Boy do Swede’s stick together in difficult times.. LPGA player, Helen Alfredsson, seems to have the back of Elin Nordegren and is the latest player to pile on Tiger Woods. According to the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet, Alfredsson heard about Tiger’s infidelities last July during the British Open played at Turnberry. Alfredsson is quoted as saying “In the quietest water swims the ugliest fish” referring to Tiger Woods. In the same article she questions why Tiger even got married and asked “is he not a bit cold” since he has girlfriends on the side while Elin is pregnant.
So now you have Jesper Parnevik along with Helen Alfredsson, both Swede’s, as the only two golfers to go on record so far about Tiger Woods and his infidelities. Guess all Swede’s stick together in times of turmoil. And if you screw one of them over, you better be ready for the wrath of Sweden to come down on you.
This is no surprise to me that she is the second person who has admitted they have heard rumors about Tiger’s infidelities. The media that goes from tournament to tournament and the players and caddies are all a close knit family between the first tournament and last tournament of the year. They all travel together and go to dinner together and hang out on the road. So if one person knew of Tiger doing this and said anything I am sure it gets around.
The only thing that does surprise me is it took this long to come out if the reports are true going back to four or five years ago.
