Do I make any sort of uninformed comment on the news of Tiger Woods’ car accident and related rumours or dismiss the whole thing as gossip with no effect on the game of golf itself. After all, this is a golf website.
Is any of this golf? Does it have anything to do with golf? If not, do readers of Aussie Golfer even care?
I have yet to see anything that remotely looks like a credible information source apart from a few police details. I’m the first to admit that things look like a dodgy scorecard and just don’t add up but the idea that 90% of matter in the universe is missing doesn’t seem to add up either. I bet the National Enquirer won’t report on that today.
The whole affair is getting murkier and murkier thanks to more gossip and rumours. Some golf writers have argued that Tiger Woods owes everyone an explanation as whether or not his personal life is our business is now besides the point. I couldn’t think of anything more to the point.
There are potential implications that may be golf related. This is arguably the greatest golfer in history so a blight on him may well become a blight on the game. and there is a danger that these truths or lies may affect his chase for more majors and status of the greatest golfer ever.
I wonder whether the story should stay in the realms of gossip sites and regular news outlets until there are any implications for the game of golf.
I’d really like to hear any thoughts on this one.
