The golfer apologizes for the pain he has caused his family in an article he wrote for ‘Newsweek’ — should he be forgiven?
Tiger Woods is finally addressing his numerous affairs and infidelity in an article he has written for Newsweek and apologizing for the horrible times he has put his family through over this past year. Tiger writes, “I can never truly repair the damage I’ve done, especially to my family. But I can keep trying.”
The golfer also notes, “Giving my son, Charlie, a bath, for example, beats chipping another bucket of balls. Making mac and cheese for him and his sister, Sam, is better than dining in any restaurant. Sharing a laugh watching cartoons or reading a book beats channel-surfing alone. Some nights now, it’s just me and the kids, an experience that’s both trying and rewarding.”
Tiger and former wife Elin Nordegren divorced earlier this year, with Tiger paying her an estimated $110 million. Elin is now auctioning off the $2.5 million worth of jewelry Tiger gifted her during their relationship.
Tiger ultimately notes, “The physical pain from that car accident has long healed. But the pain in my soul is more complex and unsettling; it has been far more difficult to ease—and to understand. But this much is obvious now: my life was out of balance, and my priorities were out of order. I made terrible choices and repeated mistakes. I hurt the people whom I loved the most.”
