Between joining Twitter and writing a mea culpa in Newsweek, Tiger Woods has found himself once again front-and-center in the media. (It feels like November 2009 all over again … with better PR!) The golfer, who has spoke measuredly about his sex scandal in press conferences — for the uninitiated, he admitted to having affairs outside his marriage to Elin Nordegren, who he has since divorced — opted to write about his troubles in a Newsweek article titled “How I’ve Redefined Victory.” Writes Woods in the piece: “Last November, everything I thought I knew about myself changed abruptly, and what others perceived about me shifted, too. I had been conducting my personal life in an artificial way — as if detached from the values my upbringing had taught, and I should have embraced. The physical pain from that car accident has long healed. But the pain in my soul is complex and unsettling; it has been far more difficult to ease — and to understand. But this much is obvious now: My life was out of balance, and my priorities were out of order … Golf is a self-centered game, in ways good and bad. So much depends on one’s own abilities. But for me, that self-reliance made me think I could tackle the world by myself. It made me think that if I was successful in gold, then I was invincible. Now I know that, no matter how tough or strong we are, we all need to rely on others.” Click here to read the rest of the text.
