Tiger Woods Says Sorry, EA Sports Looks Forward To His Return To Golf

Tiger Woods' life changed forever Thanksgiving night.

Today the pro-golfer and face of Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11, due to hit all platforms in June, apologised to the world and "set the record straight" on what really happened that night and his past infidelities that came to light because of it.

During the short, no-questions-asked press conference, Woods announced that his hiatus from golf will eventually end, saying he does plan to return to golf one day, perhaps even this year, but that he doesn't yet know when that will be.

In an emotional press conference, which ended three months of seclusion, Woods said that he has been undergoing therapy and is returning to his Buddhist upbringing to help him deal with his faults.

We contacted Electronic Arts to get their take on his press conference, and to see if Woods' absence from golf will have any impact on the games they make featuring him.

"It was good to see Tiger address the public today, and we're supportive of his focus toward family and rebuilding his life," said Peter Moore, president of EA Sports. "He remains one of the greatest athletes in history, and as a long-standing partner, we look forward to seeing Tiger back on the golf course when the time is right for him and his family."

An Electronic Arts spokesman added that their strong, more than decade long, relationship with Tiger, remains unchanged and that Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 11 will be released in June 2010 on the Xbox 360, PS3, Wii and iPhone platforms, as originally planned.

Those games could be that the only sign of Woods golfing this year.


    Tigers personal life is his own deal. He's the best damn golfer in the world and noone should be on the covers but him. If he's been unfaithful, that's for him and his wife to sort out, it doesn't 'harm' me, my partner or my kids and we all play his games now and then when they're released via rental. So I hope they do keep him on, it's good he's getting his shit together and getting back into golf. Wish him all the best and hope his wife and family is doing well too.

    I think it's silly that if avg Joe did all the things that Woods did, people wouldn't be so forgiving. Damn life and its double standards.

    Personally I couldn't give a sh@t who Tiger dips his wick in, but next time dude if your gonna be a naughty boy..Don't get caught.
