@ossobuco,
I'll gurgle that I've thought of golf courses as major water wasters. They made sense back in the Scotland rough, and less so in arid areas - unless those would be kept natural. I know there are some workarounds to save water on them, but I'm still iffy. Alternately, a thoughtfully designed course could keep land from being paved over.

So, I don't know.
I'm more in favor of nature preserves, but am not totally against smart golf courses. Yet. Not that anyone asked.

@ossobuco,
I don't think the Scottish courses were notably lush. Don't know about the players, and I'm not implying a darn thing. The man's got problems, enough.

@roger,
Scotland - it all started there, and nature was the play zone. Nature had natural bunkers. I think there has been a lot written on all that.

On Woods, I've no idea - I generally like him from afar.

@Seed,
I think the links is just a phrase for some designed number of holes as a package, which may vary in number, but are often eighteen. (Don't trust me.)

@Seed,
"Regular" courses are built on parklands. Links courses by the sea.

(CNN) -- State troopers arrived at the home of Tiger Woods on Saturday to interview the pro golfer and his wife about a car crash near his home, but were told the couple was not available to talk as scheduled, a spokeswoman for the Florida Highway Patrol said.

The troopers were asked by Woods' agent to postpone the interview until Sunday, spokeswoman Kim Miller said.

State troopers had tried to speak to Woods on Friday as part of a routine car accident investigation, but his wife said he was sleeping, said Kim Miller, a spokeswoman for the Florida highway patrol

Me thinks Tiger is huddled with a gaggle of lawyers, PR specialists and managers, figuring out what his explanation is going to be....

What do they have to hide?

So Woods is a role model. I wonder how much I would like anybody " let alone my children " to take on the real implications of being like Tiger. Hide your real nature, my son. Dissemble. Go for a great big vacant smile. When you speak in public, say much but say nothing. Calculate. Compute. Express no views on religion or politics. Never forget that Republicans also buy sneakers, as Michael Jordan taught us. Remember that platitudes are your friends.

And here is the centrepiece of all that you do in the world. Whatever you do, whatever you think, whatever you say, never, never, never rock the corporate boat.

That is what Woods has made himself: an expression of the central importance in life of the corporate dollar. So he has made his millions and the companies around him have made their billions " and it has all come about by presenting the world an illusion. A pseudo-Tiger, a false vision of a perfect being, so perfect that scarcely an atom of his real personality " any personality " is discernible.

Small wonder that this way of living has created tensions. Woods’s late father, Earl, predicted that Tiger would change the course of humanity. But Woods fils has chosen another route, as was his right. He has played golf at a rare and lofty level, and he has played brilliantly with the world.

He has done this by living a life of a million evasions, until you’d swear that he had turned into a cardboard cutout of himself. On Friday, we had a glimpse of the human being. He had dissembled so brilliantly that the world was actually surprised.

@hawkeye10,
So?

I don't think that buying a ticket to a golf game, or a shoe, or a club buys admission into a person's private space.

@dlowan,
from what I understand, Tiger's attorney has told the cops to pound sand.

@Rockhead,
yep, Tiger has decided this is personal and not anybodies business. We shall see how that works out for him. Amongst my friends I don't hear 10% of the excitement about him that I used to. He seems to be wearing out his welcome, too strange and unlikeable to embrace, plus he simply makes way too much money to be likable.

the rights of the citizen and/or golf fan is not the topic being discussed, it is the decline of the Tiger Brand.

Without the people Tiger is not much, and he is losing his fans I think.

@hawkeye10,
Tigers main problem is that neither men nor women respect a man who lets his wife kick the **** out of him. So long as that is the only credible scenario for what went down that night he is toast.

Umm, someone else was making a point about how the lack of authenticity from Tiger is hurting the Tiger brand, I said nothing, and there was no attack.
