I guess we shouldn’t be surprised. When a major scandal such as this one hits, people come from all over the place claiming to have a connection to those involved. I would be willing to bet that this is just the beginning.

Most people know about the three alleged mistresses, but what about an old school golfer who first brought Tiger and Elin together? Enter Jesper Parnevik, sometimes spelled Jesper Parnevich. He has now come out claiming that Elin Nordegren used to be his nanny, and that he actually introduced her to Tiger a while back.

So what are his comments on Tiger and his wife? Here’s a bit of what he said:

“I really feel sorry for Elin – since me and my wife were at fault for hooking her up with him… We probably thought he was a better guy than he is.”

Wow. That’s pretty harsh considering that thus far Tiger has not admitted to any infidelity. Sure, he offered a vague apology, but no admission of guilt. The only supposed evidence there is was a voicemail provided by Jaimee Grubbs—which could have been faked. I’m not defending him, simply presenting the facts.

But wait, it gets even better—Jesper even threw in some zingers. He said:

“I would probably need to apologize to (Elin) and hope she uses a driver next time instead of a 3-iron [to break the back window of Woods’s car].”

Okay, he worked in a golf joke. All those apologies and not once does he say he’s sorry for wearing that God awful hat. Let’s see what else can he muster. Here we go again:

“…It’s a private thing of course, but when you are the guy he is, the world’s best athlete, you should think more before you do stuff … and maybe not ‘Just do it’, like Nike says.”

Looks like we’ve got a natural comedian on our hands. What do you think?
