As if Tiger's golf game wasn't bad enough now this

Recommended Posts

People are responsible for their own decisions. Tiger has truly fallen off the map.

strange to think how he had it all...a great life with everything...and apparently is throwing it all away. Sad

I'm a Jack Nicklaus fan so it looks less likely every year that Tiger will break his Majors record.

totally agreed...loved the Golden Bear...

I agree Tiger will not match his Majors record. But wow in 2008 it almost looked like a sure thing. 14 Majors for Tiger at the age of 32? Simply incredible. Now the guy is 41. Nicklaus doesn't have much to worry about.

Looks like Tiger needs to look to John Daly for some pointers...

 

Too bad, so sad.  Hope he gets it turned around.

Couldn't happen to a better guy. All the $$ in the world and can't get a driver??

A better guy? Don't know about that. But yeah, a friend and I were just talking about him simply hiring a driver.

That went out the window when his transgressions became public. He hasn't been the same golfer - or the same person - since then.

 

I think Tiger became more enamored with the fame and fortune and stopped loving the game. Perhaps he started to lose his desire after his father died (no more pressure to win?), but he clearly didn't handle his life properly once he had everything he could possibly have.

Tiger's game hasn't been the same since the PGA started testing for PEDs.

It all started to go downhill around the same time his Dad died. No moral compass ? Him and Dad were together for most if not all of Tigers life. The definition of a helicopter parent. Hard to feel sorry for the guy. He had it all.

Agree with most of this Bun, but his dad was no moral compass.  Maybe professional compass, but moral, certainly not.

Yeah you're probably right . Seemed to keep him out of trouble. And on his game.

I think it's rather unfair to completely ignore his back issues and surgeries. Definetly a big deal having a bad back in golf, or virtually all aspects of life. Also, appears as though alcohol was a non factor. He said in a statement that he mixed medications and didn't think it would affect him in such a way, while still acknowledging it was his own fault.

 

I mean, whatever stock he might have had left is defintely plummeting, but we shouldn't automatically assume the worst.

Good point about the back & knee issues...but I'd still say that's on him. His swing was very controlled, yet extremely fast. The amount of torque he put on his body for all those years likely caught up with him and were a huge factor in those injuries, IMO.

 

I don't doubt he's on enough medication to make a pharmacy jealous, but I wonder why he was out driving at 3am. Perhaps sleepwalking? The excuse just seems fishy to me.

ESPN photo shopping his mug shot :doh:

 

If they wanted to do him a favor, they could have used any of the hundreds of thousands of file photos that aren't, you know, mug shots.

Pretty sure it came out today that he blew a 0.00 for the police. He was honestly telling the truth about his medication

The only time that I (willingly) watched golf was when Tiger was doing this thing. That was spectacle - that was fun.

 

Nicklaus was quoted today as saying that Tiger needs help, and that he wants to do what he can to provide that help.

 

A fair and accurate telling of how and why Woods came undone is one I'd like to read. My thought was that it really started to come apart when his private weirdness, lewdness came to light in connection with his divorce. It seemed like a balloon popped and the air just started hissing out of the balloon.

 

But someone upthread talked about how getting dinged for PEDs was part of the reason he went downhill.

 

And what about the stresses and strains that his body endured as a result of being a child prodigy who repeated the same motions over and over (and over and over and over) again?

 

Fascinating case study, I imagine.
