Tiger’s doing the right thing

he’s quitting golf for the time being to save his marriage.   If only more politicians and dare I say pastors would take cue and follow his lead.  This act of courage on Tiger’s part shows he cares and is humble enough to admit he committed infedielity and needs to correct that. 

Here’s his staement in full:

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.

Well, done Tiger.  Blessings to you as you work to do the right thing.  To the other leaders in America who are cheating on their spouses, will you take cue and do the right thing?  Please do.

  1. Tiger is doing the right thing? No he isn’t. He is protecting his image and brand! People like him DO NOT change so quickly (if ever without Christ). This is all a very carefully constructed media plan to to get him through it. These are the same people who hid his indiscretions for years!. It is easy to “do the right thing’ when you get caught out. He isn’t sorry he did it, he is sorry that he was caught!

    Sorry Brian, there is NO redeeming value in this man!

    • mark – well now, i mean…. but…. wouldn’t this be true of anyone who gets caught? at least he is quitting golf (though probably only until the next masters in April, when he’ll need more money) – most politicians who get caught (even many pastors) won’t hardly even do that much.

  2. Personally, I don’t think a person has to quit their job for these reasons, unless, like you said, they hold a higher office. If a politician gets caught having an affair then they could probably stay in the job. If it is a ‘tiger like’ series of affairs there is obviously a problem that seriously needs to be addressed.
