Tiger Woods; How did it go so wrong?!?

I have admit, it was fascinating to see Tiger Woods fall from grace and watch him try to answer all of those embarrassing questions about his marital indiscretions, but now is borderline ridiculous!

Injuries derailed Tiger’s pursuit of Jack Nicklaus’ record for most PGA wins and now a DUI in his home state of Florida has thrown him back into the negative spotlight once again.

Holy Cow!

I’ve not seen a professional athlete’s reputation crash and burn like this, since Pete Rose!

For the longest time Tiger Woods would just put the Fear of God on the rest of the field whenever he played, like a young Mike Tyson use to do when he built a reputation of leaving an assembly line like trail of knockout victims along his path.

All of his opponents would look defeated even before the first tee.

Tiger was invincible. Then it all came crashing down on him.

His personal life and his game.

Tiger has in the past justify his bad judgment by saying that after all he is human like any one of us and like any one of us he has made some bad decisions,

“…This (whole) situation is my fault, and it’s obviously embarrassing to my family and me. I’m human and I’m not perfect…”, Tiger Woods

Even if you’re a casual Golf fan – like myself – you’d to admire how far Tiger had come.

The man free-fell from somewhere beyond pass Celebrity Mountain.

A fall like that killed Pete Rose’s popularity, left Joe Paterno’s legacy in ruins and reduced Mike Tyson into cameo appearances in the movies.

Tiger Woods’ Golf Game did not come out unscathed from the previous scandal, honestly…How could it?

Now this!

Money, fame, family and a beautiful wife were all his once, but he messed up the whole thing anyway.

Other golfers, reporters and just about everybody else in the world always had accused Tiger for years of being almost a robotic-like human.

As it turns out Tiger – just as he claimed once before – is a regular guy like anyone of us, but if Tiger thinks that he was hammered publicly before…
