Look, Tiger Woods is THE ONLY MAN on this planet who has a shot at making history; that, in of itself is a tremendous draw!!! Personally, I love the guy for his drive and his determination. Remember, he did not grow up as a child of priviledge; he earned it! As far as I am concerned I want him to break all the records before his career is over....GO TIGER!

TIGER CHEERLEADERS!- Tiger Woods vs. Roger Federer who is the REAL KING of Majors? Tiger won his first major in 1997 at the Masters at the age of 21. Since then, 47 PGA Majors have been played and Tiger has won 14 of them. 14/47 Majors is a wining percentage of 29.7% Good! Roger won his first major in 2003 at Wimbledon also at the age of 21. Since then, 22 Majors have been played on the ATP Tour and Roger has won 13 of them. 13/22 Majors is wining percentage of 59% Awesome! Tiger is 4 majors away from the all time PGA record and Roger is 1 major away from the all time ATP Majors record. In 2009 watch Tiger try to win the U.S. Open for the 2nd year in a row. Afterwards, watch Tiger in New York watching Roger Federer try to win the U.S. Open for a record 6th year in a row and possibly tie or break the all time ATP Majors record. Finally TIGER CHEERLEADERS did you get those POM POMS free from NIKE?

He didn't exactly grow up on food stamps either. As a retired Army officer with 27 years, I know they wern't starving on Earl's retirement pay.

Nobody said he grew up on food stamps BUT there is a huge difference between professional golfers who grew up in affluent communities vs. Compton! His parents did a tremendous job raising him and giving him a such a strong sense of values, commitment and achievement. No parent could want more! So, don't go looking for cracks just appreciate the fact that you are living on the planet while he is doing his thing!

I think he will go down as probably the best golfer talent wise in history...talent wise that is...his attitude is appalling and so is his temper. And thats why I dont particularly care for him as a golfer.
