Last words on Tiger?
I spoke too soon. You are not fed up with the Tiger scandal. Not to the point that you won't write, anyway. If I suggested that you had shrugged off l'affaire Woods
, I spoke too soon. Here are two letters from opposite sides of the tracks about Woods behavior. One takes us to task for continuing our relationship with him, another says, in effect, "get over yourselves," golf writers. Maybe they're the last words on the episode....maybe it's all golf from now on.
Your continued support of Mr. Eldridge Woods is unacceptable. I am along time subscriber of your mag and I will stop renewing if you continue your support of Mr. Woods. I'm deeply saddened by the inaction of you and Mr. Finchem. Mr. Woods should be severely punished. His antics have hurt the game of golf and will have far reaching consequences. Act now and do the right thing. Golf has been supported
for years by the generous and truly good people involved in pro sport! Mr. Woods has put a very bad mark on the years of work done by great people who have donated there time without so much as a penny!
A few comments surrounding the delusional positions taken by some media
1. To all of the members of the Golf Writers Assoc of America who "made
a stand" and boycotted for the reason reported as they should be able to
ask questions. Tiger doesn't need you. He can release his statements
via his web site. Show a real stand and don't write a word about him for
6 months. You'll all be unemployed.
2. Brandel Chamblee stating something to the effect: the writers speak
for the fans and they want to ask questions. Huh? They were the same
ones writing he got smacked in the face by Elin with a golf club. And
every time a family member or the like put gasoline in their car it was
a national news breaking story. It's unfortunate that those people chose a career
path that is so dependent on such trivial, inconsequential events
basically by one person that the media needs to make it such a big deal.
3. Ernie Els must be looking for more beat downs. Cause they are
What he did was inexcusable and I am a father that had the tough
conversation with my son. But this too shall pass, hopefully soon and
we can all get back to golf.

It will be time soon to put away our tabloid ways and watch Tiger play golf again. Latest news: Tiger has returned home. Betting men and are laying odds he will make Arnold Palmer's tournament at Bay Hill. Jack thinks he'll play the Masters. Tiger won't be endorsing a betting company. . .
In short, life seems to be slowly returning to normal. Comments please.
