its funny you bitch about the St. Jude classic, when the St. Jude page has a blurb on their touting all his charity work for St. Jude.
The only thing I've seen about St. Jude and Tiger Woods is when he sponsored a library and outdoor pavilion for Target House in '99 and submitting hand-drawn pictures of elephants to be put on the walls at Target House in '02. That's it. I bet he donates money, but nothing more since 2002.
So yea, he might write a check to put his name on a library, which is fine and appreciated. But the St. Jude Classic is an awesome tournament, and the pros take time to visit the hospital and visit with the sick kids whose lives are changed by all the awesome people who not only donate money to the hospital, but also take time out of their busy lives and busy schedules to visit the kids themselves and really make a personal impact on each kids' life.
I donate to St. Jude, and my parents both have donated to St. Jude every month since 1992. Me showing up and meeting the kids won't make a lifelong impression on them (it would on me), but you don't think Tiger couldn't spend a few days in Memphis actually being a halfway decent person and changing the lives of some kids who deserve to have those kinds of experiences meeting celebrities and athletes? Apparently he doesn't, because he doesn't get an appearance fee so he doesn't attend.
He is a fckwad and I thoroughly enjoy seeing him fail for being a piece of shit. His embarrassment with his sex scandal and losing a smoking hot wife couldn't have happened to a more deserving individual. Sure, for a while he was the best, but he won't go down as the best ever and I hope that eats him up inside.
