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



[Comment From Guest Guest : ]

To you blame the salesman (Accenture, nike, tag) of the image or the man himself ?



[Comment From Luc Luc : ]

I feel for his wife.



Jeff Brooke:

It's worth remembering that none of us really knows what's going on inside the four walls of his house. We'll never know. So there's not much point in speculating on that.





Sarah Hampson:

I find it very interesting that it's being made clear that Tiger is returning to sex addiction therapy after this conference. So maybe this announcement is part of his cure??



[Comment From David Zenger David Zenger : ]

Tiger EARNED all that money and deserves every cent



[Comment From Guest Guest : ]

What I'd like to know is how many people on here and in the media chastising Tiger for his behaviour have cheated themselves. My guess is a significant number.



[Comment From frank frank : ]

I am fascinated that so many seem to think they know so much. Only someone inside a relationship knows what is really happening. I also think he owes Elin a public apology since his behaviour became a public issue.



[Comment From John John : ]

He is a piblic figure, so h'ell have to face the music.



[Comment From jane jane : ]

its not a private matter when tiger only married elin for his career.



[Comment From Chris Chris : ]

He has tarnished his reputation, family, honour and himself as a "brand". That's a tall mountain to climb back from in today's society. His carefully crafted narcissism to this point gave him comfort, now his private indiscretions are public knowledge. That must be tough.



[Comment From Larry Larry : ]

He might be able to fire a 61, but I don't cheat on my spouse.



Rasha Mourtada:

"I knew my actions were wrong but I convinced myself normal rules didn't apply," Tigers just said in his statement.



Rasha Mourtada:

"I thought I could get away with whatever I wanted to. I felt I had worked hard my entire life and deserved to enjoy all the temptations around me," Tiger Woods said.



Rasha Mourtada:

"I was wrong, I was foolish. I don't get to play by different rules."



Rasha Mourtada:

"I've had a lot of time to think about what I've done. My failures have made me look at myself in a way I never wanted to before."



Rasha Mourtada:

"It's now up to me to make amends."



Jeff Brooke:

That might be as close as we'll get to understanding why he did it.



Rasha Mourtada:

"Achievements on the golf course are only part of setting an example. Character and decency are what really count."



Rasha Mourtada:

"Parents used to point to me as a role model to their kids. I owe all those parents an apology. I want to say to them that I am truly sorry."



Rasha Mourtada:

"It's hard to admit that I need help but I do. For 45 days from end of December to early February I was in in-patient therapy receiving guidance for the issues I've been facing."



Rasha Mourtada:

"I understand people have questions."



Rasha Mourtada:

"Every one of these questions and answers is a matter between Elin and me."



Rasha Mourtada:

"Despite the damage I have done I still believe it is right to shield my family from public spotlight."



Rasha Mourtada:

"They did not do these things, I did."



Rasha Mourtada:

"Whatever my wrong doings, for the sake of my family, please leave my wife and kids alone."



Rasha Mourtada:

"I recognize I have brought this on myself and I know above all I am the one who needs to change. I owe it to my family to become a better person."



Rasha Mourtada:

"I have a lot of work to do and I intend to dedicate myself to doing it."



Rasha Mourtada:

"Part of following this path for me is Buddhism, which my mother taught me at a young age."



Rasha Mourtada:

"Buddhism teaches that a craving for thing outside of ourselves creates an unhappy and pointless search for security."



Rasha Mourtada:

"Obviously I lost track of what I was taught."
