In the Tiger Woods Building at Nike’s campus, there is a Tiger Woods sculpture.
Behind the sculpture there is an over-the-top ode? screed? story? about Woods. We’re not sure what to call it, but it’s one of the more, erm, interesting things we’ve read.
Below, we have a photo of it. We didn’t get a photo of the whole thing, but the top is enough to give you an idea of what it’s all about.
Here’s a quick transcription. Remember while reading this, Tiger Woods plays golf and was revealed to be a serial cheater:
….an eruption of the sacred into the profane. Earl and Kultilda call this Tiger.
A TIME WHOSE MAN HAS COME. There are others who came before him. Mozart, Frank Lloyd Wright, Rudolf Nureyev, Van [unreadable…], Helen Keller, Michael Jordan, persons of real destiny creating order and power through nuance, living in a world where fate and freedom are promised to each other. But they weren’t smacking mid-irons into the garage net at 18 months. Who is this child? This 2-year-old novelty. This 5-year-old prodigy. The world is curious. At 8 he wins the first of six International Junior titles. Could he be the one? Stanford University thinks so. At age 15, Tiger, built like a 5-iron at six feet and 139 pounds is playing to a +4.0 handicap and a similar GPA in high school. At 16 he becomes the youngest golfer ever to play in a PGA Tour event, the 1992 Los Angeles Open. He birdies number one to post his first leaderboard score, “T. Woods -1.” It’s a prophetic debut bracketed by six USGA titles, the NCAA Championship, and three consecutive U.S. Amateur titles…
