This is not going to be another one of those "What Tiger should say" notices. Hundreds of "experts" have weighed in with those. I'm sure most people, inside and outside of golf and the media, have pretty good ideas about what he should say and how he should say it. I imagine many people would agree.
One of those many "advice" pieces that started showing up yesterday did stand out. Mark DeMoss, president of an Atlanta-based public relations firm who often does crisis management, wrote "The Speech That Could Save Tiger Woods."
Like everyone else, DeMoss suggested that he be contrite and especially considerate of his wife and children.
He added a few other touches that are worth discussion. He said Woods should voluntarily skip all the majors this year, passing up a chance to tie Jack Nicklaus' record or at least delay his inevitable march to the record, just to show how serious he is about changing his life. The PR guru also suggested that Woods submit to mentoring by Nicklaus, Tony Dungy and a member of the clergy.
Interesting. Somehow I don't think it's exactly what we will hear at 11.
