Darwinism is no excuse for cheating.  Bad argument.  When you get married you make a conscious commitment. Again,  if you never grew out of a need for strange,  then why get married?  Why have ki

This is all good news for anyone who doesn't enjoy the suffering of others.  I'm glad his story turned out to be true.  I wonder if all the blowhard assholes (I'm looking at you, Stephen A. Smith) wil

If this is true, then Tiger may have finally done something I can't defend.  C'mon man, Elin didn't take so much of your money that you can't afford an Uber.

Booked at 7:18 released at 10:50.

I thought I remembered an attorney buddy of mine telling me that FL law required an 8 hour period of "observation" before any DUI suspect could be released, though I guess it could be jurisdiction specific.

He was taken into custody at 3:00AM, that probably counts as time under observation.

That would probably explain it.

I will never understand celebrities like Tiger driving under the influence, have a driver on payroll or just grab an uber!

Totally agree - just stupid and unnecessary.

Will be curious to see the substance under which he was influenced - alcohol or painkillers... not that either is acceptable but wondering if this unfolds even further.

That booking photo is proof a picture is worth a thousand words. Looks like it was one hell of a night!

I don't understand why celebrities do this either but then again, who here can say they've never made a bad decision while under the influence? I'm sure there are more than one or two people here who had a few too many, only to wake up next to a swamp donkey in the morning.

I think as we got older and Uber emerged, these kind of mistakes are vere rare for most thinking adults in 2017.

That might explain why he didn't have enough sense to negotiate a ride home.

This is what happens when he doesn't have a caddie to recommend a driver.

One thing I think we can all agree on.....what Tiger Woods did on the course was something special. What Tiger Woods has done off the course has been something sad. He was a role model on the course, but definitely off.

That being said, DUI's happen to a lot of people and athletes. While what he did with his marriage wasn't "a crime" that got him arrested, it was more devastating than this DUI.

I guess his crooked driving got him in trouble again. :-P

But seriously, DUI is no joke. Don't drink and drive.

    • You’re right. @onthehunt526 didn’t realize how bad the lie was (see above where he quoted the app indicating “first cut” when it wasn’t), so I think that’s where he was going with that statement. I mean, he’s right, if the lie wasn’t as bad as he thought. 
    • Day 3: Did more of the same stuff working on backswing priority piece, with LVP camera. Bought a net that’s supposed to go up/down easy, and measured my mat to cut it down to more portable strips for new practice area. 
    • You may as well say that not trying to carry a ball 370m over water on a par 5 isn't going to win you the tournament if you need eagle to win. Are you seriously suggesting that Oosthuizen does not realise that 3 is better than 4 and that  4 doesn't win? So...in a press conference you would ask him why he laid up and he'd say "I had a better chance of holing out from 80 yards than making a putt like I did on Saturday"? Come on. There is no hypothetical scenario here. He did all he could do. 
    • I forgot how he reacted to the eventual birdie.  Probably the most disappointed "I just made a birdie on the 72nd hole of the U.S. Open" ever.
    • Yeah, I agree. He would’ve went for it  if it was in the first cut, sitting up, or in the fairway—no question. If you put it in the drink from there, at least you went with the right shot under the circumstances and tried to win the tournament. He probably doesn’t eagle though because it would’ve been so hard to stop the ball on that green. But then again, maybe he makes the Tiger putt from the back of the green (not the “expect anything different” putt).
