Liveblog: What did you think of Tiger Woods's apology? Add to ...



[Comment From Robert Robert : ]

With regard to the question about when he'll return to golf - I think it will be a huge statement that he's serious about rehabilitating himself if he's not back for the Masters.



[Comment From clint clint : ]

Leave him and his family alone. It is none of our business. He needs to get back on the golf course



Jeff Brooke:

Nick Faldo is on Golf Channel saying the same thing. Get on a plane Tiger and come play golf, Nick says.



[Comment From Mark Alexander Mark Alexander : ]

Who cares. He's STILL going to GOLF, STILL going to make MILLIONS. Public apology or not, he's fixin his own issues... Everyone else should fix their own issues as well and stop butting into other peoples business...



[Comment From Guest Guest : ]

Bringing Buddhism (or any other religion) into this is such a cop out. Again, another form of damage control, trying to appear "spirtual."



[Comment From Guest Guest : ]

Hes not out of the woods yet..



[Comment From Disha Disha : ]

An apology can do nothing to bring back his image and character..... A person can make a mistake once..... but commiting it over and over again goes very well beyond just cheating. A very weak character.



[Comment From Puffin Puffin : ]

His emotions ramped up, and he only seemed genuine, when talking about privacy.



[Comment From Cory Cory : ]

Tiger Woods is a professional golfer, family and relationships have nothing to do with birdies and major championships. Looking forward to seeing Tiger back on the course. No apologies needed!



[Comment From Different Perspective Different Perspective : ]

Really. What was everyone expecting?



Jeff Brooke:

Thanks all for joining in. The story will continue ... and continue ... and continue



[Comment From brittany brittany : ]

it doesnt take a big man to apologize....he is forced by his future to apologize...he has not other choice



[Comment From Lizabeth Lizabeth : ]

Yes Brittany but they are not the one making millions of dollars on a false image of a clean cut family man



[Comment From Puffin Puffin : ]

For a billion dollars, I'll take the scrutiny.



Sarah Hampson:

Thanks, Rasha. Well, I think he has put much to rest. The speculaltion about domestic violence is over. He's put that to rest. And he showed some real contrition. Another side, for sure. But time will tell. I think more positive than negative came out of this press conference for him. As I said earlier, having his mother there was very effective. Even better than if Elin had been present.

Thansk for including me in the dicussion.



[Comment From Guest Guest : ]

Ahh...golf. Just think the course where the Masters is held didn't used to accept women or blacks and now will open their arms to a black womanizer..what a great day for all!!! Tiger is a cheating husband. Does he ever cheat at golf?



[Comment From Lynn Lynn : ]

People make mistakes, people with huge money and fame can obviously make bigger ones. He made massive ones, but for God's sakes, he didn't kill anyone here. It's what people do after their big mistakes that matter. Why are people so against hoping he turns his life around, for his sake and his family? We'd all be better off if people could be more forgiving and not hold grudges forever. All those other athletes and celebrities out there we'll switch to admiring - for all we know they've done way worse. He has not had a normal life, he has serious issues, he's now forced to deal with them, he's trying to. Why can't we be human and let him try it?



[Comment From Guest Guest : ]

only time will tell whether or not his 'speach' is truthful
