The fairy tale family - golf god, blonde beauty, and two adorable children - made for the media and subject of public adulation, is over. Now divorced, Tiger Woods and Elin Nordgren will still try to meet their parental duties, but the image of the perfect modern celebrity family has shattered.
The career of the golf god is also in doubt as Tiger struggles to perform at any level near his past performance. His recent play has been far from the super-human heroics on the course that used to fascinate us. Instead we overdosed on media coverage of his extra-marital sex life to the point of wanting to hear no more.
The next chapter of this tale will aslo be fascinating to follow.
Let's hope it ends better than the last.
