Tiger Woods is preparing his return to golf following his self-imposed exile to deal with, um, domestic issues.

ESPN is reporting that Woods has hired PR maven Ari Fleischer (George W. Bush's former press secretary) to help smooth his return to the game.

Mark McGwire also hired Fleischer this year to help the ex-slugger return from a self-imposed exile over steroids. Fleischer secured Big Mac a tearful interview with Bob Costas, but failed miserably to stop a full-fledged media assault during McGwire's first return to St. Louis following his steroid confession.
