Two Golfers

As much I don't want to get sucked into the psychodrama surrounding the world's best golfer, it's impossible for me not to comment on the striking contrast between these two articles:

SI's Alan Shipnuck, on what he calls Phil's greatest victory, and how it was fueled by his love for his wife.

The London Daily Mail, claiming in an article that Elin Nordegren is planning to divorce Tiger, based on her distaste for the Nike commercial that aired during Masters weekend.

There's really no way to tell how accurate that last article is, but assuming for the sake of argument that it is, my reaction is somewhere between bemused disbelief and "WTF? Everything that's happened up to this point, and you're leaving him because of a TV commercial?

The sooner we can all get past this story, the better.

The media is really milking this story because it crosses the sports and celebrity/gossip columns. It won't be for Tiger and Elin, but I'd like it to be over and done with, too, at least for its place currently on the sports pages. Good post. Thanks.
