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

Apparently, Tiger hung out with Michael Jordan and Charles Barkley, who were a bad influence on him.

Poor Tiger,
you got yourself your dumb blond swedish bimbo and two children to boot. Why not just get yourself a divorce, with all your money she will not be able to keep the children from you or will she go back as a babysitter for Parnevik to support her children?
After the divorce you can continue your golflive with all your sponsors amnd nobody will care about who you sleep with. Whatever you choose you wilol never be a Warren Beatty.

So sad...blaming every single person/thing other than himself. The only one to blame is YOU, Tiger. And to think Elin is sticking with him - so sad too.

Ok I think he's blaming the paps for the inconvenience they are causing the school and families. It doesn't make sense at first BUT it does really make sense!

Tiger has already apologized to everyone and he expects everyone will leave it all behind and move on.

Truth of the matter, everyone should move on about Tiger already. Done, fini, finished, OVER. Forget about burying the guy, are you without sin that you should cast the first stone?

Over and out..

screw him, he should have thought about this BEFORE he had all his skanks. and don't blame tmz like they are the only ones, tiger is everywhere you go. I like entertainment tonight even better cuz they investigate,lol. i still say he or she or both got away with a domestic that night and he's been lying since, so when you want to man up about that too, maybe you can believe you really are sorry dirtbag.

Tiger quit blaming others. Your actions lead to the creation of the daycare problem. For every action, there is a reaction. Didn't they teach you that at Stanford?

I am astounded @ the continued arrogance of this man. Doesn't he realize he's a public figure & his behavior has caused ALL of the fallout? & I find it interesting Elin put her name to this 'blame game'.

Tiger - a man faces up to his wrong doing - admits it and starts to make a better person of himself. Elin has shown herself to be the lady with the most class and strength of character you will ever meet! Your feelings of entitlement are unacceptable in this world. Your charade of being a solid family man while conducting your life like a male slut is what has brought this hounding by the paparazzi upon you and your family - It's been all your doing - not anyone elses.
To make a new start as a "real" person is a slow and day by day piece of work - actions speak much louder than words and you have alot of work ahead of you if you wish to keep your family.

I wish you and your family well - I commend Elin for the strength of character she has within and her continuing to be a caring mother to her children -

Remember this - fame and money can buy you "things" and take you to the depths of depravity but it cannot buy you true love, compassion or kindness. All the "things - the stuff" will not satisfy the longings of your soul. The most beautiful homes will not make you happy if your are lonely and sad within them. All the fame and celebrity in the world will not make you feel less lonely no matter how many fans praise you for your golf abilities.

I sincerely hope you change your attitude and character. Reflect on what has real value in life and show everyone you are a man who can be trusted again.

I think the emotional intelligence of the posters on TMZ is somewhere around 3rd grade. The constant vomiting of hate for Tiger Woods and his family is mental...seriously mental. You would think on cheated on YOU, you crazy people. Leave it alone, for God's sake. Judging by your posts, most of you need counseling more than Tiger does. Bunch of vitrolic rage-queens. And by the way? Tiger and Elin have every right to request that their children be left alone. They have every right to apologize to the school their daughter attends. Move on, people...get a life.

I hope none of you make mistakes and have the whole wolrd take them apart. We are lucky as our mistakes go unnoticed and we don't have to apologize to anyone, we move on. Yes this is the life the pick but when did we lose our humanity for the sake of some good gossip!
