Golf's MasterBook - 2009
As USA TODAY, The Nation's No. 1 Newspaper, put it, "Tom never catches Jerry....Wile E. Coyote can't nab the Road Runner. And the rest of the PGA Tour can't run down Tiger Woods." What is it about Tiger that draws so much interest, at home and abroad? Are we intrigued by the story of Tiger as a golf prodigy? Are we awed by how quickly he's marching forward to match and set golf records? Is it the 100-kilowatt smile? Is it his unwavering intensity to play his best at every event? Is it the give-back mentality he inherited from his parents? Our fascination is likely a combination of all of these things. Tiger Woods is a worldwide phenomenon, both on and off the course. Many feel the group of golfers who continue to chase him is getting better. Unfortunately for them, so is Tiger. "I just feel that I have room for improvement," he says, "and I'm going to keep working to get better." No doubt, we'll all be watching.
