Yesterday the Sun reported that Elin Nordegren had given Tiger Woods an ultimatum. If he wanted to save their marriage after his seemingly endless cheating scandal, he would have to take a leave from golf and focus on repairing the damage he’s done.
“They have agreed to try and rebuild their marriage, but Elin will be the one calling the shots. It will be a long time before he’s travelling the globe playing golf unless Elin’s by his side.
“Tiger will have to work long and hard to get her to trust him again. Quitting golf shows he is willing to sacrifice something he loves so much to protect his family.”
And now that’s exactly what he’s done, announcing the move less than an hour ago on his website.
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.
I would like to ask everyone, including my fans, the good people at my foundation, business partners, the PGA Tour, and my fellow competitors, for their understanding. What’s most important now is that my family has the time, privacy, and safe haven we will need for personal healing.
After much soul searching, I have decided to take an indefinite break from professional golf. I need to focus my attention on being a better husband, father, and person.
Again, I ask for privacy for my family and I am especially grateful for all those who have offered compassion and concern during this difficult period.
ABC News says Tiger is on his way to Sweden so his now uninterrupted ass kicking can begin. Aw this poor bastard. Why Sweden? He’ll be surrounded by the same kind of blonds he’s been banging for 5 years. This is like locking up a bear in a cage filled with pots of honey.
