Report: Agent says Tiger done talking about scandals
Enough is enough, as far as Tiger Woods is concerned.
Woods has answered all the questions he’s going to about his personal scandals, his agent Mark Steinberg told The Australian Herald Sun newspaper in advance of Woods’ playing in Australia next month.
"It has been such a tumultuous year and I think he's really paid the price," Steinberg said from his Cleveland office.
"But it's time to move forward. He has answered all the questions that he's going to answer and I hope that he's heading for a productive week in Melbourne.
Woods dislikes talking about his personal life, but following his Thanksgiving car accident and ensuing sex scandals, even the reticent Woods couldn’t avoid addressing some of these issues. Through his “personal statement” in Florida in February, his interviews with The Golf Channel and ESPN and his media conferences at tournaments, Woods acknowledged making “incredibly bad decisions, decisions that hurt so many people close to me."
Woods has also talked about his divorce from Elin Nordegren, which was finalized on Aug. 23, saying, “I wish her the best in everything. You know, it's a sad time in our lives.”
Still, Woods has avoided answering many questions related to his scandals. For example, he’s acknowledged to going to rehab, but he’s never said what for. He’s also been tight-lipped about the circumstances of his Thanksgiving night car accident, saying only that “the police investigated the accident and they cited me 166 bucks and it's a closed case.”
Woods will be in Melbourne for the Australian Masters on Nov. 11-14. He is also playing in the HBSC Champions tournament in Shanghai on Nov. 4-7. While in Asia, he will play a one-day skins game in Thailand on Nov. 8. His final event of the season will be at the Chevron World Challenge, which Woods hosts in Thousand Oaks, Calif, on Dec. 2-5.
