Tiger work ethic

Not only did he come back from the controversy, he’s had 5 back operations to recover from at the age of 42.  Not just recover from, but to compete at the highest level in his sport and win.  You don’t do that with out hard work. Earlier his swing speed was clocked at 129 mph. Highest on the tour. Welcome back Tiger.  The crowd on 18 was heart warming.

He is a slime bag who cheated on his wife multiple times, and let down his wife and his kids.  Arrogant SOB on top of it.

I would much rather root for and watch other golfers that are good guys, great family men, and work their tails off.

Screw Tiger.  He will never win another major.  Karma, baby...

The guy fucked up, who here hasn’t? We just aren’t lucky enough to have our mistakes plastered all over the news. I always respected his game and talent, but I wasn’t a fan back when he totally dominated the sport, but I am now. I hope he wins enough majors to put to rest any doubt he was the greatest.

It’s good to see a guy crawl back out of the hole, even if he dug it himself.

I've never cheated on my wife with a dozen different women or drove intoxicated multiple times.  I get that people can and will act differently when in the public light, but these are transgressions most people don't do, or if they do they are rightfully vilified for them. 

Tiger Woods is still a fabulously rich man who gets to play a sport and receive the adulation of millions of fans as a result.  That doesn't mean he can't also be a pretty shitty guy to those around him.

That’s just the tip of the iceberg with this asshole. Tiger is probably the biggest ass in all of professional sports.  It makes me sick to see that guy win anything. If people ever met him and knew what kind of a person he really is no one would ever cheer for him   I hate seeing that scum win a tourney

I don't know felt like Tiger took a few years off and chilled.  I know he had back issues and a knee problem but even when he did come back earlier his mental approach was mush and he appeared focused on extra-curricular activities.

I've loved his career, glad he made it back but he really never should have gone away.  Much of it was well within his control.

everyone loves a good comeback.  If you are a fan of golf this was good to see.  I can appreciate comebacks and overcoming obstacles even if I don't care for a persons character.

Good for Tiger.  Just never come near my daughters.

In watched him today and was really excited for him after all the adversity and the back surgeries. 

But...I appreciate all the reminders that he is still a scum bag. Though not as bad as Kobe.  Why that guy gets a pass for rape I’ll never know.

Try to live your WHOLE life under the pressure of being only one thing, the greatest golfer ever, not even a person but a thing. Plus, having your development arrested in many ways, including your social life.

Walk a mile...

Seems he's grown up, sat his time in the penalty box for being an egocentric prick and worked his way to redemption.

Well played Eldrick.

I meant that, for Tiger, since he was already on TV at a very young age as a golf prodigy, that it's kinda like child stars in Hollywood and never getting to have normal teenage development.

I imagine even with all he has, there's a part of him that would give it up to be able to have a normal conversation with normal people, and not be so lousy with the ladies.
