Tiger Makes A Smart Move

Tiger Woods has finally made a good decision. Over the past years it appears that Woods has made hundreds of horrible decisions which he is paying for now. His decision to take a hiatus from golf and focus on trying to rebuild his family is the first smart move he made since he cracked up his Cadillac. Woods actually mentions “infidelity” for the first time in the statement on his website. It may be a step in the right direction for Woods and his wife to rebuild their family. Tiger’s statement:

I am deeply aware of the disappointment and hurt that my infidelity has caused to so many people, most of all my wife and children. I want to say again to everyone that I am profoundly sorry and that I ask forgiveness. It may not be possible to repair the damage I’ve done, but I want to do my best to try.

I would like to ask everyone, including my fans, the good people at my foundation, business partners, the PGA Tour, and my fellow competitors, for their understanding. What’s most important now is that my family has the time, privacy, and safe haven we will need for personal healing.

After much soul searching, I have decided to take an indefinite break from professional golf. I need to focus my attention on being a better husband, father, and person.

Again, I ask for privacy for my family and I am especially grateful for all those who have offered compassion and concern during this difficult period.

NBC’s Dateline profiled Tiger’s trouble and some of his girlfriends on Friday night. With the depth and frequency of Tiger’s affairs, it’s almost impossible to believe that those around him and his so-called friends weren’t aware of his habits. Elin Woods must be a very forgiving woman to want to try and fix an obviously broken and flawed Tiger.

Check out my advice to Tiger and Elin back in February when they were adding to their family and when Tiger’s image was that of a caring father.
