Now, at 42, he is standing in front of the crowd again as champion, scarred and glorious, suffering as his medal. Woods may have the best explanation for the fact that hell on earth has gone through once and never broken the gold. Woods ranked 16th on the 2008 Forbes PlayersIncome List with $43.3 million, the highest ranking for golfers, followed by countless sponsors throwing olive branches.
