This is the dumbest thing he can do right now. And to tell the truth, I wouldn’t be surprised if the PGA asked him to take time-off, he accepted the notion, and decided to say it was his decision. This is purely D-U-M-B!!!!
He needs to hold a press conference of some sorts and clear this sh*t up A.S.A.P. Whomever is in his camp, the people advising Tiger throughout all of this, need to sit him down and explain the importance of him sitting with someone and dong a one-on-one interview. The longer he continues to give statements through his website like this one below, the worst it’s going to get.
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.
I’m sorry Tiger, this is hard for me to do, but I have to give you the award for Moron of the Week with this move.
