One of the greatest golfers ever has made one of the greatest sports comebacks of all time. It’s an epic, all-American story, celebrated with thunderous applause by everyone from Serena Williams to President Trump.

Tiger Woods is 43 years old with a receding hairline, and he hasn’t won a major title since 2008, the year before an extended break from golf. Yet, he just won the Masters Tournament, taking home his fifth green jacket after many speculated he’d never win a title again.

Now that Woods is back, Trump said he plans to award him with the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

As a millennial who doesn’t follow golf, I’m happy for Woods to make his return. He was the only golfer whose name I knew growing up, except for Phil Mickelson, sort of (“that guy playing against Tiger Woods”). But as a non-golf fan, my most memorable thoughts on Woods were shaped by the series of scandals he underwent a decade ago.

I was in middle school when Woods won his last major victory. That was in 2008, at the U.S. Open, and by the fall of 2009 the National Enquirer published a story alleging Woods had been cheating on his wife. Two days later, Woods crashed his car into a tree outside his house after his wife appears to have attacked it with a golf club in response to the affair.

It was juicy, it was scandalous, and it was devastating to hear the golfer admit in December that he had been cheating on his wife and would take a break from golf. Companies such as Accenture, AT&T, and Gatorade dropped their sponsorships with Woods, and he checked into a health facility for sex addiction.

Later, at a news conference, he apologized for his multiple affairs, framing his infidelity as an affront to the sport he had dominated. “When I do return,” he said, “I need to make my behavior more respectful to the game.”

That wasn’t the end of his troubles, though. Woods returned to golf with middling performances further hampered by multiple injuries. In 2017, he was arrested for driving under the influence.

For a decade, Woods’ legacy has been defined more by his personal struggles than his professional success. On Sunday, that changed.

In a column for the Wall Street Journal, sportswriter Jason Gay argues that “it’s a mistake to simply rev up the nostalgia machine and act like Tiger Woods is back to being Tiger Woods.” Now that he’s winning again, we have to let Woods be human, and “we like him more because of it.”

Woods’ win this week marks a turning point in his career, and hopefully we can continue to celebrate his professional success without misunderstanding his personal fallibility. Being anyone’s superhero is dangerous, and the former No. 1 player in the world knows how fame will mess with your head.

“I thought I could get away with whatever I wanted to,” Woods said at his 2010 news conference. “I felt that I had worked hard my entire life and deserved to enjoy all the temptations around me. I felt I was entitled, and thanks to money and fame, I didn't have to go far to find them.”

The world will be tempted to forget Woods' past and celebrate him as an eternal legend, but we can celebrate his success while understanding that he’s flawed. Woods, like everyone else, is human. He just has more green jackets than most.
