(Newser) – Giving interviews for the first time since the November car crash that kicked off a snowballing sex scandal, Tiger Woods talked with ESPN and the Golf Channel yesterday. Some highlights:

  • On facing his wife and mother: "They both have been brutal. They've both been very tough."
  • The car crash: "It's all in the police report. Beyond that, everything's between Elin and myself."


  • Why he got married: "Because I loved her. I loved Elin with everything I have."
  • The current state of his marriage: "We're working on it."
  • The bracelet he says he'll be wearing the rest of his life: "It's Buddhist, it's for protection and strength, and I certainly need that."
  • The bottom line: "I've done some pretty bad things in my life. But now I'm getting back to my old roots. "
