Why does anyone have to live up to your expectations or anyone else's for that matter? Maybe I had expectations for him to get rich, get married to a hot wife and have women on the side....if so he exceeded mine....

Because we live in a society.  As I said before, my expectation is simply that he (and everyone else) will obey the law, not put others at unnecessary risk, and generally conform to societal norms.  You don't?

Ok that is reasonable. I guess I was talking about other issues that are personal morality based.

I know, right?!  Where does something like that even come from?!

Looks like TMZ screwed us all over again with bad reporting. No mention of LA at all in the dash cam video. Tiger sounds totally coherent and not wasted. He says he knows he's in Jupiter. Totally cooperative.

The road is not wide there. There's just a bike lane. Tough to get much further off the road without getting on the sidewalk.

David, you've disliked (hated?) Tiger since long before this DUI thing. So "society" really doesn't have much to do with the previous stuff.

The field sobriety test shows definitely that he's disoriented to some extent. As to why that is, I think I've learned my lesson at this point to wait and see.

I'm not sure what you mean.  I've never hidden the fact that I don't like Tiger.  That has nothing to do with this particular situation though.

You missed the point. But it's not worth getting into, so…

Yes, it's dangerous, but nowhere near the things I've seen that are a common occurrence. People park on the shoulder of a major highway with little buffer all the time. If I recall correctly, the report said he had his blinkers on.

Watched Golf Channel coverage that aired portions of Tiger's arrest.  It is such a sad commentary on our society that this is even aired and is getting this kind of coverage.  What he did was wrong, but it is just as wrong for the Florida Police to allow their videos to be released to the media.  Give the guy a break.

Well played!

I have to agree it sucks that video is released.  

My only comment at this point relates to his statement.

He said something like I understand the severity of my actions.  Think about that a minute.  It's an admission of guilt of sorts.  If he said I took my meds as directed by my physician and had an unexpected reaction that's different.

I dunno maybe someone mentioned this but I have not read the whole thread.  Food for thought.

Yep.  I believe Tiger is not well liked around there. Jmo

I get what you guys are saying about not releasing the video, but in this case, it kinda makes sense. The video contradicts much of what TMZ and others reported, so in that sense, the video is a good thing. Otherwise, we'd be left with the image of a drooling Tiger Woods calling a cop a pig and then angrily demanding directions to the Pacific Coast Highway or he'll give everyone a knuckle sandwich.

Decent point,  but imo innocent until proven guilty holds and evidence should be presented to courts not ESPN.

Fair enough, just playing devil's advocate.

    • I think most people "think" they hit it farther than they do until some actual measurements are done. They really aren't fooling anyone but themselves. Where the ball lands won't lie to anyone. I am realistic about my distances because that is important to me in order to play a quality game. I find on average that most hit it around 25 to even on occasion 50 yds less than they realize. I would state that most are around 15-25 less.
    • He prolly thought it wasn't fair the ball was in a sandy depression so he must have thought he needed to level the playing field.. I mean literally. 
    • Today’s the 10th, hence Rule 10.  A look at two aspects of Rule 10 - Advice and Caddies (Don’t skip the Caddies portion because it’s details pertain to our partners in Four-Ball.) Rule 10 - Preparing for and Making a Stroke; Advice and Help; Caddies Purpose of Rule: Rule 10 covers how to prepare for and make a stroke, including advice and other help the player may get from others (including partners and caddies). The underlying principle is that golf is a game of skill and personal challenge. 10.1 Making a Stroke, Purpose of Rule: Rule 10.1 covers how to make a stroke and several acts that are prohibited in doing so. A stroke is made by fairly striking at a ball with the head of a club. The fundamental challenge is to direct and control the movement of the entire club by freely swinging the club without anchoring it. (And, no. Bernhard Langer is not anchoring; the R&A and USGA have confirmed it several times.) 10.2 Advice and Other Help, Purpose of Rule: A fundamental challenge for the player is deciding the strategy and tactics for his or her play. So there are limits to the advice and other help the player may get during a round. Definition of Advice: Any verbal comment or action that is intended to influence a player in choosing a club, making a stroke, or deciding how to play during a hole or round. But advice does not include public information, such as, the location of things on the course such as the hole, the putting green, the fairway, penalty areas, bunkers, or another player’s ball, the distance from one point to another, or the Rules. Two Interpretations regarding Advice: Advice/1 – Verbal Comments or Actions That Are Advice Examples of when comments or actions are considered advice and are not allowed include: A player makes a statement regarding club selection that was intended to be overheard by another player who had a similar stroke. In individual stroke play, Player A, who has just holed out on the 7th hole, demonstrates to Player B, whose ball was just off the putting green, how to make the next stroke. Because Player B has not completed the hole, Player A gets the penalty on the 7th hole. But, if both Player A and Player B had completed the 7th hole, Player A gets the penalty on the 8th hole. A player’s ball is lying badly and the player is deliberating what action to take. Another player comments, “You have no shot at all. If I were you, I would decide to take unplayable ball relief.” This comment is advice because it could have influenced the player in deciding how to play during a hole. While a player is setting up to hit his or her shot over a large penalty area filled with water, another player in the group comments, “You know the wind is in your face and it’s 250 yards to carry that water?” Advice/2 – Verbal Comments or Actions That Are Not Advice Examples of comments or actions that are not advice include: During play of the 6th hole, a player asks another player what club he or she used on the 4th hole that is a par-3 of similar length. A player makes a second stroke that lands on the putting green. Another player does likewise. The first player then asks the second player what club was used for the second stroke. After making a stroke, a player says, “I should have used a 5-iron” to another player in the group that has yet to play onto the green, but not intending to influence his or her play. A player looks into another player’s bag to determine which club he or she used for the last stroke without touching or moving anything. While lining up a putt, a player mistakenly seeks advice from another player’s caddie, believing that caddie to be the player’s caddie. The player immediately realizes the mistake and tells the other caddie not to answer. 10.3 Caddies, Purpose of Rule: The player may have a caddie to carry the player’s clubs and give advice and other help during the round, but there are limits to what the caddie is allowed to do. The player is responsible for the caddie’s actions during the round and will get a penalty if the caddie breaches the Rules. NB In forms of play such as Four-Ball involving partners, a player's partner and the partner's caddie may take the same actions (with the same limitations) as the player's caddie may take under Rules 10.2.

    • This is one place I would not complain about a 5+ hour round. Selfishly, I would prefer it...😊
    • IMO no. He just didn’t think anyone was watching.
