Tiger Woods Interviews to Air Tonight

3/21/2010 5:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

ESPN will air a one-on-one interview with Tiger Woods tonight.

Tiger Woods

The interview will air at 7:30 PM ET.

UPDATE: Looks like there might be TWO Tiger Woods interviews airing tonight at the same time -- one on ESPN and one on The Golf Channel.

UPDATE 2: Both ESPN and The Golf Channel have promoted the interview. ESPN said the interview was conducted this morning and their reporter was allowed to ask whatever questions he wanted. Woods answered some, declined others, but was cordial throughout.

Read some highlights of the interview after the jump ...



On why he got married:

Woods: "Why? 'Cause I loved her. I loved Elin with everything I have. And that's something that makes me feel even worse. That I did this to someone I loved that much."

On the depth of his infidelity:

Woods: "Well, just one is enough. Um, and obviously that wasn't the case, and I've made my mistakes. And as I've said, I've hurt so many people, and so many people I have to make an amends to, and that's living a life of amends."

On all that has happened over the past year:

Woods: "A lot has transpired in my life. A lot of ugly things have happened. Things that have.....I've done some pretty bad things in my life. And uh, all came to a head. But now, after treatment, going for inpatient treatment for 45 days and more outpatient treatment, um, I'm getting back to my old roots."

On what happened the day of the car accident:

Woods: "Well you know it's all in the police report. Beyond that everything's between Elin and myself and that's private."

On why he didn't seek treatment before all the news broke:

Woods: "Well I didn't know I was that bad....stripping away denial, rationalization. You strip that away and you find the truth."

On the low points -- the moments of having to tell his wife and mother:

Woods: "They both have been brutal. They've both been very tough. Because I hurt them the most. Those are the two people in my life who I'm closest to and to say the things that I've done, truthfully to them, is...honestly was...very painful."

On what his measure of success will be at the Masters:

Woods: "Well, playing is one thing. I'm excited to get back and play, I'm excited to get to see the guys again. I really miss a lot of my friends out there. I miss competing. But still, I still have a lot more treatment to do, and just because I'm playing, doesn't mean I'm gonna stop going to treatment."

On the expected/hopeful reception from fans:

Woods: "I don't know. I don't know. I'm a little nervous about that to be honest with you...It would be nice to hear a couple claps here and there...but also hope they clap for birdies too (laughs)." For more sports stories, check out tmzsports.com!

95% of the male population out there would find Michelled Bombshell very sexually attractive.. becuase her appearance is dark and mysterious. She is beautiful, attractive and hot. Most of the haters on this post are women who are boring, sit at their computer and give their husband / partner a hard time if they asked them to swallow etc..

Women like Michelle Mcgee are more likely to be better in bed and will let the guy do anything he wants... equals.... a guys dream chick.

Did Michael Jackson die?

I haven't heard anything about it.

If true I'm sure it was from natural causes.

Stupididy at its best    

He bande de cons et d'idiots melez vous de vos affaires. C'est un golfeur pas un homme politique ou le Pape.
Que vous a t'il fait pour que l'insultiez de la sorte ??????
C'est votre ami ou votre frère ? NON donc fichez lui la paix. Il ne vous doit rien.
J'espère et je prie de tout mon coeur qu'il gagne le Masters et qu'il réalise le Grand Chelem. je paierai cher pour voir vos sales tronches de stupides américains dégénérés.
Maintenant retournez à vos misérables vies car vous êtes pathétiques. Pas étonnant que le monde entier vous hait.

Will he read the text where he asks to pee on a woman? Seriously, that dude is *ucked up! His wife should take him to the cleaners and divorce his sorry ass.

I hope that broad with all the texts shares them all. Nice image, Tiger.

Tiger Woods garbage mouth and lifestyle is a waste of any viewer's time.

Watch it if you are an idiot, a jerk, a moron. Tiger Woods WANTS YOU! ha-ha

Check out his eyes (drugs?)

Speak out at any tournament Tiger Woods has the nerve to participate in.....he doesn't deserve the SILENCE Tiger gave the media, fans, and consumers.

If it's associated with Tiger Woods, DON'T associate it with YOU!
