Tiger Woods Will Be Okay!

Do you remember the Tiger Woods golf shot at the 16th hole in the final round of the 2005 Masters? Of course you do! Golf shots like that one are why we won't, ultimately, throw Woods under the bus. Tiger has been a tremendous attraction to the world of golf.

Tiger Woods will hear hecklers when he plays golf. Many of the perks and privileges that Tiger Woods became accustomed will no longer be offered, but his superior mental skills should allow Tiger to continue to play great golf. In the future, I expect that Tiger will continue to improve his golf skills.

Usually doors fly open when others are slammed shut. Tiger Woods is not desperate for money. It is my opinion that Tiger will not be tempted by sleazy offers that he'll probably get from people who want to try to capitalize on his unfaithfulness.

Hopefully, Tiger will continue to seek professional help so that he can completely understand what went wrong in his life. He won't be completely forgiven by his golf fans until he can come to terms with the whole mess and honestly forgive himself. I wish Tiger only the best for his future private and public life.
