Tiger is really the Picasso of our times

Woods hasn't suddenly ceased to be a golfing genius just because he is a serial adulterer, writes Declan Lynch

They really hate him, don't they? So many people really hate Tiger Woods at the moment, for reasons that they barely comprehend. And that's just the commentators.

When he hits a bad shot, and he gets angry, they remind us that he was supposed to change his wicked, wicked ways. When he pulls down those sinister-looking shades, they moan about the hostility he is showing, how remorseless he seems even after all the terrible things that he has done.

And when he pulls out of the tournament, as he did last week with a neck injury, they virtually call him a liar.
