Tiger Woods Hires Ari Fleischer, Former Bush Press Secretary, To Rehabilitate Image: Report
The New York Post reports that Tiger Woods has hired former George W. Bush press secretary Ari Fleischer to help rehabilitate him image.
Two sources in the golf community have told The Post that Ari Fleischer, the former presidential advisor to George W. Bush and the man who was brought in to help repair the steroid-shattered image of Mark McGwire, has been huddling with Woods, plotting a strategy for his return to golf -- at the Arnold Palmer Invitational starting March 25 at Bay Hill in Orlando, Fla.
"They were in his living room this week going over a strategy for how to handle Bay Hill in two weeks," one source told The Post.
The other source told The Post, "I would be shocked if he didn't play the Arnold Palmer."

Woods apologized to basically everyone in a lengthy and rambling speech in February, but it's clear he has much to do if he wants to get his career back on track.
