(Newser) – Tiger Woods' pal Jesper Parnevik is sorry he ever introduced the champ to his nanny Elin Nordegren and he has one piece of advice for his fellow Swede: Next time, use "a driver rather than a 3-iron" when she goes after her errant hubby." I really feel sorry for Elin since me and my wife were at fault for hooking her up with him," the golfer said. "We probably thought he was a better guy than he is. I need to apologize to her."

Parnevik, who hired Nordegren in 2001, says he thinks of her like a little sister, the New York Daily News reports. Woods' life is "a private thing, but when you are the guy he is, the world's best athlete, you should think before you do stuff and not 'Just do it' like Nike says," Parnevik notes.
