Programmed from the cot to play golf and living live with no other purpose he did exactly that which his father expected of him. His father is exposed for all his depraved, bigoted, abusive and self indulgent traits. Tiger is unrelentingly proud of him but allows him to be buried in an unmarked grave. The reader is left question just "...Why..."? Little is said about Kultida but the most telling quote was that she told Tiger never to damage her name. Imagine her sitting, face drawn in the front row, while he was forced to face the press at The PGA Tour HQ after being caught cheating by Elin.
There is plenty for the golfer. His change to the Nike Tour ball which flew straighter, after which he won the US Open by 15 shots at Pebble Beach...and ushered in the age of the modern ball. Tiger followed up with hitherto unheard of margins. Just how much are today's scores dependent on this technology?
I only came to realize on the last three pages that he is still under probation for his drug cocktail arrest on Military Trail in May, 2017. As someone with three, and one very similar, back operations to those which Tiger underwent, I understand just how badly a man can crave Vicodin. Yet here we are, only eleven months later and Trackman tells us that Tiger has a 129 MPH clubhead speed. The book tells us just what an athletic phenomenon is Tiger, and even if not winning Majors again...I say 'Yet"...playing 4 rounds in 4 days, practising hard and competing is hard to believe.
Plenty of drama; plenty of tragedy; little humor. But now we see TIger on television, charming to reporters, a warm humility in the man who rejected summarily nearly everyone who tried to hold him close. Perhaps burying the ghost of his controlling father and being left with only his mother will allow Kutilda to look upon her son with the pride denied her years ago.
So private, here's an example: O'Meara was being interviewed by the Golf Channel and one question was how is Tiger and O'Meara answered with "good days and bad days." That's all he said. That night there was a late night Tiger text to O'Meara that read," I love you like a brother but I'd appreciate it if you didn't discuss my health with the media.
I hope that all the people that were so good to Tiger thru the years, personal and professional, forgive him someday and try to understand him. He wasn't raised to be a good and nice person. Earl and Kultida were failures as parents in my opinion and this book, without saying so, makes that pretty clear.
