"My Dad died last New Year's Day and from the moment he passed away, there are two relatives that I have completely cut out of my life. When Dad was alive, because they were his family, we gritted our teeth and were polite but there's no need anymore to fake it"
I'm sorry to hear about your dad!
However this was your prerogative to not have these people in your life? I believe so...
So why can't Tiger have the same option?
As a TTF, Tiger has the right to interact with his family the way he deemed correct. It is a shame this type of item makes the news around the time of the first major of the year in professional golf. :(
isn't that sweet
".....if anything, he should help his brother so he can avoid the unnecessary drama this would create."
If his brother became homeless, that would be a public relations nightmare for TW, not to mention a terrible disaster for his brother.
If TW's life altering experience taught him anything, it's that sometimes it's just easier to pay the money....no matter how you feel.
