Updated-Tiger Woods Apologizes..Leave My Wife And Kids Alone!

| February 19, 2010 | 0 Comments

Says he is sorry for cheating on family, sorry to his fans and his investors but he cautions the media to leave his family alone. He states that he plans to return to golf but just doesn’t know exactly when. Asks people to find in their heart to forgive him. Check out the live blog by Cameron Morfit:

11:18 No timetable for return! Doesn’t know! Could be this year! Holy moly. Woods could be out the whole of 2010. So much for the Masters, so much for the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach, the British Open at St. Andrews. What a year it might have been. And now he’s done, goodbye, Tiger.

11:10 “It’s up to me to start living a life of integrity.” True enough. “It’s not what you achieve in life that matters, it’s what you overcome.” Okay, I guess. Now he’s apologizing to the kids, to the parents of the kids. Mentions 45-day rehab without specifics about what type of rehab, then says ominously, “I have a long way to go.” When will he return???

11:08 A few near-teary moments so far, but now anger. Woods refuting allegations of Elin beating him up with a golf club. Angry Tiger! And now we’re back from the anger. “I stopped living by the core values that I believe in,” he says. Okay, that’s better. “I thought only about myself.” “I thought I could get away with whatever I wanted to.” “I felt I was entitled.” Yes, yes and yes.

11:05 Not hearing anything new so far. Lots of mentions of “behavior” but no specifics on what his plans are. Didn’t take long to bring up the foundation, did it? Where is this going?

10:59 Brandel Chamblee makes a good point that the Woods came had to know that the timing of this non press conference would get blowback, coming in the middle of the Accenture. It’s just more fodder for those, like me, who think this crisis has been horribly mishandled from the start.

10:54 Interesting comment from DRM about the GWAA boycott: “Woods has no credibility at this point on any subject other than golf. He has been proven to be a fraud. The details of his personal life have been covered in-depth for the last 3 months by the tabloids. Given that no one trusts a word that comes out of his mouth, why exactly do you guys want to ask him questions especially when you already know the answers to 99% of them?”

Good question, and here’s the way I’m thinking about this non-boycott boycott of this non-press conference press conference: It’s a statement, meant to convey that Woods and his flunkies can no longer set the agenda, can no longer jerk around the press and have us follow along in hopes of any morsels they deign to provide. It’s like strenuously arguing a call in the NBA, knowing that you’re not likely to get a reversal on that call but that you might get more favorable calls in the future.

10:52 When will Tiger play next? Good question. I would guess Bay Hill, but I would also guess we’ll know for sure in about 20 minutes. I’m also guessing we’ll know exactly nothing more about that early-morning car crash, the exact state of Tiger’s marriage, and many more things.

10:50 svparboy makes this point: “If i had been caught doing what tiger has been caught doing, i would be scared sh*&less about facing a large group of people and trying to explain my actions. he’s doing only what any person would want to do – control the environment in which he has to admit he screwed up. all the golf writers should be concerned with is when tiger will play golf next. he’s made the golf industry what it is today and that’s all that is important – when will he play next?”

10:48 cathy carr said… “The only one who has to forgive Tiger Woods is his wife. He did not cheat on me or you. This is his life and we should not put him under a microscope. He is a great golf player and thats all we need to know and support.” Well, I respectfully disagree on this one. If Woods had simply been a golfer, that would be true, but unfortunately he became a worldwide brand. He cultivated the brand, as did those around him, to make hundreds of millions of dollars. That’s what’s behind the outrage. We all felt duped, and with good reason.

10:39 Just got an e-mail from Durham, N.H. stating the following: “Nick Smith, assistant professor of philosophy at the University of New Hampshire and author of “I Was Wrong: The Meaning of Apologies” (2008, Cambridge University Press) is available to discuss golfer Tiger Woods’ anticipated public apology this morning and apologies by public figures in general.” That’s nice.

10:35 What will Tiger be wearing for golf’s fifth major? A suit and tie, one assumes. Please, no corporate logos. Will Friend of Tiger Michael Jordan be there, as rumored? Will MJ wear a suit?

10:32 Golf Channel has produced a slick lead-in to its 30-minute faux pre-game show. Based on everything I’m seeing so far, I’m calling this non press conference golf’s fifth major.

10:30 Welcome to the madness, a live blog of a non-press conference thousands of miles away that the Golf Writers Association of America has already boycotted. The immediate response to this apparent first stop on the Tiger Woods apology tour makes me wonder if he hasn’t finally run out of goodwill, even among the golf writers and fellow Tour players. The strict guidelines, the timing of his big announcement during the Accenture, it all looked like a terrible false-start. We’ll see if the AP report is true, that he’s simply headed back to rehab. I keep thinking of an exchange I had with someone recently, can’t remember who. Me: Are we killing the golden goose? Friend: No, I think the golden goose pretty much committed suicide.

Looks like Tiger Woods has a lot of explaining to do as it has been reported that he was involved in a car accident outside his home. Rumors are floating over the internet that he may in fact be the “victim” of domestic violence at the hands of his wife Elin Woods. One of his neighbors called 911 to say that there was an accident outside his house.

 

What’s more bizarre is the fact that Elin told police that she had to use a golf club to break his rear car window to free him from the vehicle. Some have speculated that she caught him cheating and decided to put a can of “whip ass” on him from returning home after 2:00 AM in the morning.

Elin Woods is a former Swedish model, She and Tiger have two children together.
We sure hope these two work it out as this would definately be a huge payday for his wife if she divorces him.
Ching ching!

Looks like Tiger has to convince more than his fans that he did actually have an accident because the Orlando police are now investigating whether or not this is a case of domestic violence. They have been trying to interview Tiger about the “accident” but under advisement from his high powered attorney he has not given them an official statement. Tiger released this statement via his website”

This is a private matter and I want to keep it that way. Although I understand there is curiosity, the many false, unfounded and malicious rumors that are currently circulating about my family and me are irresponsible.

The only person responsible for the accident is me. My wife, Elin, acted courageously when she saw I was hurt and in trouble. She was the first person to help me. Any other assertion is absolutely false.

This incident has been stressful and very difficult for Elin, our family and me. I appreciate all the concern and well wishes that we have received. But, I would also ask for some understanding that my family and I deserve some privacy no matter how intrusive some people can be.

TMZ is reporting that the Orlando police department is seeking a search warrant to obtain Tiger’s hospital records as this may indicate whether he was under the influence of drugs or were the injuries indicative of an actual car accident or signs of an assault. We at HHE will keep you posted as this story develops.

UPDATED

We know Tiger Woods is “Superman” of the golf course but I doubt seriously if he is able to fight off STD’s by not protecting himself while having random sexual relationships with what is believed to be over nine women.

Jaimee Grubbs — a 24-year-old cocktail waitress who broke the news to Us Weekly that she had a 31-month affair with Tiger Woods — says the golfer, 33, never wanted to use protection.

“He didn’t use a condom,” says Grubbs, who adds that Woods also didn’t ask if she was on birth control, either. “It wasn’t even discussed. He just never used one.”

Apparently, he also didn’t use condoms while bedding 33-year-old restaurant manager Mindy Lawton, according to Lawton’s sister, Lynn. “She said he never wore condoms,” Lynn told British tabloid, News of the World. “I was so worried she might catch a disease, especially as we suspected he was promiscuous.”
