If he gets his head out of his ass and trusts his natural talent and ability, he will be fine.

I think the indescretions of Tiger will unfortunatley, dog him throughout the rest of his career. While he was playing with the women, all his competetion and contenders were honing their game . The young upstarts are fresh and hungry. Tiger had it all, and will probably never attain that amount of talent , eagerness, and all encompassing fame again in his lifetime . He will, no doubt sabotage his game in some form as a self punishment , consiously or unconsiously.

I've always admired Tiger's ability to reach deep within and concentrate better than anyone else. If he can find that competitive edge again, I believe he'll do well. IMO, for Tiger it's not about talent, it's about concentration. He needs to get this monkey off his back (tough as it will be) before he can get back. Tiger is beating himself up on the inside. The devil has a hold on him and he ain't lettin go without a fight.

You are kidding, of course. We are talking about Golf her, not his private life. He holds most records in golf except for the the number of majors but he does hold one major record that Jack doesn't hold. Tiger won four majors in a row although not in the same year. It is called the Tiger slam. He is the only one to have done that and will probably be the only one to have done it. He is not a loser in Golf. Sure, he has a bad temper on the course but until the last tournament it had been getting better. As far as his private life is concerned who cares. It did not affect me at all, nor do I think it affected you. Hell, we even had a President get a blow job in the OVAL OFFICE but he still is popular as ever and does a lot of good around the world, as Tiger does with his foundation.

McIlroy forgot to mention that he pounded his girlfriend into the mattress, on his time back in the old country. Rory, without golf, you'd be just another bump on the old shillelagh. Hey, Ferguson, the reason Tiger isn't taking your questions is that he's tired of being thrown under the bus. Give him a break.

Tiger earned his self recrimination; let him enjoy it.
And no one threw him under the bus; he rolled under it of his own accord.

....You are incorrect on the only person to win 4 majors in a row. Bobby Jones won 4 majors in a row at the time they were called majors. He won 62% of the majors he entered and retired at 28. Lord knows how many majors he would have won if he not retired so early. 62% wins in majors is a golf record that will never be touched. You see all letters saying he is a loser, he is a loser and i feel Jack's record is very safe. He will never be the golfer he was as he thinks to much about pussy on the golf course. A pure loser for golf, but the best thing to happen to his sex addiction...

It is amazing how many people include a 'famous' person's personal life with professional life. You go through history and find famous people, who had affairs and god knows what else, are as popular today as they ever was because of the job they did or the job they are doing now. What people do in their personal life has no bearing on how good of a job they do/did in their professional life, whether it is athletes--movie stars--rock stars and politicians.
And, I was talking about the modern majors. I don't remember Bobby Jones playing against 160 players in a tournament, might be wrong, I didn't look it up.
But, anyway, whatever. We will disagree regarding professoional and personal life.
