I Couldn't Say It Better

I suspect many of us have been wrestling with how we feel about Tiger Woods' impending return to tournament golf.

And then I read this piece by New York Times contributor Robert Wright, which so perfectly crystallizes the discussion that I feel you really must have a look.

In short: Wright compares Woods with the fictional Roy Hobbs from Bernard Malamud's The Natural. It's significant that Wright looks at the Hobbs of the novel, not the one portrayed in the movie version of the book. You do rememebr how the book ended, right?

Read the piece. Tell me what you think.
