Tiger Woods is Sad, Wishes Elin the Best

by at . Comments

Earlier today, Elin Nordegren broke her silence for the first time since her now-former husband's sordid sexual dalliances were exposed late last year.

Now Tiger Woods has made his first remarks since their divorce was finalized earlier this week, speaking at New Jersey's Barclays golf tournament.

Elin Nordegren's New House

"I wish her the best in everything," he said of Elin.

Tiger Woods married Elin Nordegren in 2004.

"It's a sad time in our lives. And we're looking forward to how we can help our kids the best way we possibly can. And that's the most important thing."

When a reporter asked the world's #1 golfer if he still loves Elin Nordegren, Tiger didn't answer, instead repeating, "That's the most important thing."

Asked if he was relieved, the star said, "I don't think that's the word ... I think it's just more sadness. Because I don't think you ever – you don't ever go into a marriage looking to get divorced. That's the thing. That's why it is sad."

Following months of speculation, Tiger Woods' divorce was finalized this week in Bay County, Fla. Elin is expected to receive up to $100 million in assets.

Tiger, whose reputation and golf game have not been the same since many women alleged affairs with him, admits he would change things if he could.

"My actions certainly led us to this decision," he said. "I've certainly made a lot of errors in my life and that's something I'm going to have to live with."

After saying that the divorce "was a lot more difficult than I was letting on," Woods addressed Elin's interview. "I certainly understand that she is sad."

"And I feel the same way."

No word if he plans to take Rachel Uchitel up on her offer.

Elin Nordegren was largely viewed as the victim in all of this, and with good reason. Given the number of women Woods slept with, Elin will have a tough time playing any role but victim.

my message to everyone that believes Elin interview with the People's Magazine is the truth is a fool and lack wisdom. Elin made costly mistake and has exposed herself to the media by thinking that if sell your story that media will live you alone. Elin caused Tiger the chance of winning the cup by sell your story the eve of a major tournament I see this an act of revenge.

I have great admiration for Elin, she is married to a sex addict who thinks a few months in Rehab will 'fix' him....she knows better and walked away, in her statement she mentioned 'trust and honesty' - that says it all. However, he IS and will always be an addict, recovering or not!

Sad, good riddens to this whore monger. Nothing worse than
a pussy chaser for a husband. Go get his money girl and while you are at it give him a Bobit before he drags his sorry ass out the door.

tiger grew up suffering for and with his mom because of the infidelities of his dad. he became 10 times worse and lavished on it. i don't think he's ever gonna run from that life. the thing he despised became his addiction, it gives him the same power and satisfaction as "the number one golfer".
