Swedish newspaper AFTONBLADET reports LPGA player Helen Alfredsson confirmed to Sweden’s TV4 what has long been discussed in hushed tones by golf media: Tiger Woods’ infidelity talk among golfers started last July at The Open at Turnberry.
Last Sunday, Alan Shipnuck of SPORTS ILLUSTRATED reported:
I remember at Turnberry, after Woods missed the cut, a few of us were sitting in the press room discussing the various rumors we’d heard about Tiger and Elin having a big blowup that week and whether or not that played a role in his poor play. It was out there, but no one asked Tiger a question about it before he fled. In the future, I’m sure someone will ask the question.

Swede Alfredsson? Same:
“I heard it last summer during the British Open. In the quietest water swims the ugliest fish.”
There’s something odd about him. If he just paid for the escorts, I would’ve understood it a bit more. Then no one needed to know. But he did everything and had a girlfriend and everything. What I do not understand is why he got married. When he says to the girl that he can not see her because he has family matters, when Elin will give birth, is he not a bit cold?
So what’s worse, having your allegedl infidelity exposed 19 straight days on the cover of the NEW YORK POST, or being called “cold” by a swede?
With Elin Nordegren a swede, probably not a coincidence that the only criticism of Woods by pro golfers has come from swedes Alfredsson and Jesper Parnevik.
