Tiger sends out warning
with dominant win

ESPN, by Staf

Tiger Woods ticked off the 98th victory of his professional career on Sunday, as he duly completed his domination of the WGC-Cadillac Championship at Doral. Woods, a 14-time major champion, claimed the 17th World Golf Championship title of his career around the Blue Monster - eventually triumphing by two shots in a tournament he led from start to finish. Beginning the day with a four-shot advantage, the American was only fleetingly threatened on his way to the winner´s enclosure - as Graeme McDowell, Phil Mickelson and Steve Stricker all briefly alluded to a back nine challenge before eventually slipping away.

The 18 under par he posted after round 3 was enough to win the tourney. He’s now 2 of 4 this year on the PGA. The headline must be a reference to Tiger’s comments reported by the LA Times this morning in response to a question about his returning to his monstrous play of 10 years ago…he said: "I want it to be better."

To some his golf - and his mixed race - will be everything.

To others of us he will remain someone we used to admire for his skill and now regard as a bum. A disappointment.

It was good to see McIlroy have a solid round. Stricker may have just re-animated Woodsenstein. When Tiger´s drilling all the 6-12 footers he´s hard to beat.

In the heart of their prime periods players like Palmer, Nicklaus, Watson (Tom), and Tiger were the most electrifying putters in the game, a threat to make it from almost anywhere on the green. If Tiger with his great long game has a good year with the flat stick, he will soon again be looking at his competition in his rear view mirror, and will be back at #1 in the world rankings. I wouldn´t bet against him now.

It´s significant that his old friend Steve Stricker gave him the crucial putting lesson that propelled him to victory. Each player is trying to beat Old Man Par by as many strokes as possible. Yes, there are rivalries, and pride does matter (to a degree), but mostly the players just try to play their own games, and hope that their total score will be low enough to win. Most of the other guys should be your friends when the round is over. And that´s mostly how it is on Tour. Gamesmanship is something I pretty much abandoned after high school golf. In pro golf you need to concentrate on your own game and avoid warring with fellow competitors. It´s a matter of respect and of being a gentleman. Someday Captain Justice, the god of golf, will smile upon Mr. Stricker. And that could come at Tiger´s expense. We´ll see.

#1...Some of us have always been drawn to the skill he brings to the attainment of his professional goals in a rarified sport, and, yes, many of us have been drawn to the game and Tiger because he’s a fellow Black who learned to set high professional standards with his father’s active participation. The other players have stepped up their games because of him and the competition is great to watch. What he wears, what he drives, where he lives, who he marries, who he sleeps with etc. never was and still isn’t of consequence. See how the rest of the world, the European Tour, views his career, by the numbers...

Tiger ruined his reputation and his marriage. Secondary to Tiger Woods´ outrageous self-destruction his two children have not lived with their father for the past 3 + years. So, his bad behavior is of consequence.

To quote an aging politician: "Integrity --- if you have it, nothing else matters. If you don´t have it, nothing else matters."

The good news - Tiger seems to have worked hard to correct his game and become competitive again (perhaps more than competitive!). The bad news - now I will have to see unending Tiger headlines and endless babble from Golf Channel and ESPN talking heads that can´t go a paragraph without injecting his name, again and again. Thank God I have the ability to turn it off when I want to!

Steve Stricker gave Tiger crucial advise and Tiger started sinking putts. And Steve finished second. If Steve had delayed his coaching by 1 week ...

And I loathe womanizers.

Apropos of Mr. Woods´s lack of grace, class or manners; a fan got the ball out of the palm tree that TW stuck one in. The announcers on NBC yesterday showed the tape of said retrieval.
Golf is the one game where the players are amongst the fans. One reason that golf autographs are worth less than other sports is the ability to ´reach out and touch´ one.

The announcers made light of the fact that, for the fan to get TW´s signature on said ball would be far far tougher than getting the ball out of the tree. It is common knowledge that TW does NOT emulate the class and dignity the game represented, and yet PC demands they cover for him. Even though he demanded, and got the blacklisting of a reporter who dared ask him a tough question.

#4, two comments:

a.) Vijay Singh, Jim Thorpe & Jim Dent wonder where you were when they were playing-years before TW.
b.) MLK weeps at your skin tone comment.

Re: #12...VJ is my boy, along with a number of the players on tour I’ve enjoyed watching while tracking Tiger--Phil, Duval, Strick, Payne Stewart, Garcia, Rocco, Els, and others who have challenged him over the years---have to admit Thorpe and Dent were before my time, but did know Elders personally. Lee Trevino is the last player who caused me to put watching a golf tourney on my schedule. Tiger is the one who is master of the game.

Your comment about Dr. King is a cheap. I, like millions of Blacks, was glued to the TV when MLK was to appear on a Face the Nation or Meet the Press and learned to hold my breath for 30 minutes while hanging on the meaning of every statement and praying he wouldn’t split a verb or fail to answer a question. It was an easy choice to take a low paying job to run the Western region of his national organization instead of immediately going into a high paying job following college, a few months after his assassination. And it was an honor years later to engineer Congressional approval of the MLK holiday after Jimmy Carter failed to even attempt it, as one of my many duties as a senior member in President Reagan’s political operation.

I don’t need lectures about what would cause Dr. King to weep today. He challenged all of us to work hard and achieve, regardless of our chosen profession.

#14, I did not mean to insult you with that reference; it was a roundabout way to speak to his desire to see all of his children judged by the content of his CHARACTER and not the color of their skin.

TW lacks character.

Prior to his character revealed, I cheered him as a superb AMERICAN golfer. Just like I cheered Jersey Joe Walcott as a helluva boxer, regardless.
Clay? Yes. Ali? No.

Character. Not color.

But I´ve got a way for you and I to settle this!!!(One we´ll both like, if ever it happens.......)

I´ll meet you outside the gates at Pine Valley, and whoever wins that round gets the argument too!!!

#15, you made me laugh till it hurt! Although I have homes in two golfing communities, I can only remember touching a ball twice in life...both times as a kid spending an eternity trying to cut open the skin to figure out how the bounce was achieved. I do my 5 mile daily walk AROUND the courses, but never on them as a courtesy to the golfers. As to your fighters reference, a hundred years ago I used to jog AROUND the golf course next to Dodger Stadium on the the horse bridal path with a real American we had part interest in, Ken Norton. So, if it´s golf, you win!

To fully appreciate what former South African president Nelson Mandela was able to accomplish, it is necessary to hearken back to the South Africa he found when he emerged from prison in 1990, and what the country was like in those critical four years between his release and his election to the presidency in 1994. Put simply, South Africa was a violent, dangerous and heavily-armed place teetering precariously on the edge of an all-out race war. And in the early 1990s, it was entirely unclear which way the country would go. On one side, embittered white rejectionists were refusing to

Nelson Mandela was the most famous black man in history. He transcended race barriers to become an exemplar of human generosity of spirit. His towering personality made possible the peaceful transfer of power in South Africa from white minority to black majority rule. If he was less effective as president of his country than he had been as the symbol of resistance to apartheid, he demonstrated statesmanship unmatched in Africa. He inspired love as much as respect, and became regarded by hundreds of millions of people as a secular saint. More was asked of him, and sometimes claimed for him,

Former South African President Nelson Mandela has died at age 95 of complications from a recurring lung infection. The anti-apartheid leader and Nobel Peace Prize laureate was a beloved figure around the world, a symbol of reconciliation from a country with a brutal history of racism. Mandela was released from prison in 1990 after nearly 30 years for plotting to overthrow South Africa´s apartheid government. In 1994, in a historic election, he became the nation´s first black leader. Mandela stepped down in 1999 after a single term and retired from political and public life.
