Tiger Woods has come under attack from the golfer who set him up with wife Elin Nordegren.
Swedish Ryder Cup star Jesper Parnevik has issued a public apology to compatriot Nordegren in light of Woods’ confession that he was striving to be a ‘better father and husband’.
World No 1 Woods has faced lurid claims about his private life since injuring himself in a car crash outside his Florida home last week.
There were claims, denied by Woods that Nordegren chased her husband with a golf club immediately before the accident and angry Parnevik advised her to ‘use a driver next time rather than a three-iron’ next time.
‘I feel especially sad about it as I feel sorry for Elin as me and my wife are at fault for hooking her up with him,’ said Parnevik.
‘We probably thought he was a better guy than he is.’
Nordegren worked as an au pair for Parnevik and his wife Mia in 2001.
Woods, 33, has admitted ‘transgressions’ but insisted that the details remained a private matter.
