Tiger Woods Says Being A Single Parent Is 'Tough.' Yeah, It's Tough—For Elin!

Tiger’s on a PR blitz to try to rebuild his image. Sorry Tiger, we’re glad you’ve accepted what you’ve done, but we still don’t feel bad for you. You’re gross.

Tiger Woods, 35, made his talk show return last night on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, where he got a couple of not-so-good laughs and chuckles from the audience. But he got past all that this morning (March 17) on Good Morning America and opened up about single fatherhood and his two kids with ex-wife Elin Nordegren, Sam, 3, and Charlie, 2. Is he really focusing on his children, or just trying to win back some of the sponsors he lost after his hooker scandal?

“It’s work, there’s no doubt,” the pro-golfer tells ABC‘s Robin Roberts of being a single dad. “It’s tough. But it’s enjoyable. That’s the work I love.”

Expanding on this, Tiger says he truly just enjoys spending time with his kids. “I just love being with them and seeing what they’re doing, what they’re capable of doing,” he says,” the joys, just the shifts of interest. … It’s just fun. We have a great time together.”

And although he’s busy traveling the world, competing in golf tournaments and participating in events, he always makes time to be with Sam and Charlie.

“I’m present with my kids,” he explains. “And that’s important, because to be with them each and every time I’m with them, to feel that and be connected to them and to see their joys on their faces, whether it’s Sam dancing and creating things and coloring and rearranging furniture and all that stuff.”

And while Sam’s dancing, Tiger says his 2-year-old tot is into anything related to sports. “Give him a stick and a ball,” Tiger says, “and he’s happy.” Next pro-golfer?

Robin noted that Tiger’s arrogant nature is completely gone and now he is truly humbled. And to be honest, it sounds like he is. “Family’s first. That’s the way it was when I was growing up,” he explains. “My mom and dad were always there … and that’s what I have with my kids now.”

We still don’t sympathize with him after what he did to Elin with all those hookers. What do you think?
