So tell me Tiger, how does one amuse thyself in those long lonely hours on the road?

I do love the delicious irony, right below a statement, just released where Tiger apologises for his "transgressions", is a link to a chumly Q and A where Tiger answers questions on how he copes with life on the road, away from his family...
Rupert from Houston asks - Do you enjoy playing so far away from home? I can imagine that, now that you have children, it's got to be hard to be so far away from them.
TW - "You're exactly right, Rupert. Now, it's very difficult to leave Elin and the children, and I'm sure it's only going to get tougher. Once Sam and Charlie start school, it won't be easy to take them out of class for a week-long trip. A veteran pro once told them it's tough to leave them as babies, but once they ask you not to go, it breaks your heart. That's something I'll always remember. "
I like the typo there, It's like the veteran pro was talking to his kids. Maybe he was reassuring them that Daddy will find it harder to go in later years... You'd think a PR eagle eye would have moved that by now. But then they haven't been doing a great job handling this now have they.
Just read Tigers statement - a public apology to his family - the least he could do really - quite a bit more gracious than the previous statement too. Not a full blown confessional but I think that might be enough. For some at least...
