Watching someone who was once so great, no matter your opinions of him as a person, fall to the point that he has, is not easy, but observing a childhood idol plummet to these depths is undeniably painful.
Why? Why must everyone continue to beat up on the guy? This is a person who did so much for golf. He changed so much about golf for the better, but now he's everyone's punching bag. Instead of throwing him out in the trash and treating him like garbage, why don't we help him?
Another major championship has come and gone, and it was another major disappointment for Tiger Woods. At the U.S. Open held at Chambers Bay outside of Seattle, Woods ballooned with an opening round 80 followed by a 76 on Friday and was cut from play for the weekend.
In the first round Carlsen lost on time in a winning position against Veselin Topalov. The 40-year-old Bulgarian grandmaster turned this lucky break into first place with a string of victories reminiscent of his triumph at the world championship tournament in San Luis in 2005. In the last round Topalov held Vishy Anand, 45, to a draw.
Nadal is in a spot where people use the words 'won't' and 'still when describing his form. 'He won't win another French' or 'he's still a threat' is what they say now and what they'll continue to say until he retires.
Earl Woods said he made it clear his purpose was "not to raise a golfer. I wanted to raise a good person." Despite the bad reputation that follows Tiger these days, here's proof that there's still a good person living inside of him.
A fanciful, fantasy exchange between Mr. Smooth and Mr. In Control after Tiger Woods finished his worst performance at the Players Championship Tiger...
Every year it seems less and less likely that Tiger will catch Jack. He certainly lost his way both professionally and personally. But I bet there are a lot of people Tiger's age that, like me, would love to see him win at least once more.
Champions like Tiger Woods are always charting and changing their course to be certain everything is on track. Tiger didn't just come to Augusta because it was the popular thing to do. He wouldn't have showed up if he wasn't ready to win. He came to win and he's prepared to win.
With a simple tweet on Friday afternoon, Tiger Woods shifted the secondary market for 2015 Masters tickets. Woods announced his participation in the tournament and prices immediately started going up, at least for the first two rounds.
There are several reasons why celebrities -- and lay folk -- change their names. Norma Jean Baker became Marilyn Monroe, now synonymous with bombshell beauty. I present 14 celebrities who changed their names, and seven reasons why they may have done so.
It is foolhardy to reduce a complex human being to something as simplistic as race. Every child knows that one should not judge a book by its cover. Racial categories inevitably evaluate people based upon outward appearances.
It is often argued that prenuptial agreements reflect a lack of trust. However, we live in a trust but verify era of relationships as illustrated by numerous background check services.
Recently, I have been listening and watching with great interest to the self-proclaimed experts on Tiger Woods and his golfing career. Many of his critics have probably never picked up a golf club or, at best, are 18 handicappers at their local Muni.
After five years on the baseball beat Alison Gordon returned to real life and turned to fiction. She wrote murder mysteries set in the world of baseball and enjoyed considerable success. Sportsworld is now replete with women in all capacities and for that we owe a debt to Alison Gordon.
