Tiger Woods

The greatest of his generation, Tiger Woods took his place among the best of all time Wednesday night when he was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame and shared a life story of a passion to play and a work ethic that made him feel like he earned it.

Woods didn’t touch on any of his 82 victories on the PGA Tour or his 15 majors, or the eight surgeries he endured along the way.

He spoke of his parents taking out a second mortgage that allowed him to play the junior circuit in California, choking up when he mentioned his late father who told him he would have to earn everything he wanted.

Phil Mickelson’s victory over the weekend at the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island and Tiger Woods’s win at Augusta National in 2019 are such singular, separate accomplishments — different golfers who overcame different obstacles on vastly different golf courses.

Yet when Mickelson won the PGA Championship on Sunday, becoming the oldest player to win a major, didn’t the mind drift easily back to Woods at the Masters two years earlier?        Continue reading

GOLF: Tiger Woods says he is ready to win his fifth Masters — HE WINS – UPDATED

  •  Former world No 1: ‘I feel like I can win here’
  •  American was close in last two majors of 2018

Tiger Woods

Eleven years separate Tiger Woods and a major triumph. Fourteen have elapsed since he last prevailed at the Masters. As he prepares for a 22nd appearance at Augusta National, Woods cited a relatively trivial gap of 139 miles as the most significant. That distance separates the venue for the year’s first major and East Lake, where Woods returned to winning ways last September. Since 2014, a series of back surgeries had raised doubts over the 14-times major champion’s future in the game.

“I feel like I can win,” said Woods, 43. “I’ve proven that I can do it. I put myself there with a chance to win the last two major championships of the year last year. I was right there and just needed to have a couple more things to go my way and not throw away a couple shots here and there, which I was able to do at East Lake.

Do Japanese women love white men only? – commentary

Do Japanese women love white men only?

November 25, 2014 | By |  Features / Columnists, Freddie Kissoon

Last week, Britain denied a visa to successful American “pick-up artist”, promoter Julian Blanc. A “pick- up artist” promoter is different from a pick-up artist. The latter practices the art of seducing women. The former runs a business teaching men how to do it. Blanc has a fairly well patronized service in the US. He tours the world holding seminars for pick-up artists.

In one of his videos, Blanc said that if you are a white male you can get any Japanese woman you want. The question is, does that surprise you? In Guyana, the Caucasian image dominates ninety eight percent of commercials in both the print and electronic media. I have a file that I keep permanently in my car.

It contains Caucasian images in advertisements in the print media and you would be surprised that those White faces appear in advertisements ranging from hospital service to the retail trade. In all types of placements in the media, whether it is the latest coffee, the newest bath soap, the latest medical equipment, the newest toothbrush, a recent pharmaceutical discovery, or a recent discovery in the use of a screw-driver, the person in the frame is a White human being.
