(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
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.
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

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.
You were attacking him for not "being himself".

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.
