Why Tiger Woods Needs To Surface Soon

Mark Pepponi@gmaster1968Correspondent IFebruary 16, 2010

LOS ANGELES, CA - FEBRUARY 3:  Former adult film actress Veronica Siwik-Daniels (aka Joslyn James), who claims to have had a long-term intimate relationship with golf icon Tiger Woods, appears at a press conference at the offices of attorney Gloria Allred on February 3, 2010 in Los Angeles, California. Allred and Siwik-Daniels are calling for the end of the production of golf balls bearing an image of Siwik in the product series, 'Tail of the Tiger - The Mistress Collection'. Allred argues that putting the face of a woman on a ball which golfers hit with full force could result in marks on the image that might resemble bruises and may lead to inappropriate jokes about hitting women. James says that she loved Woods and had reason to believe that he loved her. She has been in seclusion and has not talked to the press until now.  (Photo by David McNew/Getty Images)

For the love of Pete, Tiger, Please.

Come out and defend yourself. 

Yet another woman, this time an adult film star, alleges that she had a three year affair with Eldrick leading to not just one, but TWO pregnancies. 


This whole saga is beginning to be painful to watch as Tiger, by his own avoidance of the media, has opened himself up to a mudslide of accusations from every corner of the world, or at least every corner of every strip club and cocktail lounge.

Once regarded as mentally tough, gritty, painfully focused, Tiger seems to be slipping further into an abyss of torture that he may never recover from. We still don't know how many more pockets he will have to grease to put this one to bed, no pun intended.

However, the one thing that Tiger can do to help himself and stem the landslide of career suicide is very simple:

Tiger, please appear and address this drama once and for all. Tell us what happened and why. Assemble those who you will tell your story to and let it be an end-all story. Make no bones about it that you will air it out once and once only. 

The Masters might be a great place to do this since you'll be surrounded by friends and security, and credentials will be tight. TMZ will most likely not be your audience. This will allow you to give the golfing press the information that they need to know.

Say it once, tell them that you will only elaborate on it once. Stay there all day long and answer every question. After that, move on to repairing, if possible, your marriage, image, and if you're a man of faith, then your peace with God.

I believe in redemption. The time for you to come out is near. With every additional notch in the bedpost comes a more perverse and bizarre twist. Allegedly having unprotected sex with a Porn star? Seriously?

Golf needs a redeemed Tiger Woods. Appear now and tell us your story. You may just find out that we are good listeners. After all, I am not casting the first stone, I know that.
