Tiger Woods is returning to golf. After much drama and media attention, he has finished his rehabilitation, and will play at The Masters Tournament this April. This topic interests me because of all the attention Woods has been given because of his multiple affairs uncovered in past months. I want to know why he decided to come back now, instead of later or earlier.
CBS News president Sean McManus said, “It’s hard to overestimate how much interest there will be” in an interview. In an article written by Chicago Sun-Times columnist Richard Roeper, it was said that Tiger Woods return to golf won’t be as big as other media events this decade. According to Roeper, bigger ones include Obama’s inauguration, Michael Jackson’s funeral, and 9/11.
I agree that Woods’ return will not be as widely followed as other past events. Not many Americans follow golf, and even less care what happens to Tiger. The article made me think about other things that were bigger in recent times. After reading the article, I still want to know what happens, but I don’t care nearly as much as I did before, because the article made me see that it isn’t that important.
