Yup, you read me right !!!   Friday’s “speech” was not an apology it was nothing more than a “washing” of those around him who enabled his conduct by making himself the sole target of criticism, but as always, I’ve looked past the facade to the true underlying aspects ...

No man in Tiger Woods’ position - one of the most readily recognizable people in sport today - could have carried on so many dalliances, trysts, or affairs without the support of his “Enablers” ... from Stevie, to his corporate people, to PGA people, to his employees, and yes, even, I maintain - Mumsie !!!

Why do I say this ???   Primarily because I did not see disapproval, disgust, or revulsion in her facial expressions nor body language ...   I saw a woman who was “sorry” her son had to go thru this ... and that makes her an "Enabler"!!!

Did is seem odd that Elin was not there next to Mumsie, but Mumsie was flanked by people professionally linked to Tiger ??? 

Is it possible that Mumsie and Elin are not one that same page these days ???   After all, how dare Elin NOT forgive her son ?!?!?

If Tiger is ever to be believed by Elin or anyone, he needs to replace his inner circle with people who:

(A) are much more capable of  “damage control” and

(B) can either take more care “enabling” him, or denying him access to his abhorrent trappings when on the road ... or for that matter, anywhere outside his home !!!
