Jesper Parnevik was perhaps best known on the PGA tour for wearing funny hats. He’s now known for uttering the funniest quote on the Tiger Woods scandal.
The golfer who introduced Tiger to his wife, Elin Nordegren, who used to be Parnevik’s family nanny, hopes she “uses a driver next time instead of a 3 iron.”
LOL. No arguments here.
In all seriousness, the Swede said he feels badly for his former employee in light of Tiger Woods’ affairs with multiple women that were exposed this week.
“I’m kind of filled with sorrow for Elin since me and my wife are at fault for hooking her up with him,” he said. “We thought he was a better guy than he is.”
Jesper Parnevik is no fan of Tiger Woods after he cheated on Elin.
Earlier Wednesday, Woods acknowledged in a statement that he let his family down with unspecified “transgressions” that he regrets with “all of my heart.”
“I have not been true to my values and the behavior my family deserves,” Woods said on his site, adding that his “feelings should be shared by us alone.”
Tiger and Elin Woods are currently undergoing marriage counseling. He’s certainly got his work cut out for him. Even Parnevik feels partly responsible.
“I would probably have to apologize to her,” Parenevik said, joking in reference to Nike’s slogan that next time, Tiger should think “Maybe just don’t do it.”
JUST DO IT: Tiger Woods’ slogan with Nike – and women.
