Sorry for the hyperbole about Tiger’s first “public appearance” since his world came apart, but damn, that’s they way folks like ESPN and the endless hordes of gossip sites are acting. It’s all because Tiger announced he would be addressing the public on Friday, offering us an apology we don’t deserve.
Rumors are, he’ll also announce his intentions concerning his golf career.
So yeah, it’s time to welcome back Tiger Woods and the coming tidal wave of news reports, reminding us of what he did, who he did and how various individuals feel about Tiger’s choices.
As if their opinion matters.
Sorry, for me, this is still a personal issue between Tiger and Elin, and if she’s willing to stand by him and accept his apology – although, that’s not quite clear — there’s not much else that needs to be said. Sure, we can use our keyboards to speculate, chastise, and make declarative statements about Woods until our fingers fall off, but that still won’t change the fact that Tiger owes us nothing.
I will say, however, that if he does come back and plays in The Masters, the media wave that follows him will make tomorrow’s look silly.
