The most prominent golfer in the world just got ousted from the first round.

So continues the story of a Tiger Woods, a golf legend who appears to have put his best golf behind him.

When Thomas Bjorn defeated Woods this week, it became the second time in Woods's professional career that he didn't get out of the first round, in another disappointing effort at WGC-Accenture Match Play championship in Tucson, Arizona.

Even Woods ripped his own performance, saying that he had shots he normally makes but simply could make them.

I had a chance, I had all the momentum going to 19 and just gave it way, said Woods.

When he's on the range with Sean Foley, Woods strikes the ball beautifully.

But that's the range. The course is completely different.

It may not be Woods's swing that's his problem, but rather his confidence. For a golfer who is known for his great confidence, to have a mental problem slowing his game is almost unfathomable.

Perhaps this is just a rough patch for Woods. He's had them before.

But as of right now, we are not seeing the dominant golfer we once knew.
