He was reported to have listed all of his affairs as part of his rehabilitation for sex addition in 2010. 

That’s not at all the same as “he admitted.“

A source privy to the requirements of his sex addiction rehabilitation leaked it to the press. If it was untrue it would be libel.

What? The press never says anything that isn’t true for fear of libel!? Lol…come on man.

What's recently? I think his last surgery was in April.

Didn't know about his April surgery. Recent enough since I only know about the original repair. 

Anyway, looking so much better.

“My ankle is fine. Where they fused my ankle, I have absolutely zero issue whatsoever,” Woods said Tuesday. “That pain is completely gone. It’s the other areas that have been compensated for.”

“But all the surrounding areas is where I had all my problems and I still do,” he said. “So you fix one, others have to become more hypermobile to get around it, and it can lead to some issues.”

Eventful  week for Tiger:

1) committed to playing in the Hero World Challenge

2) ex-girlfriend drops $30 million lawsuit.  Despite trying to get her NDA voided under a federal law that allows an NDA be voided if there is sexual abuse or harassment, now claims she never accused him of sexual abuse or harassment.

3) roof collapses at the venue being prepared for the TGL indoor golf league

4) son Charlie helped his high school golf team win a state tournament.

    • I'm waiting for someone to come up with a way that 125mph clubhead speed results in a dead reaction, but 124 or less and 126 or higher results in a fast reaction. Something like a ball with a fluid layer that you only get to if you swing faster than 124mph, but it's thin, so once you reach 126mph you are connecting with the layer inside that and it gets faster again. It's probably obvious by now that I am not a golf ball design expert 🙂 
    • I think it’s mostly the “soft” and spinny  alls that were popular more so a few years ago. Callaway SuperSoft springs to mind, though @cedrictheo might disagree. 🤣

    • Not sure if my logic is sound but I'm thinking a @ 4% rollback is not a big deal.  True, I like to brag about the super long drives I occasionally get but those are exceptions.   Assuming a typical Par-4 holes range from 240-490 yards.  The mid-point is @ 365 yards for a Par 4. Assume a non-elite golfer today has a typical drive of @ 235 on a 365 yard Par-4 hole they have @ 130 approach to center after drive.  Now let's assume this player has 10 yard gaps in his clubs and his 9 Iron is typically his 130 club.  Depending upon hazards, etc. around the green he may play a PW, 9 or 8 for that hole. Under new ball, the typical drive decreases to @ 226 leaving @ 139 into center.  Under same assumptions above the player may consider hitting his 9,8 or 7 iron. True, longer shots have higher error rates but how many of us get upset when we have to hit a 9 Iron instead of a PW?  or a 7 Iron vs a 8 Iron.   A longer hitter that goes 300 yards today loses @ 12 yards after a 4% rollback.  They go from 65 yards in to 77 yards on the approach.  Yes, longer, but maybe 1 club?  Or maybe a full swing vs 2/3rd swing on the same club? I understand placement of hazards also comes into play but is hitting my Driver to 1 foot short of the hazard for the shortest possible 2nd shot to clear that much easier than being 10-12 yards back?  It may take going for the green in 2 on a par-5 more difficult but that should be difficult.  Yes, the rollback has  an impact on us non-elite golfers as well as the elite golfers, but is it really all that bad for us? And from a different view, a non-elite golfer can work to more than offset the distance rollback.  Take lessons to strike the ball more consistently & better.  Do Speed training.  If we can just add 10% to our typical distance we will have more than offset the rollback and would be hitting longer than with the current ball.  An elite golfer already has a great swing & higher speed and thus it may be harder for them to overcome a rollback.  
    • Dang-it, you beat me to it 😛  I am kind of shocked by this. I wonder if there is a common thread in the type of golf ball. The conforming list of golf balls is around 1185 make and models (about 15 golf balls per page, and 79 pages). Maybe 30% of golf balls just suck. Yea, it might just tell us more about how much variance there is between golf balls that 30% of them are already 4-5% worse. Which probably makes sense.
