Tiger Woods could’ve used the luck of the Irish to wend his way through a minefield of questions recently, during a press conference in Ireland. After participating in the charity J.P. McManus Invitational Pro-Am, Tiger fielded a few normal golf questions before being asked the ones everyone wanted to know. Namely, was his sex scandal “worth it” at the cost of his marriage?
After a reporter asked if his dalliances with various other women other than his wife Elin Nordegren were worth it, in light of his divorce and the loss of endorsements, Tiger responded,”I think you’re looking too deep into this,” according to the Associated Press.
And since Tiger might’ve been expected to go to Scotland to prepare for the British Open at St. Andrews, which is next week, he is instead going home to Florida. So how will he get ready?
And he’s not going to Scotland because…?
“I need to get home,” adding, “See my kids,” when asked why he was in such a rush.
While reporters tried to get Tiger to open up more about how his personal life has affected his game, he would only reply: “There are times in one’s life when things get put in perspective, one being when my father passed, and obviously what I’ve been going through lately.”
“Everything’s working itself out,” he added when prodded once more to expand on his personal life.
