Golf Digest has an article out, “Is Tiger Woods really “lost?” 6 prominent theories about his current struggles.”
Laughable and predictable. “He’s lost a sense of meaning” is one of them. “He’ll soon be 40” is not.
My favorite, however, is this one:
He Can’t Play
We should be very clear that rumors of Woods being suspended have been strongly refuted by Woods’ agent and the PGA Tour; even the journeyman pro, Dan Olsen, responsible for spreading the rumor has retracted his remarks. Nevertheless, sometimes there’s no satisfying conspiracy theories.
So… Dustin Johnson and the PGA Tour both said DJ was not suspended, but the golf media continues to this day to insinuate that he was. Twice.
But if you speculate the same with Woods, you are a “conspiracy theorist.”
These current golf reporters defend Tiger Woods the way lobbyists for R.J. Reynolds once defended cigarettes. Vehemently, but contrary to all logic.
I posit that if anyone at this point in time — post-Galea, post-Biogenesis — still thinks Woods played clean, then THEY are the ones in the camp of the “conspiracy theorists.” “Four or more” has been proven to be “fourteen or more, and another 49 from Lindsay.”
The golf media’s favorite slogan: “Who are you going to believe, Mark Steinberg or your lying brain?”
That article will leave a sour taste in your mouth, but this one about Rory in USA Today will makes things better.
