Tiger is returning to the PGA TOUR in a few weeks at the Masters at famed Augusta National, which I think is another calculated and strategic move by Tiger and his inner circle. The security within the gates of Augusta National is probably tighter than that at the White House. No one can crash that party!
Tiger’s return isn’t simply back to professional golf. It’s about returning to society and to his millions of fans, on and off the golf course. I realize that many of his fans’ feelings will run the gamut, from positive to negative. But let’s remember one very important thing…. Tiger is human and he made a mistake. He didn’t put himself up on this pedestal, we did. As he attempts to regain his life, we need to let him get on with it and start to regain what he has lost. Golf seems fairly inconsequential at this point but it is how he’s going to get started again.
I’m excited to watch him swing the golf club, make putts and get into contention again. He is the type of player that invigorates everyone on the course….players, caddies, volunteers, officials and fans. It just seems like the picture is in High Definition when Tiger tees it up. I’m pulling for him.
