As of December 7, 2009, this picture was on the Tiger Woods website with the following caption:
"It's very difficult for Tiger to leave his wife, Elin, and two children to go on the road."
In light of recent events (Elin moves out after #7 was announced), perhaps the caption to this picture should be changed? He might have missed his family, but it doesn't sound like he was lonely for companionship.
