BREAKING NEWS: Say It Ain’t So Tiger…

December 11, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

Tiger Woods will be stepping away from the game of golf.

According to his website, TigerWoods.com, golf superstar Tiger Woods will be taking a break from the game of golf to focus on his family issues.

He will also be ducking the media at all costs until this whirlwind of tabloid and blog coverage wears down.

Below is the full statement from Tiger Woods:

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.

This is horrible news for the PGA Tour who counts on Tiger’s celebrity to draw crucial television ratings and sponsorships. We’ll bring you any and all information relating to this as it becomes available.
