Tiger Woods is coming back!! 

All together now...
 
"Hooray For The PGA!!"
 
Not even one month after admitting to the world that he was selfish and felt the rules of life did not apply to him, Tiger is returning to the safest place possible for his probable return....Augusta, GA.  It's interesting to me that Tiger chooses the same golf course that did not admit a African American golfer till 1990 as the "safe home" for his return.  The same golf course which still refuses to admit female golfers as members is the place where golf's greatest professional is to make his return from his recent personal asylum.
 
Nothing against Augusta, but the timing of today's announcement of Tiger's return proves his "statement" to the world was nothing more than a big fat lie

You remember the ending of his 13 minute statement as he addressed a hand selected crowd of family and friends with no media available for questioning.  When talking about his return to golf, Tiger said:
 
"In therapy I've learned the importance of looking at my spiritual life and keeping in balance with my professional life. I need to regain my balance and be centered so I can save the things that are most important to me, my marriage and my children."
 
"I do plan to return to golf one day, I just do not know when that day will be."
 
This therapy Tiger must have gone through must have been the best therapy in the world.  I do not know about you but if I cheated on my wife with over 20 women, would not it take longer than five to six months to fix truly what is "most important" to you?  During the 13 minutes of garbage I heard that February morning, very little of it I believed.
 
I believed Tiger when he stated that he felt the rules of life did not apply to him.  I believed Tiger we he stated that he owes families across the nation (including ones who sought help with his foundation) an apology.  By announcing today that his return would be the Masters in Augusta, GA not six months after the crash heard round the world.....he truly was not sorry for anything.
 
He says the most important things in his life is his kids and his marriage, then why concentrate on your career when for most families it takes years of therapy to fix harsh wounds.  He says he had a lot of work to do and said he would dedicate himself to do it.  

Was this the Cliffsnotes version of "therapy?" 

By returning to golf so soon only makes Tiger look shameful at best.  Most people who are in therapy NEED to work for a living.  He is the first athlete to gross over a BILLION DOLLARS but he feels he needs to get back on the golf course which for many would be considered an escape. 
 
"I have undergone almost two months of inpatient therapy and I am continuing my treatment. Although I am returning to competition, I still have a lot of work to do in my personal life."
 
He cheated on his wife with more than a baker's dozen of women and yet two months of therapy.....CURED???
 
If Tiger Woods thinks he can play all of us for fools then I hope the American public is not buying the crap he is serving us.  Not one month ago he told us that he and Elin had begun the process of discussing the damage caused by his actions, now after two months of therapy he feels Augusta is where he needs to be because it's a special focus in his career?
 
Tiger Woods is simply being the old Tiger Woods.  Handpicking the tournaments he wants to play based on how much of the spotlight he can get.  Tiger is simply picking The Masters because it's the crown jewel of the sport and it's where he can once again dominate the attention of the tournament no matter how he fairs on the scorecard.  Tiger may think in two months he has fixed some of the damage in his personal life, but the reality of the fact is he is still is an addict of his own celebrity.   
 
Just like when he went out on the town and lived up all things Tiger Woods, he has learned nothing about controlling his craving for attention and focusing on what he said was truly important.  His first goal should be to repair his life, but it's more about repairing his short game and spotlight.
 
So while the world tunes into CBS and The Masters for what could be the most watched sporting event in history, remember Tiger's words.  If his family and marriage are truly important to him, then why is Augusta where he needs to be?  Is not that more of an escape from what you said is truly most important to you....Tiger?

Keep running from the problems you created Tiger.  Show the man you truly are and not the fake you presented to the world last month.

Is Tiger mental, is he crazy? What label have the doctors given him? Is he a narcissist? Why do female celeb.s get psych labels (i.e. Brit Brit) but males make miraculous recoveries in a couple months?

If Tiger is a "sex addict," and he did an intensive stay at a treatment; it's not unreasonable to make significant progress. However like other addicts, the early stage of recovery often feels great. It's possible that as he felt better, he believed he was "cured" and could get back to golf. Maybe he can, or maybe he'll have to relapse a few times before he is ready to put his recovery first and golf second.
