Tiger Woods hailed the importance of family values in an interview recorded for New Zealand television days before his car crash and subsequent scandals. "Family first and golf second—always been that way?" the interviewer asks. "Always," Woods replies," adding that having a family "is the best thing that ever happened" to him. The station had originally planned to air the interview Christmas Day, but moved the broadcast date to today, the AP reports. (More Tiger Woods infidelity stories.)
