Today, two days after Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren finalized their divorce, Tiger held a press conference and admitted that his mistakes led to the divorce and now he is filled with sadness.
Before Tiger focused on his first US PGA playoff event, he wanted to speak out on his divorce from Elin.
“My actions certainly led us to this decision,” Tiger said. “I made a lot of errors in my life. That’s something I’m going to have to live with.”
Is he relieved now that he’s divorced?
“I don’t think that’s the word,” he answered. “I think it’s more sadness.”
Tiger responded to Elin’s comments that their divorce felt like a death and said, “I certainly understand she is sad and I feel the same way.”
But he avoided answering whether he still loved Elin.
“I wish her the best in everything,” he replied. “It’s a sad time in our lives. We’re looking forward in our lives and how we can bring up our kids the best way we can. That’s the most important thing.”
“It’s a sad time. As far as my game and practicing, that has been secondary. We’re trying to get our kids used to our new living conditions,” he explained of their 3-year-old daughter Sam and 19-month-old son Charlie. “That has been our priority right now.”
