Tiger Woods is lucky that ESPN's Rick Reilly is on the clock, ready and willing to dole out the sage advice that will help the troubled golfer put all of this messiness behind him.
In an appearance on the worldwide leader, Reilly said that Woods needs to visit Oprah, forget golf for a while and purge himself of anyone that his wife doesn't trust -- including his caddy.
Host Jay Harris seemed a little surprised at the columnist's take, pointing out that most experts think the sooner Tiger gets back winning tournaments, the sooner he'll be right again -- or as close to right as he can get after all this.
"When your house is on fire, you don't go play the Buick Open, you don't go play the Masters," Reilly responded. "He'll have plenty of Masters to go. He's got to really concentrate on winning back the trust of his wife, his family, his sponsors and his fans."
In addition, he pushed for the golfer to call all of his sponsors and freeze any endorsement deals until Woods think's he's "the kind of person worthy of your company."
What do you guys think of all these suggestions? Hasn't Tiger already apologized, stated he wanted his privacy and to move on? Wouldn't staying away from the game and missing the Masters just make things worse?
It's pretty obvious that his world is spinning out of control at an alarming rate. Say what you want about him bringing it upon himself, but it's a fact. And in times like these, people are apt to hang on to the one constant in their lives. For Woods, that's playing golf in the public eye. So how would completely abandoning the thing that makes the most sense to him give him balance?
