T.Woods Says Golf Made Him Cheat...(Righhhhtttt)
Tiger Woods writes an essay for Newsweek Magazine where he apologizes to fans and blames the sport of golf for some of his troubles. He said:
"Last November, everything I thought I knew about myself changed abruptly, and what others perceived about me shifted, too. 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. And even beyond accepting the consequences and responsibility, there is the ongoing struggle to learn from my failings."
Tiger goes on to link his "issues" to the sport of golf saying:
"Golf is a self-centered game, in ways good and bad. So much depends on one's own abilities. But for me, that self-reliance made me think I could tackle the world by myself. It made me think that if I was successful in golf, then I was invincible. Now I know that, no matter how tough or strong we are, we all need to rely on others.
Slowly, I'm regaining the balance that I'd lost. My healing process is far from complete, but I am beginning to appreciate things I had overlooked before. I'm learning that some victories can mean smiles, not trophies, and that life's most ordinary events can bring joy."
Isnt that what everyone says after they get caught up and return from rehab????
