You may have forgotten that Tiger’s wife Elin actually used to be an au pair for golfer Jesper Parnevik, and that it was Jesper who introduced the two.
Anyway, he regrets it.
ESPN: Nordegren, 29, began working for the Parneviks as a nanny in 2000. She was first introduced to Woods at the 2001 British Open and they were married in 2004.
“I would be especially sad about it since I’m kind of — I really feel sorry for Elin — since me and my wife were at fault for hooking her up with him,” Parnevik said. “We probably thought he was a better guy than he is. I would probably need to apologise to her and hope she uses a driver next time instead of the 3-iron.”
And then he took at dig at Tiger’s big sponsor
“It’s a private thing of course,” he said. “But when you are the guy he is, the world’s best athlete, you should think more before you do stuff … And maybe not just do it, like Nike says.”
