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.
The headline on the article is simply, “Tiger Woods taking hiatus from golf.”
Well, what a story this continues to be. Somehow this statement feels more direct than his previous one. It’s less defensive. It uses the word “infidelity” instead of “transgressions.”
Who can’t be sympathetic to the phrase, “I need to focus my attention on being a better husband, father, and person”? Good luck to him, the poor sap!
