While Tiger Woods collected his third major trophy of the week, the PGA Tour’s Player of the Year award, his wife, Elin Nordegren , reportedly proceeds with divorce plans, and almost as an afterthought to the sex scandal that continues to swirl around him.The honor marks the 10th time that his golfing peers have tapped him for the award.
Besides that, Woods came back into the competitive activity after he reconstructed his knee after the surgery, furthermore, he succeeded to win six tour events in 2009,when he previously won it back in 1997, 1999-2003, and 2005-2007.He also won the FedExCup for the second time in three years. Also this week, the Associated Press named Woods the Athlete of the Decade, followed by the Golf Writers of America tapping him for its Player of the Year.
Despite the honors, Woods remains a recluse as the fallout from his serial philandering continues to swirl. In addition to continuing reports about his wife splitting with the kids, the richest athlete in the world has also lost sponsors and may lose more before this whole thing is over.
Because of his selfish and reckless behaviour it’s rumour that Woods squashed a National Enquirer story about another of his affairs back in 2007.
