Three days after his divorce, champion golfer Tiger Woods has said he feels more sadness than relief.

Woods and his wife officially divorced on Monday, nine months after he was exposed for having numerous extramarital affairs.

Woods returned to golf on Wednesday at The Barclays tournament in New Jersey, the same day People magazine released an interview with his ex-wife, Elin Nordegren.

Woods said it is a sad time in his life because "you never go into a marriage looking to get divorced."

Meanwhile, speaking in New York on Wednesday, Betsy Glick, the editor of People magazine, which interviewed Nordegren, said Woods' former wife had a "few things that she really wants the world to know".

"She wants to set the record straight that she had no idea what was going on with Tiger, that she feels completely betrayed," Glick said.

"She also wants everybody to know that there was no violence inside or outside the home. This notion that she, you know, took a golf club to her husband is false," she added.
