Will Tiger come back?
The past two weeks must have been like hell on earth for the most famous golfer on the planet. The news that Tiger Woods,33 crashed his SUV into a fire hydrant and a tree at 2:25 am in front of his multi-million Isleworth, Florida home broke like wildfire across the world. It was alleged that he had a fight with his Swedish wife, Elin Nordegren, 29 about Tiger having an affair.
He was charged and fined $164 by the authorities for careless driving. That amount is spare change to him. Even the SUV that he wrecked would be just one of the number cars he have. But the real damage was to his reputation and most importantly his marriage.
For the past 15 years, Tiger has always say little to the press and let his golf do the talking for him. Tiger would always try to keep his personal life out of the eyes and ears of the public that put him in high esteem. People will be in awe of his presence for his elegance, precision and smart. But no more. Now his reputation as a "good guy" is forever ripped to shreds. Now he looks sloppy, dirty and dumb.
Last Friday, Tiger made a statement on his official website www.tigerwoods.com that read, " 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". He goes to add on, " After much soul searching, I have decided to take an indefinite break from professional golf. I need to focus my attention to being a better husband, father and person". I personally think this is the smartest decision that he ever made on or off the golf course.
It has emerged since then that Tiger have been having several extra-marital affairs. All the "birdies" that he have put in have come out and told their stories. Text messages, videos and short stories are being told by there money grabbing girls that don't realized that the happiness of a young family is in danger. Greed is the main order of the day for these slutty girls.

Tiger's decision to take an indefinite break would be a huge loss to the game of golf but when push comes to shove, the happiness of his two young children, Sam Woods and Charlie Woods, and also Elin's are the most important. Tiger has made money from the game and I personally think that he has loss the love for the game. He will need all the focus that won him all those major, trophies, money and accolades to rebuild his reputation and importantly the trust between him and Elin.

So, I applaud Tiger's decision to focus on what that really matters. I'll raise my glass to him for that.
