Never hated him, but there was a point where I was tired of hearing about him even if he wasn't up there on the leader board or even playing. You could have some other player going off, but there's always time for Tiger.
No other player ever single-handedly put a game on the map like that. Forgive my slang. Even once-in-a-lifetime athletes like Cael Sanderson and Michal Phelps only mattered every few years or so.
Tiger made golf relevant to the entire county.
It's funny that his primary competitors recognize what he did for the game (and their pockets), but his haters don't.
