John Daly told CBS Friday that beleaguered Tiger Woods needs to get back to his daily routine — on the the golf course.
“Go out and play golf,” he offered in a televised plea to his colleague.
Daly, a veteran golfer speaking on the Early Show, said that he might have handled the situation differently — as in coming clean earlier — but believes Woods is “getting good advice” from his inner circle.
Daly said he has unsuccessfully reached out to Tiger, who has been scarce since the allegations of infidelity went public.
“I won’t bug him … but he can call me,” Daly said, noting the golf community should “support the man who has elevated our tour for the past decade.”
Woods’ accident occurred the day after Thanksgiving, November 27, after an argument with Nordegren; it came on the heels of the National Enquirer’s bombshell revelation Tiger had been having an affair with breathtaking NYC party girl Rachel Uchitel. Since then, the world-famous golfer, has been accused of affairs with several women.
Last week, amidst the media furor, Tiger posted a message on his Web site, announcing his hiatus from the sport he mastered.
“After much soul searching, I have decided to take an indefinite break from professional golf,” Woods said on his Web site. “I need to focus my attention on being a better husband, father, and person.”
