I'm super pleased Tiger won, he really changed golf 20+ years ago and brought a new group of viewers in, and more younger people to play the game. I'm hopeful he keeps playing and winning for many years to come.

Everyone is human, even athletes.

One thing cannot be questioned: Woods is on the Mt. Rushmore of men's golfing greats along with Jones, Hogan, Palmer and Nicklaus.

Sad to say I can't name a similar list of women, which is due to my shortcomings land that of the sports press, not the fault of the greatest women golfers.

I used play a lot and won our company championship. The courses are too crowded and the pace of play is slower than the Bataan death march. Prices are high unless you play twilight golf which prefer not to do.

My neighbor is Betsy Rawls. She played in the 50's, won 2 U.S. women's opens plus many more tournaments and is in the American and British Hall of Fame. She is still playing well into her eighties. A wonderful person who I have learned a lot from about the history of women's golf. Women were barred from Augusta until a few years ago. Very sad.

I don't play golf, although I own a set of clubs that came from a big-box sporting goods store. I've played five or six times, each game worse than the last. I took a lesson once and realized that if I really practiced and took a lot of lessons, and played the game regularly, I could become a mediocre player. But I have no interest in making that time commitment.

For me, the Tiger Woods story is more about diversity than anything else.

I don't play golf anymore and don't follow it. I am impressed by Tigers return to glory!

There are four things that I am happy that I never got involved in: Smoking, Gambling, Golf, and boating! On the other hand I have spent many thousands of dollars over the last sixteen years attending S-2000 meets. So I guess that everyone has their vices?

I can't claim to play golf, but I do hit a ball around the grass. Last summer I joined a statewide group of retirees and their main thing is golf. Mostly 9 holes at a nearby course that costs me about $15 if I walk and don't use a cart. Gives me some exercise and I have met some nice fellas. I finally have a handicap after playing off and on for many years, and it's 36, so that should tell you something. It's still fun and madly frustrating.

Played a few times when I was in my 20's but never cared for it.
Boss I had for a summer job in high school liken it to: "chasing a white pill around a field until you find a bar".
Have watched a handful of matches over the years on TV.
