Tiger Woods has written an essay y’all.
Coming up on the one-year anniversary of the infamous car crash that started the ball rolling on what would be his worst year ever, Woods has written a piece for Newsweek.
The Washington Post has an excerpt from the essay in which Tiger looks back on his mess of a life in the last twelve months.
He writes: "I had been conducting my personal life in an artificial way--as if detached from the values my upbringing had taught, and that I should have embraced."
"The physical pain from that car accident has long healed. But the pain in my soul is more complex and unsettling; it has been far more difficult to ease--and to understand. But this much is obvious now: my life was out of balance, and my priorities were out of order. I made terrible choices and repeated mistakes. I hurt the people whom I loved the most. And even beyond accepting the consequences and responsibility, there is the ongoing struggle to learn from my failings."
He also talks about spending time with his kids as a single dad….
Slowly, I'm regaining the balance that I'd lost. My healing process is far from complete, but I am beginning to appreciate things I had overlooked before. I'm learning that some victories can mean smiles, not trophies, and that life's most ordinary events can bring joy. Giving my son, Charlie, a bath, for example, beats chipping another bucket of balls. Making mac and cheese for him and his sister, Sam, is better than dining in any restaurant. Sharing a laugh watching cartoons or reading a book beats channel-surfing alone. Some nights now, it's just me and the kids, an experience that's both trying and rewarding. Probably like the experience a lot of families have every evening around the world."
Yeah, as if anyone believes he’s actually cooking for his kids and bathing them. Gimme a break! This is such an obvious PR stunt to get the public to like him again!
Apparently Tiger’s also joined Twitter now too. Never thought I’d say this, but Woods is looking a little desperate these days!
