Tiger Woods Is Human Afterall

November 30, 2009 - Al Stephenson
When you watch him on the golf course, you are amazed at how focused he is. Hitting great golf shot after great golf shot under some trying circumstances... He is, in my humble opinion, the best to ever play the game.

I'm talking about Tiger Woods of course. Many people do not like him for various reasons. He is too good. He is too famous. He is too rich. He has the wrong skin color. His wife is too good looking. You name it, the reasons are out there.

I on the other hand have always admired Tiger, again for a variety of reasons. The main reason is what he can do with a golf ball. I also like his demeanor. He is articulate, funny and seemingly honest. He is also a person who likes to guard his privacy and that has always been difficult for a person of his stature. That may be extremely difficult to do now.

He was in a car accident leaving his house (mansion) at 2:25 in the morning. His wife Elin reportedly used a driver (what else would you expect, a wedge would have been less appropriate) to knock out the back window of his SUV to get him out of the vehicle. He was treated and released at a local hospital and now the world wants to know all the sordid details.

It doesn't help that the National Enquirer recently ran a story that suggested he was having an affair with a New York woman. That helped fuel all the rumors as to what really happened last Friday morning.

He was confronted by his wife about the affair. They argued and he took off in a huff. Some reports suggested that the cuts on his lips were administered by Elin using the above noted driver.

Is it possible that Tiger is having an affair? I suppose. Is it possible that he had a fight with his wife and left angry? I suppose. Is it possible that Tiger Woods is human afterall? I would say of course.

The question that most people want to know is where was he going at that hour. We will probably never know the answer to that question. Tiger is going to try to keep that private. And you know what? I think he should.

What gives us the right to pry into another person's personal life? If he wants to tell us - fine. If he doesn't - that's perfectly OK too.

The view from my seat (not looking for a chance to snicker at Tiger's plight) suggests that we find something better to do with our time than to grill him for answers. Let Tiger's private life be just that.
