Nicklaus: Woods' issues his own

Associated Press

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. -- Jack Nicklaus said the fallout over Tiger Woods' car crash and allegations of extramarital affairs is "none of my business."


Time usually heals all wounds. I think the hardest thing is obviously his family. That's a private matter for him and his family. ... He'll figure it out.

” -- Jack Nicklaus


"Our public is pretty forgiving at times," Nicklaus said Thursday. "Time usually heals all wounds. I think the hardest thing is obviously his family. That's a private matter for him and his family."


Nicklaus won 18 major championships, the most in golf history. Woods is second with 14.


Woods has remained out of the public eye since the crash Thanksgiving weekend and the scandal that quickly followed. He has acknowledged "transgressions" on his Web site.


"He's a great athlete," Nicklaus said. "He'll figure it out."


Nicklaus' first public comments about Woods' situation came after an event honoring The Benjamin School's golf team, recent winners of a Florida state championship. Son Gary Nicklaus played on a state title team at the school 26 years ago.

I agree...sort of.   I defended Tiger day one on this board. However, a lot more has come out about his affairs. Still, to the best of my knowledge, Tiger never stood in front of a camera and preached about morals or even the sanctity of marriage. If so, then he's a hypocrite. I know that many conservatives are bashing Joy Behar today for saying that, but you're not supposed to throw stones and most of us are sinners. She didn't say what he did was acceptable behavior or right, just that he never went around preaching to others about their immorality. As far as being wrong, I do believe he hurt a lot of people and is just as morally corrupt as some of the politicians (both Dems & Pubs) who have been caught with their pants down. But he isn't making important decisions that affect our lives or using state or federal funds, so it's really his business. Unlike David Letterman, he wasn't sleeping around the office from what I've heard, although I've been paying a lot more attention to the other "news" about health reform and the Afghanistan.

I have to admit, however, when I saw all the photos of the women he allegedly slept with, I turned up the volume a bit.   After all, everyone likes to hear about a golfer's putter, especially such a talented and famous one. :-)   Maybe it's because he's been playing golf since he was 2 and never had a chance to screw up as a teenager like the rest of us, although it's not an excuse to commit adultery.   One thing I would advise his wife to do is shut up. I read on a web site that her friends say she was aware of his very active sex life before they were married but he promised to reform and they've been fighting for a long time. In case anyone here doesn't know, I'm 100% heterosexual female, but I'm looking at this body and asking..he cheated on this woman??   He definitely needs therapy.
