Just my 2 cents, but I think Tiger is a disgrace...... sleeping with porn stars while married with children...and anybody who holds him in high regard should be absolutely ashamed of who they are. period. Tiger is representative of all the 2 faced conservative money grubbing bigots in this country.

Tiger Woods was a creep to his wife, but they are divorced now. I don't know if I agree that he's "principled kid" but he's right, we all make mistakes. Time for everyone to get over it.

Definitely. Remember those days? Watson, Nicklaus, Player, Trevino, Norman. Kings of the game and gentlemen in the truest sense of the word. I met Gary Player at the Philadelphia International Airport a couple of years ago. Had time for everyone. Told golf stories to the TSA personnel. Dude was the consummate professional and charmed everyone he talked to. That's class. Tiger, take some notes.

The good news is that it looks like a fine bunch of new comers in past couple of years to the world tours of pro golf...many in their 20's early 30's from the UK, Germany, So Africa , Korea, and in the US as well seem to be very nice, good on and off the course behavior and all that. And these will be around for sometime and in the thick of it as players in upper 30's, 40 plus begin to march on as they all do. Tiger is somewhat of an exception,,,he was educated yes, but groomed like others no!

Jack's 18 majors and Hank Aaron's 755 homers are two of of the greatest sports records of all time, by two of the classiest athletes of all time.

I think that's why I prefer to think that Tiger will hold the record for most majors but no one will break "Jack's" record. The career performance (and records) of athletes are each to their own and based not only on how many, but how. I look forward to Tiger getting 19 or 20+...and that will be his record to stand for however long it can.

Aaron does not have that record anymore, sadly.

Sir

Mr. Woods is a terrific athlete and a man who has done much for the sport of golf.

I find it hard to understand how he got into such a predicament with his private life.

I do not really care about how many women Tiger Woods slept with, and I am not even envious (his taste in women falls far short of mine). However Tiger Woods was, and still is, “a brand”. Brands have Brand Managers. What were those managers doing when they saw the brand icon heading off into the rough with his personal behavior?

Were these people trying to stop or control his behavior or were they content to just pick up generous fees while they could?

We should not expect athletes to be able to cope with the enormous demands and stress that the public and the media place upon them. That Mr. Woods made serious mistakes is obvious, but his mentors and managers are far more culpable than he was.

Sincerely, Derek Lantin. http://dereklantin.booksabuzz.com

Woods may have been let down by his handlers, but to say that others are more culpable than he is patently absurd.

Mr Nicklaus class act,

Tiger won the US Open with a fractured leg and a torn ACL. And the greatest golfers win majors well into their 40's - hell, Tom Watson almost won the British Open at 60-something.

I wouldn't put money on this. As Tiger slumps, many young golfers are coming up who can now replicate the long drive that separated Woods from the norm in his prime. Golfers who were at the top when Tiger came along didn't do the physical training that many young golfers commonly engage in today. Even if he could replicate the form he had three years ago, that skill set is no longer unique in the PGA.

Yeah, I agree with you. And Tiger's had all the knee trouble too. Maybe he'll squeak out another four titles but he'll never dominate the game the way he once did. That is done.

and he certainly doesn't have that mental edge anymore. that is GONE.

What a class act.

I remember listening to the Masters when it was Arnie, Jack and Player with my hollowed out book stuffed with a hidden transistor radio in study hall waiting for the clock to tick and let us out. He was a class act then and it doesn't surprise me that he could give Tiger a little pat on the back. It amazes me that he did.

That's why golf is special and different from all the others...

Class and a great representative for golf.

Tend to agree with Mr. Nicklaus, I think it's just a matter of time until Tiger gets back into his stride.
The guy made a "boo boo" and he's paid the price. Time for the 2nd chance, which everyone deserves if their hearts in the right place and I think Tiger fits that scenario.

Why is "Carried Interest" not taxed as Income?

Once Tiger's new swing holds up under pressure, he can focus more on his putting, and he'll start winning again.
07:16 PM on 03/02/2011
Next time Tiger wins a tournament will be on The Senior's Tour.

That's just plain silly. That would mean that there's someone else out there who is playing consistent enough to hold him off. There isn't. Tiger will win quite a few tournaments this year. The question is will he win a major this year.

I will become your first fan. I grew up watching and admiring Jack. Still do. I wish Tiger well too. Great comment!

Jack rocks!!
Tiger needs to go visit Charlie and the Goddesses to help him get his mojo back...
