Tiger Speaks

Finally Tiger Woods came out of his self imposed exile and help a press conference to discuss his recent personal issues. This made for television event was held the PGA Tour headquarters in Ponte Vedra Fl. Tiger Woods and his team hand selected the attendees including the media. The key point was that Woods would not take any questions from the media in attendance prompting the Golf Writers Association of America to boycott the event.

As I watched the press conference Tiger appeared to be very sincere and contrite. Despite the fact that the statement seemed rehearsed and forced at times. He admitted his wrongdoings and apologized to all the people he hurt including the young people who saw him as a role model. He also defended his wife Elin insisting that there was never any incidents of domestic violence in their marriage.

Regardless of whether you believe Tiger Woods this is still a private matter between him and his wife. Plain and simple. I realize that he is a public figure but at the end of the day he has to make amends with his wife.

I just want to see him back on the golf course. Tiger said there is no timeline for his return to professional golf. I hope that he returns and returns soon. Golf needs him and I want to him resume his quest to surpass Jack Nicklaus as the all time Majors winner.
