Jesper Parnevik: Elin should have used driver on Tiger

Parnevik Pro golfer and one-time matchmaker Jesper Parnevik isn't pleased with Tiger Woods following Woods' apology on Wednesday.

Tiger's wife, Elin Nordegren, worked as a family nanny for Parnevik before he introduced her to Woods. On Wednesday, Parnevik told reporters, essentially, he regrets setting up their relationship and that Nordegren should be a little tougher on her husband.

"I'm kind of filled with sorrow for Elin since me and my wife are at fault for hooking her up with him, and we probably thought he was a better guy than he is.

"I would probably have to apologize to her and hope she uses a driver next time instead of a three-iron."

It might be a good idea for Woods to keep his distance from Parnevik the next time he sees him on the fairway.
