According to a source, tiger woods documentary is “not thrilled” with HBO’s documentary on his scandal.
According to a source close to Tiger Woods, he is not interested in viewing HBO‘s new two-part documentary Tiger because he wants to escape the awful memories of the 2009 sex scandal that destroyed his personal and professional life.
In this week’s edition of PEOPLE, a source adds, “He’s not delighted about this documentary.” “He isn’t even paying attention to it, but his circle is. They’ll inform him of what’s been stated.”
The documentary brings up sad memories for Woods, 45, that he’d rather forget.
“Why would he want to go back to this point in his life?” the insider wonders. “He couldn’t go anyplace without being questioned about his sex life by photographers. It was impossible to watch CNN news without hearing about a lady with whom Tiger had sex. It was all over the place. So Tiger isn’t overjoyed with the prospect of that happening again.”
On the day following Thanksgiving in 2009, Woods wrecked his Cadillac Escalade outside of his Florida estate, igniting the controversy. Elin Nordegren, his wife at the time, broke the vehicle’s back windows with two golf clubs. Despite Nordegren’s claim that she destroyed the windows to assist in the extraction of an incoherent Woods from the van, there was considerable belief that she did so after an altercation.
Woods was involved in an accident only days after a tabloid reported that he was having an affair with cocktail server Rachel Uchitel.
Several women came forward shortly after, claiming sexual encounters with the married golfer. Nordegren’s reputation had been tainted, and he filed for divorce in August of 2010.
Woods set out to alter his life after some extremely bad days, and pals believe he has been successful. In addition to a resurgent career, Woods maintains a close bond with his two children, Charlie, 11, and Sam, 13.
According to the source, “he reconstructed his whole life.” “He grew into a better guy and a far better father than he had been before.”

Woods’ children, according to the source, are very close to both parents.
