Tiger Woods has avoided the public since the Nov. 27 SUV crash at his home, even though he’s become a staple of newscasts and late-night comedy put-downs. PR Professor Peter Morrissey, a crisis-communication expert who worked on the Tylenol case, suggests Tiger must carefully pick his public appearances, take care of family matters, don’t blame the media, be humble and self-effacing, and keep winning golf tournaments.
“Tiger may actually benefit from this in that his image is not as a perfectionist, but as person that is mortal and fallible. He must remember that even the worse sins and faults are forgiven over time and this controversy will fade.”
