Tiger Woods spotted! What is he doing?

Tiger Woods apparently has been spotted in Mississippi and is reportedly entered a sex addiction clinic. According to an article linked to, Woods is seeking rehabilitation services from one of the nations top facilities on addictive behavior. The golfers clean cut image has been marred in a sex scandal and it appears that his handlers have been mismanaging the situation from the start.

I can’t be the judge of whether Woods or other public figures marry for love or image but by all accounts Woods marriage appears to have been one for image. If that is the case Woods handlers have not done the golfer justice. White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel says “You never let a serious crisis go to waste.” Woods handlers have not lived up to this manner of thinking. The general public will not be sympathetic to Woods situation because of an alleged sex addition. ┬áSinger Eric Benet tried that excuse before he and Halle Berry were divorced then later recanted the claim. It didn’t work for him and it wont work for Tiger.

Assuming that this was a marriage of convenience and image, what Woods handlers should have counseled him on was a amicable divorce. By him filing for divorce after the scandal broke the focus would have shifted from Tiger’s infidelity, to what the hell is wrong with Elin. Many would have asked why can’t she keep her husband at home. Woods would have been able to ride out the “I was driven to infidelity” scenario and could have played the victim roll. A single or divorced Tiger Woods can continue with his philandering ways and be praised for the same actions. ┬áThis would lead to Woods being the most admired playboy in the world (George Clooney would have fell to a distant second.)

The alternate to this synopsis is that Tiger Woods is madly in love with his wife and is doing everything he can to save his marriage. If that is the case. Then his handlers deserve a salute ala former President George W. Bush’s praise of former FEMA Director Michael Brown saying after Hurricane Katrina hit, “Brownie (handlers), you’re doing a heck of a job.”
