Tiger Woods: Advised By Presidents Clinton, Obama

by at . Comments

U.S. Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton have both been offering Tiger Woods encouragement while he's in rehab for sex addiction (and/or drug addiction).

Tiger has spoken with Obama and Clinton, Golf Digest's Jaime Diaz says. One would think both have more important things to do, but hey, that's great.

Diaz also confirms Woods visited the Gentle Path clinic in Mississippi.

Woods came in with a "whatever it takes" mentality, including on "Disclosure Day," whereby patients reveal all of their past indiscretions to their spouse.

So Elin heard about all Tiger Woods' mistresses. Hope they ordered in breakfast, lunch and dinner, 'cause that therapy session couldn't have been brief.

Diaz also confirms that Elin Nordegren visited Woods at the clinic, and that the couple and their children spent Christmas together in Southern California.

Woods' mother is quoted in the article, and is described as "staunchly supportive of her son," despite the damage his sex scandal has caused their family.

Some other sites have made note of Tida Woods' past interviews with Diaz and speculate that she could be the source of many of his piece's revelations.

But the most surprising item in the Golf Digest article is the news about Woods' contact with two presidents. Clinton? Sure, dude's pretty much been there.

But President Obama also making a personal call to offer encouragement? Really, Barack? What do you have to offer, and why does he deserve your help?

As for his return to golf, which remains up in the air after Woods' apology speech, his mother says only following: "He will face himself, solve the problem."

"When he comes back, he will still love to play and love to win. I think more than ever, because his closet will be cleaned out and his mind will be free. And I know he will break [Jack Nicklaus' record 18 major championships]," she says.

That's one thing we wouldn't bet against.

Don't you guys have nations to lead and/or rebuild?
