Golf icon Tiger Woods said he “just couldn’t stop” his promiscuous ways in a telling interview with The Golf Channel’s Kelly Tilghman Sunday, and RadarOnline.com has the clip for you.
“I tried to stop and I couldn’t stop, it was horrific,” Woods said of his well-publicized extramarital affairs, of which he has been linked to at least a dozen women. “It was disgusting behavior.”
Woods said putting his faith on the back burner was a huge mistake that paved the way for him to stray from his wife, Elin Nordegren.
“I quit meditating,” he said. “I quit being a Buddhist, and my life changed upside down.”
Woods then showed off a bracelet he said he intends to wear at the Masters and thereafter, so he does not lose his way again.
“It’s Buddhist,” he said of the bracelet. “It’s for protection and strength, and I certainly need that.”
Woods said of the November 27 incident between him and his wife Elin: “It’s all in the police report — beyond that, everything’s between Elin and myself, and that’s private.”
Nordegren, according to Woods, was “hurt, very hurt, shocked [and] angry — and, you know, she had every right to be and I’m as disappointed as everyone else in my own behavior, because I can’t believe I actually did that to the people I loved.
“I was living a life of a lie, I really was,” he said. “And I was doing a lot of things, like I said, that hurt a lot of people.”
As RadarOnline.com was first to report, Woods will return to golf next month, playing at the Masters Tournament at Augusta National Golf Club, which runs from April 5 through April 11.
