This is a choreographed, scripted, staged statement that has been written and practiced over and over by Team Tiger so it won't really amount to much.
Still, he is going to have to get back out there at some point if he wants to continue his career. The way he has orchestrated this it's like going in ankle deep to test the waters so if that's what makes him feel comfortable, so be it.
I do agree with Els though in that the timing is a little screwy. He is doing it in the middle of a golf tournament. Seems to me he could've waited until Monday or Tuesday to make his statement so as not to take away from the tournament.
Whatever, Tiger is the greatest golfer we have ever seen but in my book, Tiger the person is an ass.
