I wouldn't go as far as to call Tiger a pathetic human being. I know his foundation has changed the lives of many kids for the better. He's obviously not without flaws...but he's also living in a fishbowl. We all have em, everyone just doesn't see and analyze each one of ours.
That might fly if at the same time Tiger wasn't staring down people who use flash cameras or talk when he swings. If golf is different, then golf is different. He can't have it both ways.
