Tiger Takes a Break From His Job
Jobs are exactly what they are ... something we do to earn a living. Some of us make pennies. Some of us make hundreds. No matter the price, they are still our jobs.
Tiger Woods, on the heels of basically everything bad happening to him short of being beheaded by the Taliban, has decided to take an indefinite leave of absence from the game.
From his website ...
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.
Sounds pretty sincere from Mr. Woods.
With that said, I know one Person tHat wIll be happy about the Latest announcement.
