But is he master of his domain?
Tiger Woods, playing in front of millions of TV viewers for the first time since hitting his marriage into the rough, easily made the cut at the Masters Friday after two days of all-star-caliber golf, including his best opening round ever at the storied tournament.
Nike's comebacking golden boy heads into the weekend six strokes under par, two shots behind coleaders Ian Poulter and Lee Westwood, and tied for third place.
Whether he can hold up his end of the bargain he's made with America ("I'll keep kicking ass at golf and keep my pants zipped if you try to forget what a lousy guy I was and support me") remains to be seen, but you can bet America will be watching.
