Tiger Woods Gives First Interview Since Scandal Broke; Says He Hopes Fans Will Still "Clap for Birdies" - Video 3/21/10
Here is video of ESPN interviewing Tiger Woods for five minutes yesterday, the first interview Woods has given since the day after Thanksgiving last year, when the whole Woods Sex Scandal began.
Woods would not talk about the details of the initial accident which put the scandal in the public eye. Woods said he has "hurt many people," but refused to discuss the kind of "treatment" he has been receiving.
Woods said he believes much of the trouble he got into was a result of his "getting away from Buddhism," and from "meditating."
In the interview, he said he "is a little nervous" about how fans will react. He said he hopes he will get "some claps" here and there, and that fans will "clap for birdies, too."
Woods said facing his wife and mother with the truth "has been brutal." He said his wife Elin was "shocked" and "very hurt" when she found out what was going on.
Woods is going to return to the PGA Tour by playing in The Masters, April 8-11, in Augusta, Georgia.
