Great Quotes: Phil Knight

Knight, Nike’s co-founder, spoke out about the Tiger Woods situation in a recent interview.

“I think he’s been really great…When his career is over, you’ll look back on these indiscretions as a minor blip, but the media is making a big deal out of it right now.”

— Phil Knight, co-founder of Nike

It’s going to be interesting to see how history judges Tiger for his infidelity. Some are saying that it’s the biggest story of the decade, and it’s hard to disagree. Will Tiger be defined by this like Mike Vick is defined by dogfighting? No, I don’t think so. Tiger is too good at what he does to be defined by this. Once he starts dominating the tour again, this will fade somewhat into the background. But Knight is probably being pretty optimistic when he says it will be a “minor blip” in his career.

What happens if Tiger struggles when he returns to golf? He has to get back to being the #1 golfer in the world or this story will follow him around forever.
