This is great!!!! confirms this one is fact.
Recommend you go visit Snopes as their comments are even more insitefull  

 Tiger Woods received a special invitation to speak at the
 inauguration.  His  inviters were stunned, when he did not deliver the message
 they expected.   You will see why the media swept it under the rug with no
 further ado, who &  why of a certain element is pissed off at Tiger.  
 Below is the text of his speech, entitled:
 "You'll Never Walk Alone," as posted on his Web site:  
 "I grew up in a military family - and my role models
 in life were my Mom and Dad, Lt. Colonel Earl Woods.  My dad was a Special Forces
 operator and many nights friends would visit our home. They represented every
 branch of the service, and every rank.  
 "In my Dad, and in those guests, I saw firsthand the dedication and
 commitment of those who serve. They come from every walk of
 life. From every part of our country. Time and again, across generations,
 they have defended our safety in the dark of night and far from home.  
 "Each day -- and particularly on this historic day --
 we honor the men and women in uniform who serve our country and protect our
 freedom. They travel to the dangerous corners of the world, and we must remember
 that for every person who is in uniform, there are families who wait for
 them to come home safely.  
 "I am honored that the military is such an important
 part, not just of my personal life, but of my professional one as well. The golf
 tournament we do each year here in Washington is a testament to those unsung
 "I am the son of a man who dedicated his life to his
 country, family and the military, and I am a better person for it.  
 "In the summer of 1864, Abraham Lincoln, the man at
 whose memorial we stand, spoke to the 164th Ohio Regiment and said: 'I am
 greatly obliged to you, and to all who have come forward at the call of their
 "Just as they have stood tall for our country - we
 must always stand by and support the men and women in uniform and their families  
 "Thank you, and it is now my pleasure to introduce the US Naval Glee Club."  
 I have never been more proud of Tiger Woods than when I
 heard his 2-minute tribute to the military at the Inaugural Celebration in
 Washington DC. You know he was greatly pressured to be there. Liberals have
 been mad at him for a decade for not joining their ranks. You know he
 didn't want to be there.   So instead of paying homage to Obama, he paid tribute to
 our soldiers. Not one time did tiger mention Obama, the inauguration or the
 new administration. He knew beforehand that his love for America, and
 appreciation for our military men & women would anger them further.  But
 Tiger is his own man; his father taught him to be his own man.  
 Somewhere over that cold, gray Washington sky, old Earl
was smiling down on his beloved son.  And there will be one more
 crying hug waiting for Tiger when he passes through the Pearly Gates into
 God's arms.
