No worries. If I were in attendance I wouldn't yell in his backswing, or say anything to, at, or about him. Just watch in awe.

 

But Tiger has been my guy since I was 12. JS wasn't even born yet.

I loved the shot on 16.   I went to visit a shut in earlier and waited with him to watch Tiger play a few holes together.   Dying people will get out of bed to watch him play. That's how Tiger

Here's an interesting fact - over 1.1 million people were arrested for DUI in 2014.   People with as many or more DUI convictions than Tiger: 1.09 Million (at least) People with as many or more Maj

That dude should be banned from all PGA events.

I saw the Q&A and it was very interesting. I will say this, I think Tiger is so complicated a person that we will never know the true story about him. Which is disheartening because usually when there are not concrete facts, everyone takes different avenues from the limited details.

Honestly I would say, who cares? Some of my favorites in other sports were Micky Mantle and Lawrence Taylor. I don't care what they are doing off the field because in the end unless you know them, you can't know them on a personal level. For me athletes aren't role models, they are distractions, a chance to get away from the trials and cares of life.

 

The only bit of info I'd care about with Tiger is if it could be proven that he issued PEDs. But if he did then so did others and he still blew them away so even that wouldn't bother me all that much.

 

I enjoy excellence in sports even when I'm rooting against it.

I'm with Rev on this. Athletes aren't role models (unless they are separately role models), and I tend to root for someone because of the "character" of their play.

Last year I was a volunteer at the Quicken Loans tournament at TPC Potomac.   Shortly after that tournament it was announced that Quicken Loans had pulled its sponsorship, so I wasn't sure what this year would bring.   About three months ago, I got an email stating that the tournament would be played, called the National and request that I once again volunteer.   So I forwarded my volunteer registration and requested assignment to the Media Center.   Yesterday, Tiger announce that he would be playing because it benefits the Tiger Woods Foundation.   Last year the crowd followed Rickie Fowler, this year it will follow Tiger.    Last year people would ask me, where is Rickie, and I would say just find and follow the crowd.   I suspect this year I will be asked where is Tiger and I will again say find and follow the crowd.

Sounds great, volunteering can be a lot of fun.

Volunteer rounds were not offered last year.   However, a few years prior, I was a committee chair for the Web.com tour when it played there.  I had to attend a couple of organizational meetings and after the meetings I got to play the course.   In addition volunteer rounds were offered.

Looks like a really nice course.  Must have been fun.  Congrats on being a volunteer...hope you run into Tiger!

Would liked to know what it's like from a volunteer perspective with the Tiger “following”.

I stopped in the pro shop Sunday, and noticed that the shop was out of Tour B XS.

The owner said they are selling like hot cakes.

This is pretty much my feeling on it.  My grandmother used to say "there are celebrities, and then there are important people."  I've used that line I don't know how many times.  I just wish the kids I teach and coach would listen when I tell them.

It's honestly a really good ball. I liked it before I found out Tiger played it. After I found out, I started eating them for breakfast just to try and get a little bit of his essence.
