Paradise lost

'Be like Tiger?'

For the "CEO of golf" or any other leader who is famous and highly regarded, transparency is crucial. He has to say everything that needs saying, and it must be in public, not on a Web site.

Surprisingly clueless

Golf is hard. Reacting to revelations of such personal failure isn't.
