It would also turn the tables on all those so eager to turn on him. And lastly, don't you think it would sell?

We've just found out Tiger has the appetite, and we know he can perform under the bright lights in front of the cameras. It seems adult actresses may be the only ones who can keep up with his libido.

Nothing says reform like a big act of philanthropy, and redistributing his wealth would go beyond the usual suspects. Not only would his foundation be getting money, but another chunk could go to Elin, some to John Daly, and some to his former sponsors circa 2009 for "letting them down." Of course, this will be when the endorsement dollars will really start flowing in.
At some point it'll be time to call it a career.
