    I’ve believed for a long time that we make our own luck.

    THankful he is safe but his ins co is saying to the FD, "you cut up a WHAT!"

    I remember the first time I saw Tiger, he was 5 and with his dad on the Mike Douglas show.

    I wonder if he'll test positive for Marijuana, Dilaudid, Xanax and Ambien like the last time he had an automobile driving issue? Given his celebrity status they may not even test him.

    While I don't wish bad things on anyone, I have ZERO sympathy for mega-dollar celebrities who get into trouble. I still laugh at the nasty, skanky women he played around with since his swedish supermodel wife just wasn't hot enough for him. Zero respect for the man. Zero. Golf accomplishments, respect, the man, no respect. Same with Kurt Cobain. He took too many drugs and blew his brains out with a shotgun forcing his little girl to grow up without a dad. Musician, a little respect, as a man, zero.

    For some reason there will always be ghouls who feel the need to do this.

    that's pretty heartless man. disregarding any lifestyle facts that you would choose to condemn him on, being in a rollover accident with multiple breaks in both legs and bone sticking out sucks big time and why you would choose to hate on him like this is baffling.

    shall we have an examination of your angelic life while we're at it? I didn't think so.

    Sucks for him, but literally the best thing imaginable from a Marketing perspective for the Genesis. Sales of those will go thru the roof because he survived. Tib/fib will keep him out for the season most likely.

    I read an article on Golf Digest yesterday that said his leg was broken in multiple places, and in each spot the bone was broken in multiple pieces. And the writeup made it sound like bone was protruding the skin. It also said they had to surgically implant a rod in his leg as well as screws and pins in his ankle. Ouch. He's a tough guy but after everything else he's recovered from I can't help but wonder if this might be the final injury that ends his playing career. It's too bad. He was always one of the best players to watch and at his prime he was almost superhuman.

    I doubt he is losing sleep over you having zero respect for him ...

    Glad it wasn't any worse. But I can see it ending his pro playing career. A shame but at least he probably has a little cash cushion . Into the booth maybe ?

    He'll need a bunch...coupla compound fractures of his right leg, screwed up ankle. Let's just say he'll be setting off metal detectors at the airport from here on in.
