Tiger Woods admits: 'I've done some pretty bad things in my life'

| 3 Comments | No TrackBacks


Tiger Woods' first public interviews since the November car crash that set a "Mousetrap"-like chain of embarrassing events into motion revealed, well, not all that much.

Woods, who will make his return to golf at the Masters, spoke with ESPN and the Golf Channel, who each aired their sessions last night.

As you can see from the video, Tiger seemed poised, rehearsed and (here's hoping he was being genuine) contrite.

He declined to go into specifics about why he lost control of his car that night or why he was in treatment, but admitted he'd hurt a lot of people.

"I've done some pretty bad things in my life," Woods said.

The interviews were limited to five minutes in length, so they weren't long enough to get deep into the issues. Not that Woods would have opened up that much anyway.

For him, I think just putting his face back out there and answering anything is a victory right now. He's going to have to weather the storm for a little bit upon his return, but at some point -- perhaps not all that far off -- all of these scandal-related questions will be out of bounds for the media.

What do you guys take out of this question-and-answer session, if anything?

..that line of questioning, or should i say line of interuptions is about as moronic and transparent that ive ever heard from an iterviewer, what a douche, and as for Tiger, keep pushing on man, your manning up to everything, and showing true character that will get you and your family thru this ordeal, well done..

Don't believe anything Tiger Woods is saying. He's not about love for the game nor you as a fan. Its all about himself, the money, and domination. This whole affair was a way to show Elin that she couldn't dominate him like he's been able to do with others in his life.

Tiger Woods seems to be in the fight of his life. Tiger is desperately trying to save his marriage and his family. Tiger repeatedly has said publicly that he loves Elin and the children and that they are the most important thing of his life. You have to feel sorry for the guy. Tiger gave his soul to the devil in exchange for pleasures of the flesh. He may pay for this the rest of his life, more so if he looses Elin Nordegren and his children! I pray that whatever Elin decides to do work the best for her and her two precious children. My heart goes to them!
