Tiger Woods released a statement yesterday:
“I understand the severity of what I did and I take full responsibility for my actions. I want the public to know that alcohol was not involved. What happened was an on expected reaction to prescribed medications. I didn’t realize the mix of medications had affected me so strongly. I would like to apologize with all my heart to my family, friends and the fans. I expect more from myself too. I will do everything in my power to ensure this never happens again. I fully cooperated with law enforcement, and I would like to personally thank the representatives of the Jupiter Police Department and the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s office for their professionalism.”
Everyone looks guilty in mug shots, right?
Woods’ police report was released this morning and his breath test results are in: 0.0.
People will ask, “Why was he driving around at 3 a.m.?”
And that’s a valid question, but perhaps all the piling on was a bit premature?
- ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith calls Tiger Woods a, “lost soul.”
- GolfWorld writes, “Tiger Woods’ disastrous 2017 just got even worse.”
- Notah Begay said on GOLF Channel, “I’m saddened by the news; it’s embarrassing for Tiger.”
- Hunter Mahan tweets, “Get this dude some help please #TigerWoods.”
Hunter Mahan might even agree that the backlash was too harsh, his tweet has been deleted.
