Body language expert analyzes Tiger Woods' interviews

ORLANDO, FL (WFLX) - Tiger Woods finally answers reporter questions about the scandal surrounding his life. He agrees to two interviews over the weekend.

But is he telling the truth?

Susan Constantine heads a firm called "Silent Messages" in Orlando. We talked to her last month when Tiger read his prepared statement before a select group.

Susan says he appears to feel some remorse, but in these just released interviews, his look is the same. "People who have that flat look, the un-expressionless look, it's a way to cover what their true emotions are. They don't want the public to see that. I can come across as more credible if I don't show emotions of guilt so to speak."

Susan says that nearly anyone can be convincing in what she calls a 'five-minute face-saving interview', but he slipped up once about what did or didn't happen with his wife after his accident last Thanksgiving.

"It angers me that people would fabricate a story like that," said Woods. "Elin never hit me that night or any other night. It is all in the police report. They investigated it, and they have it on public record. There's a lot of stuff between Elin and I that will remain private."

"He didn't bring any closure to 'nothing had happened'. That's why he's avoiding answering the question. It's dodging the areas he doesn't want because he knows that's where something happened. On the plus side, Woods promptly answered all questions which tends to indicate honesty or it could be excellent preparation."
