The Golf Channel leading up to the Masters produced a weeklong run of the Wizard of Golf. Lindsey and Tiger and Kids — oh my!
Never has a grandparent doted on rugrats to the extent Golf Channel did Masters week. Lindsey Vonn was shown hugging Woods’s kids so often, you could have mistook her for a mall Santa.
Golf Channel constantly told us about smiles and hugs and better places. It was a 21st century Love-In. All you need is love. Love is all you need.
But once again, Woods’s Daddy-Pop Father of the Year performance proved to be an empty one. Now Lindsey Vonn is gone, and the kids will have yet another tawdry episode to read about when they get a few years older.
Kids are resilient, though, and it’s not their fault what their parents do. As Springsteen put it, “You’re born into this life paying for the sins of somebody else’s past.” It won’t always be fun for them, but they’ll be fine.
It’s the Golf Channel I’m worried about. How will they feel after returning to Woods’s arms only to be cheated on again? Tears are being shed tonight, you can be sure, but I bet after a good cry, Golf Channel will buck up and stand by their man. They always have.
