Tiger Woods, always kept away from the real world by black-suited

men and a management team that act as if he's a world statesman

It is difficult to feel sorry for the richest sportsman in the world. Surely, however, there has to be a touch of sympathy for Tiger Woods over his baffling 2.30am crash into a fire hydrant outside his gated home at Isleworth in Florida.
His reluctance to explain to the police might look like the behaviour of a man who believes he is above the law.
At the same time, here is an individual who, partly through no fault of his own, has never been allowed to live in the real world.
He is constantly surrounded by black-suited men who look and sometimes act as sinisterly as - members of the Mafia.
He is hidden behind a management team that operates as if he were a world statesman on a hush-hush mission, instead of a sports person.
It is virtually impossible for a member of the media to talk one-to-one with Woods.
How different it was with legends of another era, Jack Nicklaus and Tom Watson.
Almost in any circumstances you could walk up to Nicklaus and Watson and have a word
If you try that with Woods you are almost frog-marched away.
In such circumstances, is it any wonder that Woods is squirming desperately as the outside world charge at his gate?
