(Newser) – Now that Elin Nordegren has broken her silence about ex-hubby Tiger Woods' affairs, the golfer himself is issuing a public statement. But if you expected fireworks, look away, because it reads like a carefully choreographed follow-up to her interview. After praising Nordegren as a "wonderful mother" for her "unwavering concern" about their kids through this mess, he says that he is finally "learning to balance family and golf."

"My children come first and always will, but I also appreciate golf more than ever. I understand how important the fans and the game are to me. I know how lucky I am to do what I do for a living, and I am deeply grateful for everyone who has supported me." Read more at Radar.
