Tiger Woods doesn't live on Mount Olympus anymore.
Tiger Woods isn't TIGER WOODS! today and never will be again. Woods wasn't the faithful family man that he and his management handlers portrayed him to be, and he isn't the golfer he was eleven years ago when he won the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach by 15 strokes and later completed the Tiger Slam. Woods surrendered the universal personal and professional respect he enjoyed---but didn't always appreciate---the moment he crashed his vehicle into a tree Thanksgiving Weekend 2009.
Woods isn't invincible on the golf course now or even the tournament favorite on Thursdays. His fellow tour competitors aren't intimidated by him and no one shows him the worshipful deference that he once thought himself entitled to. Woods is just another Top 20 golfer who may or may not be in contention on any given Sunday, and therefore he needs a new nickname.
Call him Rick or Ellie or Cheetah, but don't call this mere mortal TIGER---he's declawed and toothless. Tiger Woods doesn't live on Mount Olympus anymore.
