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.

    • @alexschoI would suggest a UW to fill the gap between the PW and SW. If you're a high handicap, I'm not sure you need a 58 degree wedge.  Your priority on short game shots isn't "get it close" (but that's great if you can), but rather "get the ball on the green;  within spots on the green, priority is to spots close to the hole."  But I wouldn't just now use a club that many high handicappers usage tends to risk leaving themselves with yet another short game shot.
    • Good luck.  Make sure you know the rules, of course;  people can and do get casual with the rules during non-tournament play.  Make sure you know what local rules are in effect, too;  you don't want to Jerry Rice yourself out of a tournament if, for example, laser range finders aren't allowed but you use one. 
    • 87 today at my home course.  Hit 4 GIR:  holes 1, 17, and 18, but only one in between (#8, a 4-wood into the wind to about 15', had a tap-in par on that one).
    • Day 151.  Tournament at my home course today.  I shot an 87 with 4 GIR and 7 near-GIR.  Now that I write that out, I feel my long game was better than that stat line today, but I guess not.  I did some full swing practice before the round, outdoors at the range, checking my backswing length as per my past month or so of work.
    • Secured a par at my home course's hole #17 today.  I am not happy with how long it took me to get better than bogey on it.  I hit a poor tee shot, a good recovery punch shot, then a sweeping hook 6-iron to the green.  I correctly read that the lie and setup would hook, aimed well left of the green, and swung.  Big hook, ended on the left side of the green, 15' from the pin, and I darn near made the birdie putt too. Speaking of which, I gave a par at #s 7 and 9 a good run today too.  Still no birdies at my home course this year! 😞
