Truth is, only 4 women came forward so the real problem is speculation. Fact: GolfWorld March 2011 - article was written with interviews given by several ex-pros who stated that since the days of Arnie it was a known fact that most of the players had a woman at every stop on the tour and they all knew which pro engaged in it. They went on to say that Tiger would look like a sugar cube compared to what was routine during their time.
Bottom line: Doesn't excuse it but nobody knows how many or if there were payoffs. The only payoff I got rumor of was the original and who knows if that is even true. Only Tiger knows and the fact is, he certainly isn't the only pro sport celeb to engage in that activity and won't be the last. Bottom line: No pro has ever had this much scrutiny for this long, interesting why that is. Heck, the kid that got caught with weed and his buddies from the Nationwide tour only had a 3 day news cycle and they committed a crime! Bottom line: Tiger apologized for his behavior and he only has to answer to his kids, wife and higher power. Sad part is, this continued scrutiny on one pro should be done and over with. Let the man play golf.
