Tiger Woods Dissed Vick In 2007 For Waiting To Apologize

“If you made that big a mistake, you’ve got to come out and just be contrite, be honest and just tell the public that ‘I was wrong.’”

“Waiting a long time got a lot of people polarized. … If he would have come out earlier, he would’ve diffused a little more of it.”

In case you think that’s actually an SNL script, there’s video of Woods making the comments after the jump - plus a very interesting new tidbit about Woods caddy Steve Williams.

Ballengee also has more on Williams. As part of the recent interview Woods did for Australian TV, the ASSOCIATED PRESS noted:

“We talk about anything and everything together,” Woods said.

Williams told interviewer Murray Deaker he and Woods had a relationship that was “just like a marriage really.”

“The longer you go on, the more you know about one another,” Williams said.

Williams has gone on the record now twice vehemently denying that he knew anyting about Woods’ multiple affairs.
