Tiger woods and dating and 2016
He wasn't just some athlete who was caught cheating. Woods was more than just one of the most famous, highest-paid sports stars in the world.He was a history-maker, a barrier-smasher, a symbol of potential, hope and all the rewards a person can reap if, talent obliging, they work hard and make the most of opportunity.He was the PGA's top money earner in 2013 as well, with .6 million in prize money. It's absolutely ridiculous."Despite the difficulties of dating someone as dogged by the spotlight as Woods was, even when he wasn't playing golf, Vonn seemed to harbor no ill will toward him as time went on. Being able to block out the noise and block out other people's opinions, and honestly it doesn't matter what anybody else thinks as long as you're happy."Interestingly, Vonn's acquaintance with Elin Nordegren ended up turning into a full-blown mutual admiration society."I mean, we spent a lot of time together—I was with Tiger for three years," the skier told last year after a picture of them hanging out at the Kentucky Derby went viral.He got off to an inauspicious start in 2014, however, when he announced he would miss the Masters for the first time in his pro career due to injury following surgery for a pinched nerve in his back. "She's such a wonderful person, such a great mom to the kids and yeah, yeah, it was great to catch up with her and see her over that weekend and we had a great time."Woods, determined to play again last fall, intently devoted 2016 to rehabbing his back and getting back into competitive form.Oh sure, they'd be brought up, but greatest-of-all-time-no-question conversations would be the prevailing order of the day.Instead, the 14-time major winner finished tied for fourth at the Masters, and though he only missed one cut in 2010, he finished the year winless.I had good days and bad days, but the pain was usually there, and I couldn't do much. I had nerve pain with anything I did and was at the end of my rope." He called his long-term prognosis for returning to golf "positive."So it was all the more distressing when Woods was arrested in the wee hours of the morning on Memorial Day, police in Jupiter, Fla., having found the golf great asleep in the front seat of his Mercedes-Benz on the side of the road.The vehicle was damaged on the driver's side and both the front and rear tire on that side were flat.
"We tried every possible non-surgical route and nothing worked.At its best, his golf game was considered super-human.
