Who the heck is Oliver Wilson? Not exactly a well known name. Tiger made mistakes, Tiger is paying for his mistakes and has admitted his mistakes. Do these people now want blood or what? Let the man finish re-hab, attempt to put his marriage back together, and we will see him on the golf course when he's ready. In the meantime we will all be bored watching guys like Ernie Ells and England's Oliver Wilson (who has 0 professional wins).

I just looked up stats on Oliver Wilson. He has been a pro since 2003 and never won a single tournament. Now he criticises Tiger for Tigers news conference timing. What a jerk! Go back to England and play on the Euopean Tour!

When you've won 14 majors and 70-plus tournaments in just 12 years and are the most famous athlete on the planet, you can call a 'statement' conference to apologize to the world for screwing up your own personal life whenever the hell you want.

And while it's true that no one golfer is bigger than golf, let's gets real here....in today's world, if only for a while, Tiger IS golf....numbers don't lie.

And if you want this to change, Oliver, and Ernie, and every other player who's complained about Tiger-gate, then start winning 5-6-7 tournaments a year, throw in some majors and get to #1...and stay there.

Otherwise, shut up and play.

Why are you ragging on Oliver Wilson. What about how Ernie Els and the other players feel. What about the timing. Hold the news converence, if thats what you want to call it since there were very few news people, on a Friday, a Tournament day, hold it on a day put on by Accenture, a sponsor who dumped his ass. And this is how he is going to show the world he has changed. He is still thinking of himself first. He is a liar and cheat and will never change. He thinks he is above god. And you think his words came from the heart, no way, he is just sorry he got caught.

Kat - That's all bull @#$%!! Nobody's watching the tournament anyway and if you are watching the tournament then don't watch Tiger. So as far as the timning goes who really cares when he makes an apology, he made it. So leave the guy alone to get on with mending his marriage. The words did come from his heart, most of us believe, so you can go back to watching a no nothing Oliver Wilson play golf.

Well, Kat I disagree mostly with your statement. Granted, he might have wanted to take some shine off of the tournament sponsor Accenture but not the tournament itself. He timed the press release before the tournament started. There was a T V set up at the tournament for the press and the players themselves which just about everybody there watch the apology. I don't know where Wilson gets off making a statement like that but maybe he was following Els statement thinking it would be ok. The problem is that Els thinks the golf world revolves around him and, at least in the U S, it doesn't. I thought Tiger was sincere and wants/will change. Trust me, when he comes back and he doesn't change then that's it for Tiger, no matter how well he plays. He needs to get back to gold and show the fans that he can be a winner again and show respect for the game and to the fans. If his wife stays with him, she sure wouldn't be the first wife to give her husband a second chance, then he needs to show her and the fans that he can be trusted. In other words, he needs to live up to his commitments or, I think, all hell will fall on him from which he would never recover. Although his past will always be with him if he starts to win and keep his personal life on the up and up then years down the road he will be forgiven by most people. Think about JFK--K. Bryant--Magic Johnson and President Clinton. These guys, among others, are respected by the fans of there chosen profession after their lack of judgement. It will take time.

What's your problem? Oliver Wilson made a very legitimate comment. The timing was very poor with a major world event going on at the same time. And what did we learn from Tiger's press conference anyways? Nothing we didn't know to begin with. And who are you to criticize? I didn't know people had to win a professional golf tournament to have an opinion. If that's the case then may I ask which event you won to allow you such freedoms?

Funny how you advise people like Oliver Wilson to butt out when in reality the whole affair(s) with Tiger Woods affects his life. What's your excuse? Maybe you should start taking your own advice and get a life yourself.

If I remember right this vote was taken before the flap about his personal life. If not this award then it was another one. Anyway, unless the award includes his personal ;life, which I don't think it does, then no problem.

I'm not quite certain what your random combination of words is meant to convey but don't take it personally that your ridiculous comment was refuted. You've made an obvious idiot of yourself on here in a situation which you know nothing about. Funny how the media can shape the opinions of poorly informed people like yourself. Get the facts straight and then make intelligent comments instead of the badly constructed insults you need a little practice with.
