Back to the original subject, not Tiger's fashion statements (and what about that gum chewing?!!!).....here is something going around Facebook that I think captures the spirit of Tiger's win very well.

"This is why I was rooting for Tiger today......

He had it all. Everything. Until he didn’t. And the fall was not a small one. It was documented everywhere. All his sins, and there were plenty, for the world to see. Whispers, finger pointing, head shaking, headlines.

Slowly, with almost nobody watching and even less believing, he started coming back. An injury almost ended the comeback before it even started. He persevered through that as well.

Today, with the world watching, he does it. A generation who years ago sat with their dads watching Tiger win sat with their own kids now and said, “watch this.” A generation inspired to become and excel at golf by watching Tiger on TV as kids watched one more time today as he passed them on the leaderboard.

His children who watched it all unfold over the last decade with their own parts in the story are waiting for him just off the 18th green. The mom who watched her son have it all, and then lose it all, is waiting too. She never left, by the way. Mommas almost never do.

The story isn’t perfect. They never are. We never are. But it’s a heck of a good one. Watch closely kids. Being great is one thing. Being great after falling out of grace takes twice as much work and ten times as much courage. That’s the good stuff in life. That’s why a bunch of old dudes got tears in their eyes today."

Tiger made it into Stanford (and was reportedly a good student) on his own, as I'm pretty sure Earl didn't have the big bucks...to buy Tiger's way in.


Does Stanford give athletics scholarships? - Quora

Quote:
Stanford is different because if you look how they evaluate their applications, you will see that, “In some cases, exceptional abilities in athletics may influence our decision if the applicant is otherwise well qualified, but such abilities never, by themselves, ensure admission to Stanford.” See Our Selection Process

"Hooked on a feeling." (poke here)

Quote:
The younger Adducci, a 39-year-old self-employed daytrader, was a nervous wreck. He flew from Wisconsin to Las Vegas earlier in the week to place the wager, which he claims to be his first-ever bet on sports in his life.

A man with a mortgage on his house, two student loans and two car loans decided he would take $85,000, which he said was "everything I had that I could afford to lose," and place it on Tiger.

Why? "I just thought it was pre-destined for him to win," Adducci explained when reached on the phone on Monday afternoon.
One could legitimately argue that it was a very reckless thing for him to do, especially given his financial situation at the time...but it certainly worked out.

Good for him!

An interesting opinion piece, on the current state and future...of the game so many of us love.

I really hope...the prediction is wrong.



Future of Golf. (poke here)
Quote:

For Matt Powell, VP and senior industry adviser at The NPD Group Inc., a monumental moment for a golf legend does not an industrywide rebound make.

“There are a lot of systemic headwinds for golf that are just not going away — in particular: Millennials are not picking up the game as quickly as Boomers are aging out of it,” explained Powell. “The game needs young people to be playing it to reverse its fortunes. I don’t think a 43-year-old guy winning a golf tournament is going to inspire young people to get out and pick up the game.’

Despite the inspiring message, Poser and Powell are both doubtful that Woods’ win will significantly resonate with teen males — the cohort on whom the future of the sport largely rests.

Personal perspective, relativity, bias and interpretation tend to yield differing results.....which we have!

This video ?

Tiger Woods Rage Compilation - YouTube

Wonder how much admiration Tiger fans had for Sergio's talent and contributions to the game. He deserves to be forgiven too ? Way to go PGA. At least the NFL calls a penalty on poor sportsmanship.
