Tiger Woods is Michael Jordan\'s hero!
This is a quote from Michael Jordan that is taken from the book Tiger Woods \'The
Makings of a Champion\', by Tim Rosaforte.
"I admire [Tiger] for what he\'s done thus far because for so long it was truly a
game that a lot of minorities couldn\'t play ...so in that sense he\'s carrying an
extra burden along with him, to succeed and expand across all racial barriers."
To this quote author Tim Rosaforte added,
"I admire him, too, for establishing a new plateau, a higher ground, if you will.
I really do believe he was put here for a bigger reason than just to play golf.
I don\'t think that he is a god, but I do believe that he was sent by One."
