Woods speaks of family values in interview

Tiger Woods spoke of his commitment to his family during an interview screened in New Zealand on Tuesday, but conducted in the days before his car crash and subsequent admission of several infidelities.
Asked in the interview "family first and golf second...always been that way?", Woods replied: "Always. Always."
He goes on to say that having a family _ he has two young children with wife Elin Nordegren _ "has been great, actually, the best thing that ever happened."
The interview was conducted on Nov.17 _ ten days prior to the accident outside his Florida family home which prompted reports of marital strife. The world's No.1 golfer later admitted to liaisons with other women.
Woods says he has applied time management skills learned at Stanford University to his dual roles as a golfer and father and had been more focused as a player since he became a family man.
"I don't practice as much as I used to. I don't spend the amount of hours on the golfcourse, not like I used to" he said.
"But my focus is so much more intense than it used to be.
"I know whatever I have to get done (has to be done) in a shorter amount of time."
The interview, conducted in Melbourne, Australia where Woods was playing in the Australian Masters, was due to be aired on Christmas Day but New Zealand's Sky Sport brought it forward after the revelations about Woods' private life.
