He's only been divorced for two days, but notorious cheater Tiger Woods is talking about the deep emotional toll the breakup of his marriage to Elin Nordegren has taken on him.

The mistress-loving linkster spoke about the split and his now ex-wife from New Jersey's Ridgefield Country Club, where he's playing in the Barclays tournament.

Take it away, Tiger...

"It's a sad time in our lives and were looking forward in our lives and how we can help our kids as best we can. I think thats the most important thing. It's a sad time and we're going through it right now," he told reporters during a press conference.

Must be hard to concentrate on a little white ball when it's the same day People magazine released your spurned ex's own interview where she says she's "been through hell." The duo was officially divorced Monday, nine months after a small army of women came forward to reveal affairs with Tiger.

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

So why did he return to the sport? "I came back as part of my job, it's what I do. Me coming back and playing had nothing to do with our decision to move our separate ways."

Asked if there were any lessons learned, Tiger says he discovered a lot about himself personally.

"You have to find the positives even though there are a lot of negatives. I think that's actually a good thing because I learned a lot about myself and how I can become a better person."

 As for relief or remorse? He says those are not quite the right words.

"More sadness. You don't ever go into a marriage looking to get divorced, that's why it is sad. My actions certainly led us to this decision. I made a lot of errors in my life. I understand that she is sad and I feel the same way."

Maybe he should of thought of that before he started sexting those other ladies.
