Tiger....take a page from Phil Mickelson's Playbook

Nice move: Phil Mickelson brings his wife's doctor in to caddy

If you're not into golf you probablly don't know the backstory of Phil Mickleson and his wife, Amy and his mother Mary, both diagnosed with breast cancer. Dr. Tom Buchholz, a radiation oncologist at the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, took such good care of the two most important women in his life and to show some appreciation Mickleson offered the one-time caddy the opprtunity of a lifetime. Buchholz does indeed know the game he had c addied and ran a golf proshop in Westchester NY. Some say Mickelson did this for publicity, they don't know what they are talking this was an honor.
Which bring me to Tiger Woods, no I won't pile-on him like everyone else, but a word of advice going out to Tiger. Think about what Mickleson did and then take some stock in your own life. I'm not saying you should do exactly the same thing nor do I wish you or your family harm. However the world works in weird ways, maybe the reason why Phil won is because he wasn't distracted with otherstuff.Mickelson did something to thank someone. He is a true winner, on and off the golf course. Not becauseof his words, but because of his actions !
