Tiger Woods will go down as one of the best golfers to ever live, but if you read between the lines, his career as a pro could be over.

Woods sat down with Time Magazine for a revealing piece on his back issues, his tug-of-war with the media and his high-profile divorce from his wife Elin Nordegren.

Tiger is open in taking full responsibility for his extra-marital affairs, and in one segment, admits that he should have been “more open” and “honest” about whatever sexual or monogamous issues he might have had.

You were at the center of the public eye when your private life was exposed in 2009. What would you have done differently before and after?

In hindsight, it’s not how I would change 2009 and how it all came about. It would be having a more open, honest relationship with my ex-wife. Having the relationship that I have now with her is fantastic. She’s one of my best friends. We’re able to pick up the phone, and we talk to each other all the time. We both know that the most important things in our lives are our kids. I wish I would have known that back then.

What kept you from knowing that?

Either that’s the position I was in, or I took advantage of opportunities. But, when it comes down to it, right down to it, it’s just having a more open, honest relationship with my ex-wife when we were married. Our frustrations would have come out if we had talked about it and been open and honest with each other. Which we are now, and it’s absolutely fantastic.
Woods was honest in his answers, and makes it seem like he probably would have had to address those sexual demons at some point, regardless of who he was married to.
