I had to address this bombshell since he has made the news the past two weeks (This is written at the beginning of December 2009) and he is such a high profile professional. So here is my predictions for Tiger:
Mr. Woods will take a long break of about 5 months, away from the media and golf to deal with his marriage and family. His wife is moving away to another country and the separation is therefore a fact! A lot of ressentments there but I don’t see a divorce in 2010 as both of them want to take it slow and not rush into things.
I don’t see him loosing any sponsors beside the ones that may make a move in the next few weeks (It has already started!). Beyond that timeframe, his corporate supports will stand by him. Tiger is not finished! By summer he will be back onto the golf tour and he will start his winnings by the fall. The man is capable to get back into his game and to regroup. Thus his earnings will peak again by the last 3 months of the year and Tiger will regain his leading position. However it may take a bit longer for the public to forget his indiscretions but even this shall pass as well…
I won’t be surprised if there are talks of Tiger having issues with sexual addictions and him getting into some form of therapy to make amend (although very discreetly and we may found out only after he went). He still has many years ahead of him as a champion and his decision to take a break won’t affect the big picture.
I wish him and his family the very best!
As of 01/20/2010: there has been no new bombshell lately related to sponsors dropping Tiger Woods. But just fresh from Earthlink News Banners, my prediction is coming to pass. In short the article confirms that Tigers is undergoing a sexual addiction rehab program called “Gentle Path” in Hattiesburg, Miss – at the Pine Grove Behavioral Health and Addiction Services.
Good news on March 16th 2010 that is right in line with the prophecy: Tiger Wood is back For the Masters April 6th 2010!
See Earthlink news link below:
I will continue to post updates on this on going predictions since it has not come to full circle. This following Earthlink news tells it all in my opinion and was released on April 16th 2010. We will see in a few months if he is back to the number 1.
08/24/2010 Tiger Woods is officially divorced as of yesterday. However I would invite you to check an interview his wife (ex now) did and it is insightful about what they attempted to do as far as trying to work on the relationship and what her plans are for the future….
Personal note: as much as I saw no rushed divorce for 2010, this separation was worked out very carefully and it probably explains the smoothness of it. Usually this kind of divorce can take quite awhile, in this case those two individuals did it quietly for the sake of the children!
