Tiger Woods: We will let you know when the lynching scandal is over

The Washington Post reports that Tiger says the lynching scandal is over. Tiger cannot be serious. This was not a remark by some woman made to Tiger at a cocktail party. This was a "witticism" uttered on national TV.

In the wake of this scandal, Golfweek has had to fire an editor for running a noose on its cover.

The issue is between the broadcaster, the media and the viewing public. Accordingly, we will let you know when the matter is closed, Mr. Woods. But not yet sir, not yet.
Woods: 'Lynch' Issue Over

Tiger Woods says Golf Channel anchor Kelly Tilghman meant no harm when she used the term "lynch" during television commentary about him, and he regards the issue closed as he returns to work this week.

"It was unfortunate," Woods said yesterday in his first public comments since Tilghman was suspended for two weeks. "Kelly and I did speak. There was no ill intent. She regrets saying it. In my eyes, it's all said and done."

The world's No. 1 player will make his 2008 debut at the Buick Invitational in La Jolla, Calif., which starts Thursday.
