Parnevik: Woods has lost my respect
Jesper Parnevik reiterated his criticism of Tiger Woods and said he had “lost all respect” for the world’s number one golfer.
Jesper Parnevik reiterated his criticism of Tiger Woods on Thursday night and said he had “lost all respect” for the world’s number one golfer.
Woods on Wednesday apologised on his official website for “transgressions” and “personal sins and failings”, while an American tabloid has published allegations of an affair between the married father-of-two and a Los Angeles cocktail waitress.
Former European Ryder Cup star Parnevik and his wife introduced fellow Swede Elin Nordegren to her future husband, and on Wednesday at the PGA Tour qualifying school in West Palm Beach, Florida, the 44-year-old spoke out against Woods.
Parnevik told the Golf Channel: “It’s always sad, and especially sad because me and my wife were at fault hooking her up with him and we probably thought he is a better guy than he is.
“I would probably apologise to her and when you’re a world-class athlete you probably should think a bit more before you do stuff.”
On Thursday, after completing his round at West Palm Beach, Parnevik again spoke to reporters on the subject.
“I haven’t really talked to Tiger yet so I don’t want to say too much but my heart goes out to her,” the Swedish golfer said.
“There’s nothing I regret (saying) and I stand by everything. He’s lost all my respect, I mean, all the respect I had for the guy is gone, that’s pretty much all I can say.”
Parnevik added: “I’ve tried to get through to him through his managers and secretaries but it’s not easy but it doesn’t really matter, what’s done is done.”
The Golf Channel also reported that Parnevik had said: “Elin is having a very tough time.”
