If he grossed 1$ billion it would have to be reduced by a significant amount of business & professional expenses and of course taxes.

If his divorce was in PA, Elin would be entitled to a property settlement, child support and possibly alimony. Don't know of all of these items were covered in a prenup.

Tiger Woods is both a business and a celebrity so the property settlement could include his trademarked name and his celebrity value. The prenup probably covers these things.

I hope 2011 turns out to be a record breaking year for him. I enjoy watching him play golf.

Child support isn't part of divorce. It's often related, but it's not part of divorce. Additionally, I believe that if the mother and father both have enough money to reasonably care for the children, child support isn't even awarded.

Elin won't get alimony because Tiger's choosing the "lump sum" payment (and she's agreed to it), likely in exchange for her silence. Tiger probably COULD have enforced the pre-nup BUT it perhaps might not have included a gag order to prevent Elin from talking. Mostly speculation, except the part about child care not being part of a divorce. I'm pretty sure that's correct - it's still handled by family law courts and judges, but it's a "custody/support" issue, not a "divorce" issue.

I hope tiger raises a little tiger or tigress, and they go on tour. But to do that, he will have to sacrifice his game. I think he will.

I think that'd be great too. But he wouldn't have to sacrafice his game completely. He could have a kid when he turns 40 or sooner if he just wants Jack's record.

No, they said he'd MADE $1B. Income. If you have all of the money you've ever made, raise your hand...

Marked to market investments a big part. Bad development deals......you name it. Overhead. All of the above.

We just went through a big arse purge of the financial world. If you had money and were investing in some fashion you probably have less today. That includes most the big boys. Pretty much worse off if you had your hand in development. Heck a prominent partner of his almost went under the United Arab Emirates.

Anyone see the Elin Woods article in People? I guess there wasn't a gag order...

Personally I commend her for her handling of the situation. I don't understand how Tiger could demonstrate such little care for his wife and kids for such an extended period of time. He clearly isn't capable of caring about anyone but himself. I know that a lot of people want to see him return to form. Personally I want to see him never win again and fade into obscurity. I just cannot root for someone with morals that different from my own.

Ive sorta been where tiger is. Ive cheated on a longtime girlfriend myself. Its not so much lack of care or respect for the other woman, its just an impulse that can be difficult to resist. And im just a normal dude and not a mega star that has woman throwing themselves at me daily. Im not defending the action, because it is embarrassing and degrading to the woman, but often we don't think about these things when the booty is involved.

this is probably the most honest quote i have seen on these forums with regards to the tiger situation.

I commend the honesty, man. Your situation is different in that you weren't married and didn't have kids (at least not that you mentioned).

I'm going to tread lightly here because I don't want to seem like I am attacking you as a person, but Tiger was cheating on his wife for years with a variety of different skanks. It's not like there was one other woman that he fell in love with or something. It's also not like it was a one time thing. Either of those scenarios would be far more forgivable in my mind than being a serial skankmaster behind your wife and kids' backs. Apparently this impulse was pretty strong for Tiger because it went on for years and only stopped when he got caught. He had plenty of time to think about what he was doing.

The media isn't going to let him focus on golf, all they want to know is if he's still in love with Elin?? who cares, if they reconcile, so be it.

Not a day went by that I didn't think about my kids after I got divorced. I messed up, got caught, and paid the price. I don't condone Tiger's actions, but infidelity happens all the time, and not only guys cheat... women do it tooooo!!!

Just in case the haters want to keep flaming Tiger, I remember when NASCAR's Jeff Gordon was blamed for infidelity by his wife and later divorced. Racing's golden boy could do no wrong...

This was almost certainly agreed within the terms of the agreed gag order. There was a mounting media pressure for some public comment from Elin and within that she had to express disappointment and some anger, so the lawyers probably agreed a limited form of words to release that pressure, but a firm lid on the matter thereafter.

Yup, the big head makes the money and the little head spends it.

Call me crazy, but he will be hot again sometimes soon. Now he can get back to his routine, which is practice, plays in certain tournaments, and of course, get laid wherever he goes. In that order, he will win tournaments like he did back in the days.

LOL, you are crazy---do you feel better now?

It must be a lot easier to swing on plane when you're 300 million (or whatever) lighter. Really motivates me to lose that 20 pounds I've been lugging around. And you see today- Tiger went low (and who knows how low, after his round - he's a single man again!).

Tiger had his world crumbled and it's hard to come back from that. The worst thing was he was deceiving people not just his wife about being a family guy but at the end of the day, it's not a crime to cheat and we watch him as fans because he's a virtuoso at what he does.
It's easy to be critical of someone but we're not in their shoes and don't have to face the endless temptations that celebrity brings.

It has to be said - Tiger's second 27 holes in the Barclays were rubbish, after a pretty strong first 27.

Is it because of the divorce? Obviously, it will have some kind of bearing but, personally, I think it's more to do with the massive vertical movement of his head and shoulders during his swing. When he cuts that out - or even reduces it - his scores improve, as we saw on day one and the first half of day two. When it reappears, it's shocking. A divot off the tee with a three wood (1st hole, Round 3)? There is no way anyone can tell me that's good, normal, to be expected, a symptom of swing adjustment or because of his divorce. It is, quite simply, an absolutely crap golf swing.

imho, natch!

But if in doubt, compare it with the swing of the guy currently 9 shots ahead of him...

Just the 18 in the middle there, actually. He was -3 on the back nine yesterday.

By nines, he was: -4 -2 -2 +4 +4 -3. Just that 18-hole stretch is bad. He plays those even par instead of +8 and he's one back at -11. That's not to justify anything. He knows as do I that it's 72 holes and they all count. But it's odd that he's had such a bad 18-hole stretch but has otherwise been okay. It's odd too that one half came at the end of the round and the other half at the start of the round (75% at the first hole).

I don't know how to say this otherwise, but you're wrong. Not an opinion, a fact. The vertical movement of his head is

not a swing fault .

Hey, if you don't take the occasional divot with your 3W, you're not swinging it properly.

    • An 88 today. Horrible putting. Missed 6 straight par putts from inside 7 feet. I can’t even say well I made a long one that maybe I shouldn’t have. Just plain bad putting. To top it off triple on 18. Ugh. 
    • She deserved at least a sniff of your beer for requiring you to play from the tips and commandeering the cart!  Sounds like a good kid.
    • Had a nice time today golfing with my Granddaughter. We played 9 holes on "her home course" .  She was a bit down in the dumps because she didn't qualify for Monday's varsity tournament. We talked about her best golf days were still a head of her. Freshman envy I guess.  On the first tee she asked "so what are we playing for?" I told her a pitcher of beer, figuring I would destroy her mental prowess right off the bat. "You're on" was her reply. Now my mental game was taking a double take. I've been out of highschool for quite a while, but I'm pretty sure 13 year old, highschool fresh are not into beer yet. She told me she needed a stroke a hole, and that she would be playing from the women's tee, and that I would be playing from the tips.  Now I am really thinking. This time last month this young lady didn't know very much about golf. Yeah, a few long swing lessons with the course pro, and some short game stuff from me, some months ago. Trying to keep my competitive face on, I was.  Oh yeah, that she would be driving the cart......huh? Long story short she netted a 44, while grossing a 53. I think I was conned out of my own hdcp, but still won with a 41.  I was pleasently surprised at her game. I don't what youngsters her age shoot for good scores. I thought something in the 60s would have been decent. I asked her how she missed qualifying for Monday's tournament? She said she scored 51, and needed a 48.  As we were heading off the course, she told me I was going to have to wait on that pitcher of beer. For about 7.5 years. A little personal relief on my part. However, she was up for an ice cream, and soda. My treat.  What can I say. She now owns me.       
    • 86 (+15) on a 5000 yard course. My best here is 84. I really need to learn to control my emotions when I face slow players ahead of me. Today it came on hole 13. Waited for another single (walking as was I) to get out of range. Talked to him at the next tee box to see if he had called the rangers about a 4ball that wasnt letting singles play through. He had another single in front of them. Neither of them wanted to join up which didn't make sense. Had the first 12 holes done in 65 minutes, then it took 80-90 minutes fot the last 6 holes. I know that is normal pace, but it is more than twice as slow as I had been going. I'm glad I kept my head in the game enough to finish the round without killing my score
    • I have the Smart Sole S AND a Callaway 58 C-grind 8 bounce. Yes I know they're both 58. And yes I use both of them. The SS S for deep rough and soft sand, and the Callaway for hard pan, tight lies, and firm sand. All of which exist on the same course. I don't carry a FW so I have room in my bag.
