Tiger Woods Is Entering The Best Phase Of His Career Whether You Believe It Or Not

Tiger Woods is the greatest of the greats.

Tiger Woods Is Entering The Best Phase Of His Career Whether You Believe It Or Not

Tiger Woods. A name invoking many things depending on who you ask. Some would think incredible golfer, some would think ew what a pig, some would think he's past his prime, some would think "doesn't he do 'roids?", and others would think "does he even play still?"

I am here to say with a resounding yes, TIGER IS BACK! Now you might be thinking, yes Liam, he's been back for a while now; along with having a plethora of back issues. Simply in terms of net worth and career earnings (from endorsements and the course), Tiger blows away the competition, including legends of the day such as Bobby Jones, Jack Nicklaus, Trent Jones Jr., and Arnold Palmer.

In case you had any doubts to this claim, Nike, the world's largest athletic apparel maker, still emblazons the classic "TW" logo on everything from shirts to hats to golf balls to golf shoes. This is where a large portion of Tiger's income comes from; he is nearing a PNW (personal net worth of 1 BILLION)! This makes him one of the highest paid athletes in all of history, which is fairly interesting considering that golf at one point was written off as a dying sport.

In the late 90's, golf wasn't that fun to watch, until TW came on to the scene and captivated the global golf audience for many years, then, about four to five years ago amid personal sex scandal and back injuries, almost saw his career on the course slip away. However, TW would not even consider letting this happen. Even though it looked like Tiger was giving up on the game that he helped build, nothing could be further from the truth.

An impressive come back in the recent years, even by Tiger Standards, and an impressive series of recent accolades on the course will forever cement Tiger Woods as the best player in the history of golf and be a household name for decades to come.

Yep, that's right hopefully, as long as I'm still alive, I'll be able to tell my great-grandson, Liam Edward Lindy III, about the forever-glorious Tiger Woods.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
