Tiger Woods To Leave Professional Golf Amid Growing Scandal

December 11, 2009

U.S. (ChattahBox) – Tiger Wood’s many affairs have had more than an effect on his marriage, it has also had a great deal of consequences for his career. In a new statement, he has announced his intention to leave pro golf.

According to a statement released on his website, Tiger will be leaving the sport to focus his attention on being “a better husband, father, and person,” and will be leaving for an undisclosed amount of time. The new statement below:

“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.”

    Nobody’s perfect. Somebody should give him another chance. He’s a great golfer and he had said his peace. Let’s just hope that healing follows soon with his family.
