Tiger Woods quits golf comes as a surprise to some, but not others.Â You see, many people speculated that Woods was going to quit golf while rumors were circulating that Tiger and Elin Woods are fleeing to Sweden.Â It’s not certain whether or not the couple is moving out of the country.
Tiger Woods issued the following statement on his Web site when making the announcement that he quits golf:
I am deeply aware of the disappointment and hurt that my infidelity has caused to so many people, most of all my wife and children. I want to say again to everyone that I am profoundly sorry and that I ask forgiveness. It may not be possible to repair the damage I’ve done, but I want to do my best to try.
I would like to ask everyone, including my fans, the good people at my foundation, business partners, the PGA Tour, and my fellow competitors, for their understanding. What’s most important now is that my family has the time, privacy, and safe haven we will need for personal healing.
Many fans are disappointed.Â When Tiger Woods took a hiatus from professional golf because of his bum knee, ratings fell 50% on TV.

Elin Woods has also been thrust in the middle of this scandal.Â How does Tiger Woods’ wife handle this situation? It looks like Elin Nordegren gave Tiger an ultimatum: Me or Golf.Â Tiger chose his wife and kids.
Tiger Woods quits golf, Elin Nordegren gets her way, and more and more mistresses keep surfacing.Â What’s next for Woods?
Only time will tell.
