What others said about the speech

 

“It was 95 percent about contrition and 5 percent about golf, because the latter will take care of itself. Winning, good behavior and time can be his friends for the long term.” – Vada Manager, former public relations official for Nike

“I think he was very genuine in his responses and his statement. I think we are entering a whole new era spiritually and emotionally for Tiger Woods.” – Debert Cook, publisher of African American Golfer’s Digest

“What I expected to see today was some humility. What I saw today was arrogance. What I saw was anger. … It was basically an infomercial.” – Public relations executive Rick Cerrone on CNN

“He came off very Tiger-like, in that it was a little too rehearsed and a little too scripted for my liking. The more scripted you are, the more risk you run of not being authentic or sincere.” – Bill McGowan, image consultant for Clarity Media Group

“I said, ‘I’m so proud of you. Never think you stand alone. Mom will always be there for you and I love you.’ ” – Kultida Woods
