Woods denies physical violence, expresses regret

Posted December 2, 2009

— In a statement on his Web site Wednesday, Tiger Woods again tried to quiet the swirling rumors about what led him to crash his car early Friday morning outside his Florida home.

Since the wreck, which left Woods bloody and semi-conscious in his driveway, speculation has circulated about the state of Woods' marriage to Elin Nordegren.

Woods' statement said, in part: 

"I have let my family down and I regret those transgressions with all of my heart. I have not been true to my values and the behavior my family deserves. I am not without faults and I am far short of perfect. I am dealing with my behavior and personal failings behind closed doors with my family.  ...

"For the last week, my family and I have been hounded to expose intimate details of our personal lives. The stories in particular that physical violence played any role in the car accident were utterly false and malicious. ...

"I will strive to be a better person and the husband and father that my family deserves. For all of those who have supported me over the years, I offer my profound apology."

His comments came after Us Weekly magazine published a cover story alleging that a Los Angeles cocktail waitress had a 31-month affair with the world's No. 1 golfer.

    You mean The Tiger isn't perfect? Who knew?

    The media should give it a rest. When South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford talked openly to the media, they criticized him for not keeping his mouth shut. When Tiger Woods decided not to talk to the media, they criticized him for keeping his mouth shut. Go figure.

    I'm sure Tiger will come out of all this untarnished when the media discovers that it was actually George W. Bush's fault.

    And if there is already a girl, would you want her to read the (above) post you just wrote?

    Why do men always think its more the woman's fault than the man's?? He is just as much to blame and she is no more trashy than he is. Wish his wife had aimed that golf club where it would cause the most pain (if you know what I mean).

    Just another POS that thinks with his blank instead of his brain. Not shocking anymore. But still disgusting.
