Tiger Woods press conference live reminded viewers that the golf star had not spoken since an accident outside his house in late November. Since that time various reports have surfaced about his infidelity and he apologized for his behavior in the Tiger Woods apology video today.
Tiger Woods press conference live was expected to answer the question of when he would return to the game he has dominated. Some people believe that he will return before the Masters in April where he would be the golf betting favorite but the Tiger Woods apology video did not answer that question. "I do plan to return to golf one day. I just don't know when that day will be. I don't rule out it will be this year.” Tiger said, “When I do return, I need to make my behavior more respectful of the game.”
Tigers statement focused on his poor behavior and his apology. "I was unfaithful. I had affairs. I cheated.” Tigers statement said, “What I did was unacceptable and I am the only person to blame." Tiger Woods speech today went about 15 minutes. “I stopped living by the core values that I was taught to believe in. I knew my actions were wrong, but I convinced myself that normal rules didn't apply. I never thought about who I was hurting. Instead, I thought only about myself. I ran straight through the boundaries that a married couple should live by. I thought I could get away with whatever I wanted to.” Tiger said, “I felt that I had worked hard my entire life and deserved to enjoy all the temptations around me. I felt I was entitled. Thanks to money and fame, I didn't have to go far to find them.”
Tigers statement had him blaming no one but himself and he was very clear about that. “I was wrong. I was foolish. I don't get to play by different rules. The same boundaries that apply to everyone apply to me. I brought this shame on myself.” Tiger Woods speech today said, “I hurt my wife, my kids, my mother, my wife's family, my friends, my foundation, and kids all around the world who admired me.”
Tigers statement was also about the future for him but it did not relate to golf. “I've had a lot of time to think about what I've done. My failures have made me look at myself in a way I never wanted to before. It's now up to me to make amends, and that starts by never repeating the mistakes I've made.” Tiger said, “It's up to me to start living a life of integrity.” He also asked everyone to forgive him. "Today I want to ask for your help. I ask you to find room in your heart to one day believe in me again." Tiger said.
