Quotable: Tiger Woods’ Ex Says He Was An Amazing Boyfriend

“Tiger Woods was my boyfriend for a year and a half while we were both undergraduates at Stanford … I know who he is at his core because we were together during some of his most formative years. He was so human and cared so much about other people and the world around him. This may surprise some people, but Tiger was a great boyfriend. I have so many fond memories of our time together. … During our Southern California road trips Tiger and I spent a lot of time at the beach. We would steal a bottle of whiskey from Earl or I’d use my fake ID to buy a jug of wine, and we’d hang out and dream about the future. … The Tiger I knew was loyal, devoted and self-­controlled. I’m not naive, but I can say with certainty that he was faithful during the time we dated.”
