Welcome to the polarizing world of Tiger Woods.

What some see as arrogant, others see as cool.

It’s true that no athlete is bigger than the game itself but Tiger has made a career of testing that theory.

For years the masses considered golf as old and boring as the Webster’s dictionary. Then along came Tiger and the definition changed. Young athletes grew up idolizing a golfer instead of a hockey or basketball star. Television executives bought a new car when he entered a tournament.

That was then, this is now.

Has anything changed?
