Too many times in history, we see that great and powerful men tumble downhill because they get bad advice and suffer bad consequences.

A historical example is found in 2 Sam. 16:21. Ahithophel strategically advised Absalom, the son of the great king, David. He told him:

"Sleep with your father's concubines whom he left to take care of the palace. Then all Israel will hear about how you have made your father despise you. Everyone who is with you will support you even more."

One thing is clear. Both Absalom and his father King David were not easily accessed because of their power. Men (or women) close to them would counsel them.

Now in the contemporary world of power and money, it is certainly clear that everyone could not get access to Tiger Woods. There is probably an “Ahithophel” near him. This person close to him may have even helped him get introduced and to have access to certain people.

The “Ahithophel” in Tiger Woods’ life is someone the media needs to seek out.

Time and time again, great men fall from public grace because of their transgressions. Some go on with their lives. Some are forgiven.

The focus of this article is not Tiger Woods and his transgressions. Rather, the focus is on a question of “Who helped him gain access or who helped the women gain access to him?”

Why the media explosion in 2009? Was there someone who fed the story to the media in order to dismantle the powerful establishment built on the talents of Tiger Woods? I ask, again, “Why now?”

Whenever a story hits the internet or the major media, you can be certain that someone let it “leak” out. There is a reason hidden behind all of this surrounding the personal life of Tiger Woods.

In the historical example, someone was jealous and envied the position of David. That person gave poor counsel to David’s son. The motive was to destroy David and to dismantle his power. The man who devised the scheme against David was the grandfather of the woman David so dearly loved.  It was not enough for this man to know that his granddaughter would marry the king. He wanted more. He wanted the king’s position and power.

Now in the world of golf might there be a “Ahithophel” who is jealous of Tiger Woods holding a prime position in the sports world. This man, in this scenario, would cover for Tiger and help him smoothly slip in and out of situations.  Whoever this man (or woman is) would strategically leak out information on the great golfer, and thereby, start a hurricane of stories to disturb the career and household of Tiger Woods.

In modern vernacular, this man would say, “Go on man, have a little fun. I’ve got your back.”

Later, he (or she) turns his back on Tiger Woods, and then releases the news of his alleged transgressions.

One story said that Woods had an affair for 31 months. Are you going to tell me that nobody knew about his coming and going during those 930 days. If there were 300 text messages then, according to the arithmetic, that is one message every three or four days. 

Think about it like this: If someone is getting 300 text messages over, say, 930 days, surely someone saw him gazing over the cellphone, and zipping off to a rendezvous to meet a friend.

In fact, most women, while cleaning and arranging things at home, will “accidently” pick up their husband’s phone and peek at it. So, are you telling me that his indiscretions were not discovered earlier than Nov. 2009?

Just a thought.  More importantly, it is an opinion.
