In summary, Tiger Woods is apparently interested in the LHC and believes it will help him in his game. He has also received negative publicity because of this.

She should have taken a mashie to his niblick. Take him out of commission for a while. BTW, the count is now up to 4 bimbos.

The bimbo-tally is now 7 (and climbing?) - the latest is a porn star. Apparently the invincible Mr. Woods likes his sex "unprotected", leaving Elin at risk for STDs. If these latest claims hold up, he'd better start learning how to live on prize money, because the endorsement deals will dry up pretty fast.

Gatorade has already dropped him (his Tiger Woods drink).

Somehow I can't see his face appearing on Wheaties boxes much longer, either, so likely "good-bye General Mills."

Maybe we should move this thread to Relationships? :-p

Reporters are going nuts with this. I can't believe sponsors are dropping him, this is worse than the Phelps thing. I just saw a feature article in Sports Illustrated explaining why the media is going too far with him. Hypocrisy at it's finest. God, I love mainstream media. And the fact that the story ties into physics/the LHC is the icing on the cake with all of the "black holes are going to suck up the earth" garbage I had to hear a while back.

I don't see what the thread has to do with relationships...

Are they? I hadn't heard that.

I disagree. When you make 90% of your money from endorsements and your ad campaigns include little kids saying "I am Tiger Woods", your character is a critical part of how you make your money. Tiger Woods would not have become the money making machine he is today if people hadn't believed he was a good guy.

It does have a bit to do with relations, though.

Please check the renewal date on your sarcasm detector's calibration certificate. :wink:

Okay, okay. Maybe we need a new mirror universe forum on anti-relationships? And when the two meet, there is complete lawyer-brokered anhi... anihila... (a little help here?)
 

Related to I can't putt, but I drive better than Tiger Woods.

1. Why is putting more difficult than driving in golf?

Putting requires a high level of precision and control of the club face, as well as a smooth and consistent stroke. It also involves reading and adjusting to the terrain and slope of the green, making it a more complex and challenging aspect of the game compared to driving.

2. Can someone be a good driver but a bad putter in golf?

Yes, it is possible for someone to excel at driving the ball off the tee but struggle with putting. The two skills require different techniques and strengths, and it is not uncommon for golfers to have strengths and weaknesses in different areas of the game.

3. Is driving distance more important than putting accuracy in golf?

It depends on the individual's playing style and the specific course. For some players, a strong driving game can give them an advantage on longer courses, while others may rely on their accurate putting to make up for shorter drives. Both aspects are important in achieving a good overall score.

4. How can I improve my putting in golf?

Improving putting requires practice and consistency. Some tips include focusing on a smooth and consistent stroke, using the proper grip and stance, and practicing reading and adjusting to the green's slope and speed. Seeking guidance from a golf instructor can also be beneficial.

5. Can driving skills translate to putting skills in golf?

While both driving and putting require good hand-eye coordination and a strong mental game, they involve different techniques and skills. However, having a strong driving game can give a golfer more opportunities to reach the green and ultimately improve their overall score.
