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

He is right it is the paparazzi's fault for following a 2 yr old around. Elin is an adult she is use to the flashes and idiots yelling at her. Their BABY'S should be left alone not stalked to feed some Paps pocket. My bet is most of the Stalker paps don't have kids if they did they would LEAVE THE KIDS ALONE.

It's the classy thing to do. When you've been out whoring around a lot, and the evil paparrazi show up at you daughter's daycare, naturally you send a letter of apology to the other Mommies and Daddies for the inconvenience. You caead about it in Miss Manners.

your wife has held her head up high, continued to parent (after complete humiliation by you) while you were hiding.
the press wanted you, but settled for your wife and kids because

RRRRRRRRRRRRR    

What is that 2 yr old little girl doing going to daycare??! Why can't her parents take care of her? That is ridiculous! Why are they farming her out when Elin and Tiger are financially stable so Elin does not have to work to put food in these children's mouths?

18. Look. You black people have gotten what you always want when someone offends your virgin ears and eyes. You got your apology. White 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 lighter than Oprah.Not one White, Norwegian or Scandanavian was ever interviewed. Just you all. Because you see, it never was about Tiger. It was, as it always has been, about you.

"find something better to do with their time"....hmmm...maybe if he'd had followed that advice, he and his family wouldn't be in this position. HE created all of this himself....I doubt he'll ever get that. It'll always be someone else's fault.

Elin doesn't have a job. Why does the 2-year-old need to be in day care?

I'm starting to get the feeling that Elin is just as elitist and egocentric as her dirtbag husband. Maybe they truly do deserve each other.

no. 15, kadi - God you're naive! It's wonderful that you like Tiger and you like Tiger's wife, but they have both been playing hardball with each other for quite some time. We can assume that she wasn't aware of all of his dicretions, but I think that it would be safe to say that she was not completely in the dark. Oh, they'll work it out alright. As for him not needing to try - Oh, he needs to try, and not only for his family. The financial fallout from this mess has been estimated at billions of dollars (yes billions, not millions), so he dedinitely needs to try. However I do agree that they could have taken action sooner, so that other people's children were not affected by all the craziness that has undoubtedly been going on at the school. But no, there children need to be in school, so to hell with everyone else's. I also agree with no. 9 Bren, in that there ought to be a law banning these photographers and 'other types' from going anywhere near a school.
