I think if you are THAT famous, you wouldn't want to be that warm. Or inviting. The media would dissect everything about your personal life, but he has almost shooed the media away from that. I have to say, I'd want the same.

I like Tiger. I respect him for how good he really is at golf, for his dedication, for his level of focus and for the fact that despite how good he is, he doesnt really act arrogant and seems very humble in his interviews.

yeah, I like him. It is very hard to find any golfer as good as him mentally and I think it is the biggest reason why he is so much better than others.

I don't think there is another golfer mentally tougher than him...and I think he's right up there with his mental game with ALL athletes personally.

Yeah, I agree, his victory in US Open last season proved it.

Nope, I don't like his attitude. I watched the Golf channel today and they showed a clip of him throwing his club. Every time things don't go his way he has a hissy fit and I'm tired of it. Suck it up and play like a man. I never saw Jack or Arnie pull any of the stuff he gets away with. I won't play with people who behave like that, good golfer or not.

The club I grew up at used to get a bunch of different golf publications. One of them would always list the junior rankings and since I had a friend in high school that played in a bunch of junior tournaments around the country, I would look to see where he was ranked. Every time I would look, this Tiger Woods guy was always at the top. One day I asked him about Tiger and he just replied "he is real good". So ever since those days back in the early 90's I have been keeping track of what this Tiger guy does to see if he makes it. So yeah, I like Tiger.

I like him very much. He's the worlds best player and has a game and mentality that I can relate to. I like to keep my focus and be determined. Being as good as he is, he's getting so much attention I can understand he doesn't want to talk to people all the time. Nobody can not like his game, that goes without saying, I understand that many would prefer him being more interactive with the audience, but I don't care. It's maybe what makes me respect him even more, that he does what he want to do. He can get mad and show emotion, don't see a problem with that, only shows how dedicated he is.

Funny, but most of the men I see playing golf behave 10x worse.

And I wonder if it occurs to everyone who whines about Tiger throwing clubs if they'd truly prefer that he act like the robots on the PGA Tour. I'm all for more personality and fewer "robots" on Tour. I admire and respect Tiger. Like? I've never dealt with him one-on-one for an extended period of time, and I can't judge him by his interviews. Who are we to judge what it takes - or what he feels it takes - to do what he does or to have the pressure he has? So I neither "like" nor "dislike" Tiger.

I agree, a little personality is nice. Not the standard BS of, "Well I didn't hit the ball today and well as I'd like to". Meanwhile everyone is watching this on TV and the player has a smile on their face while they're saying this. Who smiles while they are talking about something that upsets them?

i have a huge man-crush on tiger. i just wish he would do more for social issues and use his status for issues other than first tee type stuff (education, racism...)

are you serious?

just like Michael Jordan in BBall, Tiger is RIGHT to steer clear of social issues..... Go out, play your sport better than anyone else can, enjoy your PRIVATE life, and donate money to your charity of choice..... thats what BOTH of those guys do, and thats the smart/good way to go.... And whats this education/racism "issue" that you speak of? What's Tiger going to say or do about either one of them? I'm pretty sure Tiger is black/Asian/white/etc etc.... and most love him, and the media is all over him in a GOOD way.... so it would be a little weird for him to come out against racism when he has it better than 99% of ANYONE living in the U.S.

so you feel that since it may not be convenient for someone to speak out vocally about the racism that continues to plague this country, then they shouldnt? that it isnt a "good" thing to do? we need more people in positions of power and influence to speak out, and not hide behind their status and fame.

i am a middle school teacher, and i use what little influence and fame i have to speak to my students about how to be a better person. for tiger not to give his "real" opinion on things (like the "lynch" quotes) and not the corporately correct version is not using his status to the full. this is of course my opinion. peace out.

Simple question, do you like Tiger?

He's not always serious. If you watch closer you will see him try to make jokes everytime. They arent always funny even though he will laugh at them. lol. Yeah I like Tiger.

It's taken me this long for me to get over the "second sucks" comment. But I like him now. He has been humbled by injury. He has proven to be human. I am rooting strongly for him to do well this year (always rooted against him in the past---I like the underdog)

It is your opinion, and since you're opining about how another guy in a situation with which you can't

possibly understand chooses to live his life, I'm gonna defer to him and suggest that perhaps he knows how to do it best. Last I checked - through the Tiger Woods Foundation and various other things he's got going on - he's had quite a positive effect on the world. And suffice to say I think he's probably already done a helluva lot for fighting racism by being a respectful, hard-working, clean-cut and very public figure. Perhaps - and it's not a knock on you - more than you could ever do. Your reach simply doesn't compare to his. Besides, in my experience, the only thing talking about racism does is get people to think about racism. What good could possibly come from a Tiger/racist "controversy"? None.

    • What is it about a person who has a platform if you will and cannot use it to encourage people rather than tell everyone that if “…your young and strong like me” you don’t need a shot. What a fool!
    • Yea, that is very low spin. I wonder what your angle of attack is compared to your dynamic loft at impact. Your launch angle is good. The spin rate is just way too low.  The type of ball influences spin rate more so on irons and wedges than driver. So, a range ball could cause some lower spin numbers. With your ball speed, you should be in the high 6000's towards 7000 rpm.  Could be the ball + golf shaft + how you swing  
    • I don't know why, but I just enjoy watching this movie. I've probably seen it like a dozen times now. Maybe I don't over analyze it, and more so just enjoy the characters just getting fooled. Like, I don't nit pick movies much anyways, or if I know the surprise ending then I don't really care if some earlier plot stuff doesn't hold up as well. 
    • The Double, a 2011 Richard Gere/Topher Grace film about a Russian assassin. Par. Better than I expected. The Usual Suspects, with my wife. Birdie. Almost an eagle, but it doesn't entirely hold up if you know the ending. There aren't that many little clues planted throughout, unlike some films of this type. And yes, I've been watching a lot of movies lately for some reason.
    • Range balls don't generally spin much, yes. I'd insist on a fitting with the same type of balls you use to play.
