he is not only excited to be back in the classroom and have his own class and get to know the students he teaches, but he is also nervous about this because not only has he not taught a class for 10 years but he will also have much more work. These budget cuts are affecting our school greatly because of all the lay-offs that are happening. Also they are effecting me because I may not have a chance to have some of the great teachers in our school .How will this affect you?
