The former World Number One Golfer and one of the richest sports personalities in the World, Tiger Woods insists that his family remains the top priority right now as he wants to get involved in the upbringing of his children. He definitely wants to focus on his family right now leaving a big question mark on his golf career.
The 39-year-old Woods says, “I don’t want to stop playing golf but the flip side is my kids’ lives are more important to me.
“Now, if I can do both, that is an ideal world. It’s a win win. If I can only do one it wouldn’t be golf . It would be my kids. That’s still a win win.”
“My kids are more important than golf. I’ve come to realize that now. To watch my kids play sports and to grow up and participate and even teach them how to become better, oh my God, it gives me so much joy. I can’t imagine not being able to do that as I get older.”
“That to me is special. Now I know what my dad felt like when we’d go out there and play nine holes in the dark.”
According to the Daily Record, his statements indicate that he is now heading towards a possible retirement. Woods career took a big hit back in 2010 following his divorce with his ex-wife Elin Nordegren after revelations about his infidelities.
Considered to be the best in the sport, Woods talks about his failed marriage and his future plans for golf. As per CBS news reports, Woods now shares a “fantastic” relationship with his ex-wife and has taken steps to explain to his two children what happened to their marriage.
He states, “I’ve taken the initiative with the kids and told them up front, ‘Guys, the reason why we’re not in the same house, why we don’t live under the same roof, Mommy and Daddy, is because Daddy made some mistakes’.”
“I want them to understand before they get to internet age and they log on to something or have their friends tell them something. I want it to come from me so that when they come of age I’ll just tell them the real story.”
