Lovely, Just Lovely – Tiger Woods Set to Play in The Masters

“It’s Official: Tiger Woods Announces Return to Golf”

Looks like we’ll be seeing Tiger in Augusta come April. Ugh. I’m honestly disappointed. The man is worth a gazillion dollars, so he most certainly does not need the money. Rumor has it he’s “100% focused on his family and rebuilding a relationship with his wife”. Hmm. Well, if that really were true, wouldn’t you think he’d actually make that his priority? Why put yourself back in the spotlight of a major televised event so soon?

I’ll tell you why. He’s greedy, selfish and too worried about his image. A few months of therapy and a staged public apology aren’t going to quite cut it just yet. While I am intrigued to see how the fans and fellow golfers will react to his presence, I’m sure that too will be contrived. I can only imagine the rules and regulations Tiger’s ‘handlers’ will enforce.

So the next question is, do we think Elin will also be in Augusta supporting her cheating husband? Personally, I hope she chooses to stay home. He should only be so lucky if she even watches on TV.

    Ok, a bit of a rant but there’s been so much talk of this and no one at work cares what I think or even really cares about golf so …Perhaps my perspective is different b/c I’m not married, but can you really work on family issues all day, all week? How does going to work mean that you can’t also focus on your family? What are you supposed to do 24 hrs a day to make things better? Lots of athletes say that when they’re on the field or on the court they can get away from their problems (marital, family health, etc.) and it helps them stay focused and grounded and provides perspective when the game is over. Spending all day in your head would drive anyone crazy. I’m not surprised he wants to get back to playing so soon. If it were me, I’d want a sanctuary too. And again, I get that my perspective is different, but his crime is cheating. Tons of men cheat (and not just men) and while not with so many(!) women and in such a public spectacle, they too go back to work/careers even as they try to work on their marital issues. And I’m not just talking regular, everyday people, CEOs, tv stars (no one expects Jessie James not to do his tv show), other athletes … If it were a real crime, like murder, vehicular manslaughter, rape … I’d feel a lot differently. Like I’m growing concerned about my fave Big Ben having 2 sexual assault charges brought against him in less than a year. Something seems off about that.

    Anyway, I don’t think he cares if Elin comes (thought I’m sure his people do) or watches on tv b/c it’s really about getting back to a place where he feels comfortable so he really can start to put his life, and his family, back together again. He’s not used to having a life so out of control, and yes, I know he did it to himself, but the golf course is where he can start to regain some control which, I think, will actually help him deal w/ everything else better as well.

    I, for one, am glad he’s playing and am excited to watch. I haven’t watched golf since this debacle began – it’s just not as much fun, and really … it is all about me. 😉

    Look at me, I feel like a blogger!

    I don’t mind Tiger playing The Masters just as long as he’s not going to start to complain when members of the press or the fans throw jabs at him. All this talk of him being thick is a crock as we now know !

    Downstairs Joe – good point, but all the more reason I’m frustrated. Thanks to Augusta’s prestige, utmost respect for the game and strict rules, Tiger will be protected. It’s no coincidence he’s returning to The Master’s, it’s a very calculated move on ‘his people’s’ part. All the more proof his priorities seem to be more focused on his own image and career. Practice what you preach Tiger – if the contrived words of your public apology meant anything, stay in hiding a heck of a lot longer and work on attempting to fix your family instead, not your d*mn career.

    Thanks Lorrine – but it’s actually dudette =)

    Marsha – exactly!!

    Just an FYI Augusta is one of the most strictly enforced events in golf as far as who is let in the gates for media (at least thats what ive heard). So paparazzi (sp) will be held at bay. Some say that this was the best event for him to come back because of this…. Just a thought.

    I agree 100% He needs to continue “working on” his personal life and issues. No golf yet!
