Tiger Woods -- Admits He’s A Cheater, Taking “Indefinite Break”

(2009-12-12 14:29:46) 下一个

Tiger Woods has finally admitted his “infidelity” and tells the world he’s going to take “an indefinite break” from playing golf to “repair the damage” he’s done.

Here’s the full statement, just posted on TigerWoods.com:

open_quotesI 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.close_quotes

The psychological damage these white women do to black female children is unimaginable. It is so bad that Disney is trying to repair that damaged image in there latest production of the Princes and the Frog.

White women that think they’ve “found their black man” also product black female children from these relationships. The very children that they’ve deemed undesirable by their actions and by having this kind of relationship.

It’s just sick to have children that the world doesn’t want and discard them as trash into our orphanages. We’ve truly become a sick third world nation.

These sexual relationships are the sins of lust with total disregard for the children born and unborn and for future generations to come.

I think he should change his name to Tiger Woodie. The man’s a DOG and it’s not unusual for a celebrity of his status to stray. Ask Gene Simmons.

Hmmm I believe it was Jesus who said. He who is without sin cast the first stone. Tiger is a sinner like all of us… ALL of us. He is doing the right thing. He needs the Father’s forgiveness and Our forgiveness. It is soooo wrong to tear him up on here. If we want this nation to thrive on the pricipals for which it was founded “In God We Trust” Then we must… MUST forgive as our father has forgiven us.
And cjque you are very very racial… A person is a person regardless of color. Get over yourself…

Anyone crass enough to make the poor decisions and bad behavior of a man who defines himself racially using his entire genetic heritage: Asian, Indian, white and black, about race needs to review their motives. Tiger is a man who cheated. Period. White women don’t do psychological damage to black female children- bitter people who make race an issue do. Those black female children learn from YOU first. If you harbor resentment and have hate and bigotry festering in your soul it is YOU who hurt those children, fostering an environment of hate and bitterness. Disney is making a movie with a princess who has more skin pigmentation than most of their previous princess- it’s not the first time. Pocahontas was the first racially diverse Disney princess and a black woman was the model for her. (Vanessa Williams.) Further refuting your argument, Disney has the setting placed in New Orleans- a city that has celebrated it’s multi-ethnical and multicultural history for centuries. Put your anger and bigotry aside and look at the real truth: racism and hatred have to be taught. What are you teaching your children?

Him & His Family:

The furore is unlike any golf has seen before, but it is not the first time the sport has to adjust to life without its biggest star, the person largely responsible for the huge growth in prize money and global interest.

It was only in February that Woods returned from eight months out following reconstructive knee surgery.

Others prospered, most notably Ireland's Padraig Harrington with victories at the Open and US PGA – the only two majors played during the American's enforced lay-off.

It took Woods only three events to win again on his return, but he was unable to add to his major haul during the season and with all that was going on in his private life it is no wonder why.

His agent Mark Steinberg has also issued a statement, saying: "The entirety of someone's life is more important than just a professional career.

"What matters most is a young family that is trying to cope with difficult life issues in a secluded and caring way.

"Whenever Tiger may return to the game should be on the family's terms alone."

Tim Finchem, commissioner of the US Tour, followed Woods' statement with his first official response since his greatest asset became headline news like never before.

"His priorities are where they need to be and we will continue to respect and honour his family's request for privacy," he said in a statement.

"We look forward to Tiger's return to the PGA Tour when he determines the time is right for him."

There have been calls for the world number one to make a public confession, possibly on the Oprah Winfrey show, but as the number of alleged relationships has grown and grown he has remained behind closed doors.

More drama came on Tuesday, however, when his mother-in-law was taken to hospital – again in the early hours – complaining of stomach trouble. She was released later the same day.

The exact circumstances of his car crash remain the subject of speculation.

He was treated in hospital for cuts, but by the time he pulled out of the following week's Chevron World Challenge in California the focus had turned from his injuries to the truth or otherwise of what was going on behind the scenes.

On December 2 he said, again on his website: "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 behaviour my family deserves. I am not without faults and I am far short of perfect. I will strive to be a better person and the husband and father that my family deserves."

Woods also claimed he and his family had been "hounded" to expose intimate details and had been "dismayed" at the media scrutiny.

Meanwhile, all his many sponsors were being contacted to see how they would react to Woods being shown in a totally new and unsavoury light.
"Tiger has been part of Nike for more than a decade," the clubs and clothing manufacturer said in a statement.

"He is the best golfer in the world and one of the greatest athletes of his era. We look forward to his return to golf. He and his family have Nike's full support."

His return might well still come at the Accenture World Match Play in Arizona in February – the event in which he came back from his injury 10 months ago.

They pay him fortunes too, but they no longer have his image on the home page of its website.

Communications giant AT&T, meanwhile, commented: "We are presently
evaluating our ongoing relationship with him."

Woods last played a tournament in Australia last month, winning the 82nd title of his 13-year professional career.
