Sure sounds like you're hoping they find something.

Like I said, this shit brings out the ugly in people.

... again, the inference and ugly are yours, not mine.

... I hope he can get his life straightened out ... what happens next remains to be seen (I've said that benign comment before).

... my comments here are more related to the fact I'm shocked that Tiger, the Tiger we thought we knew, could do this. It's not like we found out he likes to collect butterflys and stamps or some such now is it?

... troll on Waxy

... I find it amazing you feel his golf abilities are on par with Marv Albert as a sports broadcaster, thus the comparison

What? You didn't hear that Marv was announcer of the decade?

I got $xx.xx that Tiger won't win a single major next year.

At the risk of diverting the thread......A bad pair of knees and an even worse case of the yips sank Johnny Miller's career, not an over-abundance of yard work. Even today, Miller can hit irons about as purely and precisely as anyone on the planet, and in his prime he may have been the best ever at that discipline. He's had every shot in the bag since he was fifteen, and that has never changed.
The grim reality that Miller encountered later in his career was that you can't win on the PGA tour if you can't walk, and you can't win on any tour if you can't putt.

While not to blame (that's 100% Tiger), I wonder if IMG (his managers/handlers) are starting to regret their role, whether passive or active, in this? While possible, I seriously doubt they weren't very aware of where he was and whom he was with. From his carefully crafted image to the butt of every joke and the target of every commentator, loss of existing sponsors, nevermind the loss (suspension) of his primary source of income, a possible divorce, etc. This fucker is gonna be expensive.

All you schadenfreude types will squirm at this report.

No evidence has surfaced linking Tiger Woods to the use of performance enhancing drugs, sources close to an investigation involving a Toronto doctor told The Buffalo News on Thursday.

Two of those sources said other professional athletes but not Woods could potentially wind up in trouble as a result of the federal investigation of Dr. Anthony Galea of Toronto.

I know of nothing that has come up in this investigation that would indicate Tiger Woods was using [performanceenhancing drugs], and I know of nothing that would put him into any trouble with law enforcement, said one source close to the probe.

I feel bad for Elin but if she runs off to Sweden with the kids without an agreement to do so from Tiger, my sympathy evaporates quickly.

Pretty soon all he'll have left is golf. No more wifey, no more kids, no more serial fucking, no more Ambien, no more Vicodin, no more booze.

He'll be one angry, focused motherfucker.
