How does a professional athlete like Tiger Woods all of a sudden say, "I'm going to be a designer?" Is it ego? You don't see football players designing stadiums.
So tennis players design clothes...ask the Williams sisters how that's working out for them. I'm not saying Tiger has nothing to offer. I'm sure he has a point of view based on his experiences - which is another way of saying, "I'll copy someone else's design and stamp my name on it."
There are some, maybe a few...ok, one player who can design golf courses, and even he's smart enough to partner with somebody who actually does the work - of course I'm speaking of Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw.
"How do we protect ourselves from Tiger?" The answer is simple: Hire Rees Jones. After a couple of years, when the novelty has worn off, Rees Jones will bulldoze the Tiger Tracks and make them golf courses.
