Out of the Woods, Tiger emerges

Tiger Woods finally did come clean today. In a statement posted on his Web site, Tiger doesn’t specifically reference his car accident but he does appear to admit to the extra marital affair that’s been rumored.

As part of a long statement, he writes: “I have let my family down and I regret those transgressions with all of my heart. I have not been true to my values and the behavior my family deserves.”

As I had mentioned in my previous post, Tiger has now stepped into the vacuum of information his silence had created. And while the news reporting will continue, his admission will slow down the feeding frenzy and cause this issue to go away much sooner.

What happens next in his family isĀ between Tiger and his wife, but I do believe this is the beginning of Tiger being able to move forward publicly. And assuming there are no more bombs to drop, this will be a footnote in his storied career.
