World's top golfer Tiger Woods on Thursday admitted his own misdeeds wrecked his marriage and he wished his former wife Elin Nordegren ‘the best in everything,’ in every thing. They issued a joint statement too, without blaming each other but saying that they would be committed for the upbringing of their ‘wonderful’ kids.

"I wish her the best in everything," Woods told reporters in Paramus in New Jersey two days after their divorce, and added, "You know, it's a sad time in our lives. And we're looking forward in our lives and how we can help our kids the best way we possibly can. And that's the most important thing."

Woods said, "As far as my game and practicing, that's been secondary… We're trying to get our kids situation to our new living conditions and how that's going to be. That's where our focus is going to be right now".

Nordegren has also broken her nine-month silence about the scandal involving her husband and said that she never suspected her husband. "I have been through the stages of disbelief and shock, to anger and ultimately grief over the loss of the family I so badly wanted for my children," she told People magazine.

The scandal not only affected Tiger Woods, but the entire sports industry, especially golf-based ones, and his endorsers. The total losses are estimated in billions.
