HONOLULU — Jesper Parnevik is trying to stay out of the loop when it comes to Tiger Woods’ marriage so he won’t say anything he might regret.
No other PGA Tour player had such a personal stake in Woods’ infidelity than Parnevik, who once employed Woods’ wife, Elin, as a nanny and was responsible for introducing them.
Woods has not been seen in public in two months, and Parnevik said Tuesday he doesn’t know if they will stay together.
“I’ve kind of stayed out of it,” he said at the Sony Open, his first tournament of the year. “It’s better that people don’t approach me if I don’t know anything. That way I don’t say anything that I shouldn’t have. Like if she told me something and I let it slip out. It’s better that I don’t know, so I can say, ‘I don’t know.’
