Tiger Woods Apologizes to Pre-School Parents

2/23/2010 1:17 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren have issued a letter of apology to the parents at the Florida school where their 2-year-old daughter, Sam, attends day care classes.

Tiger Woods and wife Elin Nordegren

In the letter, obtained by WFTV9.com, Woods blames the paparazzi for creating an "inconvenience" around the Premier Academy in Windermere over the past few months.

Here is the letter in its entirety:

Dear Premier Academy parents,

We would like to share our appreciation for your support over the past several months and offer our personal apology for any inconvenience you are experiencing due to the increased media scrutiny surrounding our children. We truly understand how frustrating it can be.

We hope that the paparazzi will find something better to do with their time in the near future. In the meantime, it is our goal to keep life as normal as possible for our children. We are sure that as parents you can appreciate that. For Sam, that normalcy means attending the school that she enjoys so much.

Again, we truly appreciate the support from the entire Premier Academy family.

Kind regards,

Elin and Tiger Woods

Elin, I thought you would be the strong one and leave. I guess your right there with Hillary Clinton and the rest of the wealthy women who have no respect for themselves. Isn't $55 million enough. How would you feel if your father did this to your mother and your mother stayed with him? Think about it, are you really doing this for your kids or the additional millions? Sad, very sad.

You mean you offer your personal apology?
So yeah..it has nothing to do with you sleeping around on your wife for many years..It's the paps fault..lol my god!
Funny how it works..everything was fine before you got BUSTED. So once again, you aren't taking the blame for it.

Are you kidding? Blame the media, blame everybody...blame yourself, Tiger. Celebrity is not a shield, not an armor. We are all accountable for our own actions.

How does tiger cheating equal his kids gettin harrassed by paps? Huh morons? How bout you go give attention to all the whores out there who slept with a married man? Or you keep trying to find tiger in whichever hidden places hes at this week? Him sleeping around has ABSOLUTLY nothing to do with his kids. The only reason why people are interested in their kids is because their lives are so boring that they have to dream what it would be like to be successful in life. So in turn they turn to the celebrities. Leave his kids alone, They didnt tell dad to cheat, they didnt tell mom to stop giving it up to him. Go after the parenst and leave the kids alone aholes

I really like Tiger Woods. I know what he has done is awful! But I think deep down somewhere he is a good person. I just think he has lost his way. The fact that he is trying to aplogize is the HARD road. He could very easily have told his wife he wanted a divorce & played hard ball w/ her. But he isn't taking the easy road he is fighting to repair the damage. I really like Tiger's wife!! And I hope Tiger NEVER apologized to the whores. But I do think they shouldn't be taking thier kids to a daycare at this time. Go somewhere & hide for awhile. You can hire plenty of people to teach the kids. I would not have let the paps snap pictures of me w/ my kids every day. I really hope Elin & Tiger work this out. I do believe Elin has a big heart and is the woman for the task. And I do believe people can truly change. He doen'st even need to try but he wants to.

Look. You white people have gotten what you always want when someone offends your virgin ears and eyes. You got your apology. Black people and people of other races are so sorry that they cannot be as pure and good as you. So when they screw up they know they have to grovel to your greatness. You all have your apologies now......so move on and wait until the next one offends you.

If you think the above is wrong and offensive, think back on who talked about apologies on t.v. Think about EVERYONE who was interviewed about Tiger. Look at the color of the people who were demanding apologies. Not a single one was darker than Julia Roberts. Not one Black, Asian or Hispanic was ever interviewed. Just you all. Because you see, it never was about Tiger. It was, as it always has been, about you.
