Tiger's influence

Tiger Woods is included in Time magazine's "Time 100: The World's Most Influential People," in the category of "Heroes and Icons," in its May 4 edition. Tennis star Roger Federer, among Woods' friends, wrote about Woods:

"We are fortunate to live in the Tiger Woods era. Tiger, 33, is a model for how athletes should conduct themselves. He respects the legends who came before him, like Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer. He knows the history of his sport. He handles himself with class, and he's articulate. There's no silly talk in public from Tiger. When he speaks, people listen."
