Good News For You, Tiger Woods! Experts Predict You'll Make A Comeback With Golf & Women!

Although Tiger finalized his divorce from Elin Nordegren on August 23 and his golf game has sucked lately, golf insiders and relationship experts alike say he’ll be fine…in time.

Tiger Woods has had one crappy year – and things just seem to be getting worse. Not only did he announce his divorce from estranged wife Elin Nordegren today, but he played one of the worst golf games of his career a little over a week ago. But although he’s in a dark place right now, experts say his life WILL get better – and soon!

Although he should be a social pariah for cheating on Elin, 30, with a plethora of  mistresses, Dr. Jenn Berman says the type of women who will go for the 34-year-old golf pro now aren’t exactly the desirable sort. “There are always women who are ready and willing to date rich, powerful men regardless of how salacious their tastes seem to be,” the psychotherapist tells HollywoodLife.com, adding that this type isn’t exactly what you’d call a good girl. “I would say that kind of woman is a risk-taker who has a self-destructive side and who likes drama and media attention.”

However, because Tiger is “successful, accomplished and good-looking”, Dr. Jenn says it “is very possible [that he'll be fine] if he plays his cards right” by donating to charities, spending time with his kids and refraining from dating for at least 12 months as per his 12-step program for sexual addiction.

Agrees Rhonda Findling, author of Don’t Call That Man: A Survival Guide to Letting Go, “Tiger still gets dates. He cheated on his wife and gets beautiful women anyway. People are going to be lined up to date this guy! He can date as many women as he wants now, and he will. He’s a free agent.”

And if his love life will be fine, then so will his golf game. Although he played terribly at the PGA’s in Kohler, Wisconsin August 12-13, finishing 28th at a tournament he placed 2nd in last year, golf pros are convinced he’ll soon return to his former prowess on the green. “Superman met his kryptonite,” explains Jay Miller, owner of the Cresta Verde Golf Club in California and co-founder of the Get-A-Grip foundation. “No action, no golf game. As soon as he got caught he had nowhere to run and hide, so he lost his game.”

But Miller is confident that Tiger WILL bounce back. “He’s so strong mentally, he’ll figure it out. He’s going through a golf swing change again. He did that 11 years ago, he did it 6 years ago and he’ll do it now. He’ll change his swing to adapt to his age and to stay current. Just like Jack Nicklaus had a stretch, Tiger has gone two years without winning a major. I suspect he’ll win one or two next year. He’ll figure out a way to break Jack’s records.”

Pat Burke, a golfing instructor at the Hidden Valley Golf Club in Norco, Calif. says that he would “bet yes” to a Tiger Woods comeback. “No one has gotten as big as him or fallen as far. I know a lot of guys who went through divorces on the PGA tour and during that period played miserably. When the divorces were finalized, all bounced back to where they had been before.”

He adds, “I think it will probably be fair to say that his level of dominance will be less. A pretty big intimidation factor that he had over the other players is gone. When every mistake in your private life becomes page 1 news, it’s pretty tough to be intimidating. [Although] he had a pretty terrible golf year, from a professional standpoint he played better than 90% of the guys on tour wished they played as good as he did in the 4 majors. His golf game is still that good.”

You’re a lucky man, Tiger. Women and the golf world may forgive you, but if you don’t change your stripes this time around, you’re going to be a universally hated man!

Tiger Woods will never be the dominant golf player he once was!!! Tiger Woods seems to be a troubled man with serious character and emotional issues that appears to be long standing. Only time will tell if Tiger is able to conquer his demons. Tiger had his opportunity and he misused it in a very big way! He may win once in a while and regain some sponsors but his winnings will become less and less and all that will remain is the memory of his past glory! There are many good and talented young golfers out there that will give him a run for his money from now on! Tiger will continue his slow decline until he fades away into the sunset! It is time for all the new young and talented stars to shine!!!

First let me say I completely disagree with how Tiger has handled EVERYTHING. But it seems you really don’t know how sports work do you. This whole “getting caught” thing was a distraction. The biggest one Tiger has ever had. Before he was married all the “experts” were amazed at how focused he was, but when commenting on his possible record breaking Major titles, every one of them said the same thing. Wait until he gets married, has kids. Family can be a very powerful distraction for any sports player. They wanted to see what he did. Now, no one predicted cheating of course, and what he did was very morally wrong. Yet he was caught, multiple times. Humiliated on a global scale. Lost millions in sponsorships. When the divorce settles, (unless there is a pre-nup) likely billions.

But you know what, the distraction is almost over. As soon as the divorce is finalized, it will be. Now it won’t be a light switch in his head (maybe it will). But to stand there and think he will suffer for the rest of his career is being very naive. The moment the ink is dried on the divorce he gets to focus completely on golf like he has never before.

Elin on the other hand will move on with her life. It has nothing to do with her being a mother, or courageous, or being dignified, or whatever other crap you people want to throw at her feet. She was the victim, she was cheated on…plain and simple. She is doing what ANY person (man or woman) would do in this instance. She will not have to worry about money. She can focus on her kids and we will never hear from her again. And you know what, the moment the divorce is finalized, you people who support her, will all let it go, and she will never hear from you again either.

As for Tiger, he will regain his winning ways, because he will regain his focus. He will also gain back the sponsors who bailed. Why? Because the only reason they bailed was because of image. Not Tiger’s, theirs. The fans have already begun to return to Tiger. The people at the last few Majors proves it. The moment he wins ONE tournament, they will drive back in droves because of the exposure he gives.

That is how money works. Hopefully Elin can be what ever she wants to be. Maybe that’s a business woman, maybe that’s a speaker about cheating. Or maybe it’s just being a mom. Either way both of them will return to their own lives.

Tiger Woods committed the ultimate betrayal, deception and humiliation against Elin Nordegren and their children. A wife does not get over such ordeal in a short period of time. I think that Elin Nordegren is a woman with class, dignity and self respect and she would have never stay with a man like Tiger Woods, whom she may not respect and trust anymore. Tiger Woods seems to be a troubled man with serious character and emotional issues that appears to be long standing. Elin seems to know that the emotional demands of staying married to Tiger Woods would have been very high and not worth it. Elin has a big responsibility to herself and her two small children. I commend Elin for her wise decision, for being a caring and loving mother and for her great courage, dignity and class during this horrid time in her life. I wish them all the best!!!
