Tiger Woods had his humiliating transgressions played for laughs on the television show ‘Saturday Night Live’, the world’s greatest golfer and his wife Elin parodied in a spoof just before midnight.
The NBC comedy show skit featuring Woods began as a parody of a CNN alert and went to a faux news conference where Woods, played by seventh-year cast member Kenan Thompson, was apologizing with supportive “Elin” at his side.
During the apology, Woods mentions multiple transgressions, which causes his wife to scream “multiple?” and the screen cuts to a new alert saying Woods had been taken back to the hospital again after he “fell down a flight of stairs and threw himself through a plate-glass window.”
“I’ve been really clumsy this week,” Thompson as Woods said, wearing a Woods’ logo black cap and the red shirt typically worn by Woods in final rounds. When his cell phone rings, the faux Elin yells, “Who is that?” and the screen cuts to another news break, this time saying Woods was hit by his own car. “Talk about a case of the Mondays,” said “Woods”. “This is all my fault. Believe it or not I ran over myself.” He added, “One good thing is I can get rid of this old thing and get a new model,” which angered “Elin” and sparked the last news break, “Woods” returning to the screen with the club bent over his head.
