I just want to take some time off.
The PGA understands Tiger’s decisions and stands behind him 100 percent. PGA president Brian Whitcomb released the following statement,
While we are disappointed that the world’s No. 1 player will not be able to join us this year in Bermuda, we certainly understand and respect his decision to be with his family. Tiger has a long and successful history with the PGA Grand Slam of Golf and as a seven-time winner of this event, we are confident that we will see his participation in the future.
