"When he comes back to the circuit, I hope the other golfers have sewn up their money bags, because when he comes back, he'll be stronger than ever," she said.
Folstrom hopes the public will be supportive as Woods enters his next chapter.
“They’ve done a really great job of utilizing that and listening to their back girl on what is open.” The win marks six straight in home openers for Bemidji, dating back to 2014, with this being the first of the bunch to double as a season opener."I did this all on my own," she said, joking that if she'd been paid, she'd have a new truck and snowblower in her yard.Folstrom, who spoke with Sports Illustrated and People magazine after receiving multiple calls from media outlets, chose to come forward with her support after seeing the harsh treatment toward Woods in the media after he announced he had had multiple affairs during his marriage to Elin Nordegren, with whom he has two children. "Any of my friends, my close girlfriends, will say that I am so devoted and loyal and will stick up for any of them no matter what."But we were like 19 and 20 -- who thinks that far ahead?" Folstrom said there has been speculation that she was asked to speak out on behalf of Woods or that she is being compensated for doing so.
