"I am honored to represent the players of the PGA Tour," Woods said in a statement. "This is a critical point for the Tour, and the players will do their best to make certain that any changes that are made in Tour operations are in the best interest of all Tour stakeholders, including fans, sponsors and players.
For the bulk of his record-setting career, Tiger Woods wore blinders as he blazed a path to glory. There was not much that was ever going to get in his way, certainly not the nuisances associated with PGA Tour life and all of the behind-the-scenes wrangling that a star of his magnitude might find intrusive
Woods had others to handle any issues, and he went about the business of becoming one of the greatest golfers ever. He stayed out of Tour politics, and if he had an opinion, he expressed it in a way to have the greatest impact while rarely crusading.
