After finishing last weekend's Masters like a 15 year-old Junior golfer, kicking and throwing clubs as if his Mommy told him he couldn't get ice cream after the game, grown man Tiger Woods told his fans this week that he he's taking a few weeks off instead of playing golf for money like a professional.
I think having three girls, whom you've had sexual relations with, all in a room together, talking about you, is every man's nightmare. In Tiger Woods' nightmare, it's three former porn star mistresses in a room talking about him, in front of a camera, right before the Masters, on the eve of what he, and many of us, thought was his comeback to greatness. And his nightmare just got real.
A man who gambles on professional golf has either mastered gambling on real sports, and has become bored by constantly winning 8 game NBA parlays, or is a degenerate loser who just likes wasting his money. Either way, it's important to know that U.K. bookies only needed Tiger Woods to win one easy tournament in the past 3 years to make him the favorite for The Masters which tees off on April 5th.
Let's call the Republican Presidential Race what it really is. A bunch of Junior Varsity candidates with no breakout star quality and no clear-cut favorite. Donald Trump used the race to boost his floundering TV ratings. Herman Cain used it to meet more pretty girls. And Ron Paul even docked his spaceship long enough to run his 15th Presidential campaign in the past decade. If these lunatics can be taken serious as possible leaders of the free world, then I see nothing wrong with nominating some our favorite athletes to take a shot at the White House too.
After a very successful decade with Tiger Woods that ended in 2010, ex swing coach Hank Haney has released a book about his time with the golfer he considered "the best of all time." Tiger, who appreciated the success the two experienced, was not supportive of the book and did not appreciate someone from his inner circle cashing in on their relationship.
The ex Mrs. Tiger Woods is not just making use of the $100 million, she received in her divorce for the golf star, she is putting on a show with it, recently purchasing a $12 million dollar mansion and then bulldozing it.
Tiger Woods has not won a PGA event in 26 events, dating back to the Australian Masters in November 2009, but he now has a 3 stroke lead going into the weekend at the Chevron World Challenge in Thousand Oaks, CA.
After 36 holes, Tiger was atop the leader board of the Australian open. He looked liked his old self. He looked poised to end his drought of win-less tournaments. He looked great again. Unfortunately, he cannot sustain anything great for any significant period of time.
