Poor Elin. This is another example of someone having way too much.
Too much money, too much recognition, just too too much.
And it looks like he may have tossed his marriage and children away with his actions.
A serial adulterer. I am pretty sure he will announce soon that he is a sex addict and needs help.
I hope the marriage survives.
It’s a good thing he is taking a leave from golfing to get his personal life in order. I hope he can save his marriage.
I’ve also read that he has come clean to Elin about everything. I hope that this is a true statement.
Tiger Woods to Take Indefinite Leave From Professional Golf
Friday, December 11, 2009
June 16, 2008: Tiger Woods’ wife, Elin Nordegren, rides next to him after he won the U.S. Open championship at Torrey Pines Golf Course in San Diego.
JACKSONVILLE, Florida — Tiger Woods said Friday he is taking an indefinite leave from golf to work on saving his marriage, using the word “infidelity” for the first time in a statement posted on his Web site.
“After much soul searching, I have decided to take an indefinite break from professional golf,” Woods said. “I need to focus my attention on being a better husband, father, and person.”
The announcement came two weeks after a car accident that set in motion a shocking downfall for the world’s No. 1 player, which has included sordid allegations of numerous extramarital affairs. One woman even shared a voicemail she said Woods left her two nights before his Nov. 27 accident.
Woods has not been seen in public since the accident.
“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,” Woods said. “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.”
How long Woods will stay away from golf was unclear.
A year ago, he was out of golf for eight months while recovering from reconstructive knee surgery, and television ratings dropped 50 percent during his absence.
