For some reason, his life trajectory reminds me a bit of George Michael. Success at a cost of psychological problems not faced up to earlier, leading to erratic and risky behaviours in 40s. Who'd be a rich, talented superstar, eh?

 

Can we come up with a better, and likely more accurate, subtitle than 'golfer' please? All kinds of puns available for this particular pussy hound.

"Not out of the woods yet"

Well, I do think that he is a "spent" person, there's no substance left for him to get it together. And a further decline of his life after his professional career is inevitable, like Boris Becker here in Germany, or Björn Borg, or Matti Nykänen. The open question to me is whether he is going to appear on Reality TV within the next 10 years.

Depends how much money he needs.

Given Woods' history, it was disappointing to hear the sheriff say in his press conference that blood would not be taken for toxicology.  Guess cars just roll themselves violently, in California, when a celebrity is behind the wheel.  This actually speaks to why this thread may have some legitimacy: everyone enables him.  When he destroyed his own car in Florida while all pilled up and was subsequently arrested the sports media was quick to let bygones be bygones as soon as his PR team released a form-letter apology.  Do not recall anything resembling real apology, for his actions, ever crossing his lips.  Nobody in the golf world held him accountable for completely blowing off Arnold Palmer's memorial service after he spent the days before getting busted up at the Ryder Cup.  Hell, you're not even allowed to ask about that.  The protective PR bubble in which he's been allowed to live has been his downfall.

Aye, if only he'd take the train like Gazza once in a while, and go among his people...
