TIGER’S POST-MISTRESS MASTER’S (UPDATED) by Elizabeth Searle
Breaking: Phil Mickelson has taken the Master’s Title this year– how much of a setback is this for Tiger?
On and off the course, Tiger faced a huge test this week. Blog friend Caitlin sent in a link to a bizarre new Nike commercial dramatizing a contrite Tiger hearing his deceased father. Caitlin felt it made her skin crawl and my skin’s with hers. WDYT?
Meanwhile, Blog follower ‘wd’ had a positive early reaction to Tiger’s Press Conference, calling it a ‘magnificent’ disgraced-celeb. performance that seemed to him ‘sincere.’ I agree Tiger has much improved his apology ‘game’ and does seem more at ease and at the same time more truly sorry. And on the course?
Golf is a psychological game and Tiger Woods (as we’ve all learned ) is a mere mortal. So far, his fabled superhuman powers of concentration have slipped a bit this week at the Master’s tournament in the unwelcome and unflattering glare of the scandal spotlight.
And what of Tiger’s estranged wife Elin Woods? Understandably, she is skipping the Master’s. Unconfirmed rumors say she may be pregnant. Will she eventually rejoin her ringside seat as the tournament season plays out?
Do you find yourself rooting for Tiger, the supreme athlete, to win out, or for Tiger the ‘Cheetah’ to pay the ultimate price and lose his mojo? My money (not that it’s smart money, sports-wise) said that Tiger would make some screw-ups on the golf course this week, just as he’s done so spectacularly off the course lately, in the game of life.
With the world watching, I wondered if Tiger the golfer would regain his pre-Mistress Mastery. At first, he was proving me wrong. And now, with Mickelson’s victory? Do you want Tiger to ultimately emerge victorious? Or is his reign ending?
And in this Master’s Tournament week, be sure to visit the celeb-inspired Masterpieces like Queen of Rock (right) on display in our StarLit Gallery. We welcome submissions to the StarLit Gallery and will be choosing some of our online art for an onscreen role in the forthcoming short film from Bravo Sierra, now set to shoot in late April: Celebrities in Disgrace…
