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

I really don't know what to say. Hard to feel sorry for someone who has everything. He has been looking aged lately and with age your ability to manage alcohol diminishes. It is careless but I really have no room to talk because I have had times when I was younger that were suspect. He is human and we make poor choices sometimes. He will suffer the consequences just like everyone else.

His lawyers will give him a lot of help beating this. That, or at least a lessor charge. The arresting office better hope he has a 100% perfect report.

Just saw his mugshot. Holy smokes. Looks of a trainwreck. His eyes have the look of someone who was drugged up. 

Not a flattering pic, to be sure. I just don't get why he'd put himself behind the wheel in that condition. Why no driver? If he was at a party, what sort of friends let him leave by himself?

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

I don't know anyone who looks good at 7am after being up all night, regardless if there were any drugs involved (legal or illegal).  Whether it's an all nighter for work, or an all nighter for other reasons, a picture is not going to be flattering.

If some of the reports circulating in the gutter press are actually true - 3am, all over the road, reeking of booze - it might be better from a reputation standpoint to just appear contrite and take the rap, rather than having one of those self-proclaimed "aggressive" DUI attorneys start submitting motions to view the arresting officer's personnel file, etc, etc...

It seems that Florida does allow plea bargaining DUI cases down to "wet reckless," provided the BAC is <1.5

I am surprised he is drinking that much with the medication(s) he is, probably, taking - postop.

They step up drunk driving patrols on holiday weekends. Some places have checkpoints. Woods got caught. I know this is the Internet where everyone is an angel, always follows the RoG to the letter, comes to a complete stop at every stop sign, never drives 5 mph over the speed limit, and hits their drivers 280 yds carry, but how many of us have driven under the influence and were not caught?

I'm betting it's prescription painkillers and he didn't realize how out of it he really was. Insomnia after surgery is normal. Painkillers after back surgery is normal. 

 

I'm in no way defending what he did, but I know after I suffered 3rd degree burns I drove on painkillers after I could get around again too, and had no idea what a risk I was taking, because I was taking them as prescribed. After a week or so, I realized when I suddenly got really tired driving. Then stopped until I was off painkillers about a month later.

Right. Nobody looks good in a mug shot even if it's in the afternoon, let alone at 7am after not going to bed.

I'm sure a lot of us have driven a bit buzzed at some point, but not many of us have had wives take irons to our car for cheating with a million different girls. Point is, like I said before, Tiger's decisions off the course have been very poor, and this is just another example of that. He's far from a role model off the course. Great role model on the course as far as his play goes before the age of 37, terrible off.

Let alone in their driver's license photo.

Yeah. And they re-take those if you ask (ours do, anyway), and you can prep for them.

He had/has vices. What do you expect from one of the most famous athletes in the world? Regardless of sport. I played university hockey here in Canada. Athletes get inflated ego's, we womanized and partied and cheated on gf's for years, we just weren't superstars, and the time passed, we had to grow up. Tiger could have his pick of millions of women, so he did. I don't hold that against him, he committed no crime. People around him inflated his ego to the point he held godlike status, it was a long fall from grace, but I don't hold his personal life against him, and never did.  But DUI, that's far worse in my eyes.

I was listening to the PGA station on Sirius earlier. David Armitage said something interesting: ..."it may be time to start viewing Woods' as an underachiever."

    • I couldn't agree more. We had a Callaway fitting day at the club last week and I tried out new drivers. Went through all the bells and whistles and came to the conclusion that the Epic Flash I hit now with a Hzrdus Yellow shaft....goes further than the new Epics with the stock shaft. I actually hit the new Epic Max further with my 3 year old shaft.  I thought that was kinda funny. I guess I'm not getting the most out of my wedges, mine are at least 7-8 year old Clevelands. I suppose I need to upgrade. 
    • I suck, but I won $30 off my buddies so successful day I guess. I struck the ball really well all day but I had trouble finding fairways (5/14 just 1/7 on the front) this led to a ton of tree trouble that I didn't do a good job of managing. Had 10 GIR but only 2 birdies should have had more I had probably 6 looks under 8' and a few more under 15' but had some yippy strokes and didn't make much of anything all day. I was 0/7! on par saving putts my short game was pretty awful.   
    • Haven't decided if I'm going to let it count yet, but I got birdies on 1, 7 (definitely not counting this one as it was on a provisional green and played a lot shorter than normal) and 13 on my homecourse on Saturday. It was from the the red tees. I'll let it count, but with red number for now. Will hopefully be replaced with black/yellow numbers later this summer.  Missed a 12 feet eagle-putt on 1 (460 yard par 5) and sunk a 2 feet tap-in birdie on 13 (350 yard par 4) 
    • I'm with you. I pretty much don't think about it while hitting my full shots. But I always seem think about it when I'm lining up a birdie putt. I'm like "Ooo, this would be a nice one to cross off." or sometimes I just remember that I've already got this one.  The last two times I've played I've had reasonably good chances at birdie on number 7. Which at my course is a 170 +/- 10 or so par 3 over water. It's a tough hole because it's back in the corner or the golf property and kind of secluded from the wind. That is until your ball gets up in the air. Anyway, I've never birdied it. I've had two shots at it lately with putts of around 7-8 feet. 
    • Played 18 holes from the yellows (6210 yards, par 72, rating 72,7, slope 147) and was all over the place.  Shot 92 and had some excellent stretches of holes and some really bad ones. On holes 9 to 14 i made 5 pars and 1 double, only hitting 2 fairways, 1 green and only using 8 putts on that 6 hole stretch. It was looking like a good mid 80s round till after hole 15. +8 on the last 3 holes of the day is just a very, very sad way to end a round.   Shot of the day was my tee shot on hole 4, a 192 yard par 3. With a slight breeze in the back I hit a 7i to 8 feet past the hole. It landed a foot past the hole and it looked so good I stopped breathing while the ball was in the air. Missed the birdieputt, but still a great hole.  4/13 fairways, 2/18 greens! and 30! putts. A strange round of golf.
