Way back in 2008 after his marital indiscretions I said he'd never win a tournament again, never mind a major. In 2009 he won 6 PGA tournaments now he's just done the impossible and won another major.

I'm sick of eating humble pie.

Great win Tiger hope you win many more.

If you missed it, read this very long article about Tiger's obsession with the US Navy SEALs following his near-mental breakdown following the death of his father.


Tiger was a natural introvert, and the financial interest for him to be extroverted really drove a wedge in his personality. Being a celebrity changed him and he struggled with that -- and he struggled with the fact that he struggled with that."



Tiger and a group of five or six (Navy SEALs) went to a diner in La Posta. The waitress brought the check and the table went silent, according to two people there that day. Nobody said anything and neither did Tiger, and the other guys sort of looked at one another.

Finally one of the SEALs said, "Separate checks, please."

The waitress walked away.

"We are all baffled," says one SEAL, a veteran of numerous combat deployments. "We are sitting there with Tiger f---ing Woods, who probably makes more than all of us combined in a day. He's shooting our ammo, taking our time. He's a weird f---ing guy. That's weird s---. Something's wrong with you."
