A Tiger in the Rough
There are at least two myths that are generally accepted as truth within the community of men. The first is amusing. Its that fantasy football is real. Look, I know some guys who prepare for the real fantasy football season with the determination, focus and secrecy of General Eisenhower planning for D-Day.
The second myth is that men have mastered the art of compartmentalizing their emotions so that they dont affect a guy's performance. Well, if you have been following Tiger Woods play recently, this myth is being dispelled before your eyes. Tiger is indeed in a "rough" and its going to take more than his trusty sand wedge to get him out of it. Make no mistake that men are whole people and what happens in Vegas never stays there. The consequences always follow you home.
That said, I think that the writer of this article makes some valid points when he suggests that Tiger needs to focus more on straightening out his fathering than trying to hit a straighter and longer shot from off the tee. Ironically, fathering is a lot like hitting a tee shot on the PGA tour. There are no mulligans. You only get one chance to get it right.
