Yeah, I heard about this...what's so sickening is the guy has like 1/5th that amount in career winnings, meaning that he is making phat jack doing appearances and sponsorships and such...

atleast half that money has got to be including house money that he is just giving back. ive always wondered what its like to walk into a casino with $100,000 you dont care if you walk out with. that would do me pretty good in a 12 hour night of roulette.

He's a walking mess. Such an addict. I'm amazed he can get endorsement deals.

This guy need serious help. It's a shame too, because he has, or had, the talent to become one of the all-time greats of the game.

You know, I have trouble feeling TOO sorry for him, though. He smoked, drank, had all the women and gambled, and generally lived a pretty fun (but debauched) existence, all while being employed in a sport that a lot of us actually PAY to go play on weekends.

feel sorry for someone who can throw 1.5 mil into a slot machine on a given night? him firing up shit sticks in between shots during tournaments is one of the greatest testimonials to a major sport ever. even tops j. leyland firing up cigs in the dugout.

Can't say I feel sorry for him either, but I would like to see him get straightened out soon, while he's still young enough to play at the top level. I won't hold my breath or lose sleep over it though. He's not getting any younger, and with the lifestyle he's led I doubt he has many years left at the top level. His length off the tee has brought countless fans to the sport, and I guess the tour has put up with some of his behavior for that reason, just as any other sport would. But with so much of golf being mental, especially at that level, and most of his problems being mental as well, it's a wonder he's managed to keep his level of play up this long.

the gambling gives him the "escape" he needs to tune out the rest of the world and help him find his focus for the game at hand. funny how people are wired.

without the gambling and alcohol as his crutch he probably wouldve never been as good on the course as he has been.

Remove "gambling", insert "pot", what do you get?
