Tired of Tiger

All of this talk by announcers about "how much Tiger has had to go through in the last five months" = bullshit.  Tiger did not HAVE to go through this.  We've all made errors - many of us, including me, enormous ones - but where does all this sympathy for Tiger come from?  Why isn't he smiling like the luckiest man in the world with every swing, instead of angry and cussing when he is particularly frustrated, mostly ignoring the crowd - the crowd that has made him rich - when he makes a good shot? Who is this guy (and why do we care how well he does)? [Addendum - name the female in any vocation who would be cheered wildly after doing what Tiger has done to his marriage.]
