No sooner than he had issued a (sort of) apology for his “transgressions” earlier today on his web site, Tiger Woods heard from one person whom he probably thought would not criticize him: Jesper Parnevik.
Parnevik, 44, is the Swedish golfer who, along with his wife, Mia, introduced Elin Nordegren to Woods. The Golf Channel interviewed him at the PGA Tour’s qualifying tournament West Palm Beach, Fla., where he was competing on Wednesday. And for this approach shot, Parnevik removed the kid gloves.
“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,” Parnevik said. “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.”
And then this:
“It’s a private thing of course,” he said. “But when you are the guy he is, the world’s best athlete, you should think more before you do stuff.”
Finally someone gets to the heart of this mess. “You should think more before you do stuff.” A thousand philosophers on a thousand laptops couldn’t put it any better.
