“I’m Tiger Woods!”
This quick phrase, not dissimilar to “Got Milk”? was the tagline of a very successful ad campaign a few years back.
It was successful simply because everyone around, not just golfers repeated the line wanting to separate themselves from the pack by extolling their excellence at some thing.
Well, milk still does many “a body good” but nobody now repeats the phrase “I’m Tiger Woods”.
In this life you must have integrity to have anything else. Tom Peters a highly regarded author and management consultant stated ” There is no such thing as a minor lapse of integrity”…..makes sense to me!
I understand that debates may rage on about the temptation attached to a person of Tiger’s fame and other similar commentary but (material) riches aside nobody, not even Tiger Woods wants to be Tiger Woods right now.
“It’s a sad man my friend who’s living in his own friend and can’t stand the company” Bruce Springsteen sings in his song “Better Days” ……my guess is that defines TW at this time.
He’s let down many a fan, ruined relations with many a sponsor but most importantly he has let down his wife, children and family. He lied to the public for sure but lied to them which is truly sad.
The Truth really will set you free……….even if it first pisses you off . Learn yours, know yours, live yours, if nothing else you can live in your own skin.
I am hopeful for all concerned, particularly Wood’s family that he is as much of an off-course magician as he is on the course.
If Tiger relates at all to Springsteen I hope he also listens to and tries his competitiveness best to relate to The Beatles “Hey Jude”………… Hey Tiger, “take a sad song and make it better”, you owe it to your family!
