Golfers Ben Crane And Charles Warren Diss Tiger Woods Publicly
UPDATE: The Associated Press reports Ben Crane and Charles Warren claim they never spoke to Life & Style Magazine.
A PGA-Tour golfer Ben Crane spoke out publicly about the scandal revolving around Tiger Woods's alleged affairs. In an interview to the Life & Style Magazine, Crane said, "This is no surprise to anyone who knows Tiger. He's a phony and a fake and he can't retain that squeaky-clean endorsement deal any longer."
Crane, who has four professional wins on the PGA circuit, is about the same age as Woods and is known to be a devoted Christian. He lives with his wife Heather and a baby girl in Texas. Crane also suggested Woods's wife Elin Nordegren probably knew about her husband's affairs, but chose to keep silent.
Another PGA golfer Charles Warren has also commented on the situation. He said he thinks Tiger Woods's wife should leave him.
"What kind of message would that send to her sister and mother and all the women out there?" Warren said. "That your husband can be a bastard but as long as he makes the deal worthwhile, you'll stay?"
Although it is highly unusual for golf players to make comments about each other in public, Crane and Warren are not the first golfers to voice their negative opinion about Woods. Swedish golfer Jesper Parnevik said recently he regretted introducing Woods to his future wife Elin Nordegren. He said, "I would be especially sad about it – I really feel 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 apologise to her."
