Jesper Parnevik Sorry He Introduced Tiger Woods To Elin Nordegren
Jesper Parnevik, a golfer from Sweden who introduced Tiger Woods to Elin Nordegren, is reportedly sorry for hooking the two up. Parnevik introduced Woods and Nordegren during the 2001 British Open when Nordegren was working as his au pair, a domestic assistant living as part of a host family. Woods and Nordegren became engaged in 2003 and officially married one year later in 2004. Parnevik said he felt that he owned Nordegren an apology.
"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."
He added: 'It's a private thing of course but when you are the guy he is, the world's best athlete, you should think more before you do stuff.'
Parnevik's comments follow the release of an apology statement on Tiger Woods's website in which Tiger apologizes for his "transgressions" and "personal sins." Three women came out alleging they had an affair with Woods ever since his car accident on November 27. One of the women - Jaimee Grubbs had a tangible "proof" of her relationship with Woods. She released a voicemail message that Tiger left for her, asking Grubbs to change the name on her phone because his wife "went through [his] phone and might be calling [her]."
