Swedish golfer Jesper Parnevik has decided to weigh in on the Tiger Woods affair scandal and with good reason. It turns our he is the one who introduced Elin Nordegren to the PGA phenom back in 2000, when she and her twin sister Josefin Nordegren were both employed by his family as nannies to the Parnevik children.

The 44-year-old Swede and his wife Mia Parnevik hired the Nordegren sisters to serve as au pairs for their three offspring. He has now come forward with an irate response to Woods’ current situation. He said, “I would be especially sad about it since I’m kind of — I feel really sorry for Elin — since me and my wife were at fault for hooking her up with him. We probably thought he was a better guy than he is. I would probably need to apologize to her and hope she uses a driver next time instead of the 3-iron.”

Ironically, Mia was also a nanny to a family in Florida when she met her future husband Jesper in 1986. They currently reside in Jupiter, Florida – photos below.

Reporters caught up with Parnevik on Wednesday at Bear Lakes Country Club where he had just finished up the first-round play at a PGA Tour final-stage qualifier. He offered up the following advice for Tiger: “Maybe not just do it, like Nike says.”
