  1. Great article, Greg…full circle for you watching him all this time lol.
    Once the Big Three were no longer winning, and retired, the game it was still great viewing, but Tiger certainly re-energized it and as you say, doubled the size of the audience. A whole lot more fun to watch when he’s on the leaderboard (and chatting and smiling). Cheers!

  2. Eldrick sex addiction therapy what a fucking joke how about just a philandering dirt bag who disrespected his pregnant wife multiple times while she is in the hospital giving birth to his child. Does anyone know personally of anyone ever going to rehab for that i don’t. So he can draw a crowd well so can a car wreck i always root for the field not a fan but that’s just me.

  3. I’ve never given much credence to Serena William’s “poor poor me its so hard to be black in Tennis” or the people who made the same things up about Tiger. Both Tiger and Serena are blessed with one in a million athleticism and brains to go with it. I don’t pity anything about them.

    The problem was never Tiger, the problem was everyone else putting him on a ridiculous pedestal. If I want good moral fiber I’ll pick up a book by Dr. Gary Chapman or Phillip Yancey. But if I want to see a great round of golf at a major on a Sunday, you’re damn right I want Tiger to be in it.

  4. I had the opportunity to interact with Tiger on a regular basis between 00′-02′, working at Hilton Torrey Pines. I worked 5am-130pm, and watched his work ethic firsthand.

    6am practice, followed by intense weight training: Everyone said he repped 5 sets of 3 plates on the bench, aka 315. One on one, his personality was ok. In a group, he was dominant and quiet. Great poker face.

    As a happily married father of 3, I can’t justify or tolerate his indiscretions as a husband and a father. I do know he wasn’t allowed to grow up like anyone else, and was probably trying to make up for those high school, college years. Again, not justifying, just trying to relate.

    What I can say with 100% certainty as a Christian and a firm believer of “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger”, is 99.9% of people don’t go from the lowest of lows back to the highest level possible in 10 short years.

    Appreciate his greatness for what it is, and be prepared to never see it again in your lifetime. Be careful to judge what you don’t understand. With all that said…

    GO PHIL!!!
