It was hard for some people to see what happened last weekend.
It was hard for them because they were proven wrong.
It was hard because they had to swallow words many of them had so proudly uttered for the past two years in sentences like: ‘Tiger Woods is done.” or “Tiger Woods will never win again.”
Well those prognostications were proven the be false and while it did take 30 months, Tiger roared to victory again by winning the Bay Hill Invitational by five strokes and it typical Tiger-dominating fashion.
I just love how people are so quick to count someone out. It seems like we as a society don’t like to see people, rich or otherwise, succeed anymore and revel when they fail.
And yes Tiger had some failures in his personal life and it in turn effected his professional life. He cheated on his wife, lost custody of his children and lost his mojo because of it for a long time because of it.
But that was something that he as a man had to endure. It was his life and trouble he certainly brought on himself.
I find it funny that, again, many of us are ready to kick someone when they are down, and particularly when they are famous celebrities.
But through all that never did I think Tiger was never going to win a golf tournament again and certainly never judged him as less as a person because of his transgressions, because afterall he’s not perfect. Seriously, who is.
All I ever wanted from Tiger was to see him dominate a golf course like no one ever has. All I ever want from Tiger is that he makes the field so nervous that most of them choke and fall by the wayside.
All I ever want from Tiger are the performances like the one he had this past weekend in winning his first tournament in 30 months. Watching Tiger win never gets boring.
