My name is Lieutenant Columbo of the LAPD Homicide Department and I’ve been assigned the Tiger Woods case. It’s pretty obvious somebody murdered his golf game and my job is to find out who.

One of the first things I noticed (I’m always noticing things) was when Tiger and his Swedish ex-wife, Elin Nordegren were divorced, I couldn’t find anything negative that was said about her in the media. And by the way, another thing I’ve noticed is that Tiger has a history of dating tall beautiful statuesque blonds who are highly intelligent, like Elin, and when he does he starts winning tournaments.

But getting back to the case. I talked Tiger’s divorce over with my wife (she’s very smart about things like this) and she said whenever there’s a divorce it’s never just one of the partner’s fault. It’s always both partners who contribute to the divorce, and yet, like I said, I couldn’t find anything negative about her, even in old newspaper clippings. Now, to my wife (and to me, too) that is very strange. It sounds like a “cover-up” so I had to ask myself, why in the world would anyone want to cover-up her contribution to the split-up?

Then, I dug a little deeper and came up with a very interesting statistic. I googled “The Sexual Behavior of Swedish Women” and you’ll never believe what I came up with. Listen to this: Did you know that 39% of all Swedish women have sexual fantasies of having sex with another woman. That’s right. Thirty-Nine percent. So I had to ask myself, is it possible that Tiger’s ex-wife falls into this category? Or that she’s had sex with other women? That would certainly account for Tiger’s promiscuity. Who knows?…maybe he came home one day and found her in bed with another woman? When you’re investigating a murder anything is possible.

So here’s what I think may have happened. When Tiger and his ex got a divorce, Tiger did everything humanly possible to keep his ex-wife’s sexual practices out of the media. Why? Because he was worried about the effect it could have on his children. And, in my opinion, it’s been like a dark cloud over his head, just like that Joe Btfsplk guy in those Lil’ Abner cartoons. And it’s this very cover-up that could be affecting his game because he is “withholding.”

I checked with a sport psychology consultant who happens to be a friend of mine and he said that when an athlete withholds it’s a form of lying that demeans him (in this case, Tiger) and not only lowers his self-esteem but also creates psychological baggage that affect his ability to focus and process information. My friend also told me it could be a source for “misdirected anger.” He said that when and if I’m able to find the murderer he predicts we will see an entirely new Tiger because a big load will have been lifted from his shoulders. And that dark cloud will disappear.

There’s one other thing my friend told me. He said that he believes Tiger is over-estimating the effect it will have on his children since most children are highly resilient and are capable of adapting to adversity in their lives. Especially if they have been loved unconditionally as he was sure Tiger’s children have been.

Now, here’s my problem. I can’t just arrest Tiger’s ex for having murdered his game, unless, some national sports writer gets wind of this and after finding out it’s true writes a column about it. And if that happens, my friend says he believes you will see an entirely different Tiger Woods on the golf course, providing, of course, he’s found another tall, beautiful statuesque blond who is highly intelligent.

I just finished reading an excellent article in USA Today by Steve DiMeglio and it was filled with information about Tiger starting his 19th season on the PGA Tour, but nowhere was there any mention of why he hasn’t won a major since 2008.

I don’t think it’s a coincidence that Tiger did not play well while he was having those extra-marital affairs in 2008 until November, 2009, when the National Enquirer published a story about his personal life.  Soon after, in 2010, he and his then-wife, Elin Nordegren, divorced and she received custody of their two small children. As anyone who has ever been through a divorce knows, when there are small children involved, it doesn’t end the relationship but merely transforms it.

It’s been said that “hell hath no fury like a woman scorned” so one can only imagine what went through Tiger’s ex-wife’s mind when she read in the media that Tiger was dating beautiful Olympic Skier Lindsey Vonn. I’ve heard (and I don’t know this to be true) that she hates Vonn and if so, it would explain why Tiger’s ex may be harassing him. So my theory is that there’s a good possibility that Elin has been doing everything possible to make Tiger’s life miserable.  Is it any wonder that he hasn’t won a major since 2008?  And by the way, I’ve never heard of a divorce taking place where there was not enough blame to go around on both sides, and yet I have never heard or read anything negative about Elin in the media.  I’m sure Tiger has been instrumental in making this happen since he knows that if anything negative appeared in the media it would, in the long run, affect his children.

So what can Tiger do, if anything, to reduce the amount of stress he is receiving from his Ex? (assuming I’m correct.)  For starters, I would get two cell phones.  One for his personal and business related calls (which Elin would not have access to) and the other strictly for Elin, which he would turn off before teeing off in the opening round and keep it off for the entire tournament.

The answer is: Yes. But it depends…
After reading Steve Helling’s book called “Tiger” it’s now obvious that what brought Tiger out of his past slumps was a meaningful relationship with a beautiful well-educated statuesque blond, someone he admired and would even consider marrying. In other words, a “significant other.”

There is no question that when athletes are happy and their lives are in harmony they will perform close to their skill levels on a consistent basis. In 1999, after a two year slump, Tiger met Joanna Jagoda, a pretty blond co-ed at Cal-Santa Barbara who was not only beautiful but also intelligent and ambitious with an intent on attending law school. As soon as they began dating (including her taking trips with Tiger to tournaments around the globe) Tiger returned to dominance and as Helling points out in his book, “beginning a three year winning streak that would cement his spot as one of golf’s best players.” But in 2001, his relationship with Joanna began to fade (along with caddie problems he was experiencing) and his game suffered. And it was then that he met Elin Nordegren, another highly intelligent, beautiful, statuesque blond. In 2003, he ended his relationship with Joanna and began dating Elin exclusively and suddenly, his game returned to the Tiger of old.

Since his divorce, it’s unknown if Tiger has had a new “significant other” in his life but it’s been rumored that he’s been dating another statuesque blond whose name is Lindsey Vonn,  an Olympic Skier. If this rumor is true, then during the 2013 golf season we should be seeing a new, improved Tiger Woods.  But only time will tell.  Postscript: In today’s news we learned that Lindsey Vonn tore two knee ligaments in a tumbling crash during the Alpine World Championships in Austria and will require reconstructive surgery.  Let’s hope she gets well soon and that her new relationship with Tiger (if true) hasn’t affected her ability to focus.

I may be wrong about this (God knows I’ve been wrong before) but I think the reason Tiger Woods is playing better golf these days is because he has a new woman in his life. A new “Significant Other” who is probably a tall statuesque blond who is highly intelligent.
The reason he is not winning tournaments is because he’s keeping her identify a secret from the media and the general public. That is, he’s “withholding” which is a form of lying that creates baggage affecting his ability to focus. In the past there was Joanna Jagoda and Elin Nordegren, who everyone knew about. But today there’s someone else, who no one knows about. If I were advising Tiger (which I’m not) I would encourage him to go public and introduce his new “significant other.” When he does that, I’m pretty sure you’ll see him light up the leader boards once again like the Tiger of old.

I must admit, I’ve been wrong for quite a while now when I’ve assumed that Tiger’s current problem is related to his divorce and his relationship to his ex-wife when dealing with everyday issues involving their children. I’ve been dead wrong.

I’ve just finishing reading Steve Helling’s book called “Tiger” and it’s now obvious that what brought Tiger out of his past slumps was a meaningful relationship (not one night stands) with a beautiful well-educated woman whom he admired and would consider marrying. In other words, a “significant other.”

I’ve always maintained that when athletes are happy and their lives are in harmony they will perform close to their skill levels on a consistent basis. And Tiger is no different. In 1999, after a two year slump, he met Joanna Jagoda, a pretty blond co-ed at Cal-Santa Barbara who was not only beautiful but also intelligent and ambitious with an intent on attending law school. As soon as they began dating, including her taking trips with Tiger to tournaments around the globe, Tiger returned to dominance and as Helling points out in his book, “beginning a three year winning streak that would cement his spot as one of golf’s best players.” But in 2001, his relationship with Joanna began to fade (along with caddie problems he was experiencing) and his game suffered. And it was then that he met Elin Nordegren, another highly intelligent, beautiful, statuesque blond. In 2003, he ended his relationship with Joanna and began dating Elin exclusively and suddenly, his game returned to the Tiger of old.

But today, Tiger does not have that meaningful relationship with a beautiful, intelligent well-educated woman. Unfortunately, many of the women who appeal to Tiger are turned off by his past behavior and so it’s probably pretty difficult for him to find a “significant other.” But it will happen. And when it does, you’ll be able to tell. Just watch the leader board.
