Am I the only one who thinks so?
We all like to think we know Tiger Woods. After-all, he has been in the spotlight of tabloid news for the past year and a half. In my opinion he should never have gotten married in the first place. We are all human and make mistakes, the important thing is that we learn from our mistakes. In America we tend to root for the downfall of others, perhaps it makes us feel better about ourselves?
To me, it's all water under the bridge. I have been following the career of Tiger Woods for the past 16 years not because of his personal life - but because of his phenomenal ability to play a game that is so tough, for so many. He makes the impossible and improbable look easy. We might be able to match his skills but only while playing his video game!
There have been naysayers along the way, those who constantly root against him or try to diminish his accomplishments. Johnny Miller over the years has always been one to criticize Tiger Woods. But you know what Johnny...Tiger has 97 wins to your 32, Tiger has 71 PGA Tour wins to your 25, and Tiger has 14 Major Championship's to your 2. Just stick to announcing Johnny and let's try to keep your personal hatred for Tiger to a minimum. There are only two people in the HISTORY of the PGA Tour that have more professional victories than Tiger Woods: Jack Nicklaus with 73 and Sam Snead with 82.
Next week brings Tiger to Miami Florida, home of the TPC-Blue Monster at Doral, for the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship. Tiger is a six-time winner here with victories in 1999, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2006, and 2007. It would be fitting and make-sense that this would be the location for his first victory of 2011. The winner gets a cool $1.4 Million payday but for Tiger...it's all about the W.
Positive thoughts Tiger - show everyone what you can do!
