This week the top PGA tour players are competing in the Chevron World Challenge in Thousand Oaks, California. Many of the top players in the world are competing, but one name you will not find on the top of the leader board is Tiger Woods. Tiger has got himself into a little dilemma which will need some time for healing.
On November 22, 2009, Tiger struck a fire hydrant and a neighbor’s tree around 2:30 am Friday morning. There was no alcohol or drugs involved in the wreck, and there were minor injuries. The accident was a big deal to the media, but the fact that he was not answering questions made it even bigger. News began to spread and the world now knows that Tiger Woods was having an affair with multiple women. It is sad and disheartening to know that one of the worlds best athletes would act in such a terrible manner. Tiger is a role model to so many aspiring golfers including myself.
One question I have been asking my peers since the accident is: What will this do to golf? When you mention the game of golf, the first thing that comes to mind is Tiger Woods. He has absolutely dominated the game and has never been involved with the law. He had one slip-up and now the media is bombarding him with questions. How long do you think it will take for the world to forgive Tiger for his actions? Currently Tiger is working on keeping his family together and paying the price for his wrongful actions.
