Happy Birthday Eldrick, I Just Couldn’t Resist!

By Michael Vogt, CGCS
Eldrick Tont Woods (born December 30, 1975), better known as Tiger Woods, is an American professional golfer whose achievements to date rank him among the most successful golfers and sports figures of all time.

It’s not news - just my commentary, this story and the news swirling around is just too good not to pontificate about.

What a train wreck this kids life turned into! How come superstars with all of the talent, money and opportunity find themselves making the poorest decisions in their private lives?

Do they see themselves as untouchable?
Hello, is anybody home?

Millions of dollars and his squeaky clean reputation have all but evaporated from Tiger’s life. One day the darling of the golfing world, the next day a cavorting cad.

This story is so big nobody knows where it will end. Many women, coast to coast secret meetings, cocktail waitresses and the stories go on and on.

The bottom line, I would suspect history will remember Tiger for all of his great accomlishments on the golf course. I sure hope Mr. Woods' name will not be used in comparison with Arnold, Jack, or Tom not for lack of golf ability, but for lack of common sense.

Hey Lefty, the doors open, here’s your chance!
