  1. The way I see it, if you were a fan of Tiger before this, you still are. If you weren't a fan of his because of his personal life, then this only adds to the displeasure. People have drawn their opinions on him and this incident isn't going to change anyone's mind. I've always looked up to Tiger for the way he's played golf, but I'm not a fan of the way he's handled himself off the course. I think Tiger got mixed up with the wrong crowd there that changed him a bit in the mid-2000s. Guys like Jordan, Jeter, Barkley and others who lived that lifestyle of sleeping with every girl at every chance and partying non-stop. Like you said, it's no crime, but it didn't help him in the court of public opinion. And this doesn't help either. We'll just have to wait and see the facts. If it he was breathing just over a 0.8, people will judge him lightly, but if he was blowing over a 1.5 or doing some sort of drugs, then he's going to take a beating from the press.
  2. 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.
  3. Just saw his mugshot. Holy smokes. Looks of a trainwreck. His eyes have the look of someone who was drugged up.
  4. 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.
  5. Never a good thing when your winner is unheard of, shows no emotion and needs a translator after the round. Like I said, good for the kid. I'm sure he's a great kid, but for the audience, it was boredom and it defintely didn't do the game any good yesterday. Just no drama whatsoever down the stretch and was lacking major star power outside of Oosthuizen.
  6. Good win for the kid. Happy for him. A bit disappointed in the final round. Not a lot of excitement. Was hoping for some more drama. Just never happened. Good for Poulter, though, who should now be safe.
  7. Not too familiar with See Woo Kim. Does anyone know anything about this kid? Was he a prodigy growing up? He sure is putting on a show so far today. Unreal.
  8. I don't think so. I think Sergio or Oosthuizen will walk off with the win. I'm just hoping for an exciting finish kinda like 2015.
  9. The Players is not the tournament for that. Just look at DJ...never finished Top 25 at TPC and it's probably not happening this year, either. It's a quirky course. Every year with this tournament you get a lot of unfamiliar names sprinkled in with a few big ones.
  10. The Players Championship traditionally brings a lot of unfamiliar names on the leaderboard but the champions list is very impressive. Usually the cream rises to the top by the end of Sunday.
  11. Congrats to Dustin Johns...errr.....I mean Kevin Chappell. First win. Very deserving.
  12. I just can't see him coming back to golf after this. I know they say this is the one surgery that will be the "end all, cure all", but they said that about the last three as well. As much as I'd love to see him playing again, I've seen too much of him going out, wincing and then withdrawing. It's tough to watch. He should seriously just hang it up and enjoy his life with his family, hopefully pain-free. Best of luck to him.
  13. 13 was defintely the turning point of the tournament. It looked as if Rose was gonna walk off that green with a 4-shot lead and next thing you know it only stayed two. And then Sergio was able to tie it on 15. Crucial point in tournament for sure.
  14. Would be great stories if Rickie, Jordan or Sergio won.....which is why Justin Rose will likely walk off with the green jacket.
  15. Might be good for Charley. Only chance he has at winning is coming from behind and being out of the spotlight. Ask Smylie Kauffman.
