I just realized that with all of Tiger's recent 'transgressions,' how did he focus in his tournaments? If i was him, that would constantly be on my mind! Imagine how good he actually could have been if he was on the straight-and-narrow!
May actually have worked the other way we don't know if he won during his dalliances or lost. The sad part of all this is still not being talked about and that is his First Tee foundation, that preaches the lessons of golf to kids who need examples of honesty and integrity in their lives. Not sure how that's gonna work out now. He failed the first lesson of leadership, and golf and that is personal integrity. Sad really
That's why he does what he does and you do what you do.
True enough and watch, he'll be back you'll see
Oh shut up as if Tiger Woods invented infidelity and performing well at his job. You don't know Tiger Woods nor do you know what his relationship was with his wife? He's a celebrity; only people in his family know who he really is. I don't know those people and neither do you. Stop harping on the dude as if Jesus Christ let you down or something. For those of you who raise your children to idolize sports figures or entertainer or anyone except yourself; you're a moron. Give you children real people to look up to and model after. Namely yourself. Don't rely on some enigmatic superstar personality to ingratiate their little minds at your behest. Moron.
If Tiger died today, would he go to heaven?
Please respond as though it was your last words.
I think he said in an interview somewhere that he averaged 3-4 hours of sleep a day. Now we know why!
We all make mistakes in life. Tiger Woods is not a good golfer. He is a great golfer. His personal life is between his family, himself and most importantly our forgiving GOD. I pray that he can find peace with himself and return to the game of golf.
Great men do not allow focus on the future and not the past because there is really nothing anyone can do about the past. See my hub http://hubpages.com/hub/Photo-Gallery-D … nt-Eldrick
OMG I love Tiger Woods, so he screwed around while he was married.....
Tiger, Divorce your wife she will never forgive you, the public humiliation will see to that. Go back to doing what you are good at GOLF..... they need you
ha these guys who think they are better than you who are they to judge you. You will be judged when you are dead life is for the living get on with it.
100% behind ya buddus!!!
I think all his "transgressions" are what made him a better athlete. Think of how relaxed he had to be going out on the course. "It was good last night!", "Win, Lose, doesn't matter. I've got something waitin' for me back at the hotel. Oh yeah"
ESPN reported that his wife was filing for divorce. In my career of working with people I've seen two things that derail careers. One is problems with drugs and alcohol, the other is divorce.
If he does get divorced, I wonder if he will ever return to the same playing level.
Whoever would have thought, there was all that dirt beneath his surface. I honestly can't believe he had so many women,and never thought it may possibly lead to his downfall one day.
It's a tragedy really, not only to his golfing superb abilties but also to his family, his wife and kids.
What downfall are you referring to and how has all this affected his golfing abilities? I mean yeah there will be a downfall in his revenues from advertising, but I do not believe that his level of play will deteriorate once he assumes playing.
As for having so many women, looking at him I doubt there were many of them before he became millionaire, so maybe he was trying to make up for it.
Its not established as 100% fact yet he was also linked with a doctor that prescribed growth hormones to athletes. I wonder if anything will ever come out of that.
Tiger was a very busy man, I don't understand. I think he need couseling or something. I am also wondering if all the women in his life are honest or just want publicity.
*Bill Clinton in court talking*
Im really happy for you, im gonna let you finish
But TIGER WOODS is one of the best wife cheaters OFF ALL TIME!!!
One of the best cheaters of ALL TIME!!
Another example of the moral collapse of our sociaty and the break down of the family. Those poor kids how horrible!
But perhaps he is an example of the coarsening of society? Not that society hasn't always been coarse...people have been cheating on their spouses since marriage was invented.
But there are no role models for people to seek a higher level. (How many religious types preached sanctity of marriage, only to be revealed as indulgin in prostitutes themselves.)
But all you have to do is look at TV - the baby sitter practically every parent uses these days. As soon as there kid is old enough to sit up, plop it goes in front of the TV for indoctrination.
And that indoctrination for girls and boys, is that girls were put on the planet as eye candy for boys. They must look attractive for boys, they must enjoy the ogling that boys give them, if boys aren't interested they must gang up on him and make him interested (those sick Axe commercials).
And it's no use saying, "If those commercials offend you, don't watch them." It's not me but the boys who watch this crap and get it engrained into their heads that women are sex objects first last and always that is responsible for a lot of today's problems. Boys are egomaniacs anyway. Give 'em five hours of indoctrinaton a day that females are there for sex only.. and give girls the same hours of indoctrination that that's what *they're for, and today's society is what you get.
As for Tiger Woods, I think he should be ashamed of himself, but it is interesting how cowardly he's being. It will only make it harder for him when he does decide to talk to the press. I hope his wife takes him to the cleaners!
Why should Tiger Woods be the role models for out kids morality. He is a craftsman as far as his sport goes. Maybe the lesson here is as a sportsman don't get married to quickly. Maybe because he got married too quickly that could be why he does not know how to deal with the situation. As far as commercial endorsements goes' there are other things he could endorse. If there were so many women and world we live in with safe sex is an advert that needs to be encourage. What I'm thinking is that Tiger might be the right man to do that. We must remember a sportsman is a sportsman. Sportsman come from many different background and are not the Holy of Holies as many of us here. He is a golfer and not a Priest thank God for that, so he can endorse a condom brand LOL
If you ask me, this is a woman scorned getting even with co-horts in the golf world to back her up. The sole purpose to get rid of one of the best players in golf.
So. Tiger woods had multiple affairs. BFD! How many people in the entertainment world have not done the same thing? If it were me, I would get a picture of the bitch slap it on a t-shirt and wear it at every tournament. On the front, her pic, on the back...yeah I banged her!
You want publicity using my name honey...here it is!
The media went way too far over this. If it was discovered that I hit 10 fire hydrants, had affairs with 1,000 women, ran over a dozen dogs, and showed my penis to the paparrazi 100 times. Do you think anyone would give a flying rooster?
Come on! people need to get over it. He made a huge mistake dropping out of Golf.
And, there is nobody but the media to blame for it.
let him work out his private life at home. I could care less!
Call it what you want, but I think Tiger got a healthy dose of karma. He's a cheat in his personal life, maybe not on the golf course. He advocates integrity to kids and cheats behind their backs.
Sad that he put himself and his family in this position. Forget about the people HE used for sex. They were objects, not people. The fact that they came out against him is just his own consequences.
Hard, hard lessons to learn.
I have no sympathy for him. He constructed this all very carefully in his mind and it unraveled without him being able to control any of it. So he has to start over. Welcome to real life. People have to do this every day and they didn't lead double lives, but have had catastrophic losses because of death, disease and more. So much the better he has a chance to learn important lessons of real integrity. Maybe now he can promote it without a double standard.
yeah those Axe commercials are pretty lame. sometimes i watch some of these ads in primetime and think 'wow, if i had little kids in the house these ads would be uncool'.
but i still think most people are decent. Tiger Woods is a huge celebrity and a jillionaire and away from his wife so he took full advantage. it kills me when they say they love their wife. if he really did love his wife, no woman could tempt him, not even Anjelina Jolie naked.
I couldn't agree more. We switch the channel constantly through some ads (I've got an 8 yr old bro). It's the perfume ads especially..it's like spraying me = sexeh time
I agree most people are decent and Tiger definitely took advantage of it. I'm not defending him-cheating is WRONG and cheating while still professing deep love is DOUBLY WRONG, but David Beckham cheated on Victoria and that didn't have any of the repercussions like Tiger's having. I don't get it.
Shouldn't we have the same precedent for everyone. I'm not playing the race card either, in case people think I'm making it a colour issue. He's not the first cheating celeb and won't be the last.
Society seems to be making an example of him....I do hope his wife rinses him dry-His cowardly behaviour handling the situation is piss poor.
The problem, I think, is not that he cheated on his wife, but that he did it with *so many* women! The guy seems to have had a woman in every city.
If he'd cheated once, I don't think the publicity would be this bad. Equally, if he'd stood up like a man, called a press conference, and stood in front of people and told them to mind their own business, even, instead of staying in seclusion and issuing press releases on his website!
Even the fiance who killed (accidently or otherwise) football player Chris Henry had the cojones to go to his funeral, and actually make a speech about how much she loved him! But Tiger, who only cheated and didn't kill anyone, refuses to meet the press.
Some people say it isn't our business. And it wouldn't be if this were some poor schmuck that the majority of us hang around with . No one cares except his family, true. But when it's a guy like Tiger...it comes with the territory. If he wanted to keep his private life private, he shoudl have read his speech in front of live people, again, not just put it on his website.
But it would have taken courage to do that. I'm not sure that I'd have that courage if *I* were in his place - not that I'd've been that dumb! - but he sure doesn't have that courage.
I suppose your right he's about 10 over par with women now. I agree his cowardice is equally shameful. Running away from the press and not saying a damn thing apart from I'm leaving golf until I can sort it...geez Tger, get it together.
I find it as an utter nonsense when reporters start talking that he need to call a press conference and explain his actions to the public. Wtf, do they explain themselves to Tiger? Then why should he explain himself to them? At the end of the day it's his right to bang whoever he wants and that's not people's business. The fact that he's famous doesn't mean that he's held responsible to public for his personal life decisions, although their interest in his life is not surprising.
Maybe he should have said, she threw the gulf club and he lost control of the vehicle. That would have made him brave and people would not be calling him a coward?
He's not being called a coward because he didn't hit his wife, he's being called a coward because he refused to speak to the police for three days, and he won't give a press conference to face the press and the public....if only to stand up publically and say, "I have nothing to say." But he's just... hiding.
He is doing good everything is OK. Haven't you notice, that his mother in law, was stretchered out suffering with a belly ache. It's his household he has to keep happy, the public should mind their own business. There are too many lonely people here
Well, I have to say I disagree. Men who love their wives do have affairs, because they want a little bit of variety in their sex life. But again, most of them don't have 14 mistresses, all apparently running at the same time!
If statistics are to be believed, most people do cheat on their spouse. IF they are smart and use protection, no repercussions usually come of it.
But apparently Tiger didnt' use condoms, so he was trusting these women to be disease free, and to make sure they didn't get pregnant. That's what I don't understand. Your whole reputation depends on you being a "stand up guy", and you depend on someone else to ensure you don't father a love child, whom you will then have to pay for for the rest of your life? Stupid.
The entire episode is an affirmation there is but ONE lesson to learn when dealing with temptation, keep your eye on the Creator, and not on his creation. Forgiveness is the lesson for us all, especially Tiger.
while i agree he doesn't need to call a press conference, he still is a role model of sorts for a lot of young people. a very rich role model. Nike alone gave him $30 million for his good name. he is allowed to do what he wants in his private life, but he has to understand that he's also carrying the weight of all of those commercial endorsements and has to conduct himself with a reasonable amount of decorum. if he wants to tarnish his own name, that's fine, but when he attaches his name to big companies who use him as a postive force for their products, placing their logos and stuff on his clothes, etc. he has a certain amount of responsibility to them.
Tiger had no shortage of women before he became a billionaire. but he promised his wife when he married her those days were over.
I would rather say that big companies attached their name to his name, instead the other way. And yes he has a certain amount of responsibility to them and they have the right to terminate contract if he fails to fulfill his responsibilities, which a lot of them did, so I don't see any problem there. I don't see that he screwed them.
Personally I have a problem with that whole role model bs thing, as none of these highly paid athletes choose themselves to be role models for young people, it is big companies and media that are doing it in order to make hefty profits from selling these "role models" and their merchandise. When later it turns out that some athlete is not what they advertised him to be, why blame him for not living to the role model standards, blame big companies for selling him to the public as some kind of a role model.
Now what he promised to his wife when he married her I don't know, we haven't been drinking coffees together.
i completely agree with you on the role models part. parents should be children's role models.
PS Only the role model part, when things like this happens all the attack is aimed at Tiger, because he is a man. All the sympathy goes to his wife but the story is not hard to follow, if you read between the lines.
He is a great sportsman but the story about the accident does not make sense.
As we can all see Tiger is not the dominant one in the relationship. It seems to me that he could be a victim of bullying. Tell which of you would give up you craft, in a situation like we have with Tiger.
We all are Gods passing judgement, without knowing the full facts. How do we know that as a man going elsewhere was his way of walking away. Some men stand and trade punches, but he went and made love, I not going to feel sorry for him. I feel rather glad for him, can you imagine what the media would say, had he hit his wife. ( Just a thought )
It is a sad situation and a sad commentary on ourselves. There is so much more involved. He was driven as a young man by his father and while the skills got honed so too did his resentment.
Go back over the earlier tournments - golf WAS a gentleman and ladies game. Bad behavior wasn't tolerated on the courses or in the games, yet Tiger got away with it time after time - the cameras just cut away when he got started. The media built him up and he was too immature to handle the pressures of "too much, too soon". Most fell for the media's rendition of who Tiger was and didn't take into consideration that there was a lot more underneath. Tiger ran with the fantasy and played it for everything it was worth. I'm sure there must be some good points here to TW but it's going to take a long time to unravel the mess and a long time for folks to recover...
As far as him being a "role model", consider what being a role model really is all about. Did you allow your children to look up to him because of the media hype or because of what you, yourself, had knew to be fact?
ha ha yeah really. how did he even sleep for that matter!
it's a two-edged sword. some celebrities love to show off their beautiful houses, cars, children and women and bask in the glow of the flashbulbs going off non-stop. yet they expect people to give them their privacy when things go south. i like people like Harrison Ford, etc. who shun the limelight altogether and stay very private all the time. i respect that anyway.
And we the public are so jealous, wanting to be them
i don't want to be Tiger Woods. and i am certainly not envious of the man.
I don't blame you...who would want to be. I agree with you more celebs should be more private with their personal lives
So what he should have done, instead of driving off, what he should have do was grab his wife and give her a good beating, then keep it private. There was no need for the law to be involved. I confused here: Can't have it both ways, just two of those ladies would have done me nicely. LOL
I seriously don't understand why one has to lose a career because some bitches want to get famous. If I ever meet these women who claim they had flings with Tiger I would shoot them all because they are nothing but gold diggers who couldn't care less but rob Tiger of all the hard earned dollars he made.
those women are opportunitsts. since they can't have Tiger, who professed his love to at least one of them, they decided to get back at him. i think that's pretty sad though. even if you discover that the man who supposedly loves you dumps you like a hot potato, let him go, i say. i never understood women who want to get him back or get revenge on him. he doesn't have me, that's revenge enough
besides, that's what he wants - you to still be thinkng about him, etc.
far better to just erase him completely.
Tiger is a golfer. His father had these types of issues, but wasnt a billionaire with women at his fingertips. I wonder, if Tiger had asked you.... would you have been there?
The sad part of this is the children and the ground swell of interest in golf again.
His wife - I think she is a strong woman and will make sure her children are well cared for and not damaged by this.
Love and healing to all...
On the television during all of this, they showed a pictures of about 12 women, tigers indescretions.
On the one hand, you can see how difficult it could be for his wife and family.
On the other, all I could think of was tigers eyes - these are my playmates.
As a human he is susceptible to all the temptations here in this thing we call life. I did not follow because I thought he was a great husband,I marvel at the way he plays the most difficult, frustrating, and challenging sport there is. I have stopped watching golf because the tour is a little stale without him. I hope he returns SOON!

I felt like this weekend's US Open I was watching a renewed game where there is intrigue and interest without Tiger.One young talented and seemingly nice guy that plays at the highest level is very refreshing. Looking forward to seeing Rory play next.

14 Majors, 71 PGA victories, and a golfer who dominates his profession!!! There have been countless clutch performances when discussing Tiger Woods as the best ever, but is he better than Muhammad Ali, Michael Jordan, Jerry Rice....I think he is...Tiger Woods (like Jordan) has revolutionized...

Even Nicklaus applauded him!!This win tied Woods with Nicklaus — the tournament founder!! http://www.nytimes.com/2012/06/04/sport … -wins.html

Tiger has announced he will return to golf at the Masters and to be honest I don't want him to win. I would prefer a Mickelson victory...although if he's in contention it will be exciting!
by Richard Ricky Hale 8 years ago
It may be just me, but I am longing to see Tiger get back to his former self. He was and still is the only reason I watch golf. Will we ever see the old Tiger again?
by Ball2Day 8 years ago
Is Tiger Woods return to the game of golf that significant?I think so. I will be the first to admit that I am a casual golf fan. It only becomes a must watch when Tiger is in the hunt. My wife who is worst than me only knows one name. It is like when Michael was playing, she see only watched...
