When he publicly apologized for extra-marital “transgressions” today, Tiger Woods also wrote that “I am dealing with my behaviour and personal failings behind closed doors with my family.”

He wrote, “Those feelings should be shared by us alone.”

But it’s not reality.

The problem for Tiger is that he’s more than a family member and more than just an athlete.

He’s a brand, a billion dollar business, built to endorse other brands. Those brands need him to continue to appear in public. To do that, Tiger has to scrub his image now, and fast.
