Tiger Woods Gives First Interviews
“I’ve done bad things,” admits the golf star, who conducted his first two interviews, which aired last night.
“I’ve done some pretty bad things in my life,” Tiger Woods said yesterday in his first interviews since his sex scandal broke. Talking with both ESPN and the Golf Channel, Woods admitted he had made some major mistakes, “but now I’m getting back to my old roots.”
In the televised interviews, which aired at the same time Sunday night, Woods says he and his wife Elin are working on their marriage and that he’s been wearing a Buddhist bracelet to give him protection and strength during this difficult time. He also admitted his wife and mother “have been brutal” in their reactions to his transgressions, and that the details of his controversial car crash in November are “all in the police report. Beyond that, everything’s between Elin and myself.”
As the Associated Content notes, Woods’ interviews on ESPN and the Golf Channel were aired at a very convenient time for the golf star. Not only were they given very little promotion before they aired, but they were also on at the same time as two major televised events: the passing of the health care bill and the wrapping up of the NCAA tournament. It seems Woods got away with finally conducting interviews, but in a way that ensured they would get as little attention as possible. (Newser, Associated Content)
