Elin may not want Tiger to be playing in the big tourney, but golf and ESPN executives are THRILLED!

Tiger Woods‘ presence at the 2010 Masters Golf Tournament in Augusta, Ga., has done wonders for the event’s ratings on ESPN, New York’s Daily News is reporting. In fact, with more than five million viewers tuning in for the opening round alone, the tournament is officially the most-watched golf event EVER! “Tiger has taken sports off the sports page and put it in the front of the paper,” New York media consultant Bob Gutkowski tells the Daily News. “It’s like a car crash. People pull over to take a look at the car crash. That’s what’s going on at the Masters.”

Interesting choice of words, Bob, considering how the media first caught wind of Tiger’s scandalous situation back in November. But with more than twice as many viewers watching the tournament this year as last year, it’s kind of impossible to argue with him.

“These are not people who are going to stick to viewing golf, this is a unique situation, and the titillation factor is huge,” he says.

So tell us, BFFs — are you among those individuals who started watching the tournament just to see what Tiger would do?

Its like you learn my mind! You seem to know so much approximately this, such as you wrote the e book in it or something. I believe that you just can do with a few percent to drive the message home a bit, but instead of that, that is great blog. A fantastic read. I will definitely be back.

Itsd about time the media left Tiger and his family alone. Sure cover his golf, thats his and your job, but his private life has been ‘kicked’ around too much, and it’s none of your business. For Goodness sake , leave him alone. and lets see what happens at home !!!!!!

The guy it a self centered ass. I feel sorry for his children when they are old enough to read about what daddy did.

He was a VERY Selfish Jerk. I hope Elin leave him for good.
She deserves alot better.

I am glad the Best Man won the Masters. Ha Ha Tiger. What comes around goes around.

HE DESERVED TO WIN AS MUCH AS ANY OTHER PLAYER; JUST BECAUSE YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT IS IN THEIR CLOSET BECAUSE THE PUBLIC DON’T CARE. MR.WOODS IS NOT THE ONLY MAN WHO EVER CHEATED AND HE DIDN’T PRESENT TO BE A GOD/HERO NEITHER A ROLE MODEL. SEEM LIKE THE REASON YUU ARE ANGRY IS BECAUSE ALL THE GIRLSWOMEN HE HAD WAS WHITE. I’M JUST COMMITTING ON YOUR REMARKS BECAUSE YOU HAVE A PERSONAL AGENDA. SO YOU HAVE SOMETHING TO DICUSS AT YOUR TEA PARTY WITH SARAH PALIN THIS WEEK. LOOK INTO YOUR HEART AND MAKE A CHANGE.

First, you don’t worship “heros”, you worship GOD! And second, sports figures and actors are not “heros or Gods” (or roll models for that matter). A “hero” “saves” a life, a community, a country from a disaster, and if you don’t know who “GOD IS” then don’t waste your time reading this because you have a more serious problem. You admire professional “performers” for their “talents” and “abilities” to “master their arts” (their personal lives are a “totally different arena” though). It’s like looking back stage of a big movie production set, sometimes it is a big mess (not for the viewing audience to see). If you look for dirt, you will find it!!! And we are “all sinners” in the eyes of GOD. “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone!” There is no doubt that Tiger adds an “interesting factor” to the game of golf and challenges everyone else to play at their best. He brings “competition” to the game and some “life” to an otherwise ho-hum event. There is no doubt that the “smart” sponsors stayed with him…he never promised to be a Saint. He is a professional golfer! Not a perfect human bean (like the rest of you) who live your lives only second to GOD! Yea, right! Many people compare the game of golf to life. If you play the game; You will have some off days and make some mistakes, you will make some divots, you will hit a sand trap or two and you will lose some balls in water, brush and probably over the fence. Do you pack up and go home…(only if you’re out of balls or never want to play again), No! You pull out “another” ball, learn from your mistakes and try to get it right the next time. Yea, it will cost you…time, penalties and the price of another ball. Nothing is free, but “everything” is not worth the “price it will eventually cost you” either. Tiger is still great at his sport and for the sport, if you want to walk in his shoes…make it the golf shoes not the street shoes, but I believe he is trying to polish those up too now. He just learn a new lesson about life (that it is bigger than “he” is but he is still responsible for it).

Amen! You could not have said it better! So many people are so quick to judge others as though they have never made mistakes. As you said, we are all sinners and if we trust God, hopefully we will turn life’s hard lesson into something positive, so that others will see the more important message. We all do things we regret, it is part of the human condition. It is,however, how we conduct ourselves afterward that shows me more about a persons character. Admitting our mistakes and hopefully turning them into something good is the real lesson in which we can all benefit from, more important than golf. Having fame can drive the point to more people, meaning more will be touched. Go Tiger!

Watch him today, he needs to clean up his language somewhat. You could hear him saying the f-word and d-word later on. This because he is under pressure doesn’t mean he is going to do everything right, get over it and don’t swear.

Wow, the people are all gathered to worship their heroe. A very sad state of heroes these days, a man with no honor who knocks a little ball into a hole. Maybe these people should also deal with the fact that if Mr. Woods didn’t need his fans to support his endorsements, he wouldn’t waste his spit on them. Now lets all get together and throw him a parade.
