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, 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

How is going to play with your friends a couple of hours a week where you learn songs, do art and learn songs being dumped on someone else? I'm sure that Elin does read to her, play with her and colors with her. She's the one that has to do the job of both parents while her good for nothing husband bangs pancake waitresses.

And since when is there something wrong with kids today to go and have fun and get a head start on learning?

Stupididy at its best    

Hey America wake up. Your country surely is going down down ....
Why do you care so much about a guy who cheated while your economy is bankrupt, unemployment is rising, you are fighting in Afghanistan and Irak.....
I live in Europe and really this story would have ever ever made an headline. This is becoming really insane. You sure have serious issues to care about this kind of stuff.
Mind your own business and get a life.
As far as the paparazzis I am completely on Tiger's side. Innocent children are involved. Here it is FORBIDDEN to publish pictures of famous children. The faces are always covered. Didn't you learn about Princess Diana ???? WTF with you.... I hope one day there will be laws when paparazzis can be sued. This is pathetic to stalk children. Disgusting and insane.....
Go back to your own issues. This should be well enough I think !

Regardless of whos fault it is or what he did. It doesn't make it right for the pap to follow his daughter to school. She had nothing to do with it nor did Elin they need to leave them alone.

This will be my first and only comment on this site. Why do you people come to this site? Seriously. Why? Run by trash, talking about trash with employees who are out to do nothing buy r.a.p.e. and pilage stars. Just leave them alone. Why do you people really care what Tiger or Brad and Angie or any of these people are doing? I want to take a poll on what is the biggest form of s.c.u.m. out there. This, Enquirer, Perez Hilton? All toilet trash to me. I'm just fascinated by the Jerry Springer crowd that follows a site like this.

Tiger why not hold another hand picked saturaday night live press conference (without the press) to address this matter again. Apparently none of your hand picked card board cutouts in the room were from your daughter's school and while your at it yell at us again for disrespecting Elin.

Let me get this straight. Elin used to be a babysitter watching other people kids until she meet Tiger and didn't have to babysit anymore. Now that she is rich she hires a nanny and takes her daughter to daycare. So what is this cu** doing at the house when everybody gone. This bimbo bit** is not innocent like most woman aren't they are just so slick they don't get caught which is probably what she is doing. That's why she is staying cause it doesn't matter to her. Something is wrong with ANY woman who doesn't work and has a live-in nanny and still drop her child at day-care. She does not sound like to great wife and mother you delusional people have been talking about. Typical for a white woman they don't even know what hard work and responsibility looks like.

Oh, Miss Scarlett, Miss Scarlett...Where to begin? A two year old does not really have friends. At just barely 2, they mostly parallel play, meaning they play independently. They are self focused, and mostly don't play interactively with other children. There is nothing that her daycare does for her that Elin could not do, if Elin was motivated to do so. Elin, also has a nanny, I understand. How much time do you think this poor little girl spends each week in non-parent care? How do you know this school is "only a couple of hours per week"? Even that is too long. That time is so precious with children that age, and they are so impressionable. What a waste! Elin carried herself with such grace during this whole fiasco, but I am rapidly losing respect for her. She needs to get off her lazy butt and devote her time to her kids.
