WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama says Tiger Woods will still be a “terrific” golfer despite his personal issues.
Woods announced this week that he will end more than four months of seclusion after revelations of his extramarital affairs by returning to professional competition at the Masters golf tournament in three weeks.
Obama said in an interview Wednesday with Fox News Channel that Woods has acknowledged betraying his family and that he has to work out those personal issues. But Obama said he’s sure Woods is still going to be a terrific golfer.
Woods announced in December that he was taking an indefinite break from golf. He made a public apology last month.
