    Jack Nicklaus on Tiger sex scandal

    Tiger Woods is where his wife wants him - under her thumb.

    Contrary to reports that Elin Nordegren is packing her bags and taking the kids to Sweden, the former bikini model is sitting tight and determined to keep her family together, People magazine claims.

    "Don't let the pretty blond thing fool you - she is tough," a source close to the family said. "She's a fighter, and I am sure she's fighting like hell right now, to keep her family intact, but also to make sure Tiger will always be haunted by this."

    Nordegren, 29, has made no public statements about the bevy of busty women linked to her husband.

    But she knew he was a ladies' man when they tied the knot in 2004, friends said.

    "Elin had talked to other golfers and their wives about Tiger's wild parties," a friend told the magazine.

    "When she asked Tiger about it, he said he would stop doing it. And she believed him. But he never did."

    Now that the scandal has broken wide open, Woods, 33, has reassured his wife there are no more skeletons in his closet, People reports.

    "Tiger has told Elin everything," a source said. "Nothing that's coming out now is a surprise. She knows what he has done, and they've had some long talks about it. They are getting everything out in the open."

    Woods has reportedly offered his wife millions to keep her from splitting.

    Friends told People that Nordegren has two more reasons for staying - their kids, Sam, 2, and Charlie, 10 months.

    Nordegren is a "child of divorce" whose parents split when she was six and doesn't want to put her two kids through that ordeal, they said.

    "That's not something she's likely going to want to do to Sam and Charlie," a close friend said.

    "She really believes in the importance of parents staying together."

    Some sources in the People piece, which appears in print on Friday, say Nordegren had no clue Woods was cheating.

    Others say she turned a blind to keep living in luxury.

    Either way, Nordegren appears to have reconciled herself to the fact that Woods is "not perfect," People reports. "But he's a good father, and he wants to be a good husband, too," a source esaid.

    In other developments, Woods got a shout-out of support from another legendary golfer, Jack Nicklaus.

    "He's a great athlete," Nicklaus said. "He'll figure it out."

    The Golden Bear said Woods' reported cheating is "none of my business" and predicted the scandal would soon die down. "Our public is pretty forgiving at times," Nicklaus said.

    "Time usually heals all wounds. I think the hardest thing is obviously his family."

    Also, porn princess Holly Sampson released a statement through her lawyer in which she insisted she and Woods were "intimate" before he married Nordegren.

    She said she would be "releasing details of this legitimate relationship."

    Woods was reportedly caught texting New York party girl Rachel Uchitel by his wife shortly before he stormed out of their Orlando-area mansion on Nov. 27 - and crashed the family SUV into a fire hydrant and then a tree.

    Neither Woods nor his wife have made public statements since the disgraced golfer apologized last week for his "transgressions."

    But since then, embarrassing text, e-mail and voice messages Woods apparently sent to Uchitel and cocktail waitress Jaimee Grubbs have come back to haunt him. Uchitel, 34, has denied sleeping with Woods.

    Grubbs, 24, insists they cavorted for more than two years and has produced evidence to back up her claims.

    And now Woods faces the humiliating prospect of seeing nude photos of himself displayed in Playgirl, which has been triple checking to make sure their pics are the real deal.

    The fallout from all this for Woods has been an erosion in the confidence of his many corporate sponsors.

    Also, a California congressman scrapped his plan to nominate Woods for a Congressional Medal of Honor.[/QUOTE]

    EDIT: Title should be "Jack Nicklaus [U]on[/U] sex scandal" :O

    The public always forgets. Something newer and shinier will always happen and always be more groundbreaking.

    I'm glad Tiger got his...the vag I mean, not the nosy public telling him what he did is wrong. You know every celeb who gets caught in this stuff just wants to hold a press conference in a Panda coat with an elephant tusk cane like "B*tch, I do 'dis sh*t cause I'm f*ckin balla."

    Sh*t, even if he NEVER recovers from this image wise...he'll still be counting his millions..meanwhile America continues to wah over the superstar athlete banging alot of hot women...this is what happens in a world where we worship celebs like this country does.

    Kobe raped a chick and no one cares anymore.

    Ben Crane is my new favorite golfer


    Now, however, two players with no apparent direct connection to the scandal are taking their shots at Tiger. Ben Crane, an eight-year pro with two wins on the PGA Tour, and Charles Warren, a six-year veteran of the PGA Tour, each sharply criticized Woods, on the record, in the current issue of Life & Style magazine. (Visor tip: Sports By Brooks)

    [B]"This is no surprise to anyone who knows Tiger," said Crane, pictured above. "He's a phony and a fake and he can't retain that squeaky-clean endorsement deal any longer."[/B]

    Crane also hinted that Elin Woods could have known all about Woods' alleged extramarital activities. [B]"She's no fool," he said, and speculated that she possibly "turned a blind eye because of the money and the kids and the lifestyle he provides."[/B]

    Warren also had a bit of advice for Elin, with uncompromising words for Woods. "She was very young when Jesper introduced them," Warren said. "She had stars in her eyes and maybe dollar signs too. But no, she should not stay with him. What kind of message would that send to her sister and mother and all the women out there? That your husband can be a bastard but as long as he makes the deal worthwhile, you'll stay?"

    Today's PGA pros owe at least a quarter of everything they've earned to Tiger, who raised the game's prominence and, in turn, their paychecks. But Crane's comments indicate that Tiger's alleged proclivities were an open secret among Tour players.

    Crane and Warren will no doubt catch grief for their comments, but what's the bigger transgression (to coin a phrase) -- speaking out against the PGA's golden goose, or keeping a secret to preserve your own good fortune?

    Meh, I can understand Crane's sentiments, but they speak more of jealousy than any moral high ground, imho.

    I think most of these dudes are doing what Tiger is doing, granted on a lesser scale, thats why most of them are smart enough to not comment.

    With very few exceptions, athletes are not role models.

    Just another reason why Derek Jeter is the smartest man in the room.

    He can bang whoever he wants.

    the problem is, unlike other sports, spectators are alomst right on top of golfers at certain points- moreso tee shots and on the green...

    maybe people forget but at every tournament on a bunch of holes they'll always be some smart ass who says, "Tiger- did you lip it last night like that put??" as the guy's walking off the green which will surely infuriate him....

    I'm a huge Tiger Woods fan for his skills on the golf course not because of his "squeaky clean" image. Looking forward to seeing him back on the course, hopefully soon.

    Moral high ground is code for "broke mofo who wants to feel better about themselves."

    And one of the major problems with American sport is that we actually try to convince ourselves that athletes ARE role models...it's hilarious.

    Maybe Wimbledon fans are polite but British golf fans won't be. It's a young man's sport now, and Britain has as many louts as anywhere.

    Maybe brits were a polite people back in the day, or maybe americans still think of them as silent butler types like in old movies, but anyone who has spent time in the UK knows Brits are not a particularly polite bunch.

    He knows Americans have a short memory and big hearts. If Nixon can rehab his image so can Tiger.
