Approaching the one-year anniversary of his Thanksgiving night accident that led to a worldwide sex scandal, Tiger Woods said his life is now “blessed and balanced” when he appeared Thursday on ESPN’s “Mike & Mike in the Morning” radio show, hosted by Mike Golic and Mike Greenberg.
The normally reticent Woods has been all over the media this week, writing an essay for Newsweek and starting his own Twitter account (@TigerWoods). Asked by Greenberg about the timing of these appearances, Woods said, “Well, I think it’s about time that I made a connection with the fans, who have been absolutely incredible to me over the last year. I went through some rough times and some tough moments and I want to say thank you to [the fans] and reconnect with them.”
Sports Illustrated’s Richard Deitsch reported Wednesday that ESPN agreed not to ask Woods about the details of his car accident or how much time he spends with his former wife, Elin. An ESPN spokesperson also told Deitsch that Woods chose to appear on the Mike & Mike Morning Show because of his relationship with the hosts.
