“Tiger Woods was charged with DUI on Monday after being arrested in Jupiter, Florida. Woods was booked at 7:18 a.m. ET and released on his own recognizance at 10:50 a.m.” – ESPN
Monday morning of MDW…am I right?
Move over Dustin Johnson! There’s a new bad boy in the PGA. You don’t just get a DUI at 7 in the morning in Jupiter Florida unless you’re trying to send a message. That message? Letting everyone know that you’ve finally embraced being the bad boy. A notion that strikes fear in the hearts of every golfer on the tour. They don’t know whether Woods will mount a comeback or mount their wife.
Tiger has tried it all since his 2009 scandal. Sex addiction rehab, countless hours on the driving range, relentless training, new clubs, new swing coaches, new caddies….none of it has worked.
This is undoubtedly the best thing to happen to Tiger Woods’ career in the last 8 years. Anyone that hits the links, or even plays Golden Tee at the bar knows that the game of golf is all mental. Tiger’s mental shackles have been removed. His freak flag can fly. He no longer cares about the public opinion of him. He is free to return to his dominant self full of birdies, booze, and backpage hookers, and hopefully more headlines like these.
