'I was living a lie,' says Tiger Woods in new interview

Monday March 22, 2010

In his first interview since admitting his string of affairs, Tiger Woods has revealed he is feeling nervous about the reception awaiting him when he returns to golf next month.

“I’m a little nervous about that to be honest with you,” he told ESPN. “It would be nice to hear a couple of claps hear and there.”

“I was living a life of a lie, I really was. And I was doing a lot of things that hurt a lot of people," the sportsman added.

"I hurt a lot of people, not just my wife,” he said. “My friends, my colleagues, the public, kids who looked up to me. There were a lot of people that thought I was a different person and my actions were not according to that. That’s why I had to apologise. I was so sorry for what I had done.”

Tiger is returning to golf in two weeks' time for the Masters tournament in Augusta, Georgia.
