Tiger Woods was Pulling Our Tail
Naughty Tiger, Shame on Him
According to an article written by Jay Busbee back on 11-19-2009, on Devil Ball Golf, Tiger Woods was asked about a reported accident that h was a part of. He was quoted as saying "As you all know, I had a single-car accident earlier this week, and sustained some injuries. I have some cuts, bruising and right now, I'm pretty sore. This situation is my fault, and it's obviously embarrassing to my family and me. I’m human and I'm not perfect. I will certainly make sure this doesn't happen again. This is a private matter and I want to keep it that way. Although I understand there is curiosity, the many false, unfounded and malicious rumors that are currently circulating about my family and me are irresponsible.”
The reference in his statement to “false, unfounded and malicious rumors” involved a story published the prior week in the National Enquirer that stated that Tiger Woods, while still married to Elin Nordegren, had been seeing a New York nightclub hostess, and they were recently traveling together in Melbourne Australia, when Woods competed in the Australian Masters. The woman, Rachel Uchitel, denied having an affair with Woods when contacted by The Associated Press. However,Uchitel hired herself a decent attorney, Gloria Allred.
He may have drove erratically, just not with his 3-wood
Tiger Woods and his wife, Elin, had three scheduled meetings with the Florida Highway Patrol, and canceled all three times. Either Woods or his attorney, Mark NeJame, canceled the meetings. Woods was planning to give the police a statement. Meanwhile, all that the police were able to obtain were Woods’ driver’s license, registration and insurance, which was required by law for such accidents.
I know he had asked for privacy, but gosh darn it! I was curious why there was such a hub-bub over nothing? Over nothing? I don't think so.
I am sorry, but my curiosity was aroused. If there was nothing to hide, why spend all your time making statements that allude that you are hiding something? There are 911 tapes that have been released. Yet even the release of the 911 tape and Woods’ statement failed to answer many questions. Where was he going at that early morning hour of 2:30am? Why were both rear windows of his Cadillac Escalade smashed in? If this was just an embarrassing mistake and bad judgment pulling out of his driveway, why didn't he speak with the state troopers to help end this investigation and all the hype surrounding the incident?
Not a happy ending, or was it?
We were staring at a best case scenario in which Tiger Woods public image would change from a once in a lifetime Golf Hero with a sterling reputation to a multiple time cheater. It turned out that by Dec. 11, 2009, two weeks after Woods’ infamous accident, the number of known mistresses he had been involved with was up to 14 women. So what did we learn? ;
- Tiger Woods cheated on his wife.
- A cast aside wife smashed in the windows of his Cadillac Escalade.
- That he had more than one mistress.
The damage had been done to his once, gleaming public profile. Even if you wanted to give him the benefit of the doubt, one thing was certain. Tiger had joined the list of wealthy, pampered athletes. No longer would he be the Golden Child.
As you probably know, he took time off from golf tours to work on his marriage, but his efforts were too little, too late. Nordegren and Woods finalized their divorce in Panama City, Florida, on August 23, 2010. Oh yeah, she did receive a $100 million settlement from the divorce. Today, Woods golf game is in shambles due to his numerous injuries and self-inflicted chaos with his entourage, and Elin has been linked to famous beaus and even dated billionaires
Elin and Tiger have a friendly relationship and continue to share custody of their daughter Sam,6 and son Charlie,5. Maybe money can buy happiness.
