Tearful Cori Rist: Woods Not An Honest Man, Texted Other Women In Bed

Cori Rist, a 31-year-old single mom who has stepped forward to claim she had a two and-a-half-year affair with Tiger Woods, says the golfer told her his marriage was on the rocks.

Rist says she always suspected Tiger had other women but even she's surprised at the sheer number of women in his life.

"I'd wake up in the night and he would be texting," she tells the 'Today Show'. "I'd ask him what he was doing and he would say he was answering emails. I had this feeling. I knew it was something bigger. I don't know how he had the time to have so many women in his life."

"It's disappointing because I think we all would like to think we were special."

"I realised the things he was telling me were false. He has a way to make you believe he is a very honest and good man. I'm not saying he's not a good man, but I don't think he's an honest man."

Cori became tearful as she spoke about the hurt she had caused Elin: "I'm just sorry for her pain. I hate that I'm a part of it. I can't imagine the pain she is feeling right now. I was being selfish. I didn't think about her."

"He was not happy at home with his wife. He would stay there because she was pregnant, and they were expecting their first child. Because of his reputation and the image that he has, he had to uphold that."

Rist, who has a seven-year-old son, says she's disappointed now that she looks back at it: "I'd just say to her that I'm sorry. She's obviously having to be very strong now. I had no idea that it would be like this. I can only imagine the pain she’s feeling now, and I’m sorry. One day I'll have to look my son in the face and explain all this."

She says she began meeting Tiger after being introduced to him in 2006 in a New York club.

"A guy just approached me and said, 'Tiger Woods would like to meet you, and would you like to join us for a drink?' At the time there was nowhere else to sit, so we went over. He immediately told me a joke, broke the ice. It was very comfortable. He was funny, polite, and that just started the evening."

They would enjoy time in private residences and hotels, with rooms booked for her under various false names.

"He was good. He had people doing things for him. A lot of people would book his itineraries for me. It was under an alias. It was a long-distance relationship. Sometimes once a month, sometimes twice, sometimes not at all."

Rist says Tiger stopped calling when she refused to meet him for a rendezvous.

"He invited me to go somewhere, I said 'No' and we kind of had an argument over the fact that I don't make enough time for him."
