After a round of golf at Stryker Golf Course on Fort Bragg In March of 1997, I registered for a chance to win tickets to the Masters Golf Tournament in Augusta, Georgia. I wasn't interested in going, but was urged by the members of my foursome to put my name in for the raffle drawing.
For leaders, Tiger Woods's fall should serve as a clarion call for a deeper understanding of and commitment to both moral and personal integrity. Even the most gifted and successful performer in history can be felled by the uneven imbalance of a life live without integrity.

While any sports shoe and apparel manufacturer can sign star athletes, Under Armour and Nike's other rivals have yet to master its use of the news media for promotional leverage. Nike pioneered this strategy during the 1984 Olympics.
To say that Tiger Woods will make a comeback and that he will break Jack Nicklaus' record for the most major championship wins would be a huge stretch and probably untrue. In fact, Tiger himself doesn't even know what the future holds.
It used to be that guiding a pro athlete toward better performance was easy. They would be missing some obvious component of a wor...
What happened to Rafael Nadal, in his loss to Fabio Fognini in the third round of the US Open is what everyone is afraid of: falling from a great height. It, in fact conforms to Aristotle's definition of tragedy which is the fall of a man of high position.
It's time to leave Tiger Woods alone. I personally hope he can find his way out of whatever has him down right now. I hope he starts winning golf tournaments again. I hope he wins another major and comes closer to breaking Nicklaus' record.

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.
