That could be part of why he chose the Masters Tournament -- they have more control of the "gallery" than do others.

Their slogan is "A tradition unlike any others" -- but their tradition is rather a lot like that of the [apartheid] Jim Crow South. Not long ago, Woods would not have been allowed on the grounds (except maybe as a dishwasher).

 Interesting question, Martin.
Rogoff has a chapter called "Interdependence and autonomy" about
the false dichotomizing that goes on in the psych literature on
individualistic and collectivist societies that your remark about autonomy
and alienation brings to mind.

lonliness tells me i've sinned."

I heard Tiger Woods say something like that a short time ago. Now he's
returning to the Masters Tournament.

Could there be something to the fact that, unlike most professional
athletes, Tiger Woods is nobody's EMPLOYEE. Rather he is the OWNER of his
own franchise.  See
