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.

"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.
