Tiger golfing. How Novel.
Normalcy Is Comforting

I have a morning ritual. I get up, shower, go to work and check ESPN.com. I am sure this is a very common ritual for many sports fans.

Today, however, I was delighted to see one of the headlines read “Couples, Tiger to play Masters practice round”. Some of you may be thinking “What’s the big deal, Fred Couples and Tiger Woods have played golf together before?”

And you’re right. This is nothing out of the ordinary. But that’s just it – we’re getting back to the ordinary! Tiger has many issues to fix in his life, but we all do. I’m just excited to see him back in competitive action.

Golf provides an escape for all of us – Tiger included. No matter if you hate him or love him, he’s still human and he needs a place to decompress and regroup.

I think getting back into the swing of things (pun intended) will actually help him and Elin. Tiger back on Tour will be a test run for their marriage. If he intends to change and be a better man, it will be evident real quick.

Regardless, having Tiger back on Tour for The Masters is great for golf fans everywhere. I know I’ll be tuning in next week even if it’s only for a couple hours of live coverage (thanks a lot Augusta!).

It is about time I am reading Tiger articles that are golf-related. Bring on the Masters and its terrible television coverage!!

i'm so ready for the new to get back to reporting the game rather than his life. i loathe personal life sports stories. i don't have any money invested in his personal life. i do have time invested into watching the tournaments, and him not being there stinks. i cannot wait. i agree with NORMALCY Nathan.

I was watching the highlights of TW's press conference and noticed that his left front incisor is a little bit of a different color than the rest of his teeth. Did anyone else notice this? Maybe Elin did knock one of them out!

Tiger has had a discolored tooth for a long time, Well before this incident.
