Report: Helen Alfredsson knew about Tiger Woods' affairs

Posted at 4:35 PM by Ryan Reiterman | Categories: Tiger Woods

The Swedes aren't holding back when it comes to commenting on the Tiger Woods scandal. First Jesper Parnevik said he regretted ever introducing Elin to Tiger, and now, according to the New York Daily News, Helen Alfredsson said she'd heard rumors about Tiger's affairs.

Golf pro Helen Alfredsson became the first of Woods' peers to breach the green wall of silence Wednesday when she revealed it was common knowledge on the circuit that he was cheating on wife Elin Nordegren.

"I heard it last summer during the British open," Alfredsson told Sweden's TV4 station.

That Woods managed to keep his womanizing under wraps for so long clearly galled Alfredsson, who is Swedish, like Nordegren.

"In the quietest water swims the ugliest fish," she said.

Alfredsson, 44, called Woods "cold" and said there is "something odd about him."

"If he just paid for the escorts, I [would] understand it a bit more," she said. "Then no one needed to know. But now he did everything and a girlfriend and everything."

Alfredsson, who is married to former National Hockey League player Kent Nilsson, said she wondered why Woods bothered to get hitched.

"When he says to the girl that he cannot see her because he has family matters, when Elin will give birth, is he not a bit cold?" she asked.
