I tf Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter Wednesday, Feb. 24, 2010 3C Tiger inal wife, Elin, and made a plea to the media fabuot beingwrong in creating a story such as that. He also criticized the media for following his 2-1/2-year-old child to school and giving the location of the school. HOOKED on GOLF He went on to say he and his JOHN K. ABENDROTH wife have a lot to talk about P.G.A. After 85 days of turmoil and questions from the world of sports and the world in general, Tiger Woods has spoken and offered a broad apology to his friends, family, associates and his fans about his "irresponsible behavior" and past attitudes. Tiger spoke about how he felt that normal rules did not apply to him and that fame and money allowed him to do what he wanted to and not what he was expected to do. He seemed very humble and in fact more humble that I suspect he has never been in his life. Tiger "felt entitled" and said that as part of a behav- ioral change he will live a life of integrity in the future. In respect to the allegations of domestic violence by his wife Elin, Tiger said there was never an such incident by his GOLF RESULTS Mt. Huff Golf Course We had our first tourna- ment for 2010. Mt. Huff Golf Course host- ed its annual Presidents Cup Tournament Monday, Feb. 15. The two-man, best-ball format brought out 30 players to en- joy a beautiful sunny day. Winning this year's event were Jerry Hobbs and Ron Christensen at 19 under. In a close second at 18 under were Gary Hughs and Dan Rooney. Longest drive went to Jordan Townsend and closest to the pin went to Jerry Hobbs. To have your golf club in- cluded in the weekly results, email the information to or fax it to 283-3952 by Friday at 3p.m. and that would be kept private. According to Tiger, his wife has said that she will accept his apology not just through words, but by his behavior. In respect to golf, Tiger said he hoped to return to golf when the time is right. When he does, he would re- turn and be more respectful to the game. He has been crit- icized by players, including Tom Watson about how he has acted not just off the golf course, but on the course. Apparently Tiger has been listening to some of his crit- ics. Another issue that Tiger addressed were the rumors that he had used performance enhancing drugs and said that there was no truth to those rumors. Tiger offered an apology to his fellow players and asked for them to be patient with him and also said the timing of the apology was not meant to deflect from the important golf event going on in Ari- zona. The theme of the event seemed to be more about his recovery from apparent ad- dictions and not about golf or promoting himself. Tiger spoke about being raised as a Buddhist and that he drifted away from that up-bringing. He intimated he would go back to some of those beliefs. After the 14-minute presenta- tion that did not include ques- tions he hugged his mother, a couple of friends including Notah Begay, the only PGA Tour player evident in the audience. John Cook and Mark O'Meara were invited to attend but both were playing in a Champions Tour event. It seemed interesting his wife Elin was not in the audi- ence and Tiger did not appear spea to be wearing a wedding ring. Tiger said after the 45 days of therapy he would return to therapy the day after this pre- sentation, was held at the PGA Tour headquarters. In a bit of irony, the Tiger Woods camp arranged for the meeting to be covered by one TV camera that would broad- cast to the outlets that wanted to carry it, and that camera feed failed about midway. After that point, a second camera covered the talk but it was a side view and not the full-face view of Tiger. The talk seemed scripted and well prepared, but it did seem to be sincere. He was humble in saying several times that he was sorry. There has been criticism the scheduling of the apology was odd with it being on the Friday of the World Championship Match Play event sponsored by a former sponsor of Tiger Woods. Apparently the timing was because of the one-week break Tiger was given from his therapy. It is hard to think that Tiger will not be back on the golf tour, and he left that open to speculation. Reportedly, he made a call to officials with the Masters asking for them to un- derstand and would hope they would invite him back. Even though he has won that prestigious, major golf championship; it is still an in- vitation that he needs to get back to Augusta National. They have apparently said he would be welcomed back. I speculate he will play at least one event prior to the Masters and make his major return at Augusta. Playing golf and getting back to that may be the best thing for him and to have his clubs do the talking and his performance on the course be what people will remember him by.
