(Newser) – Tiger Woods is getting ready to get back on the golf course, but he won’t have Ari Fleischer to help spin off-the-course happenings any more. The former Bush press secretary confirmed last night’s Golf Channel report that he and Woods have parted company, but wouldn’t elaborate in an email to the AP.

Robert Lusetich has some thoughts, however. “Fleischer’s legacy, whether fairly or not, remains propagating Bush/Cheney myths—like Saddam Hussein attacked America on Sept. 11, 2001—which Americans don‘t want to hear,” he writes for Fox Sports. “Having him in behind the curtain gave the impression Woods had something to hide, and that words were being fed to him.”
