Tiger Woods is blaming the sport that made his career for his unfaithful ways.
Nearly a year after news of his numerous affairs broke, the golfer pegged the source of his infidelity in a contrite Newsweek essay. So what does he feel lead him to cheat on his ex-wife Elin Nordegren?
"Golf is a self-centered game," Woods stated. "That self-reliance made me think I could tackle the world by myself."
Translation: Don’t hate the player, hate the game that made him famous…or something like that.
Tiger’s extramarital affairs came to light after he crashed his car into a tree early in the morning after Thanksgiving. The pro golfer said he still hasn’t fully recovered.
"The physical pain from that car accident has long healed. But the pain in my soul is more complex and unsettling,” he wrote before commenting on his many alleged mistresses. "Opportunists are trying still to cash in on my troubles, no matter how irresponsible or ridiculous their claims may be."
Tiger’s tone was a little more upbeat as he announced his decision to become more active on Twitter.
“What’s up everyone. Finally decided to try out twitter!” he wrote yesterday.
The verified account was set up back in June, but he hadn’t said much until now. It seems he plans to change that very soon, stating, “Yep, it’s me. I think I like this twitter thing. You guys are awesome. Thanks for all the love.”
His inaugural random thought was, “The best part about phone interviews is getting to wear shorts.”
