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!

That slutty porn star joslyn james has no soul whatsoever. Tiger probably is doing these interviews in desperation to move the focus away from his affairs to golf. those messages were private and better yet that porn skank left out her messages to tiger. if tiger really did those things as she said he texted her then why did she choose to stay with him in the relationship. this is a ploy from the porn star to make tiger look violent and perverted sex freak. at least the other skanky mistresses have a little bit of heart left to say they had an affair but moved on. the other slutty mistresses never mentioned things like these that tiger did except the porn star...i mean what do you expect from a porn star.. of course tiger is going to talk dirty to her maybe because she wanted him to degrade her because she has no self respect.

Q    

I think its so funny that Tigers mistresses are porn stars, strippers and hookers but yet they say "I am not a home wrecker or a whore" then what does that make them? decent women who have class? LOL!!! yeah right and I don't know why his wife is putting up with all of this and staying with him, he obviously can't keep it in his pants, hasn't she ever heard of the saying "once a cheater, always a cheater" ? he will do it again..no doubt, its only a matter of time. Some people are so stupid.

Wow! I'll bet this interview is going to be so revealing & insightful...not!
I just hope they remember to put some fresh batteries in Tiger's back before the interview begins...'cause the last time he spoke in public, he...sounded...a...little...slow. Not...unlike...a...ro-bot.

Tiger Woods has the personality of a witch's broom.

Tiger Woods has the brains of a stink bug.

Tiger Woods has had the media by the short ha*rs for soooo long.. it's time to give Tiger a taste of his own medicine!

Tiger Woods agents, public relation firm, corporate sponsors can now be measured by the Tiger-slime they all have slithered in for so long. You all deserve each other.

If it stinks of Tiger Woods, rid yourself of all brands, products, etc. that smell from the stench Tiger Woods created.

@"17. Does anyone know if Tiger ever poops/pees and slaps any black women or only whites???"

Most black women aren't down with that crap. And... Tiger doesn't really identify with blacks. So, he probably wouldn't go after a black woman which is why he is in this mess. A black woman would have probably taken a pay off and called it a day. If she was a good Gold digger, she definitely would be set for life. lol

He's asking for it. He's a degenerate punk and he's asking for it. He made his karma bed and he doesn't know it, but he's calling it home and it's coming fast and hard. There is no other option for a determined user and abuser like that. Indeed, let the games begin, it's going to be real disgusting. I hope the Masters can move through this with an absolute minimum of damage.

As your bobble-head Jesus I'm totally convinced Tiger Woods is totally fixed up after his mini-visit to some idiotic sex-yoga clinic and will be much nicer to the next round of whores, hookers, sluts and VIP Lounge STD meat that he takes home while he tells Elin and Nike and Larry King that he's out practicing his strokes. Slick little bastard! Take your golf hat off and show everyone your red horns!

Q    

my opinion is..if Tiger wanted to be a man whore and sleep with tons and tons of women then he shouldn't have gotten married in the first place, if he was single and doing that no one would really care, I have no respect for people who cheat on their mates, its wrong, selfish and it makes you a peice of sh*t, don't get married or be in a relationship if you're going to sleep around, his wife crazy for staying with him, she is just going to get hurt again, watch and see.
