Tiger Woods Press Conference Fails to Impress Alleged Mistress

Tiger Woods spoke to the press on Monday at the Augusta National Golf Club, apologizing again for causing “so much harm” to his loved ones and fans over his “transgressions” with various alleged mistresses. Woods will return to golf at the US Masters on Thursday after nearly five months of being absent from the game.

“I lied to a lot of people, deceived a lot of people, kept others in the dark,” Tiger Woods said in the pre-Masters press conference. “‘I fooled myself as well. The full magnitude of it, it’s pretty brutal. I take full responsibility for what I’ve done, and I don’t take that lightly.”

Woods said he was blown away by the encouragement he received from fans when he hit the course at Augusta National to practice for the Masters. “I tell you what; the galleries couldn’t have been nicer… Today was just something that really touched my heart pretty good.” (Read the full Tiger Woods press conference transcript here.)

Joslyn James, one of Tiger Woods’ alleged mistresses, called the golfer’s press conference a “big malarkey” and said all of the women who had relationships with him “deserve an apology.” Celebrity attorney Gloria Allred, who is representing James, echoed her client’s statement. “Women are not transgressions, they’re human beings.”

Really, we don’t think anyone who gets down and dirty with an obviously married man has a right to any kind of apology. All those “women” out there who are enjoying their 15 minutes of fame for sleeping with Tiger Woods needing be handing out apologies instead – to Woods’ wife and children.

Tiger Woods Tantrum Video – Bad Form?

Golf legend Tiger Woods lost his temper and threw a tantrum at the Deutsche Bank Championship on Friday and now the video of the incident has gone viral. Was Woods’ loss of temper just a normal response to a bad day? Or should the golf icon be more careful about keeping his anger in check?

The trouble started during the first round of the Deutsche Bank Championship. Teeing off on the fifth hole, Woods muddled his shot. In a never-before-seen display of temper on the golf course, Tiger Woods got riled up and launched his club across the course. Yelling, apparently to himself, Woods shouted “Release the club!” and walked away – leaving caddie Steve Williams to retrieve the projectile.

The Tiger Woods tantrum caught on video has fans asking if this kind of behavior on the golf course crosses the line. Woods isn’t the first golfer to lose his temper in front of the cameras, but his status as a role model for younger players means even a small lapse in judgment can easily be blown out of proportion.

Check out the video for yourself. Do you think Woods went too far in expressing his displeasure for all the world to see?
