Tiger Woods has emerged from seclusion. After the golf star was spotted jogging, playing golf with friends and leaving his Florida home with wife Elin, he appeared this morning in front of the media, for his first public statement since the Thanksgiving episode. His beautiful wife, Elin, was not by his side, and he stood at the podium solo, while his mother sat front row. Here are some highlights from his emotional speech:
“I was unfaithful. I had affairs. I cheated. What I did was not acceptable.'
As for coming back to the PGA Tour Woods said: “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.”
'Elin and I have started the process of discussing the damage caused by my behavior. As Elin pointed out to me, my real apology to her will not come in the form of words. It will come from my behavior over time... What we say to each other will remain between the two of us. I am also aware of the pain my behavior has caused to those of you in this room. I have let you down. And I have let down my fans.'
He addressed the issue of domestic violence:
'Elin never hit me that night or any other night. There has never been an episode of domestic violence in our marriage. Ever. Elin has shown enormous grace and poise throughout this ordeal. Elin deserves praise, not blame.'
