    You're comparing someone who slept around on his wife to someone who murdered his wife?

    Allegedly... 

    point is we have plenty of other golfers grinding it out, perhaps better people,  but people want to root for someone that had a dui, ruined his family, etc..  It’s interesting why he gets their support vs ton of other golfers with no issues.  And people are acting like it all happened to him, but he made it happen. All were his decisions.  I guess we should forget about all these issues and hope he wins vs the others...

    Also OJs wife was cheating on him, so it’s similar in some ways

    Holy mackerel this thread took a jog to the left. 
    People use statistics the way a drunk uses a street light, for support rather than illumination.

    Predictable responses, from the usual suspects.
    The guy made some huge mistakes and seems to have come to grips with his failures, besides overcoming potentially career-ending health issues.
    Good for him, good for golf.

    I root for other players too. Many of the younger players. I just like to see someone who has made errors in his life turn it around and start doing the right thing. What is wrong with that? Why must he be condemned for the rest of his life? Again, if you have never made any mistakes then continue to judge.

    I saw the Tiger story on the local news last night.  It looked like hundreds and hundreds of 14 year old white boys squealing and hooting for Woods as he walked down the course.  

    Good for him.

    FishinFL has some deep seated issues.
    Glad he's here to offer his perspective.

    It must be nice to be perfect and be able to judge other people. Congratulations.
    It’s not all that hard to NOT do the things he has done...
    Fishinfl has a god complex.  Need to forgive

    I don't think anyone would begin to say that his troubles weren't his fault. They are all his fault. What people are recognizing is that he made himself a better person by overcoming his faults.

    I mean I've never done anything wrong so I guess that makes it ok for me do judge everyone else....

    Golf is better when Tiger is on the leaderboard. Yesterday was fun to watch.

    Ok fair enough good point

    how do you decide who to root for again? Say the following used to play golf, but had their issues, but are playing again.  Who do you pick?

    bill Cosby 
    Mark David Chapman
    Kim Jong Un
    Louis CK
    Jaylon Kerley - google it
    any villian from Scooby Doo

    That is simple.

    The first one that has a press conference to admit he made a mistake and apologized to friends and family on camera for the whole world to see. Then they spend 5 years building their life and reputation back to where people could trust and root for them again.

    Anything else?

    Filled with a man dealing with debilitating back pain and a complete RECOVERY.

    And I am not even a christer, and I forgive the man his transgressions.

    I don't watch golf very often, in fact almost never but, I remember once when Tiger was on top of his game he had a bad lye or lay or what ever, the ball was on the edge of the sand and he had one foot in the sand and one on the grass, the one in the sand was easily a foot and a half lower and he made this chop shot and the ball shot over to the green and ended up a couple feet from the pin. I went, Dauum.

    LOL.  If there's one thing most christers DO NOT do, it's forgive.  Or listen to what Jesus said. In any way, shape or form. except when it suits them.


    Oh, and fish - my money's on Louis CK.  What he did wasn't even bad.  Just a little joke on the womens. I'm sure they loved the attention at the time.

    I remember the time I played golf and had a bad lay. I took my time and timed it perfect and let it go. It went through the wind mill with no problem and in the hole for 1 under par.

    I have a tough time getting the ball into the elephant trunk. Windmill, not so much.
