Matchmaker Parnevik hits out at Woods

WORLD No1 Tiger Woods&rsquo; troubles have deepened after he was subjected to a stinging personal rebuke by fellow player Jesper Parnevik, the man whose former nanny Elin went on to become Woods&rsquo; wife.<br /><br />Woods, 33, has been the subject of intense scrutiny in recent days amid allegations of extramarital affairs, and on Wednesday issued a lengthy statement saying he had &ldquo;let his family down&rdquo;.<br /><br />Parnevik, 44, yesterday broke ranks with the rest of the golfing community by criticising the highest-earning sportsman in the world, saying he wished he had never introduced Elin to Woods.<br /><br />&ldquo;I feel very sad of course,&rdquo; said the Swede. &ldquo;I really feel sorry for Elin since me and my wife were at fault for hooking her up with him. We probably thought he was a better guy than he is. I would probably need to apologise to her.&rdquo;<br /><br />Referring to suggestions &ndash; vehemently denied by Woods &ndash; that an attack by Elin had contributed to his car crash last week, Parnevik added: &ldquo;I hope she uses a driver next time instead of a three iron.&rdquo;<br /><br />And in a reference to one of Woods&rsquo; many lucrative sponsorship contracts, former world No7 Parnevik said: &ldquo;It is a private thing of course, but when you are the guy he is, when you are the world&rsquo;s best athlete, you should think a little before you do stuff, and maybe not &lsquo;just do it&rsquo;, like Nike says.&rdquo;<br /><br />Rachel Uchitel, one of the women romantically linked with Woods, yesterday cancelled a press conference.
