What think ye of Tiger ? March 23, 2010Posted by Rambling Man in Sports.

So, after all his admitted infidelities and sex addiction therapy and apologies and comebacks, what think ye of Tiger Woods – the greatest golfer the planet has ever seen?
Personally speaking, I was so disappointed in him when he cheated on his lovely wife and it was contrary to everything I thought Tiger Woods stood for – heretofore he had been, in my eyes, a model of a man and a sportsman. I had the pleasure of briefly meeting him a couple of times in my role as a player care marshall at the 2006 Ryder Cup …
So am I glad that Tiger is coming back to golf ? Hell yeah ! Golf is not as exciting a sport without him and the US Masters at Augusta would not be the same either. I think the golfing public can forgive him his infidelities – or at least separate them from golf – and he will once again become a crowd favourite. That’s what I think anyway – he’s too good a golfer not to rise back to the top of his profession.
On the other hand, I hope he has made some ammends with his wife. I am not sure whether they are back together and it’s none of our business in any case – but I wish them well … she sure would have to be the forgiving type.

South African, Trevor Immelman has just won the US Masters at Augusta, to become the first South African to win that competition since Gary Player in 1978. He shot a final round 73.
He wobbled a bit towards the end, putting his approach on the par 3 16th into the water, but held on to win by 3 from Tiger Woods.
Well done to him – it’s hard to lead from start to finish and he deserves it …
