Tiger Woods finished fourth in a PGA tournament this past weekend. He’s back. Or is he? Tiger’s last win came in 2013 at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

A Bonhoeffer Poem for Tiger Woods

It’s been a few days since the Tiger Woods’ car accident and it’s safe to say that Woods is just like the rest of us–a tangled web of self-contradiction and deceit.
