I personally have no respect for Tiger since the scandal. In my opinion, what happens on the course (or field, court, etc.) is not nearly as important as who you are off the course as a person. Being an athlete is secondary to being a person. Although I respect and appreciate his talent and skill, I lost my respect for him personally through the scandal.
I'm a beginner to say the least. I'd do anything to shoot 80 some day. My best score right now is a 112. I started playing last summer and am trying to start playing more. I have only been playing about once a month but I'd like to start playing 3-4 times a week. Just lacking consistency but I know that comes with just playing. Hope you break 80 soon. My next milestone is 100. Lets do it!
