Not Now! Pre-Taped Tiger Woods Interview: ‘Family First, Golf Second’

TigerCub-300x200On November 17th, ten days before his marriage-(and career?)-ruining car accident, Tiger Woods had no idea how the rest of his 2009 would play out. He was probably riding high, maybe enjoying his money and definitely giving an interview to New Zealand sports analyst Murray Deaker. Gossip Cop is reporting that although the interview was scheduled to air on Christmas day, because of um… unforeseen circumstances, the eight-minute clip aired today. And focused mostly on Tiger Woods: Family Man.

“[F]amily first and golf second… always been that way?” Deaker asked. “Always. Always,” Woods responded. Yeah.

About his wife, Elin Nordegren, Woods said she “has been great, actually, the best thing that ever happened.” And when it comes to balancing golf and family: “I don’t practice as much as I used to. I don’t spend the amount of hours on the golf course, not like I used to.” Jokes seem unnecessary here, or too easy, or cruel or… wait, what was that, Tiger?

“My focus is so much more intense than it used to be because I don’t have the time… I know whatever I have to get done [needs to be completed] in a shorter amount of time.”

There are no words.
