Woods: Very concerned
about his reputation

Special to Page 2

Tiger Woods was arguably the most dominant athlete of 2000.

But what does Woods' signature say about his personality? We asked handwriting expert Bart Baggett to analyze Woods' autograph and tell us what it says about golf's all-time leading money-winner.

Here's what Baggett found:

General notes: Woods' signature indicates that he is clearly the best lover in this group of athletes that Page 2 asked me to analyze. It also shows that he is very passionate and honest.

  The elegant fluidity of movement at the base of the "g" is typical of smooth talkers, great dancers and good writers.

  The second stroke of the "W" is higher than the first. This indicates a slight fear of ridicule. He's very self conscious and concerned about his reputation.

  The tall "d" indicates that his public image is very important to him.

  The strong downstroke in the "s" in Woods shows both physical and mental determination.

Bart Baggett is one of the leading experts on handwriting analysis in the nation. You can learn more about Baggett's analysis at The autographs in this package were provided to Page 2 by The Sports Collectors Digest Standard Catalog of Sports Autographs by Krause Publications, 2000.
