Tiger Woods admitted his split with Lindsey Vonn has been “brutal,” and that he hasn’t slept in days. “Obviously it does affect me,” said Woods during a news conference on Tuesday at the TPC Sawgrass in Point Vedra Beach in Florida. He added, “It is rough. There’s no doubt. I’m not going to lie about that. It is tough.” See the video below.

Woods said this time of year in general is usually hard for him because his father Earl passed from cancer nine years ago on May 3. “This three-day window is really hard. I haven’t slept. It’s been these three-days, May 3 and through the 5th,” said the pro golfer, adding, “[It’s been] just brutal on me, and then with obviously what happened on Sunday [his breakup with Vonn], it just adds to it.”

As Gossip Cop reported, Vonn and Woods announced their split in separate statements, citing their “hectic” work schedules as the reason for the breakup. Vonn took to Facebook to write, “Tiger and I have mutually decided to end our relationship. I will always cherish the memories that we’ve created together.”

Woods mimicked Vonn’s sentiments, writing on his personal website, “I have great admiration, respect and love for Lindsey and I’ll always cherish our time together.” Tiger’s romance with the Olympic skier was his first relationship following his cheating scandal and subsequent divorce from Elin Nordegren.
