Tiger Woods Was Buddhist

Great to hear, though I'm a bit skeptical... I've quoted him before as saying he didn't believe it humanly possible to follow the Buddha's path, which is perhaps the reason he fell off it in the first place? Anyway, here's the quote of the day:

Part of following this path for me is Buddhism, which my mother taught me at a young age. People probably don't realize it, but I was raised a Buddhist, and I actively practiced my faith from childhood until I drifted away from it in recent years. Buddhism teaches that a creation of things outside ourselves causes an unhappy and pointless search for security. It teaches me to stop following every impulse and to learn restraint. Obviously, I lost track of what I was taught.
