tiger woods*Sometimes it takes some people a big push to finally get to God.

Take Tiger Woods for example, he rose to fame quickly as a golf protege and fell hard when his complicated love life unraveled in the eyes of the public.

Now he’s found God. At least that’s what TheRoot is reporting:

As he rebuilds his public image amid a never-ending sex scandal, the world’s most celebrated golfer has started to speak more openly about his Buddhist beliefs. In a recent interview with the Golf Channel Tiger Woods said of his noticeable bracelet, “It’s Buddhist, it’s for protection and strength and I certainly need that.” Yet some have since questioned whether his newfound frankness on faith is a cynical ploy for sympathy.
