The shady side of Tiger Woods

By  | 


Days later, Woods became much more clear on what he was sorry for doing, switching from “transgressions” to flat-out “infidelity” — and was sure to include his sponsors in his mea culpa.

“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,” he wrote on his website (via People).

He went on to ask for understanding from “everyone, including my fans, the good people at my foundation, business partners, the PGA Tour, and my fellow competitors.” “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.”

Gatorade, AT&T, Accenture and Tag Heuer went on to drop Woods as a sponsor, though, curiously, Nike kept him on.
