THE ZEN OF TIGER

 woods_988.jpg

Several years ago slate.com ran an article entitled “Gandhi and Tiger Woods.”

In it, the author noted, “I think it’s no coincidence that the greatest golfer in the history of the universe has a Buddhist mother.” The article also quoted Woods as being (somewhat) a practitioner of Buddhism,

 “I believe in Buddhism,” Woods has said. “Not every aspect, but most of it. So I take bits and pieces. I don’t believe that human beings can achieve ultimate enlightenment, because humans have flaws.”

This past weekend Woods put in a performance that was neither Zen nor Gandhi-like. Losing his first tournament of the year, Woods became visibly angered at people trying to take his picture. Finally, he snapped, shouting,

“The next time a photographer shoots an [expletive] picture,” Woods warned, “I’m going to break his [expletive] neck.”

Wow, turns out Tiger Woods may be human after all.
