Start with the Globe staffer's explanation, over at Esquire.com, of why Tigergate should come as no surprise. Then read Pierce's 1997 profile of Woods, which does indeed anticipate Woods' fall from grace:
"I believe that Tiger will break the gospel"--i.e., the myth of Woods as a heaven-sent superhuman--"before the gospel breaks him.
Yesterday at Mediaite, Stephanie Wei noted that Golf Digest--which sponsors Tiger Woods--was giving his car crash and/or domestic-violence incident a pretty wide berth, relying on wire stories and avoiding any commentary from its own writers.
Given this sympathetic (and vague) column by Bill Fields, Wei's description is already slightly dated.
